Zero Game: Reflections on Life’s Equation

I alone didn’t keep proper accounts,

Whatever was accumulated was as per His will.

I kept considering it negative as well,

Wrecked the chamber of my heart…

As per my habit,

When I gave everyone a hit, it resulted in zero.

When I distributed everything,

It all ended up at zero.

From my zero’s account,

I kept playing with zeros,

Considering myself as Einstein of life‘s formulas.

Now sitting behind the bars of zero, I laugh!

Perhaps, this was the formula of my laughter.
