SECRETS OF THE SOUL 11 - EXISTENTIAL DILEMMA



SECRETS OF THE SOUL 11 - EXISTENTIAL DILEMMA

Existential Dilemma - 11

I seek the secrets of the soul,
From the fragrance of the jasmine,
That I smelt in the tresses on her head,
And as the cool wind blew caressing,
The strands of hair flew, obscuring my face,
She slowly slid away, leaving me cold and stiff,
And as I stood at the edge of the cliff,
Looking down at the chasm below,
“To be or not to be” as Hamlet strode,
Up and down in existential dilemma,
I retraced my steps and walked away,
May be there shall come another day.

Lovely lines. Reminds me of the dialogue in an old Tamil movie, "Thiruvalaiyadal" - 'Pengalil koondalil Iyarkai manam Undo?'

Another day is not like this day
And you will seek the secret all over again!

I think Life is a set of undulating experiences and each leaves us richer. So let's enjoy the fragrance when it is available which would warm our soul even after it leaves. Otherwise our self would be locked up in the cold dungeons of our rational thought with no chances of escape.
