Geetima Baruah Sarma Poems
Not For Long
Bad days do not last long, One should have patience, To overcome them all.
A Ballad on Self-realization
A tale, Of two pals, Ego possessed the former, Self-respect imbibed the latter.
(Dedicated to my mother) You smiled at me, Even though you were in pain,
O winged ones, You come in thousands From distant lands To enjoy the cool lap
I lost touch with you For so many years, But when I think of you, It seems like -
My mind was filled With too many thoughts, Thoughts of the past, Thoughts of the future,
Through an introspection, One can analyse any reaction. Situations remain the same,
We are born free, Yet find ourselves, Fastened with shackles.
A Sleepless Night
She kept awake whole night long, her eyelids refused to bow
Dreams began to wane as she faced distress and she proclaimed there were lots to express.
I like to see - The sun rising, The flowers blooming, A baby smiling,
Strolling on the sandy beach, Enjoying the cool gentle breeze, I looked at the people around. Little children built sand-castles,
Oh! Precious drops, A view crystal clear, Life without you, A complete mess,
Whoever he may be, Tom, Dick or Harry, Wretched poverty stares, Sternly at his face,
Dear Feelings, Horizon,
You inspire me to write on and on.
You've provided a platform for many poets,
To express their feelings and thoughts.
Horizon is the place for the sun to rise,
Feelings is the space for the poets to write.
My thanks to you for publishing my poems,
Every Saturday I eagerly wait to read poems.
Through this letter, I wish you 'Happy New Year',
