Living in the Age of Blasted Hopes

Varied splendor
Of human skill.
Ever rising pyramids
Of human expectations.
Commentators extolling
The virtues of the players.

*****

Between moments of singing with the praise singers
Victory and brutal defeats
Men; women tearing at themselves
Pushing their limits
Lies…Glory, Exhilaration;
Doomed ambitions; shattered dreams.

*****

With last vestiges of hope
Within the confines of the stadium
I stand confused
Suppressing my disappointment
Whether to laud the efforts of the athletes*
Or rue at their failures.

*athletes- Indian athletes and their performance at Rio Olympics
