~Walls Of Hospital~

The walls,

Walls of a hospital,

They have heard cries,

Cries of an old lady

Who lost her son in an accident.

They have seen grinning

Grinning of a Father

At the first cry of his tiny infant.

The walls of hospital,

From Birth to death

They have seen it all

They stand there

Taking in all the jouissance and delirium.

They stand there

When the doctors leave.

They stand there

When a patient is alone.

They’ve heard,

Prayers and curses.

From the coldness of Mortuary

To the elation in neonate ward.

They are dipped in fumes of infections

Surrounded by the smell of drugs

Wrapped up in haughty authority

These are the walls of hospital

Of a place that gifts life,

A place that gifts an after life,

A place that gives serenity to suffering.
