A Poem... By Ramesh Rai!

Life cannot be scribed into words
Or else I would shift the whole of it
By my pen on the paper
Then I would sign it, and say
Take it
This is my life!

Life cannot be embellished by cosmetics
Or else I would décor my life
By carrying it to some parlor, and say
How beautiful life is!
Life is a feeling
which breathes every moment
And aches with desire to live!

Life is ready to face
When problems come
Or else what is that life
In which there’s nothing to do?
Life is to live
Life is to die
Someone lives after death
Someone dies while living
Die only those
For whom life is a burden
The purpose of life is not fulfilled
Only by ascending gallows
It is fulfilled if one gives something substantial to the world
While dying! ! !

    Not sure if this is your poem or by Ramesh Rai, but anyhow I like the way it is phrased and the intensity of it!

  • Valsa George (7/10/2013 6:53:00 AM)

    Shahzia, you seem to be very good at translation! I won; t understand the original version, but this looks a perfect piece!
    Life is a feeling
    which breathes every moment
    And aches with desire to live!
    Beautiful lines! !
