..Knowing "WE" and our "LIFE"!!

For the first time ever for my readers, Anupam Abhivyakti has a piece not originally written by me.  However, i am as delighted while publishing this magnificent work as i have ever been.  This contemplative & powerful manifestation of Life is composed by Late Amar Nath Sawhney and is surely among one of the best to be written in its category.  Read on and ponder over what Life actually means to you.


Ah me, are we
        A bare crate,
A rudderless boat
That ever float
In world's wide ocean
Without a notion
        Of its fate
Or destiny?


Or, is it right
        That in vain
We come and go,
Without ado
Like a little cloud
That rolls about
        After rain
When sky is bright?


Or, can it be
        That our fate
Is like a bubble
In water's trouble;
Arise and grow
And simply go,
        In quick haste
To eternity?


Or, is it we
        Come and go
Without an end
To mar or mend
The vast design
And leave behind
        Signs to show
Of what we be?

  2. Awesome piece of composition!!
    One of the best poems, I have ever come across.
    Life!! this reminds me a couplet from a famous ghazal: Duniya jise kehte hain jadoo ka khilona hai... Mil jaae to mitti hai kho jaae to sona hai!!!
    How we get engaged in our daily LIFE's activities that we forget to contemplate on the very purpose of LIFE. And moreover only a few, like the POET, are capable of discerning the purpose of LIFE.
