Life is But A Dream.


Ever drifting down the stream–
Lingering in the golden gleam–
Life, what is it but a dream?
Lewis Carroll.

Taunts
do not dissuade Veda.
Hurts deep
leave no scar.

Veda: exudes confidence
accepts kindness with good grace,
cruelty with equanimity,
bears humiliation with fortitude,
emerges unscathed.

Her inimitable drive
to acquire knowledge
together with
her passion for writing
wins her honour.

She has a vision, a perception
that looks to the stars;
when her peers
fix eyes in the dust.

Ever hopeful, she
never loses heart;
laments not for the lost
cherishes what is at hand.

She accepts life
with a twinkle in her eyes
quotes,
kayil ullathu aayiram kodi 
that which is in hand is worth
billions.
“Loyalty be thy name!” Veda,
A secret wish,  always
never do we part”.

A revised version.
