The road oft traveled

On a road oft traveled, the one that leads to something
We all traverse, trudging on, plodding on in anticipation
That it will lead us somewhere, to an end that is coveted.

We walk, at times alone and single, at others with a mate
Who in sickness and in health has vowed to be by our side
Silently supporting, holding our hand and encouraging us.

This path that we take in life, this road that we traverse
Is often riddled, potholed with swamping emotions like
Depression, frustration, anger, avarice, ego and apathy.

They constantly accompany us even as we try to negotiate
The pitfalls that wait at every step, bait us at every turn.
And yet, we continue to walk, to advance, to fight our way
All in search of the coveted, and yet unknown prize at the end.

About Sonal Singh

I believe that life is a repertoire of anecdotes. The various situations that we encounter, the many incidents of every day, the people we meet, our conversations with them; all make life a melange of tales. And, that is what I attempt to capture through my writing. My cooking is no different! It reflects my love for travel and my love for innovation. The kitchen is my happy place. So, even though by vocation I am a recruiter (www.rianplacements.com), by passion I am a writer, home chef and a hodophile.
