1960

I am going with it,
Nineteen hundred sixty.

Going and going
With you, O my dear, and
The entire world is watching us.

What for I do not know,
And you are telling me
Time and again to stop.

And I am going and going,
Not to reach anywhere
But to go and go
Without any ending.

Nineteen hundred sixty
And I am going with it.

    We share the same birth year. We must always be going. There is no stop where we are going.

    A poet dies just like other ordinary persons BUT he becomes immortal WITH his poems, because poems never die, they survive all things and become immortal. Excellent Poem, I so admire. Thank you for sharing.

    I read a few poems,
    but my attention was again drawn to this one.
    As Frost said
    'I have miles to go before I sleep'.

    Dear Mishra sir, it is a great ode to your birth year 1960 having insightful depiction and nice diction. You are a soul and hence you have to take birth and death. God is a supreme soul who is above birth and death. He never comes to the cycle of birth and date. Thanks for sharing.

    My year, too! I'll admit, I'm kind of partial to it.
    And your poem is wonderful. I might've added ellipsis to the end, but I happen to like ellipsis; I fully realize they just bug most people. Well done! 10
