Say no to your destiny

How do you not say no to your destiny

And not find your own path,if any

Mark your own place in this world

To have your say you must be bold

Follow your destiny and bid your time

Soon you be old and time to say good by

So roll up your sleeves and put shoulders to the wheel

It won’t be easy but satisfaction you will feel

A path not marked by destiny for you to follow

Dangers will be plenty but life will not be hollow

You may fail or you may soar

But go ahead and explore without fear

You are the man to make your own destiny

You will mark your own time and place, no doubt, not any

So go ahead and say no to your destiny

Poetry is my passion. I am not a methodical writer. I have no set topics to write about. What I feel, perceive, think about, I will like to share in this blog. I open my mind to the world. Like the weather, sometimes my poems are cloudy, sometimes stormy. I always like to see sunshine streaming through the leaves of trees, so I hope I can share some of those sunshine with my readers.

      1. Disturbing to say the least.
        CAB will ensure that Assamese becomes a minority in Assam like original Tripuris in Tripura.
        That’s why I encourage you to be proficient in Assamese.
        In Dr. Bhupen Hazarika’s words, ” মোৰ আইক ভাল পাওঁ বুলিলে জানো আনৰ আইক ঘিণ কৰাটো বুজাব।”

  1. So sad about the situtation in India too, Pranab. I guess people need to always fight for our civil rights, culture and minorised languages everywhere in the world. As a Catalan person I understand this very well because I speak a minorised language. I love the content and form of your poem. The rhymes are very well done.

    1. Thanks Marta.
      Very disturbed for the last month or so due to the prevailing situation back home in my home state of Assam. Assamese people are gradually becoming a minority in our own home state due to continuous migration from neighboring country and politicians just playing to their vote banks.

      1. You are welcome. Yes, it is sad. Our world needs to protect minorities. As a Catalan I can assure you I totally empathise with this unfair situation. My thoughts are with you.
