A Second Life! - Poem by Ramesh T A

I am living a second life now!
An ancient disease Psoriasis
Affected me 13 years ago!

I have got redemption now only
From this skin problem harmless,
They say, but it is painful always
With cracks on foot and scales
On head and all over the body
Pealing like dry leaves and falling
Like white power from dry skin!

In Ramayana Rama spends
14 years in the forest at the
Prime time of his life to fulfil
his father's vow and achieves
Laurels afterwards in court life!

In Mahabharata Pandavas spend
13 years in the forest to fulfil
Punishment after losing a game
And they win war and rule nation!

Will that story repeat in my life?
Disease came when unexpected and
Disease has gone when unexpected!
It is fate that rules our life ever
And we go on God's path for relief!
