Suman Kumar Das


Between Past & Future


A series of evolution
I have been through
Since my inception.
Moreover, red revolution
Has flooded again and again
Over my chest.
All those foot-prints
Are now in the pages of history.

Many a new lives
Wombs are yet to conceive,
To reveal unknown mystery
To repeat past in future.
Endless hope and desire
From uncertain fate.

Between these two;
Past and Future
I am Present
An eternal reality,
Still stay static
As a silent witness
Of all joy and sorrow
Of all fame and disgrace
Of all victory and defeat.
