Life

Life

I’m from the slum, mouka, and water bed
I have eaten rice but loves garlic and vinegar
I’m a pole, a pillar and a thriller,
I stand in between life and its struggles
I tried separating combats upon fields of nought
I’m a hole, a sole of many souls.
I’m the tune innumerable ears dances to.
I’m the book, the forger and the writer,
I have written you, you, yes you!
I’m the stricken billiards on the billboard
I’m the fight, the fighter and the peacemaker ‘
I’m what people calls journey, but I’m people,
I’m their foot likewise their plight,
The only solution to their wavering peace
Yes, I’m life.
