A Quest on Overdrive … :)

An eccentric rambler on life's lessons and mercies, found and lost… :)

Random Rambles


Have you ever thought
How strange but true
It is-

That the highest mountain
Will seem so easy to climb,
But the little hillocks around
So insurmountable!

That the widest river
You shall conquer, perhaps,
Though it take time,
But the puddles at the doorstep
You’d hesitate to cross!

That the thickest woods
You’d dare to explore,
But shirk from walking
That mile, through the fields!

That lofty ideals are
Ever appealing
Ever in sight,
But the steps to them
Ever a hindrance
Always that step too distant!

What a fickle thing
The mind is-
Always wanting
Little attempting!
