DEEPAK KUMAR PATTANAYAK


Fate is not a petty thing


Fate is not a petty thing
- - - - - - - - - - - -
Yet I swear
I can wrestle with her
Can beat if I wish
I am used to pittance
That she provides
I am used to opulence
And nothingness as well
That she brings
Between having and not having
If time passes
Without any grumbling
Till paradise
Certain I am to say
That I have humbled her to my wish……

    Fate is accident unacceptable to us. You have perhaps a mind that accepts all such accidents.. (Report) Reply
