1960 - Poem by Gajanan Mishra

I am going with it,
Nineteen hundred sixty.

Going and going
With you, O my dear, and
The entire world is watching us.

What for I do not know
And you are telling me
Time and again to stop.

And I am going and going
Not to reach anywhere
But to go and go
Without any ending.

Nineteen hundred sixty
And I am going with it.

    My year, too! I'll admit, I'm kind of partial to it.
    And your poem is wonderful. I might've added ellipsis to the end, but I happen to like ellipsis; I fully realize they just bug most people. Well done! 10 (Report) Reply

    I like this, and along with 1960 being the year of your birth, this poem has wee tinge of psychedelic smack to it which also makes the title so very apropos....Good Work ~FjR~ (Report) Reply

    A nice poem for the year of birth and the idea that poets have no birth and no death is a great idea. (Report) Reply

    One has to perform his duties in life non-stop. May be the people (or perhaps you yourself) are not aware of your final station but each one of us has to carry out the allotted job as per the destiny. Nice poem. (Report) Reply
