I gaze into the space infinite, sparkling with stars countless,
While I voyage through the tar and bricks, where one is there, yet so faceless.
The moon follows my steps; it shines in all its glory,
Ah the benevolence it radiates; and I know that I am not solitary.
I reach my vacant dwelling; all weary and comfortless,
No one to wipe my silent tear; not a soul to whom I can undress,
Listless I gaze up again; and am met with mates illimitable,
Their splendor lifts my sullen face, and I know I am indomitable.
The birds are chirping and the sun has risen, freeing from the night’s embrace,
My mates have vanished and my grit is waning; the unsparing world again I have to face.
A fragrant breeze wafts from nowhere and brushes softly against my face,
I consume its ambrosial, rejuvenating scent; and I know that I am safe.
I set out again on my journey; the expedition for excellence and accolades,
I must brave the maddening tussle; I am sure I don’t want to fade.
The sun shines blazes on other’s heads; they think it is cruel,
But I see its unique hue of red; and I know that I am real.
I have lasted an another; a day of trial and tribulations,
Spoken to by a million tongues; but not a sign of appreciation.
It’s late and I walk back home; for them I have nothing but pity,
The moon comes back and I look at it; and I know that I am not empty.
