Why we write: What we write

Pratibha Varma

An open letter to poets and writers,

who weave rainbows on cloudless skies,

and construct parallel universes

For potent highs,

To those who pen to wash

hate slogans off tainted souls;

to rescue ageing genies

from bottled quotes;

To those who write

to denounce cultural contraceptions

and conceive survivals

through cosmic reunions;

I get inspired to write and post,

and god forbid if you find me lost,

don't disown me for my weird pronunciations

and erred conversations;

For reluctant phrases and grammatical disgraces;

Accept me in my truest version,

true to my love, true to my pain,

true to my fears,

true and brave,

true like tears on a martyr's grave!


Poet Pratibha Varma

lives in Dibrugarh, Assam
