starlight express


I walk towards the station,
and await the approaching train...
looking back one last time,
at those memories on 'nostalgia' lane...

cos the 'starlight express' is coming,
to take me far away...
into a land where wishes are granted,
and dreams are there to stay...

a land where feelings are treasured,
and friendships forever last...
where only happiness is eternal,
and hurt, a thing of the past...

where the present shows a future,
a promising one indeed...
where health & prosperity lingers,
in sickness and in need...

where the whole world stands united,
and the only religion is 'love'...
where evil dare not cast its shadow
in fear of the one above...

I am waiting at the station,
with my baggage left behind,
the heart surprisingly tranquil,
no second thoughts cross my mind...

cos the 'starlight express' is coming,
to take me far away...
as i am beckoned into this journey,
a journey through a brand new day!!


~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
writer's note: "starlight express" is about a real journey to an imaginary place---a place i visit every night and am made to return from in the morning..and yes, it is named 'starlight express' for a reason!! :)

It reminds me of a poem in Hindi titled 'Vishwarajya'...

its like:

dharti ko hum kaante chhantein,
to us amber ko bhi baante,
ek anil hai, ek salil hai, ek pawan sanchaar,
kaho tumhari janmbhoomi ka hai kitna vistaar...

vishwarajya jo loktantra hai,
sab dharmon ka, sab varno ka ek jahaan adhikaar.


Nice read, but why is it starlight?


Cheers,

@ Blasphemous Aesthete
that is Beautiful, anshul..thankyou so much for sharing :)

as for 'starlight express', i had thought of posting it without the note at the end, initially..
was kinda hoping the title would say it all & hence the name :)
