Ashraful Kabir, Poet, Bangladesh

Far, far going farther every day; and
While going, I concentrate on every moment
Of the changed currents,
Why does an invisible gravity pull the path so closer?

Turning around endlessly; and
From the proximity of the large eruption –
I loiter about back and forth.
After that, walking and walking on foot,
And being tired of running away and with a fiery sunshine
I stop my journey.

No, it’s not the end; it’s not the end of the journey
This is just the beginning of the story –
Occasionally that fades into a fog
Unexpected! Now and then
It smiles satirically.
