Dear Life…

a poem by Mitali Chakrabarty

Many years have passed since,
I started the journey with you,
but still could not get a clue,
where I was taken to.

I think of going beyond you,
but alas! It is never possible,
to be in these roads without you.

Sometimes you are so entertaining,
so joyful and enchanting.
But sometimes you are a boredom,
as if a ruthless, hopeless kingdom.

I know not anything about you,
but I am no one without you.
Dreams gave me the advice,
With you I should fantasize,
but realities had much to criticize.

Many years we have been together,
will I come to know
your next destination, ever?
