I am like water

Note:- I am not trying to write a poem. Its just that, I found that this is the easiest way to put my thoughts on paper.


I am just like water.

I randomly fell somewhere on earth from sky.

Sometimes in the plains near the sea, but sometimes in the mountains.

Wherever I am born, I have only one purpose.

To follow the path laid down before my eyes and reach sea.

For some people it takes more time, for others less.

But I cannot stop.

Its my divine purpose and I have to fulfill it.


Reaching the sea is easy.

I dont need to think about it, or struggle for it.

The path is already setup by a divine force,

which is constantly guiding me.

All I have to do is trust it and follow it.

There can be rocks, pools, lakes, falls on the way.

But I cannot stop anywhere.

I cannot complain the roughness of the path.

And when I realize my true self,

I understand that I am still unscathed.

    sea and death!!
    good one..I think you should write more poems

    • thanks…
      but by sea what i actually meant was samadhi, not death.

      very difficult to express ur thoughts. but with simple short lines i can do it, without worrying much about writing standards.

  2. Whether or not you are tryimg to write a poem, I enjoyed your verse. On the path to samadhi there are many turns in the river and falls along the path, aren’t there? The good thing is that in a life well traveled there can be much “santosha” along the path to bliss. Carry on good traveler!
