Loved Labyrinth – An Axiom
You always despised it, never thought of doing it,
You called it a trap, loved labyrinth of steps - chaotic yet orderly and in sequence
You laughed at people, at times sniggered at them – deriving pleasure in the maze
They called it an inevitable, inescapable destiny- natural progression of a common man; an inalienable axiom
You differed not with the axiom but with the application – it applied to an average man not a common man
This is what you always believed – pious faith, yes it was.
But alas! You don’t decide what you do – “the coded axiom”
You never realized when you had entered the maze,
By the time, you deciphered the code, you were there.
Flavors had taken precedence over substance.
Midway, you understood the essence of the puzzle – “loved labyrinth of steps”
This maze is different; here you don’t get lost till long, so long,
You don’t hit a dead-end; every end has some new openings,
Every passage looks logical progression from the last one.
Innumerable footsteps from your predecessors as well as co-travelers make you believe – you are on the “Right Path”.
By the time you would reach the dead-end, you would have lost the energy and enthusiasm to brood over;
Many take the last wall as the ultimate destiny – a pre decided act,
Some repent and remorse, few dare to return to clear the footsteps – an act of misgivings!
