On The Long Way Of My Life

On the long way of my life

I was walking freely with my shadow

With a confidence

To complete my journey.

I thought

I would surely reach my destination

In a happy mood;

On many a stone in the way

I felt rosy softness.

But suddenly

A dark black crow came

And stole my shadow,

Leaving me all alone on the path.

Every stone was attracting me;

I could not fight alone with those stones;

Ah! I was crushed on the long way of my life.
