Metaphor for Guidance: A Quest for Independence Read Here

Companion in the Quest

A metaphor for the destination is you

For my guidance

Don’t stray so far, that then

I get lost in the search for you

You don’t know

Beyond the reach of my feelings

My imagination

It’s only you

Don’t disgrace my shattered independence

So that after losing you

Even a particle dares to challenge me

Even a breeze carries me away

To the direction you don’t desire

The grasp of my flight, my growth

Companion in the quest

Aslam Murad
