My Shadow – Dr.Manu Batra, Uttarkhand


- Advertisment -spot_img


The day was blooming with delight

I was walking with my mind on height

When her site caught my attention near my boot

She was raven black, as black as soot

On my feet she lay there

I tried to get away from her

But she was still there, so near

I trampled with my shoe

But she didn’t show any change in hue

I frowned at her with all my black bile

But she greeted it with a descent smile

I did my best to make her suffer

he didn’t budge, she was much tougher

Mad with anger I tried the last of gallon

Thunder crashed to earth, light had fallen

She had begun to get trimmer

And at last left my heart in a sinner

I was there dug half in ground

There was darkness all around

No sign of my SHADOW……
