Unanswered Poem by Nidhi Rajesh Kumari

Unanswered



Standing alone by this well,
I make a small wish,
If someone lives among those clouds,
Tell me, Was it all to end like this?

I swear all my happiness,
To which I am credited in this birth,
If I ever intended to do wrong,
Or ever demanded something, too much of worth.

I question you, O Lord,
What sin did I do?
For which, I am deprived of care,
Or even a look of sympathy, that is true?

I always did the right,
And see, to what, it has led,
They named me a cheater,
I am a coward, they said.

Answer me, if you will to,
What am I expected to think?
When the hard-earned respect for me,
Has vanished in a blink!

I want tonight to be,
And end to my worthless being,
But I wish my next birth,
Is far away from injustice's reign.

As I keep my feet on,
This well's earthen boundary,
I still wait for answers,
From you, O Lord, the almighty.

Now, taking my last few breaths,
I pray that all who,
Distrusted me, shall dwell,
In peace, which I never attained.
(And saying this, he jumped into the well!)

God, I left my earthly body,
But I am not ready to enter a new,
Answer me, now at least,
When I have come back to you!
