‘PRINCE OF CONTRADICTIONS’: Poem by Parvathy Ramachandran

Some do mesmerize us-
In each great show they make.
Some do scare us-
With the World they open before us.
Some do carry us-
The way they are exact.
With no false prejudice!

Some do motivate us,
Without themselves knowing they are.
And keeps us too flourishing!
Some do open a volume-
that’s grey, white and black.

And eventually letting us,
To carve the better ‘we’.
Some remind us-
Past is done and dusted.
And to live and let live…

And rare do it altogether!
And rare do it altogether!!
Making all liquid sunsets-
And the skies blush in red.
There the ‘Prince of contradictions’, made his way!

Parvathy Ramachandran
