HAPPINESS

By Ngawang Tenzin

 

Four friends crossed the line of control;

one was shot with bullets

another died of starvation

two crossed the rivers

hid in the deep forests

walked on the dark roads;

prayers of Avalokiteshevara the only hope

Before stepping from the fearful den

another died from malaria

bared feet and empty stomach;

welcome by freedom in the alien world.

HAPPINESS is losing dear friends?

I cursed my fate

and GOD… if it exists.
