For the Journey.

Sandakphu. October 2019

A pack of warriors, striding ahead

Towards that mountain top, snow-capped

Bathed in sunlight like pure gold

Mesmerizing, mysterious and unmapped.

Trampling on icicles, leaves and mud

Sweat and dirt trickle down the skin

Dreary eyes aim to reach the peak

Before the darkness comes in.

Stomping boots, thumping chests

The warriors bear the pain

Of sack-bearing shoulders and weary knees

In the hope of glittering gain.

Everything around seems a shadow

They see only the prized goal

Ignoring the smell of trees and hum of crickets

Beckoning to them from the mountain’s soul.

When they reach, barren land

Meets them, a shroud of fog around

Finally at their goal, they know

The journey was what their heart found.
