I see my image in the water
And I groan;
Have I succumbed to the society?
Have I given up on my principles?
Have I given up on my dreams?
A spark was enough to burn down an entire forest,
But now it’s the one that chilled down.
Amidst this conundrum;
Have I lost myself ?
The shadow crawls up to me,
Engulfing my very existence;
And I ponder upon this thought
Am I ever free?
The everlasting shackles of materialism
Keep me bounded,
Keep me contained,
Keep me enchained,
But alas my spirit is free.
Soaring high but yet not liberated
For there is the human bond that’s inhuman
And the sole reason for miseries.
