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

    Definitely fate is not a petty thing since you have nothing to do with this. The way you'll be bestowed you have to agree with this. (Report) Reply

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.
