Estranged - Musings

I have always been fascinated by the paradox of life. What is far, is near, what is near is far, what we love, we fear, what we fear, we seem to love, what we think is living is dying and what we think of dying could be actually living...rich, poor, happiness, sadness...they are all but the two sides of the same coin...so different, so near, yet so far. Inseparable, yet estranged.
1994, Mumbai

The sea to the skies
Night to day
Fire to air
Cloud to sun

Life to death
Sleep to wakefulness
Winning to losing
Love to hate

Joy to sorrow
Dreams to reality
Pain to pleasure
Confusion to realization

These I know
Empathize with my perpetual ache
Like us
Estranged – so near yet so far
