The poet feels so sorry

When the poet looks around

And sees the humdrum routine life,

The roller coaster ride of variegated emotions,

The dull and dreary existence of many,

The sweeping away of beach chairs,

Boats, parasols and swimmers

In the unexpected tsunami,

He feels that this era is also very conducive

For mind shift and spiritual growth.

Sometimes, a storm is so important

For the removal of unnecessary stuff

From both the ground and the air.

Similarly, certain events, like whiplashes

Do hurt us but at the same time

They revolutionize the architecture

Of our life, our existence, our being.

Sometimes, life is like fighting

A crippling drought and at other times,

It is like walking on hot sands

Of the desert with worn-out boots

With hopes fading to see an oasis.

Also, living in the milieu of assholes,

Fighting bouts of depression

And low self-esteem is so demoralizing.

And yet, these lead not to the end

Of your world which required

Herculean efforts to make, bit by bit.

It is just the beginning of a beautiful story—

The amazing story of your life,

The endurance, the perseverance, the patience

Adding to the multi-dimension

Of your meaningful existence.

Feel happy for what you are

And forget not the trials and tribulations

That keep clasping one another

While the poet feels so sorry for

All those who have never known

The power of pains and suffering.
