hasmukh amathalal

(17/05/1947 / Vadali, Dist: - sabarkantha, Gujarat, India)

Only One


Nothing upsets me more than simple fact
I am guided by foolish act
“It is me alone” that rules mind
I shall hear no words of other kind

I have strong guilt
That is well and strongly in built
I have gained foothold
Now I know it well so act bold

I am not afraid of shadow
As I know it may appear tomorrow
Till I try to deny the fact
I need not fear and react

I have found shade
With well managed trade
I enjoy its fruits
And smilingly greet

You are welcome
Stay as much as you like, handsome
But beware, I have my own terms
That must cause you worry and concern

You can hunt the ground well
Wait for experience to tell
I shall try to address none
As it is me and only one

That—"Heaven" is—to Me!
