let’s burn

by pushkar prabhat

*wakes up*

*startled, surrounded

in lava, riding the monster*

What should i do, now?

i can’t swim in lava

and eventually, the serpent

would burn up.

The mountain couldn’t

hold it’s secrets.

The aftermath will

consume us all….

There is nothing

anymore, left…..

except to face the heat,

if, i choose, to go up.

What good is this

skin anyways,

if it couldn’t take

me to the end.

what good are these

muscles, if midway

they lose strength.

and what will i

do with these bones,

if couldn’t stand

by my words.

Let’s burn this useless

life, trying…..

i am tired of just

giving up.
