O, Lord of Lives by Ujjal Mandal

when all men
treat me as impostor

let my mind fill
with serenity
and go out the flame
of anger

let my heart shine
with melody and beauty
like the pearl
of great worth

when all men turn
down my tongue

let you take back the sighs
you gave me once
to breathe endless

and let me put on new dress
of flesh
O, my god!

Bio: Ujjal Mandal is an Indian poet who hails from Ganguria, West Bengal, India. He is the author of two books of poetry: "Ambrosia in Budding Flowers" & "Shobder Phul."
