A Lengthy Episode. - Poem by Palas Kumar Ray

What is life but chasing dreams
Swallowing simultaneous stimulation
of hope and despair knowing
the fragility of desiring
the end of despairing?

What is life but passing days
in monotonous rhythm boring
known long before in worrying
drop by drop sipping
bitterness pouring?

    Lengthy episode, make headlines
    Short tales vanish in the air.

    Its nice you have a true exhibit here, but
    It's in the interest of the society
    One try to find twist and turn in his each serial
    Learning the art of dream and dream not.

    None can stop one from setting his own stage
    Whether viewers there or not...
    The show can be on with tapping foot steps.
    That will nourish and cherish the self soul
    A self find way... is to stand for long.
    Throwing the boredom away.

    Very thought provoking and demands one to find a new wayout.

    Thank you.

    there are rhythms in life- pain ans pleasure follow one another. yes, life appears a lenghty episode if in pensive mood. sombre mood, well expressed. (Report) Reply

    once again a different and unique piece...a bit sombre but written beautifully.
    I loved it.

    A very pensive mood well expressed. But cling to that fragile bit of hope, and never
    stop dreaming. And the poetic gift you have been given will carry your through.

    Warmest regards,
