Rajkumar Mukherjee

Heathen

HEATHEN

the footprints of Goddess Lakshmi
are hanging before you
like the shadows ahead of light
like the ideas ahead of words

since childhood I have earned kudos
for being a 'good boy' too

yet this age this time
appears to me to be without
the blessings of the Goddess

    yeh
    Lakshmi is naughty
    she runs where the rich are
    and never to the poor
    specially standing lakshmi
    therefore I llike the padam one
    cos shes more stable
    wowwwwwwwwwww
    lovely write dear Raj
    A++++and 10+++

    universal in tone...ups and downs are a part of life but also the higher spirit is a part of life..all we need to do is seek within

    there comes a stage in every life when one feels abandoned even by gods....but it's only a passing phase!

    i like the way this sounds but i'm not so sure i understand......i enjoy the way you write and the way you use words its like a river in motion so fluid and smoothe

    The success brings servitude because people always expect you to succeed..........
    Success is indeed golden fetter........
    Good Write......
