Pankaj Kumar (13th Oct 1989 / Bokaro, India)
I am a human
Talked in a literary group
people said, at this age all have left mindset
I felt, and I was a leftist
shared some romantic couplets among friends
they said you are in love
I concurred, and I was in love
shouted slogans in a protest
they said its rebel
I blazed, and I was a rebellion
talked about importance of religion
they said its conservative
I thought over, and I was a conservative
walked in a garden, gave some words to the beauty of nature
they said you are a poet
I blushed, and I was a poet
sitting alone, contemplating who I really am?
somewhere inside, humanity is carving to hear
and I cried, I am a human.
