With its beautifulness and greatness

My mother bore the hardship of Pregnancy and tirelessness;

This world, the village of darkness, evil hoppers and choppers,

You made it mum and now I am here in this world;

World of people who live on weariness and hope


In the world of hope; my parents

Brain minded me to the use of pens,

White writing became my immediate assets and belong,

Young and humble man parenting writing materials;

Clearing chalk dust from my empty looking face


In the world of hope; my consciousness;

Accepted all ups and downs journey of life,

By taking time in studying papers, hearing speech;

And visually exploring the world,

Mum; I was not idle among my age mates,

And to you dad; I was a fireworm among my colleagues


In the world of hope; my foot tumbled, on the black stones of death

In this world of hope, I am able to wade

Through high valleys and mountains of flowing waters

And Through my aspiration I am able to step into;

The Muddy River and cross it to get the burning wires of the fortunate.


In the world of hope; I have to be a soldier;

A culture of my generation,

Making me a dualistic gentleman with;

Titles of comrade and academia,

A man in the struggling circle and revolution of his generation

In the world of hope, folks assume future to be the target

Without knowing Peace is costless and Hardship is a blame.
