Poet's conversation with the Self.

A chapter in the book Random Reflections.

The Pilgrim Soul.

by Niyuta

"Alone you arrived in this world; alone you shall leave,"
That was my Subconscious who spoke to me.
"What is a point then, in hanging onto those relationships?
Each one built with care while traveling from the birth to golden days.
Or, wandering aimlessly, like an Albatross*, in the memory lanes?
Some were dear to my heart, others- best forgotten.
Is there then a purpose in this coming and going?" I asked my soul.
"Isn't it a passing of the pilgrim soul?"
The Self gave a rhetorical question instead.

It's a random reflection on why and what we hold onto from our past-A search for the truth in things, episodes and people we hold onto.

Simile* :Wandering Albatross, or Goonie bird, is a large snowy seabird that travels between the two poles.
Pays one point and 2 member cents.
