An Endless Journey

Poem By Parameswaran K V


We sought man in God,
God in man
and missed both.

We sought light in darkness,
darkness in light
and were always blind.

We saw plenty in nothing,
nothing in plenty
and were always poor.

We spun truths out of lies,
lies out of truths
and were lost in half truths.

We sought happiness,
we sought perfection;
What we got were mirages
and an endless journey

Other poems of K V


Silent and obscure,
Creeping under the bush,
Gathering force,

I Stood There Waiting

I stood there waiting
for a gap in the traffic
to cross the highway.

Blessed Are We

Blessed are we
That we are not
Among those tossing in the sea
In little dinghies


He was handsome,
bowing under the weight of the cross,
bleeding from the flagellations,
yet pained at the thought

I Was Not There

I was not there
when the lilacs bloomed
wriggling in the slime
feeding them with the goodness of the earth.
