Best Poem of Ananta Madhavan

'Did I Ever Exist? '

I am not sure I ever lived, except in this imagined space,
This concoction of words that perhaps make a little sense
To a kindly heart like yours.

If I was never born,
I never died. Was I immortal
Without ever being me, a person with a body, mind and soul,
Like you, but different, a unique variant?

I am no freak, no fiction, once I was a fact,
If Time can be trusted, solar or cosmic.
My tale is sad and simple. Mother's womb
Was all the world I ever knew
Before I grew to be a person,
Rather than a form of words, your words, this ...

Read the full of 'Did I Ever Exist? '

A Cynic Turns Away

Speak true, they said
and sniggered when I took them at their word.

Play fair, they said,
Winking as they cheated me and others.

You will learn the rules as you go on;
If you win, you're one of us.
If you lose, we disown you.
