Before the Mirror



If it all were to start again,
May be he would have died in the womb-
May be he would have dressed up like a girl-
May be he would have stayed away from school-
May be he would have never made any friends-
May be he would have never aimed a bull’s eye-
Who knows he might have been an author
To stage someone else’ play!

If it all were to start once again,
May be he would have watched his watch-
May be he would have carried a compass-
May be he would have tasted the his sweat-
May be he would have valued fleeing moments-
May be he would have loved his insomniac heart-
Who knows he might have been a doctor
To heal someone else’ sore!

If it all were to start for one last time,
He would never had dived in those oceanic eyes-
No castle of romance over the eroding wasteland,
No flying carpet and no touch seeking magic lamp;
He would have known how fantasy kills one softly
And seen the veiled tears in living a fairytale-
Who knows he might have been a lover
To care for someone’s heart!
