 Here I Live

'Here I Live' is a poem written by Anuj Nair. It is a Picture poem / Photo poem.

Here I Live

Countless specks make, a globule, for a while
Accumulated dust, a settlement, new life
Like fungus on a bread loaf, a jungle for a while
Organisms thrive, a new world, new life

Width of a forefinger, a track in dust, I write
Characters self made, a track of sound, my name
In accumulated dust, to prove myself, a mite
Calculations myriad, to make myself, a name

What I see and hear, I learn to live, I earn
More and more I hoard, till my death, I yearn
Not a speck my own, do I bring, when I come
Not a speck 'I own', can I take when I leave
Accumulated dust, here I live, I die
