Chocolates – by Divya Rajgarhia

Scroll down to content

Chocolates melt in our mouth and suffuse us with joy

Joy that sometimes takes our mind on a detour from the mundane

Mundane chores that cloister our mechanical lives

Lives lived for earning money and security

Security, which eludes us and becomes a shadowy bliss

Bliss sought after in the cacophony of loud parties

Parties, which give us an illusion of camaraderie and friendship

Friendship forged to fulfill specific needs

Needs keep us striving to perfect ourselves through our journey

Journey, which never ceases until our last breath

Breath is what defines our life and our existence.
