The Otherworldly Search

By: Mehak Jain


Surrounded by high rise buildings
I try to look at the world beyond,
but the light dazzles my sight
and the clutter shuts my ears.

Another dusk, another dawn
I was never anything but a pawn.
As years went by, i kept looking for the 'why'
in the flower blooms, 
in the smoke fumes,
in the dead sea,
in the song of honey bee,
in Shakespeare's Othello,
in Adele's Hello,
in those lofty dreams,
in those scary screams,

But oh! how I realized the silly me ,
the world i set out looking for,
was inside me.
