Walking on the edge of a river-7

English Translation – Swathi Sreepada

Telugu original written by – Dr.C.Bhavani Devi

7. A lonely mother-root

Though we run endlessly
Along the time indicator
Who can have their own at the end?
Hovered agony at the lonely end
Behind the pretense of seriousness
Grumbling and giving up
In the attack of the winds of nightmares
When the terror of death shivers …

Around me all were mine in those days
As if living for each other
As if the troubles of one are every ones’
But finally, what remained is the hunger of love
Mother and father, sisters and brothers
Though spending life separately
Mother-root only holds them strongly
When other child roots hug the main root crisscrossed
Mother-root alone provides food to the family-tree

If the mother-root shatters and blends in the soil
The distance between the child roots moves afar to join the hands
Suffocating in the running life
With varied useless addicted tunes
They break the main causes of existence

A single mother -root
Can hold together any number of child roots
If that vanishes
Everything becomes a chaos
