*Chander M. Bhat

I was very ease at home
Without any disturbance
I was thrown out of my home
Without my interference.

Not talk of men even God
Pertant to teach me a lesson
Of no faults of mine
I did bear those sufferings.

Thus came a day
I asked the God my faults
HE in turn lowered his eyes
By saying, I did make your life.

Thus came the right answer
I was stunt
God indicated, all was for you
That the situation was made
For you to move.

I moved with heavy heart
Leaving all my past memories
Thinking for my ways to survive
Reached a barren land,
Thorns all around.

Scorching sun burnt my skin
Passed the days in a long queue
To get myself registered
For maintaining my existence
Loud came a voice
Your identity is lost.

Could not bear this
Reached my abode
A one room set
In a new land
Nights became restless.

Who is here to hear me?
Passed the hard days
With only an idea
To re-establish my band
Roamed here and there
To discover meadows
And pastures new.

Found myself in a wirlpool
That took me to a deep trench
Still thinking of my past
Waxes and wanes just like a moon.
