DEEPAK KUMAR PATTANAYAK


Fate is not a petty thing


Fate is not a petty thing
- - - - - - - - - - - -
Yet I swear
I can wrestle with her
Can beat if I wish
I am used to pittance
That she provides
I am used to opulence
And nothingness as well
That she brings
Between having and not having
If time passes
Without any grumbling
Till paradise
Certain I am to say
That I have humbled her to my wish……

    Fate is accident unacceptable to us. You have perhaps a mind that accepts all such accidents.. (Report) Reply

    Definitely fate is not a petty thing since you have nothing to do with this. The way you'll be bestowed you have to agree with this. (Report) Reply

Was not spoken of the hen.

Art is long and Time is fleeting,
