For they forgot

By Rangit Roy

Dreaming , thinking and inking 

Inking , thinking and dreaming 

Till the Heart's beating 

Lungs breathing and eyes blinking 

This soul is a poetry 

This body is a painting 

The world around has cut off my wings

And dragged me down into the dirt

But they forgot

For the sky !'m bird

For the water !'m flood 

For the the sand !'m cactus 

For the mud !'m lotus 

And for the paper !'m ink and blood..
