I set in pain

And rise in happiness

I am the human sun

Do not be blown off

Like the leaf

Wounded by the wind

I know

Your thoughts were birds

Chasing one another

In the garden once

Now you are a broken rainbow


You hoped

That flowers would bloom

In the dust bins

Oceans are going dry

What after all is a tear

Life is a fish

Running in the flowing stream

Of time

Cannot be captured

In the nets of tears

Cannot be hooked

By the rods of dreams

I set in pain

And rise in happiness

I am the human sun -

- Seshendra Sharma
