Why must we change our paradigms?
The one we love today, being scorned
why must we hate the same one tomorrow
or become too indifferent?

If I had said, I did not know
what awaited me, it would have been
half a lie at least, for I did
have an idea of the darkness ahead
but I gambled, as I always have with life,
with a blind hand but lost it to my Fate!

I have lost but I have not given up,
rather found a better place to gamble in,
where none is dearer than the other one
but each as dear as I am to myself!

        1. may the world see it glorified with colors by your hand! I hope to do so after waking up from my diurnal sleep… it is 4:30 AM here 😀 tried being a lark for a while but back to being the owl again. best of luck, though with the gifts from the muses you would hardly need any!

  1. Love is worth the gamble, even if we know the odds are against, it is still worth betting on, every time. You capture this perfectly, Amit.

              1. Amit, it seems we have a mutual respect here which is simply fantastic. I love blogworld and the people I have met here have become welcome comrades along this writing pathway. You are certainly on this list! Cheers, my poetic friend!
