moments from the journey poem 15

moments from the journey

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.

Moments from the journey

No one holds the right to make you sad
to make you feel you are not too good!
You have every right to keep away
from someone who steals your wind.

Always listen to their words
but from a safe distance.
Don’t let their poisoned words
run through the vein of your life.

Yes, yes I know our critics
Often show us our follies.
But they can be Cyclopic too
seeing only our mistakes.

So it’s wise to keep a distance
lest their roars subdue our song.
So we can hear their words clearly
but their roar won’t choke our spirit.

After all, it’s our life!
If we win we are winner
if we lose we are loser.
So we should decide the path!

Critics are not always enemies
nor are they always well-wishers.
It’s best to listen to them to the limit,
When their words hit our brain not spirit!
