Deserted by family and friends I have learnt to make friendship with solitude.

Failures after failure made me aloof To rare celebrations of success. Gossips and comments disturb me no more, Life has become immune to rare appreciations Which come once a while.

Oh my god! All my life I have been running, Sometimes panting severely After these rare fleeting moments While the everlasting silence in me Watching and smiling patiently.
