I wake up in the morning,

Wondering what do I want from life!

I go to sleep,

Wondering,

What does life want from me?

The circular existence cannot be

The soul of life!

The trenches of pain,

Or the floating high happiness!

The comfort of company,

Or the irreconcilable separation!

The frantic search

For fulfilment,

Or the subtle joy of the moment!

Varied and variegated outlooks,

Broken, struggling to mend.

To whom does all this serve?

Or to whom does it belong?

All I have understood so far,

My vision is incomplete, fragmented

In which, is how

O life, you show yourself!

I go to sleep, wondering

Will I get an answer,

When I am awake?

Or will the answer

Awaken me from an eternal sleep!
