When I Am... - Poem by Rajesh Thankappan
When I am dealt a bad deal in life
With my stars arrayed treacherously against me,
I wish to escape into the black holes of the Universe
From where there is no escape or a glimmer of hope
Unless the story of which we may yet be unaware
Unfolds luminously in the field of vision, on the other side, somewhere,
A vision which we presently cannot vouch for or foresee
A mystery, a wormhole like story, which enfolds me endearingly!
