Message of the Year Gone

by Nuggehalli Pankaja
(Bangalore, India)

Seconds...Minutes...Hours,
Weeks.....Days.....Months
Surfaces from tomb of yesterdays,
And file past
Demanding
"Did we not give
Our best years of life
To you? With great trust?


But you! You?
Squandered it thoughtlessly
Unaware of the ‘VALUE OF TIME-
‘TIME………THE MOTHER OF UNIVERSE!’
Betrayed our trust,
Murdering
Alas, a future glorious
Of yours, by ‘THE HAND OF YOURS-
YOURS ONLY!’


Weeping, fade we, into folds of past,
Carrying back what we had brought-
Our ‘GOLDMINE OF SUCCESS’………….
NO…….Smile not we twice…….
OH MAN!

Fancy time
by: Anita R. Belagodu

Unfulfilled desires, ambitions, frustrations, unaccomplished tasks, betrayal, promising time, wasted effort we had it all and hoping for another year of better luck and better times. Waiting in hope and in regret, fulfilled in expectation of the unexpected, of uncertain and unsure things in life. I share your feelings maam. Realistic and just poem.
