The Wise

The Wise

A Poem by sayandeep kundu

Finally I got trapped

For the good

to get better

and  the bad

to get better.

I was the traitor


But now the wheel

keeps rotating

And I sing

But only



Once the onus fell upon me

to change the fools

within me.

I gleefully looked outside

To see those parasites

Creeping over my logic-bricks

And emotional castles

Castles.. that disappeared

Into unforeseen oblivion-

Like a cold apparition.

And my freedom greeted me

Like my mother.

O brother!

I am but your other self.

I was in a prison once

Only to let my vision

Immerse into the lightning

of your estranged darkness.



Sands of my time pass away like this

I keep mourning my brother's demise.



I am but free today-

To embrace the joy of life.

Life that echoes the cheers of many,

Life that purges the fears of many,

Life that wipes the tears of my wife,

Life that surges from the edge of a knife.

I will rise forever from the ashes of tomorrow

I will win this battle and rip off my sorrow

There are stories to tell and memories to follow

To chronicle the gems 

Of midnight dreams...


Dreams are but the lores of my granny

Screams but the gore of tyranny

Blood that shed in the years of death

They sheared from this plane and helped me breath.

Some crazy morons..Let them piss in their pant

I am but free today

In my native land.


Sands of my time pass away like this

I keep mourning my brother's demise.


Let him not come again and fiddle with me 

I was so poor till I wanted to flee.

I am with me after so many years,

I have but killed trillions of jeers.


Peace .... peace...with peace, I last

 I last forever, till I trust

The likes of you,

O brother.


In the holy bosom of yours

O mother-

I want to die

So don't cry...



Sands of my time pass away like this

I keep mourning my brother's demise.....
