Why To Win Respect - Poem by Gajanan Mishra

What to expect?
Dirty dust under my feet.
Am I a cheat?

I am holding your hands
I am touching your forehead
I am in front of your eyes
I am a flower in the garland You wear.

Tell me, tell me, who am I
And You are in equanimity
With new clothes every moment
Taking me upwards with and without my consent.

All these are here not for the sake of show
I realized and you called me loudly
I want to sacrifice myself for You
And You are declaring my victory at the end.

What to do with that victory
That I do not know and I am sure
I know not the beginning and the end
And in the middle I am in my life threefold.

Poet's Notes about The Poem

childhood, youth and old age and no further course.

    Mr. Gajanan
    Sorry, I just had some fun with them
    I need some good laugh, been under a lot of pressure
    Big victory last night but I paid high price with my exhaustion
    Out of due respect to you and Mr. Amathalal
    I already stop the game.
    Still want to send in poems but I will take a long break.
    Give you all a break too.
