gajanan mishra (3rd April 19sixty / Tikapali, Patnagarh, Balangir, Odisha, India now at Tapobana, Titilagarh, Odisha, India)
What is my need
I am here to know first.
And I know
I am in need of You only
You my truth
You my love
You my cosmos.
O my dear, I know
Like you I am not bounded
By any geographical limits.
My aim is towards
Oneness of the entire human society
The entire energy of living beings
My aim is to establish
The ideal of a common cause.
And for this I am writing poetry
I know poetry is the spark-full
Sparkling light in the darkness
And I know poetry is here with me
To say how humanity can become
One in peace friendship and prosperity
With a common cause.
I am in need of that true poetry.
