Treasure Island

Somanathan Iyer


I am the Time!


Welcome again to this world!
Oh! Soul! relax a while
I am the Time! I am the destiny
Never you, except me aware of
the number of trips you made
to this world earlier
seldom you remember
the nature of births you underwent
Every fresh trip of yours
marked with a confirmed return ticket
not known to you is the manner
unknown to you is the timing
relations you have
spreading across the countries
not confined only to humans
also among other species too
exists always there a riddle
you could recognize never any
seized by illusion you rot in captivity
wisdom you forego in finding the salvation
