Zero
          Geetha Ravindran

From nothing
It starts…
One – 1
Struggling to attach
Zeros …more and more
Ten – 10
A hundred – 100
Then to thousand -1000
And further…
Lakhs in to tens and
Then aiming at crores…
Rich! Very rich, still;
Up! Man’s desires simply sour up!
With many over-whelming zeros…!
Until he faints himself in to a zero,
An absolute nothing!
