No beginning, no end

 

My love does not have a beginning

Nor does it have an end.

I was born in this world

With a diamond armour of love, which was different.

 

I did not come here with a name,

Three or four aliases is what I brought

To this world.

 

I have romanced with fire,

Scarred as I was from light.

Assimilated in the whirlpool of darkness

I learned to recognise people.

 

I have earned praises aplenty,

Contempt as well in many eyes

Yet, I have loved love.

For I am fearless.

My love has no beginning, no end.

 

(Today is the birth anniversary of Sunil Gangopadhyay. Although, I never concurred with his political views, I was an admirer of his poems and his other literary works.

To mark the poet’s birthday, I have loosely translated one of his poems “Janmo hoy na, mrtiyu hoyna“. Hope you liked it).

Freedom

Now we are free

The sky waits for us

No cage to hold us back

The wings soar high

A bullet flies past

A drop of blood

The pull of gravity

weighs more than the spirit

Back to the cage

the skies mock me

The trees urge me to break free

I try….. but fail.

Then one night,

Hope comes to me

I fly into your arms

I am finally free
