O Life, Please

Dr. O. P. Arora


O life, no, please
not good to tease
an innocent, simple person
with your knotty questions…
Fool, I have wasted my life
churning over those teasers
even mystics failed to answer
though cleverly played on their fife…
But why come mocking at me?
Blue-eyed, you are beautiful
our love-hate relationship , joyful…
But you , certainly, a maze
Interesting, fascinating, tempting
yet, very baffling, deceiving
the only opening, camouflaged
hidden in a thick haze…
