I have not come alone
I have come with millions
With wagons of emotions as well
Born to thrive under the warmth of
A mother’s breasts
To rock the world with my smile and cry
I was not alone when born.
I admit I have come naked
But I’m a brand ambassador of equality,
My nakedness reaps kisses, no hisses of a slum
I’m as open as light and air
To dangle like flowers round the stems of human arms
To roll like a transparent brook.
I grow with company,
Live with tens and thousands
Cherish a dream of my own
To fill this world of woe and weal
With love and labour
Finally to go like millions
on shoulders of my friends, neighbours and relatives
In a chariot of flowers, incense and new clothes
I came alone and will go all alone.
