Anirban Banerjee


Bursting from the cloud in the sky
I started my journey to earth
All the while I kept wondering
What will happen to me
Will I fall on the ground and dry up
Will I fall into a river and flow in the sea
Will I get drained away
Will I be part of the flood that take away many lives
Will I be the first dropp on a draught barren land
Will I be able to play with the children
Will I be able to carry their paper boat
I want to be happy
I want to be good
But I do not know what will happen
Until I feel into dark shell and became a pearl
But being a pearl did not make me happy
As I did not have any value
Until I became a jewel which is owned by you

Comments about Pearl by Anirban Banerjee

    While going through this.... it really feels like the poet can see what one sufers during his life.. No one ever nows where he/she will be in the near future...!
    But the message lies that whatever may happen.. we all are Pearls..! :)
