Yaatra

These unfamiliar winding paths
knocking at
unknown fortresses

A wayward inn,
covered in smoke
 from an extinguished oil-lamp

Wait here a while;
there's no time
 to lie down and sleep.

Before the night ends
pack up your bag
 and get going.

You have to reach
 the distant land
on the other side.

This is a journey
where you never see again
 the path you leave behind.

This is a journey
where those gone this way
never come back to tell the story.
