Just when I thought I had my share,
Just when I thought it was over,
I heard a voice,
‘There is always more to the story‘.
I looked out into the darkness,
out of my window,
staring at distant light.
I felt a touch which was untouched and pristine.
She said, ‘You might be wondering, Who am I?’
‘I am a darkest shades of black and the lightest shades of white.’
‘I am KARMA’
‘The one whom you all call,
a bittersweet bitch..!!’
As my emotions takes over,
my heart was doing somersaults.
Then she said, ‘I know, how are you feeling.’
‘Nobody is happy all the time.’
‘You think, you have lost the battle?
‘I have rained them on you.’
‘Do you know why?’
‘Sometimes you have to suffer in life,
not because you were bad.
But because, you didn’t realized,
where to stop being good.’
‘Nothing remains the same in life.’
‘I can turn the tables anytime,
Just remember that,
all the shits someone put you through,
sooner or later,
finds it’s way back to them.’
I closed my mind,
before my heart could wander off.
Then I realized,
She had a point..!!
I walked out into the light searching for her.
The more I wanted her,
the more she was getting hard to find.
Then I heard her voice again;
‘I saw that.’
‘Have faith in the power of time,
and trust in the cycle of Karma.
I’ll meet you at the end of the story.’
Then, I asked her, ‘Why me?’
With my raging voice,
I told her,
I hate you for the way you are smiling at me.
I hate you for hanging up on me.
I hate you for the times you didn’t turned up.
I hate you for the way you made me feel,
when you knew I was not wrong.
The time stood still…
I felt a fiery firestorm,
and I heard her voice again;
‘It doesn’t matter, if you like me or not.
That’s your cross to bear afterall.
You think, I am just a fool,
Blaming me for mistakes, you people make,
when it’s your own bed, what you made.’
I felt a renewed fear surge through my veins.
Before I could say,
She said straightway;
‘Learn to distinguish who deserves an explanation,
who deserves only one answer,
and who deserves absolutely nothing.’
‘With your every mistakes,
Learn the lesson it makes.
Or I will let you dig your own grave
and I won’t come in your way.’
‘So, just breathe and walk away’
‘Let me deal with them,
and if you’ll be lucky,
I’ll let you watch that game.’
I felt her floating away,
giving a sense of hope to the dark recesses of my brain.
All the bullshits that I have received,
it’s time for them to pay.
There is always more to a story,
She gave me a reason to live again.
And yet I slept in peace that night,
When I realized,
I dreamt of her with an open eyes.
But then she crossed my mind again,
‘I am not a revenge or a punishment,
I am a mirror of your soul’s mistake.
Words can lie but eyes will not,
People will forget,
But me, KARMA will not.’
