yOU




yOU
would not be born
because of a desire
that your parents had?

yOU
would not be born
because there was
. . . . . . . a slim chance
perhaps a mischance
that your mother
would be barren,
your father
impotent.....
and your life
a complete
and absolute
wilderness !

Did you come visiting
planet earth ?

Or was it
That you were a
continuation of mother natures
procreation . . . . . .
procreated to extinction
fossilized into time !

yOU were born perhaps
due to a chance,
mischance of what you call
LIFE!

And mean this as only YOURS
yOU were born
perchance
a willful submission
called
Love . . . . . .
and in this loveless world
yOU roam
saying so very much
yet meaning so very little
your tryst with destiny
is as blasphemous
as your so called
Existence

But some fool
had uttered
an unholy,
yet so holy utterance
. . . . . . BUT LIFE MUST GO ON MY SON. . . . . .

So why . . . pray why,
must you complain . . . . . .
when you know
that at the end
of this long or short sojourn
there will only be
perhaps one more
uncared
unmeaning
unrepentant
unread
laughed at
loathed
epitaph
saying simply

yOU

DID NOT COME
VISITING PLANET EARTH
yOU CAME,
BECAUSE MOTHER EARTH
DESIRED HER INCOMPLETENESS
WITHOUT yOU !

Well!Poetry is just not poetry;its piece of art.While i was reading it i could feel the changing of rhythm from a question to agitation.You did nt follow the rules of metre and ......... thanks. thanks for not restraining it. poetry should be free like Art.And ART is formless.
