to the moon and back...

there was a girl...who like any other girl..loved to dream..and wanted to make a diffrence in the world...she packed her bags..and without telling anyone from her place...she took off...and went to the nearest bus stand from where buses took off to distant lands...there were many people around her...who like her too..had a dream..or who were sucessful in persuing a dream and now their life had no more meaning...in short...every1 who stood near her were in need of an adventure which wud change their life forever...or at least momentarily...
the bus blew its first horn..it was time to go.
the bus driver was a wierd man..every1 said...as when a passenger asked amiably,which route the bus will take...all the bus driver said was"we r going to follow the moon,whose light and guidance will lead us along the path of our destination."
and thats what they did the whole night,they followed the moon...heading from darkness to light,from ignorance of the past,2 persue a better brighter future,yet trapped in the solitude of d present.

the bus was crossing a bridge and from the window,the girl saw a 40 watt bulb light hanging from a small single boat alone in the vast black sea...she thot how similar her life is to that lonely boat,whose purpose was also to seek an absolution from the solitude,seeking for that other lighted boat across the dark sea...but cudnt find any...
"if only i cud see...if only i cud find...",thot the girl....
and just as if the man sitting next to her read her mind,said,"you dont always need to search for your soul in some 1 else, you knw, my friend,lonliness is just a state of mind,my friend...its us who can get rid of that feeling or let it take over majority of our thoughts...your own arms shud keep u warm on cold and lonely nights.im not saying man can live to b a lonely soul...and thats why god made friends...who can turn out to b our only saving grace...that lonely boat u see there,isnt actually lonely u knw...that light emitted from it shows that the persons heart is full of hope and faith..and 1 day...if its in his destiny,he will find his other boat...however...even if he doesnt...he shudnt lament on the fact..and shud carry on wit his life...and looking at a fisher mans lonely life..im sure he wont have any problem.."
he said a lot more things...sometimes deviating from the topic of discussion,he forced upon her...however..what she did remember was a statement he made towards the end ....
"my child,god made us all alone...only to seek a purpose...our other half...some of us are lucky to find purpose sooner than others.the others...will face a tough path...yet when they find what they truely were searching for...the fruits to their toil are more satisfying...more contenting...so my dear child...seek your purpose..and god bless you...for i pray for ur goodness and life...."
