Walking barefoot on a deserted beach
The restless oceans roars
The cool sea breeze is no longer soothing
Each grain of sand I step on
Leaves me gritty with dissatisfaction
Dissatisfaction with life!
Dissatisfaction with existence itself!
Loneliness now; once solitude
Now an unbearable burden!
In this journey of life
I have walked too far away!
Too far away from the face of normality!
Through roads not traveled by
Through mountains and valleys
To a jungle of thoughts and insight
I now stand here alone!
No one else can see my unprecedented plight!
No one else can feel; no one else can understand!
The view from my pointless eyes!
Too mystical for the scientific
Too scientific for the mystical
Too spiritual for the atheist
Too blasphemous for the pious
Too nihilistic; too eternal
Too cynical! Too philosophical!
My words resonate as a mere heretic!
Can’t anyone see the common face of reality?
Can’t anyone see the beauty of its sempiternal smile?
In this journey, to the peak of understanding
With no one to speak the same language
With no one to share the same cup of tea
Caught up in a forest of feelings
Oh! How long can I walk alone in silence?
