Treasure Island

Diptesh Augustine Sarkar


Doors


I see some doors open
before me, some behind
near and far
as if I were in a game
in a virtual world.



But there are a lot many
that are closing
behind me without a loss
but with great dignity
as if chances and choices were fewer.



This is a quandary
this transition of pain and regret
nauseating, percolating in through the bones;
but tomorrow, when I'm beyond,
pain, loss and regret would take
new meaning.

poet Sir Walter Raleigh

EVEN such is Time, that takes in trust
Our youth, our joys, our all we have,
And pays us but with earth and dust;
