A Birthday Soliloquy

A Birthday Soliloquy

2 mins 544 2 mins 544

It's again a joyous day, October Thirty-First;

You descended eighteen summers ago on this Earth,

To bless its feet by your feet,

To quench the prolong thirst

Of Someone, whose life is full of the dearth

Of love and merriness, which would meet

Surely to the doom unless your birth

Safeguard it. That 'Someone' would burst

With delight and love if your love's heat

Will ignite his heart and make it peat,

Which would burn for the sake of the worst,

Who keeps a little or no worth.


I confess before you that I am 'Mr. Someone'

And would drink hemlock if it tasted like you

And crown you the 'Conqueror' of my heart

And request you not to depart

From my melancholy life as after 'Who'

Would be my life other than you? None!

You are the beauty of a delightful day,

But also the pain of a forlorn night.

Listen what the verses of Kierkegaard say:

"Life can only be understood backwards;

But it must be lived forwards"

And me, following this with all my might.


I create new memories to delete the old ones,

But you still find room in every new memory.

The clear stream of thought that runs

Make me sleep in the deepest reverie

And I imagine there that a human heart-

Cost in millions- I gave it to you for free.

So never, never and ever; O! you depart

But pour your love to bloom this withered tree.

O, what sufferings have I to bear

As inferno for not accepting you as my paradise?

I don't keep this thought so near,

As this mere poet is not so wise!
