Despair

Ami keboli swapana, korechi bapana batashe
Tai akashakusuma karinu chayana hatashe

 
Only dreams I sowed in the air
Yielding castles in the air to my despair.
Disappears my world shadowy,
Boat of hope never ashore will be.
My conjectures pleasant
Only float in the sky errant.
All my longing
Could trap nothing;
None did render
To my dedication for the far.
So, I played with fire
Alone, to shape my desire;
As the day is now over,
I’m left with ashes of despair.

Note:
The song seems to be more than an outlet of the Poet’s despair on his futile mundane objectives, which comes to everybody’s life to some  degree. To me, it also appears to cover his failure to perceive the ultimate truth which was his lifelong quest as a loner and I interpret thus the words ‘dedication for the far’.
