The Devotee

Ready to bout
Like a scout
Just about
Camping in a spot

The devotee
Vulnerable
But also able
Easy come worshipper
A fanatic and a follower
A fighter and a crusader
A believer and a philosopher
A marginal walker
A notorious loner
An enthused caring
Always daring
For ideals
He cherishes

Ready to bout
Like a scout
Just about
Camping in a spot

The devotee
Keen on subjectivity
Away from reality
Risking his vitality
In a sea of dreams, he swims
In the expanse of space, he glides
Pondering over possibilities
Observing and hypothesizing
Postulating and theorizing
Crafting ways
Drawing patterns
Delineating limits
Of things and events
With endless attempts
To reveal the secrets
of the mystery of subjects
He strives,
to understand always.

Ready to bout
Like a scout
Just about
Camping in a spot

The devotee
Doesn't easily blend
But, a reliable friend
Tight lipped
Very committed
Sincere and devoted
Straight and candid
Up-tightly solid
As he habitually is
trustworthy indeed

Ready to bout
Like a scout
Just about
Camping in a spot

The devotee
Always on a flee
On a ritualistic sway
Carried away
with ideas flying
almost sky reaching
high and higher he goes
far away in the space
to realms of boundless
the imagination takes
he travels and travels.

Ready to bout
Like a scout
Just about
Camping in a spot

The devotee
Follows his shadows
Pursuing his own goals
Actualizing his ambitions
Of ideas he cherishes.
