So I waited – Reflection of a journey within

So I WaitedThe first time I was introduced to ‘life’
I saw a ray of light, bright enough to show me all there is
Chaos..all around
I thought..wait..maybe theres more to it
So I waited..I learnt how you walked
moving people and objects were no more a chaos

Then I heard your meaningless…endless..blabbering
I thought..wait..maybe theres more to it
So I waited..I learnt what you spoke
I found an expression

I waited more..I discovered the other ways you expressed
They were more than I could count
Sometimes you cried, other times you just smiled
Somedays you screamed, other days you forgave
There were times when you burnt the house with anger
Then there were moments you could bloom a lotus with your peace

Suddenly the wait was over
When you taught me love
I thought..that is it..this is all there to know..this is all there to do
Then I started loving
I thought this is ‘life’..yes..this is what they called ‘life’ back there

Then what happened
One day you taught me how to lie
You said..wait..theres more to it
So I waited..

You filled my heart with hatred
You said..wait..theres more to it
You taught me how to unleash the evil within
I learnt that there were more ways to do it
More than I could count
Somedays I was violent, others days just plain brutal
Sometimes I cheated, other times I betrayed
There were times when I was scheming all day
Then there were moments when I witnessed the animal in me

You said..my wait was over
This is it..this is all there to know..this is all there to do
This is ‘life’..yes..this is what we call ‘life’ here

Then what you said turned into a meaningless..endless..blabber
Moving people and objects were a chaos
I saw a ray of light, bright enough to show me all there is
Chaos..all around
That was first time I was introduced to ‘life’
