Narrative Poem- Where did he go?

A journey of a guy from deserts to plain. He reaches his destination through obstacles. Now, it depends on you how you perceive his trail!!

Here comes my first narrative poem:

In the diverse regions of Earth,
Numerous life, nature brings forth.

Long time back lived an inhabitant,
Form the desert, resources not scant.

His group roamed in a caravan,
Their entire life-span.

They halted on speculating an oasis,
Their ultimate supporting basis.

That sustained them for a limited time,
For that guy, short duration was not sublime.

He believed in the  perks of plains,
Cultivated there, were adequate grains.

His opinion of shifting from that place,
Was never an option for his race.

Violating what the others asserted,
He eluded from them, even if it hurted.

He traversed the arid sandy region,
To a destination, distant from his legion.

He overcame a deadly sandstorm,
Battled a barren landform.

That moment, he recalled his tribe left behind,
Was easier to overcome with his humankind.

He made his way by utilising his brain,
Remained persevering through his pain.

Outlying then, a mountain stood staring,
In intention of questioning his daring.

When he had courage, not mortal,
Bowed down the massive hurdle.

Accompanied hardship of ascent,
Comparatively, easier the descent.

Analogy of bitter efforts for success,
Advanced successive progress.

His checkpoint looked closer now,
But, didn’t lose his enthusiasm anyhow.

Across the cold untamed stream,
Situated his longing dream.

Traversed the stream into unseen land,
His accomplishment appeared so grand.

Welcomed by fields of exotic plantation,
Colourful flowers with incredible sensation.

The folk apprehended sound of money,
To fulfill life, required to spend penny.

Accommodated in one of the housing,
As he appeared, to them quite doubting.

He endeavoured, dripping in sweat,
To pay off his long-term debt.

Reminded with the notion of harmony,
How his clan lived in the synchrony.

So different were those strangers,
Similar to the unnamed dangers.

Where did he just reach?
What left for life to preach?

Should have survived initial condition
Or had exactly targeted his ambition.

  1. I think the guy was overwhelmed by the multitude of diversity. Fear of uncertainty overshadowed his initial enthusiasm. With the reality sinking in, he would manage to mingle with the locals and live a solitary anonymous life for the rest of his life. That’s my thinking.

    Well written as always.

    • It’s nice to hear from you!!

      Yes, that may be true!!

      Maybe he becomes a source of inspiration for others through his journey and spread the idea of harmony!

      Maybe some more of his tribe show courage of exploring outer world!

      There’s lot of possibilities…
