One Poem by Sushant Thapa


Solitary Life

A promise unfulfilled

A remembrance unwatched

Like a silent wooden barn

With no herds returning soon

Modernity screams in the concrete jungle

I implant a thought about thinking and remember that

Somebody had whispered that thoughts are trivial.

What would a solitary life do?

Think and make physical touch upon things

Like a flexible doctrine of some philosophy

That never leaves you alone.

A joyful river flows in symphony

Yet flowing with the smile

Shining recently on the face of time.
