A Shared Fate Poem by Ruta Mohapatra

A Shared Fate

Rating: 5.0


Things go wrong
Often enough
In this not so perfect world
While we are trying to make it
A perfect day
A perfect life
A perfect dream

Each time things go wrong
With us or with others
It leaves its impact
Whether we admit it or not
Our heart skips a beat
Our steps falter
Sleep deserts us

How can we remain unaffected
When a chain binds us?
An invisible chain
That pulls and tugs
As things happen to us
Others' pain reflected in our eyes
Our pain reflected in others
