Karma – By Dr. Ritu Dewan

Karma – By Dr. Ritu Dewan

Like a child

I tried to reach out

For the stars

I got some

I lost some

Why then do I have

A feeling of disquiet?


A clever businessman

Makes a cruel bargain

With one hand he gives


And with the other

He snatches away.

A constant question

Haunts me

Are things ordained?

Can one really carve out

One’s future?

If success is ordained

Then so is tragedy.

Like a candle melts

Tormenting and burning itself

Yet giving light to others

I melt,

Is it destiny,

Wrong Choices



Ritu Dewan 1997

    Beautiful verse.Speaks reality of life.Our karmas
    determine our destiny .When sufferings eclipse
    the path of our life, we blame God without realising that it’s only our karma that has led us into that situation.Very well expressed

    Being a candle is difficult because one must first burn in order to emit light.
    But than only you are worthy that’s karma
