Transformation : Poem

Vanita Thakkar is an Entrepreneur - an Engineer-Researcher-Consultant and an Artist - Singer-Composer-Poetess-Writer from Vadodara, Gujarat.



Where can there be

A room for

Reasoning for Rights

In a den of demands ?

Suffocated Sense of Responsibility

Keeps gasping

In its choking ambience of

Gloomy ambitions,

Overgrown expectations,

Stuffy misconceptions

And wild rumours,

Nurturing misunderstandings

And generating factoids ….

The purity of Love and Truth

Prevails and flourishes

In spite of

Poisonous emissions from

Such factories of factoids,

Ready to gush in

And sanctify them

Into Caves of Contemplation,

Pathways of Realization.
