It was long long ago

When she was chained

From top to toe

Her children were enslaved

In barbarity that grew

Blood was oozing out

From North and South

From East and West

And they struggled

Until the atrocity was troubled

It was vigorously shaken

And the chains were broken

They fought with zeal

Until they could feel

Their last breathe

And just before their death

That last drop of blood

Dropped in glory and pride

To salute the mother

Who in agony cried;

She had lost her precious gems

And the nation salutes them

For their lives they gave away

For this freedom today

Though it was long ago

But with every year to go

We shall value their sacrifice

We shall fulfill their dream

In sovereignty and peace

The nation shall forever gleam!!

It was a busy day

Like any other Friday

People scattered or in crowd

Moving in and out

Friends chatting aloud

Without any doubt

Naive and unaware

Of the nefarious evil

Of the abominable scare

And it all ended in upheaval

The laughter washed out in blood

The romance lost in scream

By malice racing like a flood

When hatred wins over amity

Harmony is beclouded by enmity

Innocent lives are lost

Some dear ones depart

Paying this horrific cost

To vengeance, to a rageful heart

And we forget and move on

Like any other instance

 Coz nothing of ours is gone

May be just this once

Someday it could be me or you

So I have a promise to make

To forgive and to let go

A blunder or a mistake

To lend my hands when needed

To render mercy when pleaded

To kill the monster within me

Against hatred I shall combat

To spread peace and love

To be the serene white dove

And spread this message around

In unity we shall all someday bond!!

Anushree Dutta

Just a year back, on 22.07.2016, Munich (Germany) was shattered by a horrific incident and the peace and harmony of the city was ruined. Many innocent lives were lost to yet another incident, where hatred won over love, vengeance won over forgiveness, and violence won over peace. But there is always hope, and with this hope we all survive every day in love and happiness. This is my attempt to remember all those who lost their lives, with a heavy heart and teary eyes. Nevertheless, I will always hope for peace and prosperity to prevail in the World.

In Search of Me!!

In Search of me

 

One fine day

When I was kind of lost

In my mood grey

With my head so frost

I stepped out of me

In search of me

Unaware and heedless

I moved ahead, breathless

Gasping for air

Nothing could I foresee

In this ambiguous glare

Of this limelight

At this towering height

I made an honest plea

To myself

For mercy and help

To find where I was lost

To bring me back

In a hope to find me one day

This is what I pray…

The Hidden Truth!!

This is how my story begins

With my banishment

Repudiation of my existence

My revelation to prevent

Without even my consent

They try to make a distance

Thinking I may have died

Which was once surely tried

But so is the irony

I can never ever die

No one can ever defy

My existence, my being

Because I am the truth

And this is my reality

The deception of my fatality

Is what they believe in

To hide their gruesome sin!!

 

This is how my story begins

With my attempted murder

Announcing me a martyr

In the war with the untruth

Yet I kept breathing, still alive

And then they tried to contrive

My confidentiality to maintain

In a permanent imperishable chain

Around me, no scope of flight

No hope to escape, to come out

As I was buried deep

In the heart, guarded

By promises and assurance

Until I took a leap

Until I was discovered

My reality was uncovered!!

 

This is how my story ends

For some it may be awful

For some so delightful

As it completely depends

With my revelation

Some are frantic with worry

Some dance in exhilaration

And with my discovery

I may have left some in pain

Yet, I cannot stay forever in chain

Of deceit and falsehood

I have to come out for good

Or bad, or worse,

As that is my essence

I have to someday disperse!!

-Anushree Dutta

My love for you!!

To my sweetest love

As serene as a dove

I wish to treasure you

Just few more years,

After forever!!

I wish to love you

Just few more years,

After forever!!

O my dearest love

If I had to wish today

I shall wish to fall in love

With you each and every day

Till eternity allows me

Till the last day of my stay

Till my soul is set free

My last breath, it shall be!!

For our endearing love

 I hope it stays in the cove

Forever in our heart

And when we are apart

With every beat it takes

Our magical intimacy is felt

To soothe us and our aches

And the unease is dealt

Of our parting, our longing

Every minute that is prolonging

With every breath I take

A request to my heart I make

To stay strong and waveless

In the wait of your voice

In the wait of your touch

In the wait to rejoice

Every moment, of being us again!!

-Anushree Dutta

Do not cry, when I die !!

Do not cry, when I die

Do not cry, when I depart

Remember, I am never totally gone

I have never left you alone

I left behind my scent

That you still can smell

That you can never forget

I left behind the warmth

Of my hugs and kisses

Of the love we shared

I left behind the sensation

The first time we touched

The first time we held hands

I left behind the memories

Of the arguments we had

Of the beautiful life we shared

I left behind the humour

That once made you laugh

And still makes you laugh

I left behind my other half

My soul, on my behalf

And it stays there for you

Till you remember me!

Till you want it to be!

-Anushree Dutta

My First Thought as a Newborn!!

 It was the day I blossomed

The day I was born

Until then wrapped, enwreathed

Before I started to suddenly breathe

On my own, for the first time

Life was a wrestle, yet so sublime

I realized with every gasp I made

As in her arms I laid

This warmth was similar

As she cuddled me

This voice I knew

As she cooed to me

She was the one, my mother

Whom I longed to see!!

With a shine in my eyes

I tried to take a glance

My vision totally blurred

Which was so not preferred

As I struggled to perceive

Yet I could perfectly envision

Her face full of love

Lighting in ecstasy

Nothing could be prettier

Than this moment

So perfectly glorious

Reflected in her warm caress

In her captivating smile

And her eyes, filled with tears!!
