Uncertain –A Certain


O my pearl! Why ye keepeth the dew?
Through you I see the beautiful world
How can I see? It is totally blurred

My thought! Fetch some lovely dream to face
That must kindle a spark within my darkness,
My torn dream that must sew!

Stars and Heaven with bright dark canopy!
Laugh not on me, it’s a childish mirth
I know, it is known to me since my birth.

And moon! Like a highwayman, you mislead
Stop mesmerizing me, not a warn but a plead
Don’t make Love a word of deceit, a Sham


Spark of sun alone will kill you all
My fate! You must remove the curtain,
Wanted to make uncertain –a certain
