Inevitable Word

Purchase Thy Smile

Sonnet-An Invocation to the Master #262

A rigged game is this, a battle one-sided,
The end determined at moment of birth
As night is certain when sun has dawned,
A season of toils with pause by death.

What is my piffling breath beside these,
Nature primordial and Thou immutable,
The haloed gods and pitiless demons
Frame a picture of all agencies hostile.

But now it ends, I shall strive no more,
Claim Thy victory from my being prone,
A trophy add to Thy haloed lore
Violently wrested, a prize unjustly won.

Purchase then Thy smile from my defeat,
Even in my fall Thy pleasure I’ll deny not.

Inevitable Word is a pedestal for the newer forms of Poetry, Prose and literary Criticism. It is an attempt to bring into every manuscript the inevitable word and expression of the Spirit, as may be found in the Vedas, and more prominently, in the works of Sri Aurobindo.
