Vidrohi: The Rebel

A fragment from 

Vidrohi: The Rebel 
by Kazi Nazrul Islam

I am unstoppable, irresponsible, brutal,

I am Nataraja, I destroy the universe

     with my metered dance.

Like a cyclone, I blow fear into the hearts of men,

I crush underfoot rules and traditions,

fully laden boats I sink: a dark menace,

     a torpedo, a floating mine.

My hair disheveled, I am the untimely storm,

unpredictable. I am the first raindrop.

Tenderly, I kiss the parched soil.

Rebel incarnate I have come

     from the womb of Mother Universe.__________
