By Pranab Ghosh


They refuse to leave
They are the shadows
Of life, fighting for
A place in time
That refuses to take


Shadows do not
Make history

Only jeopardise
The tomorrow

With the sun hiding
Behind the shady


They keep sucking
Your vitality
Your life-blood
Your treasure
Your glory
That has been
Reduced to dust!

“Dust thou art
And to dust
Thou shall return.”
