Once Again

All live only once
with no second option
even if I’m given an option
to have one more life
I’ll wish to relive my journey
once again in the next life,
without customising it to suit
my needs and preferences…

It would be this life
and none other
with all its pains and joys,
struggles, wins and failures
with all the volatility
of permutations and combinations
equations making and breaking
with relatives, friends, frenemies
that give enough ingredients
sweet, sour, spicy and hot
every day, every moment
for thrills and inquisitiveness
to make what is called life…

In the heart of my being,
the iridescent soul
of my animated heart
likes to play melodious tunes
in unison with
the black and white of mind
singing a song of life
that’s unique to me
I don’t wish to lose that uniqueness
in this life or any other life…

–Kaushal Kishore

    1. Yes, we don’t know what’s there in store in next life. At least we are aware of the ins and outs of the present one. Thank you, Joanna for your thoughtful comment.
