The Sound That Came

There's a sound somewhere
but I am going to sleep
I will try my best
not to get disturbed
by this beep.
So I close my eyes
and switch off the lights,
paving way
for a sleep of anonymous kind
to engulf me
in its agitated sojourn.

Woke up
after all these years
with a wound in my head
that scratches me,
and a pain in my heart
that perturbs me, more and more;
I wish
I had listened
to the sound that day.

yaar,yeh toh 'cause and effect' waali poem ho gayi. What was the sound!!!!??????


Rishi Bhai its about 'inner voice', 'conscience'.

The realization or the value of ones conscience might not be sudden. It is perhaps felt most when, with passage of time, one notices ones lack of peace and satisfaction (his success notwithstanding). It's in times like that he wonders and realizes that once there was a sound which had told him so but was neglected (though subconsciously it always remained).

And when this realization is complete, he laments, if only he had listened to the voice earlier.
