As If We Must Prove


Almost once upon a time
I would be a little boy
in a large family.

Every large family the then time
would have large number of people
parents, brothers, sisters, uncles, aunts and cousins.

Brothers, sisters and cousins
we ourselves would be our friends
guide and philosophers.

We would stay together, sing together, eat together.
We would also fight together and play together.
We would grow together.

Then there came the wind.
The selfish wind of making small families.
The wind shattered large families everywhere.

The wind became a storm and till now it blows for decades.
No one can say when it will stop or at all it will.
We are still trying to prove division is very advantageous.

poet Sir Walter Raleigh

EVEN such is Time, that takes in trust

And pays us but with earth and dust;
