Deepak Kumar Pattanayak

Fate is not a petty thing






Fate is not a petty thing
------------------------
Yet I swear
I can wrestle with her
Can beat if I wish
I am used to pittance
That she provides
I am used to nothingness
That she brings
Between having and not having
If time passes
Without any grumbling
Till paradise
Certain I am to say
That I have humbled her to my wish……
