A Question - Poem by Ipshita Chakraborty

I will pledge my life away from me
But tell me something first
Where does the sea go to calm itself?
What does water drink when it suffers thirst?

I promise I will try and look beyond
All my life's mundane desires and quests
But tell me after a long, hard day
In whose shade does a tree rest?

I will learn to be an honourable man
Whose praise the highest thoughts adorn
But like water escapes from the smallest fissure
From time to time, I feel tired and worn

So where does fire go when it seeks warmth?
And the sun, when the sky is grey?
Where does a messiah find a friend?
Tell me, to whom does God pray?
