Life and darkness

- Manish Lamichhane

Nov 7, 2018-

I am lost somewhere, 

Finding myself, 

Between the light and darkness,

Between reality and virtuality,

And a small untold,

Unreadable story.


You are not I,

I am not you,

What you show, 

I don’t see,

You see,

What I don’t show.

Death is your end, 

But not for me, 

For it lies beneath the tree. 

It is not only the tree

But what I need,

I need to witness it myself, 

Burnt yet drifting ash,

For I have to find myself, 

Between this life,

And darkness.


Lamichhane is a grade 12 student at Khwopa Higher Secondary School, Bhaktapur
