An Undying Quest
For all time dark and light,
Even if the endeavor speaks of pertinacious travails,
The ray of hope will not be far out of sight.
Change is the only constant, they say
Evil might metamorphose into an angel,
Someone’s love might transform into their prey.
Courage and Hope are obstreperous,
It is the key necessary for survival.
The human brain in itself is perspicacious.
Humans are mere mortals.
With erratic perpetual emotions and fickle-minded decisions,
Faith in yourself will help you cross the hurdles.
Love is pellucid- the cure out of the menace,
It encompasses the acceptance of affection unconditional and where you lose your mind,
The capturing feelings over the heart are the most powerful bind.
The insipid is broken by the undying beguiling nature,
Its intoxication is an absolute trance that captures your soul,
And engrosses one into its obscure and ravishing world.
Ambulating the not so common road,
Fighting the aberrant and tasting the crescendo of joy and success,
Is what will transform you into an undying legend.
