For people’s peace and bliss in life,
A wise man in the West gave a dictum
“Let bygones be bygones”
Treating it as mere follies of youth.
The phrase by its genuine implication
Essentially advises everyone to forget
Most of the eventful and sordid past
For a cheerful life in what is present.
But is this really true and practical?
The past, present and future
Are different kaalkhand* of time
Hence, cause and effect are inseparable
And together dictate eternal way of life.
