Crossroads – By Dr. Ritu Dewan

Crossroads – By Dr. Ritu Dewan

Each step I take

I find new crossroads

Arms wide open

One step


Hundred paths cropping

I want to tread them all

I love

Their experiences and their dreams

All seem true

A sad yearning envelops me

I want to enter into the depths

I don’t know what I ‘ll find

I see

A spark of diai in every stone

That every heart has a restless soul


Every voice has an epic pathos

In a second

I want to race through them all

I wish to swim through every heart.


I live myself in many ways

How strange is life 

Giving me a story

Whenever I stand or talk

I discover big novels,

Sad stories,happy tales,

Passionate outbursts

Angry grievances,

Pride justified,characters dissected

Poems of love,

Passion of promise,


And Obituaries


When I gather them all


I feel

I must live more

At home


I find crossroads

Dividing in hundred


Novel sights and subjects

Meet me

And I feel

Life’s span is measured


One can’t measure them all.
