I don’t want be celebrated as lovelorn soul
It is crippling me to own you whole
My obsession for you was my goal
The rejection of me has taken a toll.
My emotional vacuum has to be filled
Wounds you have given me has to be healed
The unrequited love needs to be sealed
I will leave a space for someone else to step in.
My grief shall subside in due course of time
I shall find an outlet to vent my frustration
Feelings of pain shall disappear in rhyme
I am not to be blamed in any situation.
Let’s respect our feelings and emotions
Let’s not be victim of circumstances
If love is missing in any relationship
There is no need of any forbearance.
It has been a severe blow to my self-esteem
I fell into the trap of self-loathing suppression
I have given up the chase your love to redeem
I have self-confidence in self-compassion.
[From my book -‘Canvas of the Soul’, on amazon & kindle]
“Bangabandhu” Sheikh Mujibar Rahman
Bangladesh’s tallest leader superman,
His birth anniversary is a spectacular day
Celebrated as the National Children’s Day.
A National holiday for all to remember,
Father of this beautiful nation in splendour,
Architect of independent Bangladesh,
Freedom after sacrifice of lives to regale.
‘Joy Bangla ‘ was made by his last breath,
His bloodshed to eliminate injustice outspread,
His greatest strength was love for his people,
He sacrificed his life as his blood rippled.
He was assassinated by the war-mongers,
As he swore to end exploitation of traitors,
With invincible spirit, he stood against oppression,
Joining hands with farmers and labourers in succession.
The friend of all the poor and suppressed,
Bangladesh is proud to be equally addressed,
His patriotism is a legacy for generations of progeny,
On his hundredth anniversary, we know he stands for victory.
