Flicker of hope: A poem by Anindita Mazumdar

Flicker of hope, reason to cope,

with unrest and endless battles.

Ground to live and not to bereave

with countless untold rattles.


Mile after mile, for a flash of smile

we flourish and thereby, thrive.

Here we go, by staying in a row,

burgeon and hence stay alive.


Life seems game, for all never same.

Patience to hold it at par.

Time will arrive, even late to derive,

if you wait for the sequel so far.


Successive falls, with destiny’s calls,

following attempts within range.

Let’s provide a scope for this flicker of hope

to prosper and make a change.
