'I Am A Sage By Profession! ' Poem by Debasish Parashar

'I Am A Sage By Profession! '

Rating: 5.0


I'm a sage by profession
I'm a sage
I mean, by profession
I'm the essence
And I' m the element
I'm order
I'm faith
I'm the world of supernatural
Unsatisfied with the one I live
Looking forward to the next
I'm Columbus
I'm Odysseus
What to chose and what not to!
A voyage or a sunburn?
A Pathankot or a Lahore?
A beta house or a Guantanamo bay?
I won't say
It is a naughty American daydream
I love it so much!
I'm insane
Insane or transcendental?
You ask me
'Where are you going
To the churchyard or to the graveyard?
Is there a backdoor? '
I reply,
'The world is parabolic
Go on, play with hyperboles
You need a point of reference
No need to worry
I'm just standing here.'

'Where are you going To the churchyard or to the graveyard? Is there a backdoor? ' imagining that there is a way for you alone...... living like a sage and asking thousands of questions to yourself...... very nice poem. it is thought provoking and interesting to read. thank you. tony
