Once it rains.... : To the ever elusive Monsoons

Get into my mind, can you ??
Search my soul, will you ??
Have been searching it for a long long time,
The right path gave me an unwanted shunt,
Can you help me in my treasure hunt??

Can you read my thoughts?
They usually get wary and I get lost.
Hah!!! What an oxymoron I spell aloud,
When I say - "Nah !!!! I am used to walking alone in the crowd."

What has happened to me,
I am not whom I used to be,
I have changed before, have changed for the good,
This time I am resisting change hard, the hardeset I could.

Coz I think I am becoming like you,
"A-chord", it strikes,
It was difficult to find my mirror-self,
Harder still is to resist the change now in myself!!

To save few, one has to sacrifice one-self,
Nothing's left with me, somebody please help !!!!
Gave everything, an empty soul,
Waiting for the monsoons to fill the hole,
To imbibe life once again,

It will change -
"Once it rains,
Once it rains,
Once it rains

Waiting for the monsoons....

Just how monsoons ought to be waited for..they sure, must be smiling:)
