Despair - Poem by Rajkumar Mukherjee


never ever lose faith in yourself
always believe in God’s grace
never mistrust your neighbour
be helpful to the poor and sick
so the gospel goes…

at sixty like a committed samaritan
you have followed the gospels truly
though you have been betrayed
by friends and colleagues times without number
you received backbites from only those you helped
even the God himself turned
a deaf ear to your helpless cries

you are not a Jesus to forgive them
for all their misdeeds
nor I can forgive you oh my Lord

slowly but surely you are turning me
into a molehill of despair
of which you are the creator
