Transformation

When transformations have gone wrong

Highlighting the secret efforts of twilight zone

Ruination has coerced the souls to quieten

Day’s smiles and evening grandeur are feigned

Gated entry to world of boundaries

There is no freedom for the trees, birds, and winds

Once verdant valleys look misshapen

Uninformed sculptors destroyed the natural essence

Reconciliation with the unnatural world

Aesthetics is a long forgotten philosophy

Breathing forcefully within the confines of a book

Uprooted, life breathes on unemotional theories

Minds hobble with unease to a designated world

Boundaries will determine the dreams

Long shadows of tiredness will kiss the gates

With feeble effort to convince the iron will©

    1. Thank you so much, Tiffany.
      On a serious note I would love to read some poetry from you. You can do it, I know. I am sure you have many ideas which are waiting to be expressed on paper.
      Always, appreciate your wonderful comments. 🙂

    1. Well, I agree with you, Taruna, “facade of normality”, which for me seems contrived idea that the world has come to accept and we look for a method to hide behind it.

      We accept the uncomfortable reality and thus term true freedom as non-conformity. Strange logic we have at play in life.

      Thank you so much, you always pick the essence of my poem. It’s wonderful to read your comments. 🙂

  1. Again…the last two lines leave an impact that will haunt me for a while!
    I think you structure your poems very well…it’s just when the reader is done and almost moving to his next post that you create that fantastic moment that holds the attention of the reader! Well done.. I’ve got loads to learn from you!

    1. Thank you so much.

      I guess all the feelings percolate and express themselves in the form of a strong potion, that awakens the mind.

      The finishing touches to the imagery created is important to inspire the readers to think. 🙂
