Latent fire

Purification by fire

is my personal alchemy-

latent heat inside me

 

Rising after a fall

in the eyes that matter-

a few who look up to me

 

Fighting my self-

but not the world

a few unwashed stains block me

 

Not conceding defeat

I’m neither helpless nor weak

a few destinations-still beckon me

 

Just scanned a few pages

countdown not begun- yet

the whole book- still challenges me

 

Translatin of a Hindi poem by Amit Agrawal (hecblogger) at

Aag abhi baaki hai
