It seems I did not exist It seems that I was not a tace of the air an echo coming from another era. Only your silence reminds me of myself, only the wild horses, who graze my feet can understand a heart that is a wound now … It seems I did not exist; It seems I had not existed as a remembrance; Turned with my sight to a shadow …
We are not all given the same fate, some simply realize it too late. The most important of all is knowing how to get up when you fall. We collect scars as memories, each carrying a story and a new experiences. That’s why it’s unnecessary to cry, whoever says that there are none, lies. We shouldn’t hide them not even when they overwhelm us. They should be mentioned as lessons learned. The scars we wear are a sign that we are fulfilling the life line. They are like day and night, happiness and sorrow. When we think it’s over, a new day is coming tomorrow.

My dear, before you go Take a box if you can And fill all memories in That come my way: Your painting in my heart Your perfume in my mind
I’m so feeble to open door Of my heart to let you go You also do that yourself Also pray with God To make me strong enough Before you go So i may never ever shed Tears in my eyes and cry Like exactly what i mind not To see changing seasons
I’ve been writing love letters since he left, but those letters were never sent. I am waiting for a love letter that may never arrive, but I will wait as long as I live. When love is forbidden, letters are forbidden, too. That we mustn’t love each other and that it will hurt, we knew. But the love we once had is still in us. He composes songs in which I can hear his longing voice. While playing ballads, his guitar cries. In my poems he can read the love from each verse and feel that each poem is soaked with tears. It is our way of writing love letters so that our threads of love are invisible to the eyes of others. We correspond secretly in rhythm and rhyme, and our love remains recorded for all time.
আকাশই থাকো, নীলা। নীল দিয়ে, নীল নিয়ে আমি সাগর থেকে যাই। তোমার পুষ্পমৌনতা আমার স্নিগ্ধ মধুর। এতোদূরে থেকে একদম কাছে। স্পর্শকাতরতা থাকতে দাও, সজীব,নির্জীব ভরাসংসার তোমার আমার। কেউ স্বাচ্ছন্দ্যে স্বচ্ছল, কেউ নিঃস্ব। জীর্ণ শরীরে শীর্ণ কুটির, কেউ বা দারিদ্র আঘাতে উদ্বাস্তু নির্ধন। দেখে তোমার মাতৃনয়নে অদৃশ্য মনব্যথা অশ্রু , পুরুষ হয়েও বাধ্য চুপ, নিরুপায় আমি। আলো হেরে যায়, বাতাস পরাজিত হয়, জলাশয়ে মনগড়া শাসন, শোষণ। ভাবি-,ভালই ছিল আদিমতা, ছিল যে সাম্যবাদ। এ ভাবনা ভেবে কী হবে বলো, এযে অতীত, একেবারে বিলীন। এখন বইছে যে হাওয়া, সেই হাওয়ায় থেকে প্রকৃত প্রকৃতি পুরুষ হয়ে সদাচোখে নতুন স্বপ্ন রেখে চলছি যেমন, চলতে থাকি। একদিন দেখো,- আসবেই অমল প্রকৃতির সাম্য পৃথিবী।
Golden moments already in grave since long Ask me not how they got lost or disappeared How they missed their status in Time’s broad street I know the knowledge is far-fetched beyond my reach
How I can trust them in this thick shades of distrust Clasping me hard from all corners The helplessness of the soft flowers seems unfair With the updated status sans practical sense to defend themselves
Me an unchangeable soul changing with the pace of time Now shattered into pieces… Totally lonely in this vast world of mankind In absolute darkness devoid of Humanity.
The quest for life began in true light to survival, envisaging an unseen future in a way not really comprehended. And gradually, future bridges come into construction as humans engage in cultivating a habit of learning towards surviving an unforeseen moment. Numerous challenges were embattled and the likes of vilification among heterogeneity debased many intellectuals in presence of high brow, equality became a war of thought as many in this regard do not comprehend even at the expense of having such life, an euphemistic approach is used to destabilized human minds and this took a long time before it was been discovered, and thus, various researches that are viable thought really stabilized learning process. For this reason, it becomes imperative to ascertain the best approach which is everlasting to future generations to perfect a lifetime through a sense of veracity among peaceful great minds. The future of nationhood is very paramount in terms of survival as everyone engages in the quest of living. There are various faculties of knowledge that are vast and versed in learning and this prompt and encourages people to develop a sense of discipline which will guide them in a lifetime. It of no doubt that some are faced by ripples of life which is a big challenge to human that does not comprehend it when it comes their way, therefore, it is a great deal to great minds to stand relevant to humanity calls and these had been a sense of salvaging others in faculty growth irrespective of background to have sane education rather than fall a victim of circumstance since life is full of an irony. More so, an augury of an incessant bad communication process through humans having such a sense of reasoning ideology towards survival which had deeply ruined brains in developing positively becomes a cumbersome challenge in education discipline, therefore stirred up relevant brains in so many faculty of reasoning as literature is as always as life itself. Ends, as a great learned teacher of great minds that comprehends an antithesis of life, it is a fulfilling path to have bestowed and impart positive knowledge which will salvage lives from generation to generation without going astray.
