Remnants Of A Dream Now Lost - Poem by Sakib Choudhury

Just as sudden as it appeared to me
It was even faster at escaping my mind
Now it eludes me at every turn
No matter how hard I search
the furthest places of the mind

Looking for anything that can trigger
Even the most minuscule spark of memory
Just to reclaim some of what was lost
As it would not just inscribe my name in history
But the ancestral name of my family
Which I inherit by the right of birth
By my father as he his

Even the great bards of the time now lost
Would be burning inside with jealousy
For even they could not be able to
manipulate the feelings of the masses
The way I may have done

I beg and plead with my subconscious
To show my conscious mind this masterpiece
So that the world may know of the greatness
That words have in our lives

Though it eludes me at this time
Rest assured that till my last breath
Upon this world we live
Never will I stop to reclaim the
Remnants of a dream now lost
