Odyssey of Life
by Tarak Mahadi
Heart bits in dark & light
Yours, ours & mine
It is life; the divine;
Tactile & intangible
To bind with our time,
With the finite & infinite
It is you & I.
Some bits in between sound & silence
With the infinite to the finite
The message; the mystic
There they are, the light but repressed
By the evil of greed & ignorance
They brought the story of time;
Past present & future
Yours, ours & mine.
Now no bits in between or in sound & silence
Now it is the true singularity
No tactile nor any bonding of life
No war or any deception
Now it is I; the intangibility,
No! I have nothing to prove you
Death has nothing to prove you!
It is the life; has to be divine!
It is the soul; to perceive the great intangibility!
It is us with the great power & responsibility!
