I Can Be Anything
Avish Mohapatra | 08-05-2023
In a random town,
Some lane I was walking down,
When somebody asked, Hey!
Are you a girl or a boy?
Smilingly I said, just a moment!
An atom or even a mess.
Unlike other messes I encountered,
A potent machinery or personage;
I am subtle if not impeccable,
However, I can connect to nature!
What if we have no gender?
I just wonder,
Ain’t we at birth; just a random mass?
Nothing more, nothing less;
Can’t we simply be energy packets?
A mess of stardust or stuff,
Just we can be a speck of Cosmos?
Waitin’ to be merged into this universe.
Sometimes nothing as an atom;
Or a mere particle of dust!
