Best Poem of Tapera Makadho

A Life To Remember

I remember the old days
When hunger cleaved clean
The entrails within,
Summer could pass without counting
Raindrops but tears on my unscathed face
Though unwilling, I became a man inside.

I learnt how to plough, yoke oxen at seven
A boy became a truculent man, grumpy and uneven.
Throughout the cruel days of cries and whispers
I don't remember dropping a molecule of whimpers
I was taught to be deaf and dumb to pain
Now defiant, sympathy is just a word in vain.

Harsh were the days I journeyed
Neither a sleep nor mirth have I enjoyed. ...

Death

He so sure slept
At dawn of his eternal rest.
Father robbed of a virile vein,
Mother's bowels cramp with pain.
Who would dare not cry?
Even witches' tongues went dry.
So green was he when death
Took him to the womb of earth.
