A Moment’s Clarity

A Moment’s Clarity

Through the dusty expanse of glass windows,

I looked blaring traffic lights in the eye.

Contemplated all my life’s ifs, buts and sos,
 
struggled between lies and honesty, virtue and vice.
 
Found that everything I wanted,
 
was ten times the size of what I had now.
 
Realized that under all that valour I was a frightened child.
 
Felt like I had to bridge the gaps but HOW.
 
A blessed droplet of water trickled from above,
 
trickled unto the bottom of the window pane.
 
It wiped clear a long thin wavy line of dust.
 
And there was clarity at last, for a single moment, once again.
Spread the love
