A Room With A View - Poem by Hemendra Singh Deopa

In a room with a view
Near the window the man is laid
To view the whole spectrum of life.
I now realize perhaps what the man can explain better than me or you.
The view might be constraint to the rigmarole of sight.
But enlightened! the vision inside.
The man is laid in a room with a view
near the window.
Transparent as it is
Just like the fact of life and death.
And the man perhaps counting on his life as he is laid near the window
in a room with a view.
Collecting all his strength to be strong
for the remaining time to go on
with all the love and hope
to live to the best for the rest of his life.
As he must be treading through the storm all in his mind.
Far from that place but a thought
Leaves me to believe not to be scared but thoughtful about this spectrum of life.
On the way to make it better day
for today, tomorrow and the days to come.
The story of life...appreciate the time.
For, many counting their time
in similar rooms and some just under a roof.

Poet's Notes about The Poem

‪#‎I‬ happen to come across in such a place and get a glimpse of the inside of such a room from far away while traveling to go to work and its not about the imagination but the fact that some people reach at the brink of meeting their fate rather clumsy fate, some come out strong and god willing everybody does. The view is of a cancer hospital and patients lying on their beds.
This is to appreciate life and so to appreciate other's fortunate or less fortunate, as it passed through my mind so sharing.
