EXCESS| Rachit Sharma

As a child, I heard

that something is always born out of excess

that true compassion is found as a lifeboat

while drowning through a bottomless chasm of grief

that wars unclothe life of its safety

to test that which blooms against all defense

that suffering on its way, one day, meets empathy

that pain portrays the best of poetry

that all oppression by one leads many to solidarity

that any darkness is dimmed against dreams

and their luminosity


what is excess remain


watching, like mountains

unhealed and hurting

changing shapes, minds, generations, and bodies

remaining unchanged
