Pune, Senapati Bapat Road
Tell me what should I do?
I’m deaf to din, blind to hue
Tell me where should I go?
The seeds of mystery I want to sow
Tell me how to get rid of this confusion?
Succumb to the crowd, faces and derision
Tell me if I should dare to dare?
Ordinariness and routine, a strong pair
Tell me when should I confront my fear?
I am a dreamer but they say we need a doer
Tell me how to suppress my passion?
Just be myself, overlook the fashion
Tell me where can I find solace?
I am slow, cannot match the pace
Tell me what to do when I’m alone?
I have nothing to do, my worth is unknown
Tell me when to reflect, to retrospect?
Days are limited, heaps to resurrect
Tell me how to know if words are truly meant?
Belief betrays me, leaving behind a dent
Tell me why this perplexity hounds me?
Questions surround me, like the branches of a tree
