I was with Sam In the zoo Playing with God’s plenty, Unmindful of tomorrow. The peacock heeded not my request For a sacred feather To adore the radiant smile Of my Father!
I’m on the unending road With a heart That neither cries nor breaks But bleeds In the crashes and amidst crashes And all hurling shouts - Away! Out of the way! I make desperate bids To be on the safe clear road But who allows?
I sit aside and wait To see the working of the fate - Elusive peace, jubilant wars, Dumb prayers, agonizing poverty, Shrouded in denials, disgraces And degradation.
The same coat covers My red silk shirt underneath To accost and befriend The glowing smile!
