Must Combat

Laughing like a star

Beside the light, shining gloomy

Flowing into oil

The clinks of a lone flag

On the crumbling mount

The foresight for garlands of claps

At the end of helplessness

The pomp of Congratulations

Hanging at the end

…might not be a Victory

Risking all happiness..

…might not be a Victory

May be it’s not such great

To struggle and achieve

At the end of the cosmic sounds

To know the definition of

The endless tranquility

Carrying miles on the wings

The will of a bird…

The viscosity of the cold moonlight

Rays breaking through the splinters..

Even if it ceases to exist

The joy of water reaching the ground

From the edge of the clouds…

In the alleys of the rocks where no one noticed

Pride of the scattering flowers…

Eager to know it’s where abouts…

Must combat

For one’s defeat

For an end

Without expectations

To receive super natural bliss…

If you want to hear Gaganamani

Singing in the call of Victory…

Must combat
