Wait For Words - Poem by Prayag Saikia

My mother said to me
Speak carefully dear
You are my dream
Your dream is still
An unborn agony
In the cacophony of the world
Lord Buddha said
Serenity is beautiful
Adore it
Fill it up
At the time of utmost necessity
With extremely controlled
Sweet words
My mother told me
Speak carefully
So that your words are not lost
In the cacophony of the world
Because you are my dream
Your dream
Is still an unborn agony.

(Translated from original Assamese by Bibekananda Choudhury)
