Journey’s End

Poem By Bhaswat Chakraborty

This is where the journey ends
And therefore, we can call it home
All the knowledge of navigation
Finds a rest here
And therefore, we can call it home

This is where we get a bit of affection
A smile, even a touch and hug
This is where the things are simple
And therefore, we can call it home

This is where the struggling feet
Slow down and dance a little
This is where you can sit for a while
And therefore, we call it a home

Be it a journey from a town to another
Or from birth to death
Even if it is a journey of several lifetimes
Through wisdom, truth and energy
Or through folly, helplessness or misery
Wherever we can surrender
our burdens of both good and evil
Wherever we rest, we can call it home

About seventy years ago
All said and done
There is now peace – peace aglow



I am a little petal of hue and smell
I am gorgeous you can tell


Of all human manifestations
May I say, you are the greatest
As you give milk, food and protection
What to say of love, peace and rest!
