Where And Why?

Ehsan Sehgal

No desires
No hope
No dreams
Nor wait
I am a pain
For nothing is there
To cure it
There is no comfort
I'm such a traveller,
Who is yet far
From the destination
I don't remember
Any prayer
I am just silence
I keep going,
But I don't know
Where and why?
For whom?
I'm a long way off
And don't know
How far is it
I reach there or don't
I don't know
I don't know
