square garden

Step by step
I walk the path
That squares the garden
The step increases the speed
To escape slumber
To burn another calorie
To fuel the heartbeat
The source- the garden
Which is over brimming with life
The kid there knows what life is
The mother playing with him knows how life is
The person walking behind me knows
How many more kilometers to walk
I see people walking ahead of me
I slow down not to to overtake them
But I know how it feels to lag behind
I go green seeing the grass so lean
I long to be a baby sitting
The one over the grass
So ignorant
I crave to take a moment and lie on the grass
Gasp a breath of air
To exorcise me
Exhume the soul dormant inside me
But alas, my legs hate to stop
Its taken its path
The stones that square the garden
That borders life
Confines happiness
In the nature to its inside
Its mundane outside
Where people drive and shout
When the sun blocking glasses
Blind them to see the pristine spring
The aged chat of years of glory
Live every moment of their life
That shall soon cease
My legs can’t stop
My eyes hate to blink
For it craves for that fling
Those two kids have
For minutes in their game
My legs go fatigue
Yet they walk like a headless man
For its path shall never change
I walk on that path
Regretting every moment
I have miles to go before I blink
Oh, I have miles to go to burn those calories
