Photograph! - Poem by Nanthinii Mohan
Did you take your name after – paradox?
You let us smile, and you let us cry.
Sometimes you still smile;
But rarely do I see u in tears.
Isn’t this unfair?
May be, that’s why people regard you as memories—
For some being the most cherished;
And for others, a mere passing cloud.
But there are times you still remind us –
The lush history, we totally forgot.
In that case, are you a magical mirror then?
To show me, the dreams of my past;
And the painful remains of the present.
You should be my friend, I guess;
Because, no one else – except you,
Knew what I had in my heart.
Are you what people call – a time machine?
Since you let us go to the past.
But you also forbid us to hook in there.
No more dilemmas! Because –
We only exhaust to find out who you are;
We’ll never find and you will never rest.
You must be the byword of hope.
For you never tire to save our present for future.
