Treasure Island

Vishal Sharma

(10th july 1996/Samastipur (Bihar) / India)

**Autobiography**


life takes many forms
many shapes and sizes
choose the one fits you the best
make this judgement not in haste
whether in slums
or in palace
whether in BMW
or in auto
whether your clothes are branded
or not
matters a trifle.

if you born poor
not your mistake
if you die poor,
certainly
your mistake.

life has twists and turns
nothing back returns
thus prison your precious life
in an autobiography.

'Twixt every page my thoughts go stray at large
Down in the meadow, where is richer feed,
And will not mind to hit their proper targe.
