Sharmishtha Basu is an unemployed artist, writer who is out to test her works, looking for publicists, literary agents and gallant, generous readers, to see if they can help her to build an “unorthodox” career, a path followed by many before, some has been blessed with success, most have not, let us see what you make of her attempts! A failure or success- it all depends on you. These are pieces from her book, the book is available on createspace and amazon- It is a collection of poems and black and white illustrations to go with them. Some are photographs, others paintings, cyber sketches mainly.
Wisdom says success should be very wary
not of powerful foes but of weak mates.
For we never show our weakness to a foe
but all weapons are surrendered to a friend.
So if a mate strikes its always deadly
its true mates are not supposed to!
But sometimes they destroy mates
and give friendship a bad name.
When two beings are always together
pain, jealousy or rude words creep in.
Friends ignore them but mates don’t
sometimes they form bitter rage.
If the love never existed between them
or it was too weak, rage wins.
One is destroyed by the other
One who still trusts and that becomes his ruin.
