An image

My pain doesn’t cause you hurt

I guess that’s as should be

In the end I stand alone

Alone, though never free
You’re right, of course, it’s true

I’ve done far worse you say

You say I’ve walked away

Left nothing more to say


And that’s why you’ve moved on

Made your life up anew

Who am I to complain?

What am I, now, to you?


A monster plucked from hell

With hope to salvage, save

A hope you found was doomed

I am the lowest knave


So aim more knives at me

Cut me down to size

Hew me close to ground

So I will never rise


Join the laughing crowd

You won’t hear me complain

For I am dead inside

I won’t protest again.




About hbhatnagar

I need to fill this up with much better content than I had populated it with earlier. Why I write a blog maybe? I started blogging in 2009 or thereabouts. I was a newly turned atheist and wanted to converse with others of the same persuasion. We're not exactly a big population group in India! It didn't go very well and I sort of lost interest, posting a few things now and then. I got a lot more regular over the last few months and have been posting almost daily since February '15. There were many reasons why I gradually became more regular in posting, but one way or the other, here I am! So this blog has taken shape, being at different points in time my showcase, my comedy club, my art gallery, my book club, my therapist, my close friend, my innermost self....but always my little corner of the world. You are all welcome to visit and I hope you stay awhile! A few points about me because I don't want to lead anyone on(and trust me this does become an issue more often than I'd care to admit). I'm Indian, the brown-skinned variety; if race, ethnicity or skin colour is an issue, you don't have to get to know me any more than what you see on my blog. I'm 40, so if age is an issue, please be informed accordingly. I was a doctor, an ophthalmic surgeon for 10 years before I quit practice.
