The Maze

Satyakam Ray

A circular maze
with perfect hinge
An analogy to life
or, an indelible cryptic!

Searching for answers
From crib to the grave
To some questions known
and some delusions

Running round and round
Banging along the walls
To just keep moving
survive or crack the puzzle?

The maze-a perfect citadel
of optimism and persepectives
or a crescendo of confusions
if steered in wrong prospectives

Propelled by the agility
of social life and peers
Navigating the circles
to find treasure like seer

The Pursuit is over
Upon reaching the center
Got the answers I seek
Wait, Do the questions still matter?

It’s still a maze
with its tricks and turns
Mocking life and beliefs
with sheer grin!
