When I got bored with my routine, It offered me A day at the beach Amusements are spread, All over the world But who said, They fascinate us all? It is a misconception The waves were so incredible, So unique, yet so similar They were flowing so independently. Coming towards me, Charged with dignity But when the devil, Corrupted my mind, They seemed like the villain Of a story, Coming to kill, Intending for destruction But then when in my right mind. They appeared like some angel, Rushing to save me From a world full of hate A world full of all negativities Where the evil-doers Do not stop for sleep Where the devil, Is always available I felt they were, Coming to embrace me They could capture people too, And kidnap them But for those Who are done with life, The waves act as rescuers, From the tyrannies of this world. My heart instructed me to, Spend my days and nights Hearing their silent, Yet such loud screams The waves, That took my breath away, That made me pick my pen Hence, I shall question thee That who is lucky? Is it me? Who was blessed enough? To allow the waves to move her? But I know That these waves, Are a sign of my Lord The way they lash Break against the rocks The way their sound Horrifies, so many, This is His Magnificence Therefore we all shall thank Him, For providing us with such incomparable beauty Published in Daily Times, December 5th 2018.
