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.

Of this worlds theatre in which we stay,
My love like the spectator ydly sits
Beholding me that all the pageants play,
Disguysing diversly my troubled wits.
