My pen

Hasn’t a voice

Nimalarajan.

My voice

Has no wings.

Birds with a voice

Never sing.

They only chatter.

And

Birds with wings never fly.

The year

Just Passed like a day..

If you could sang

Thousands of songs.

If you could fly

To a far distant place.

The year

Just passed like a day.

And next

Is a New

Day?

My pen

Hasn’t a voice

Nimalarajan.

My voice

Has no wings.
