Poetry 2017 Longlist, Himadri Shekhar

Journey
Himadri Shekhar

Life has given more pain than happiness,
Now things hurt more during consciousness.

There’s a smile on my face but pain underneath,
Just like a pot full of ice and fire beneath.

Sometimes I sit alone and think,
Why do words hurt more than a sting?

I’ve lost hope of things getting back to normal,
Coz people are hypocrites who are fake and formal.

People look so content to see tears of pain in other’s eyes,
Just as a Lizard eats the butterfly as it cries.

I have no regrets of my Sad Past,
Coz life moves on and moves very Fast.

Now I don’t expect that someone will ever please me,
With a smile on their face and holding a Water Lily.
