Life is nothing but a suspended state (ghazal)

Life is nothing but a suspended state ;
We all are suspended by strings of fate.

Someone else will take away your reaping ;
Your eyes will dry ; waiting for rebate.

What's now- won't be then ; what was-won't be now ;
Life's uncertainty - we cannot negate.

Life is nothing but a suspended state.....


Ephemeral - vulnerable we all are ;
Is intelligent design worth a debate.

He left us in hunger - on creation ;
How can our creator be called so great.

Someone likes my wealth; my possessions ;
When all is gone - with whom should i relate.

Life is nothing but a suspended state.....

Stop repenting ! O besotted lover ;
That girl ain't a claim that you can probate.

'' Rohit '' sees life's truth in those porous eyes ;
Whose state - life did not reciprocate ...

Life is nothing but a suspended state ;
We all are suspended by strings of fate.....

I love form. This ghazal is probably the most UNIQUE in topic and its "tweaks". I liked it, mucho.

What a fascinating form. Orally it must be amazing, read out loud with proper pacing. Thanks for this. Enjoyed.

Agree with the above. Such an interesting form.. especially how each couplet stands on its own. Well worth exploring. Much appreciated. B.
