SHEPHERD BOY

 

SHEPHERD BOY

 

 

Who would have known that you will grow into such a status?
I remembered when you were tender, tending your Father’s sheep near my farm
You were full of dreams…
Your questions were unlimited…

The City

You wondered about life in the city
Thinking heaven could be there
Your imagination of its beauty and glamour knows no bounds!
Little did you know about the sorrows in its depths…
The crimes…
The mystery in the noise and bustle…
Even daytime and nighttime have little difference…
On and on the count goes…

Fantasies

You lived daily in your fantasies
The intensity ever increasing
You keep believing one day you will grow wings and fly there…

The King

The city became yours
Shepherd boy…
So you were royalty?
Who could have known?
You sneaked into the city because your entry was not triumphant…
No one knew how you got your crown…
Someone has to know…
Whatever
You are not only part of it, you are now KING of the city!!

In Your Memories…

Will you in your flashback?
Oh, that you would look back to those days
The farm
Your father’s cattle and sheep
Even the goats
And I, coming everyday on my bicycle…
I have grown old now
White hair all over my head
The wrinkles on my face and skin are obvious…
Sometimes looking at the mirror, I wondered at the stranger staring at me
Could you still recognise me?

Life

The fullness of life lies in the gift and acceptance of dreams
Have faith and hope
And when you believe, miracles will overflow your life…
Do not forget to give back what you received
For in making yourself a vessel in the hands of Providence shall you be fulfilled…

…Love

…and love shall always find you worthy of itself
Your joys and laughter shall overwhelm every tear that will trouble you
For the world will be yours!!!

King David

Remember David in the Bible?
He was also a Shepherd boy…
