I am not a leader

Neither a pleader

I cannot take brief

To defend anybody from nemesis and aggrieved

I even cannot taste how success percolates

Making people happy

Many are craving to assert its dew only

In the ocean of emotions of myriad

I only oscillate on its waves

Before ecstasy engulf me

I am suspended in an amazing wrapper

Which continuously change its color and clamor?

I travel with an amazing speed

It is inherent on me by nature’s intriguing fabric

I cannot deduce at a time

My velocity or quantity, which one is prime?

I am in deluge

Series of events engulf me, not giving at all any recluse

Poor soul I possess

Having no opportunity to regress

I am mere a product of past

Which only propound on me in chorus?

I am in quandary

Who are actually legendary?

What they truly possess?

How they ingrained in our cerebral with easy access?

How we carry their flame?

Which is the only eternal we can claim?

Centuries long their existence of travail

To navigate our mindset with an honest trail!


I salute them with awe

They are the true stars, we admire with gnaw

For them we mere satellites

Having no strength to hold our delight

But we must not forget

They are quantity too, not a singular entity

The only flavor of plural community

Lest we may have nothing but to regret

Our entire effort will foil what we beget!

Who am I?

What is my mind?

How rigorously I daily grind

Change is the only constant which triggers me to cry!

I am a helpless creature

Not knowing what to do in an available texture

Am I a victim of circumstances?

Where I have nothing to do apart from adhere

Allowing the flow to blow

Plenty of particles I observe which only glow!

I am enamored by their presence

They alone kindle the life with unique essence

Some are infamous, some are famous

But in the passage of time they all produce ruckus

Evaluating with right magnitude is a distant goal

In our prevalent ambiance they are sheer hyperbole!

Speed of light is not necessarily an achievement in its on own right ? Rapid response is sometimes key other times the sense of urgency is more blurry :-)

The velocity within your personal power to create poetic thought is astonishing.

Thought-provoking poem, Debasish Majumder. And your title - good question! Well done!
