My Room and My Memories | A Poem by Neeraj Kumar

My room
And
My memories
Both are full of
Rotten suffocation,
I live among them.

Changing weather
And
Passing days
Keep bringing
So many shifts!
Good and bad —
I keep on sorting.

Bitter memories
Could I erase
Out of my mind
Anyhow,
I live in this effort.

With golden moments
May I decorate
My home
Sequentially,
I keep on searching such a plan.

Sometimes
When the darkness of mind
Envelopes me
with black,
I come to my balcony.

May a beam
Come spontaneously
From somewhere
To enlighten me,
I keep on waiting.

Trap of Life
Can be broken
Only by an Arjun
I search him in Abhimanyu.
