This poem is about echoes of life as the name already suggest. It depicts a gloomy and struggling phase of life in the first two lines of the poem.The speaker is grieving the fact that certain relationships
(fragile feathers metaphor) on earth are ephemeral and are bound to leave deep scars on our lives. This poem reflects the confused state of mind,when the speaker realizes that the past has been spent in a not-so-purpose fulfilling way. The speaker has a striking flash of the harsh reality of life and he is wishing only if he could change the wasted part of his life.
#(Ambedo n. a kind of melancholic trance in which you become completely absorbed in vivid sensory details—raindrops skittering down a window, tall trees leaning in the wind, clouds of cream swirling in your coffee—which leads to a dawning awareness of the haunting fragility of life.)

In the end the speaker sets off in a search of the purpose of his life,to fulfill his unsatiable thirst for success and knowledge. He hopes to make out of his life something concrete ,something which is not transitory and can be remenbered for ages to come.

Echoes of life


A melancholy tune ringing in ears

The fragile feathers leave deep scars

Being in a fool's paradise

How shall I embrace this world

Standing on the verge of uncertainty

Living in a baffling limbo

Wish I could grip out the ambedo

Bonds ephemeral that rows away with time

Leaving with no tranquillity inside

A never ending quest for something that lies within

A relentless fight to find yourself in

This unsatiable thirst lingering around

Making you crave for something concrete

That transcends the boundaries of time and space

And that runs through the century's lanes.
