Journey towards Light

Rajendra Ojha (Nayan)

Black holes of trauma present in life,
Sucks out all of the lights from life.
But we don’t know what our destiny will be,
If the ‘trauma’ turned into the ‘White Dwarf’!

The path of trauma is usually destined,
yet with a huge bang of pain, it emerges.
With the flow of venom through the vocal cords of the nearest ones,
This trauma transfers to the heart, and then:
attacks the souls with weak minds.

Those actions that emerge from traumatic blackouts;
leads the karma-yogi to the path towards light.
However, during this magnificent journey—
towards the eternal light,
Crows can easily become ‘Raven’.
