"I Am Just Like Her.....Messy Enough To Need Prayer"

“I could never put something so personal on Facebook.  Can you imagine what people would say about me?” I asked.

My husband and I were having this conversation years ago, about someone who had posted a prayer request, and  the request revealed a lot of personal things some might see as dirty laundry. 623 more words

"স্বীকারোক্তি"

“তোমাকে আগেও বলেছি, তবু আবার
বলি শোন, আমি ছোট
বেলা থেকে কখনও কারো মত
হতে চাইনি, জানো ! অথচ বড়বেলায়
এসে আমি তোমার মত
করে কথা বলতে চেয়েছি,
হাসতে চেয়েছি, তোমার চোখ
দিয়ে সুন্দর কে সুন্দরতর
ভাবে উপলব্ধি করতে চেয়েছি ! আর
তোমার সেই শহুরে বাগান-বিলাস এর
স্ট্যাটাস টার কথা মনে আছে?
আমি যখনই একা একা রিকশায় ঘুরি তখনই
তোমার মত এই শহর দেখতে চেয়েছি !
নিতান্তই পাশ কাটিয়ে চলা রঙ কমলা-
বেগুনি টাও আমি কখন
ভালবেসে ফেলেছি নিজেই
জানি না!  <3
