The Poetic Art by Rabindranath Tagore
Still wasn’t there sad and happy moments in your life
the quarrel for hope and despair,just like us
O our immortal poet? Did you not have to face

political meeting, conspiracy, every step of the way?
were you not subjected to the pain of insult,
disregard,deception and unfair verdict,
you witnessed the cruel effects of poverty,
and spent several sleepless nights with a heavy chest.
Still he is above all free and clean
blossomed with beautiful poetry
in the midst of this joyous occasion he has no place
there is no sign of sadness or adversity.
He struggled with all the misfortunes alone,in the end
bestowed all the great things he achieved to his people.
Lest you feel I may understand you easily is this why you pretend to be what you are not__
outwardly you are a picture of happiness inside you are filled with tears.
I understand dear,I understand this deception
whatever you want to express you refrain from saying.
Fearing that I may grasp you with ease you avoid giving me any clue___
lest I try to include you in a group you act indifferent and unfriendly.
I know dear, I know dear your deceptive trick___
the path you would like to take you do not.
You want much more than everyone, is this the reason why you leave____
you avoid showing disrespect is this why you pretend to play and immerse your beggar’s bag?
I fathom,I fathom your pretense___
What satisfied everyone failed to satisfy you.
