Trust Me, You are Fine

If the setting sun steals your smile
I’ll point you thousand reasons to relish
But before that reflect on those dead ends like-
The savings of a third world middle class family man,
Or an attractive face that always lived inside burka,
Or a teenage boy cleaning saucepan in a tea stall,
Or the melting polar caps infuriating the pacific,
Or the bullet holes on the breast of ozone film,
Or the sleeping couple on Indian footpath,
Or the pregnant member of a cathouse,
Or the fate of a cane-field love story…
Give it a moment my friend and
You’ll have reason to lament-
They won’t have a sunrise!
