Perspectives: A poem by Mousumee Baruah

Everything is temporary, relative
Nothing is permanent, all are tentative
What suits me
May ruin thee
So let discard megalomaniac me.
Life is a long voyage
Depends on how we manage
Ourselves in time of joys and adversity
About relationships and it’s various diversity.
Trying to understand others views with clarity
Life is a maiden beautiful
Life is a  sky wonderful
If we are less judgemental
And more wise and unsentimental
And endorse other’s potential.
Life is a beautiful painting
Life is a sermon chanting
If perspective is unbiased, not demanding
Life is poetry solemn
Set us free, like monk noble
