The Endurance

The Endurance


Sometime things rejoice me
Like a soft touch of tender buds
A few sounds pulsate me
Like bells ringing in temples
The breeze blows affectionately
A company of someone
goes on rejoicing
Like fragrance of the wet soil
Someone dwells deep within
And compels to come closer
I look at me with keen eyes
And get thrilled by the moments
go by
To find everything affable
Which goes on enriching
the existence
How I wish it went on and on
Life staying intact and happy
But how rapid it alters
in an instant, the next moment,
this day, or that day
The mind turns reticent
Words prick the heart
and torment the mind
Enveloping the affectionate
blue sky
clouds of aversion surround me
And the lightening of anguish
Keeps striking hard
My creator !
You beguile like a cascade
Yet sometime you throw
into the flow of grief
You make stand like a cedar
And you push storms
and shake me as a plant
The mud you kneaded
and kept on the potter wheel
with your skilled hands
You might have heated
the pot perfect
Why then it scares me if I fall down
I would break into pieces
Yet sometime I face jolts
and stand firm
laughing away all along
I know that spring' ll shine
I watch old leaves dance
in the autumn
And think of the amorous Semal
I know that if I endured
the scorching summer
the spring 'll embrace me
and the rains 'll drench me
