Worlds Apart…

Reading Time: 1 minute

There are the tussle and turmoil between the mundane and the noble worlds, in Aishwarya’s verse, in .

En route this journey of life…

through the concrete jungle, lands,

mountains, rivers n’ terrains,

through the sunrise, sunset n’ twilight,

in situations favourable n’ unfavourable,

trying to meet the daily needs, while

fighting against the odds for survival,

handling the egos n’ the attitudes,

sifting the real from the surreal,

all this while still being connected

to the earthy elements n’ values inherent

is the world to which I belong today!


Yet, I dream of belonging to a blissful world –

that is liberated from the chaos n’ ordeals,

enriched in the reverie of the misty ethereal,

with an essence of humanity n’ bonding,

enshrined in , mesmerised in ,

drifting from to to ,

sitting quietly on the rocks by the calm seas,

under the n’ the starlit dark sky,

with soft music of nature whispering in my ears

offering the much needed respite n’ solace.


Oh! How I wish such a world did exist –

for this is just the place where I want to belong,

but, I know it’s all a wishful dream, and

that they are two Worlds apart…
