Looking at the still water of the lake

My doubts speak for themselves

Every quarrel, every fight

Lost their meaning

Lost their sense to the peaceful bay

I rest myself on the empty bench

As I walk miles on the lonely bank

I think of my past, and dream about my future

I breathe the fresh air and feel the shiver

Far away from the noisy street

Far away from the life of concrete

I love to stroll around this beautiful lake

Birds witnessing expressions of mine

Cool breeze calming my angered mind

While I jog around

This lake is nothing but life

And I am like the still water

But my heart refuses to be stagnant

It wants to be the river

Wants to break the boundaries

Boundaries that never let me escape

The water in the lake must feel the same

Its boundaries have locked it in

Never letting the life escape

But one day there will be a flood

And one day I’ll be free

Hoping the flood won’t bring destruction

But a new dawn of spring on a barren land.
