A LOOK AT LIFE-57
BY-SMRUTI RANJAN MOHANTY  

you don't need to tell me
i know who i am
a nonentity struggling for an identity in the vast multitude of humanity
living in a world where success 
so difficult to come by
i often ask me a question
if i succeed, will it make me a man?

what to do with success 
if that will take me away from my small world
from the things i love, the people i love to be with
what to do with recognition and appreciation if that will make me someone else, alien to myself

what to do with all my affluence if my conscience deserts me, my feelings, emotions and gestures never remain mine
when nobody with me to share my accomplishment and agony 

what to do with that glittering world
where my own do not have places to live in
where my childhood friend can't  hug me
men and women of my village cannot identify with me, my riches and success
and look at me as if i am not their own
someone who has come from another heaven 

of what use that success?
if it snatches away that innocent smile from my face
of what use that pelf and power 
that makes me a virtual beggar
begging for an ounce of love and tear
in a noman's land

i am happy as i am
with my modest possessions i am the king of my world, do not need anything more
that will take me away from my heart and soul
let me remain as i am, an unknown man
with petty dreams and tiny pleasures 
i don't want to part with my simplicity
my innocent mind and conscience 
and live in a pseudo world of treachery and hypocrisy where castles are built in air
love and relationships crucified to satisfy one's hunger, greed and fancy

there was no fanfare when i was born
my death will be uneventful 
let me live and remain the way i am
with all that i value and love
in the midst of love and tears
genuine feelings and emotions 
and die a peaceful death in open air and broad daylight, in presence of near and dear
do i need anything more?
