The jungle

Don't go in that direction there is a jungle there
Heard it so many times so far
But my feet unknowingly drag me to the jungle
For in my mind dwells the question
What lies there? What lies there?

If life is a discovery why not me go there
See the green foliages the frugiferous trees , the blooms of spring
The thorns so sharp
The dreaded man-eating trees
The deathly spheres

In the dead of the night we hear
The sweet songs of the silence
And the piercing cries
And we wonder are ghosts there?

The day is not far
As the jungle I will enter
For I have to discover
This life and what lies there.

I try to unravel the mysteries
And I will share with all my stories.
