Silent eyes narrate the day’s monotony
Tries to stretch and squint and catch glimpses of activity
Alas! The crowd is chanting a boring hum
Carrying numerous flawed inferences to design a pattern
Trying to articulate a ho-hum speech
Incessant babel cascade from mindless conversations
Day is perturbed listening to anxious souls
Contrived smiles are stretched beyond limits, almost a caricature
Silent eyes stops gazing through the melee
Wishes to celebrate the silence by reflecting on vast azure©

My interpretation of this: a feeling that describes my angst about the state of politics right now.

Hi Susan, you are not far off with the interpretation, but it is also the type of communication and falsified narratives that influence society over a period of time. Politics means governance for the people and implementation of policies for the people who have chosen them. But,on a daily basis, the politics that is played weakens society’s fabric and creates unrest. The basic problem is miscommunication and propagation of faulty narratives of half-truths. Now, one can decide which side of the truth one chooses to lean towards. Mass hysteria or Individual wisdom?
The mass hysteria around increases my anxiety. The individual wisdom leaves me sometimes feeling alone. I walk in the space between.

I can understand what you said; we sure need to keep a pulse on both sides to come to a balance. We need to be fully aware and armed with critical thinking we can relinquish the unnecessary and have a comfortable space. That’s what I feel.
