Rasaraj Nath's poem EVEN THEN I ( Translation of 'Tathapio Aami' )

I shall write only about myself
though I do not have any
history of that kind
even then, I shall about myself

Am I one of those dead poets
whose haunted souls have become stony calm
with masturbation and surrender ?

From stage to poetry I
from poetry to stage
have returned repeatedly - and
become subject of their stories

I know between rise and fall
human being's frail fear of timewrap

I know
the mountain could not be removed by me
even then I shall give a push
and shall write about myself, my story--
