Hope - The Culprit! - Poem by Akbar Ali Khan
I tried to let it go but...it revisited!
I tried to move on but...it followed!
The culprit is - Hope!
hope lured it back...
hope showed it the track...
hope accommodated it on the top rack...
hope let it seep in through the crack...
hope has this uncanny knack...
hope...doing all the damage behind my back! !
Now running the invincible race...
...to save the grace! !
Let's see what's still there to face!
Poet's Notes about The Poem
'There are many things we want from life,
there are many things we want in life,
but its not always possible to have it all.
The grace is in letting go and move on.'
I just replied!
