विडम्बना (Irony)

 

 

विडम्बना (Irony)

 

I am the voice

In the sea of deaf,

Having the curse of sight

I am lone among the sightless

It’s futile

To be the knower among

Those who don’t want to know

My land withers, in pain

Like Lakshmana* in the battlefield,

The Sanjeevani* in grasp

Yet I am powerless

To ease its suffering
