‘FLY’ by Anuradha Handique

She let herself into a new world;

And let the old world go forever.

Life is short they say,

So why squander in despair that leads nowhere?


She heard the voice of hope,

Greeted dreams on her way on the road

‘Que Sera Sera’ she sang..

Never to stumble again.


Surrounded by good people and deeds,

Is this for real, or is it just a dream?

Here there is no pain or sorrow,

Everybody lives for today not tomorrow.
