THE BEATEN TRACK

(Following Beaten Tracks, may not always lead to the place  you wanted to go)

Lost in the jungle wild
Stare of tall trees won’t guide
It must be a day so bright
But, I knew not where the lights hide
Can’t hear this silence offer clue
For the road where this wild ends

I reached here like all who do
All whom destiny sends
One step, then next, I’ve moved along
But ahead, I do not tread
Though been walking long
Still lie submerged in this spread

I come across a beaten track
Echoing sounds of footsteps been
Taking home many a soul
For now, a belief, unseen

Beaten tracks that once made home
May with time grow bare
Once ending on a highway road
Untravelled, obliterated, end nowhere
My search, hence, lingers on
A tiring chase will move on
Beaten tracks will not always do
The roads I make will take me through.
