Flightless Stairs

(Dedicated to the lost lives and unheard cries of those in Tibet)

To climb its steps
Reach its pinnacle
To find what’s
Hidden
What’s Unknown
A mystery unsolved
A goal not achieved
A line not crossed
A message not read
I try and falter
Tumble and fall
Every Step’s
In air
Climbing these
Flightless Stairs

In Seclusion
Lies there
Woes of men
Of a nation Torn
In Obscurity
Withers away
Stories of Valour
Of freedom
Yet I try
To reach them
Free them
Fight for names Lost
And lives shattered
My efforts
In vain
Climbing these
Flightless Stairs
