(Dedicated to universal consciousness – Deepak Sarkar, www.kolki.com)
Every time I had pain
I used to suffer!
Whether it’s from losing a game
Or unexpected score in final exam
Or separating from a loved one
Or someone suffering from social unjust
Or people’s karmic life shortened my military might!
Heart always ached choking voice losing breath!
Made me wonder through empty streets at night
Looking at the sky may be emptiness knows why
Dearest dreams become dear making us cry
Nearest soul evades bondage on the fly
Some people undermine others with hatred and lies!
Life went on; eyes became dry, heart normal
Some innocence lost others emboldened
Bad news made me sad but not heart broken
Mind knows the limit beyond which we are helpless
Pains are nothing but tools for surviving experience!
