Poem By Anjali Mandokhot
Its not always trekking up,
Even treading down is thrilling.
Its not always the height that appeals,
Depths have their own charms.
Braving that force of earth is daring
But living at the mercy of it... even more courageous,
So if you wonderin at that sky kissing mountain,
This astounding waterfall stupefies me
And if you looking up overwhelmed by curiosity,
I am bewitched by this mysterious abyss.
For you know where to reach up there,
But there's no destination down here.
You always win up there,
But there isn't any victory downhill.
You achieve, you conquer there,
But only surrender downhill.
Why then you take pride in soaring high,
When the real invincibilities lie in depth.
Why you fooling yourself and shouting Eureka!
When you fear even to look back at depth.
So calm down O! ambitious creeper,
And have a look down back,
And before you tread on your journey further,
Ponder! How you will bridge the gap?
