Walking on thin ice


(Written on July 10, 2013)

(First time I felt like writing a poem in English. I wonder whether I could have captured the feeling in Gujarati.)

When the need to help the world

And the want to help the world

Exceed far more than

The capacity to help the world

And when all the happiness that

We can impart and enjoy seem to be

In the  self-absorbed heads of others or

In the indifferent hearts of others or

In the inept hands of others

On such a cold, cloudy, slow day

It feels like walking on thin ice!
