A LONELY VOYAGE ~by Bipul Kalita




The sold souls
try to sell those of ours
at the cheapest prices to misers
trying to popularize their new identities.

I can’t sell my vision
I can’t post my sale rate in the air
I can’t boast of being auctioned in a bazaar

In the valley of sadness
my ego roams
looking back to the grand past,
my sorrows bloom in bloody thorns
shaking rigid missions of the purest vision

I can’t overlook serious sights
I can’t overlook the poor’s deepest sighs
I can’t overlook my ego’s crawling pains

The sold souls
can’t sell my conscience
can’t tell you the tales of noble minds
covering their faces with their souls’ shrouds
concealing their eyes with their shameless smiles
to try to popularize their ever new sightless identities.
