Hello Life, From my confinement
I'm writing from my confinement area
After more than thirty years,
I've found the time to!
You are a mystery
On top of being a punisher!
You have attracted me from
When I was up there
Swivelling in the cosmic energy
Of the Universe
Through the colours that you reflect
In both day time and night time
I saw people laughing happily
And I told myself
This must be a world of pleasure!
You showed me only a part of your truth
You showed me only childhood and innocence
You refrained from showing me old age,
Disease and the hurt of having one's purity
As I swim in your murky waters
All I ever do
Is to wish I never came here!
You remain an intelligent bluffer
And I, a fool, having fallen for your art!
You remain a fake crystal
Glistening as would a genuine one
And I fell for your sparkles
Only to see how easily you rust
And lose your lustre!
Somehow, show me the exit
Towards where wisdom and divinity
Bask and I
Shall ever be grateful to you!
I sit and wait for Death
I sit and watch the skies
As would old people
Having already lived their lives
And seen the world
But being way too tired to
Have any strength in them
To move their bodies
And claim to own the world!
I sit and watch life
As it saunters on its way
Ignorant that it swivels
That shall lead it to nowhere!
Fiddle my fingers
And wonder at how life would have been
Had I not chosen to stick
To the principles given to me
By those powers watching over me
Ever so subtly!
Of feminine freedom,
Of letting the wind rush through my unruly hair
And of being wild
As would be untamed tribes in unexplored forested areas!
I sit, from my confined position
And watch the skies,
Wondering at where shall death take me!
Is Earth angry at us?
Is Earth trying to punish us
By making us cough to our deaths?
Then, it is high time
To realise that
We are to change our habits
And our lifestyle
To a more reclusive
And orthodox one
To be in line
With Earth's healthy clime!
We have been jumping on her soils
As pampered brats
Caring solely to please ourselves
Without any regard
To our environment!
We have even been massively killing
All the flora and the fauna
Merely to reap of their benefits
To suit our needs
Without ever wondering
At how Earth feels
At having to give us all that she does!
Earth's anger will pass,
It always does
But like a shining light in a reflecting mirror
The doom and gloom can hit right back at us
If we hold not
Earth's heart in our palms
And cherish it dearly!
