Why? ? ? - Poem by Geetha Jayakumar
Why you gave me wings to fly
While you kept me caged ever!
Why you tempted me with dreams
While you caged all my desires.
Why you kept me in light
While you made me walk through dark tunnels!
Why you gave me boat to sail
While took away my rowing oar
Why you gave me the beauty
While you took away the mirror from me.
Why you gave me freedom
While you fenced me with wall of thorns.
Why you gave me a beautiful life
While you bounded me with many restrictions.
Why you gave me blackboard to write
While you took away the chalk to write.
Why you gave me mouth to speak
While you kept my voice dumb forever.
Why you showed me the forbidden apple
While you gave me strict warning never to have!
Why you gave me so many questions to answer
I searched here and there but I couldn't find none!
Still You whisper in my ears
Life is Beautiful dear!
If you question me too much
I will take away your life!
So keep quiet and enjoy the life!
So sing along with me...
Life is Beautiful!
Life is wonderful!
