My Burden
by Kumud Biswas
Bookmark and Share
  The load you gave me
You made it so easy to carry
But whatever I myself gathered
Has become a real burden to me.
Remove, my friend, remove it from my head
In the momentum of this burden
I don't know where I am bound
Please help me break this journey.
The pain I cause to my own self
Burns me like a flame
It reduces me to ashes and leaves me barren
The pain you give me is a kind gift
Like flood waters of rains
It enriches my being.
I have collected whatever I got
Whoever sees me calls me to account
None of them is ready to forgive.
Remove, my friend, remove it from my head
I am blindly running under this burden
Please help me break this journey.


Transcreation of the devotional song - Tumi jato bhar diyechho - by Rabindranath Tagore. Best recording of this song is by Dwijen Mukherji. The original with its swaralipi or notation is at http://www.rabindra-rachanabali.nltr.org/node/3892
