Her Gaze

When a child peeks out of the window, what does she see? A world annexed by adults who are impossibly taller than her. She can't help wonder what lies beyond what she's able (or should we say, allowed) to look at. There's so much going on and so many words exchanged.

Most of them don't even make sense to her innocent mind. Regardless, she likes being alive and part of this fledgling scheme called family. She finds comfort in love and friendship. It's only when she moves away from the living room towards the window that questions flood her.

The trick behind growing up hasn't really hit her yet. As of now, she's the only constant in this ever-mobile universe. Amazing! She stands there short with her eyes stretching wide open. Someday, she'll be on the other side of the window. The only problem is, will she seek answers or will she keep moving like the rest of us? 


  1. In this over intrusive world,knowing yourself is the beginning of all wisdom.There is neither HAPPINESS nor misery in the world.There is only the comparison of one state with another, nothing MORE. She who has felt the deepest grief is best able to experience supreme happiness. We must have felt what it is to die,that we may appreciate the enjoyments of life.As one of my Fav Author Coelho has put into words like this "The SECRET OF LIFE, though, is to fall seven times and to get up eight times."So ,the unexamined life lacks the much needed ecstasy of Sheer mystery which is quite enthralling & beguiling . It is not so much the major events as the small day-to-day decisions that maps the course of our living. . . Our lives are, in reality, the sum total of our seemingly unimportant decisions and of our capacity to live by those decisions.So to live is not just to seek answers but also attain the ultimate wisdom .....Probe the earth to see where your main roots run
    As far as your write up is concerned , it never fails to Amaze me Lad!!! keep on writing & amaze us with your beautiful verses in days to come !!! Words fail to describe how poignant this piece of writing is !!! keep up the good work

  2. the bunch of people on other side of "her" window are just the one who envy about the the life on the other side of the window.
