Life’s Manuscript

Along the journey

So many ideas have been overwritten

As new ones found acceptance

Such is the fate of life’s palimpsest

Visible tirade of the former

Where words wrangle about legitimacy

Ideas start resembling a knotted rope

Threatening to strangulate originality

Break through the imaginary confines

Seek original ideas and write afresh

Let a new manuscript be adorned

With the ideas that can outlive defiance©
