A guiding light

- Salim Maharjan, Kathmandu

May 30, 2018-

Amid the clouds of chaos that surrounded us

A thunderstorm of ignorance raged so loud.

We were lost in a whirlwind with no one to trust

When you arrived so swiftly, like an angel for us.

Your words resonate like a symphony,

They rouse us from our slumber

They made our darkest hours bright

Because your wisdom gleams and that light,

Keeps our souls awake, guiding us in our nightmares

And through our darkest days.

Amid the darkness and obscurity, you helped us shine,

Amid the trenches and obstacles, you helped us flow.

In the mist of ignorance, we found your trust,

And that really helped us.

That beautiful journey went

by so swift,

Still holding on to your teachings, we set adrift

Into an unknown world where I hope we will meet again,

And I will tell you then, your words and your trust were not in vain.


Maharjan is an undergraduate at Kathmandu University
