A decade lost wandering in the frame of intense longing,

When got sense saw all the guides from presence blew over.

Started the journey while fancied with destination,

Ambitions made light-headed along with charmed over.

Guides were not guilty who were with throughout journey,

Envied with companions which compelled flip over.

In the stance of a place of resurrection met with doomsday,

Whatever was own so called in the process spoiled over.

Savagery is the only reason so far for devastation,

Cane off badly to be pedagogue in wannabee over.
