The Window To The Beyond

There’s a window just a little open,
What lies beyond isn’t certain
Some say there’s sadness, some say there’s bliss,
Some say it’s just nothingness
But a nothingness you could never miss ?

There’s a window just a little open,
What lies beyond isn’t certain.
Infinite possibilities lay ahead, some say
Once you dive in, it’s a whole new universe I heard
Isn’t it intimidating this endless expanse?

There’s a window just a little open,
What lies beyond isn’t certain.
Greater than the four walls of your mind
More enthralling than the twinkling stars at night
A simple word would never suffice?

If there’s a window just a little open,
And what lies beyond is uncertain.
Would you step out into the unknown?
The unknown that’s thrilling and yet terrifying
Would you take the plunge into the absolute Universe?

The Universe inside you

  1. Guess the window leads to a journey depending on what one expects, endless opportunities or nothing. Words that make the reader introspect are powerful, just like here.

        What a lovely thought!! We take very long to see inside ourselves, where we find all answers. Just waste time looking for them every where else. Loved this piece

    Its always amazing how scared people are of looking inside themselves, of what shadows or light they’ll find when they do. Loved how you have woven the within and without.

    Beautiful lines, Leha. And especially “Greater than the four walls of your mind

    Yes, we should think beyond the fours walls, or we can say out of the box. This curiosity will stay until we cross beyond this window. Quite a thought-provoking.
