After An Untimely Push

It is an untimely push to wake up at that hour

Said in a colloquial language which carried a harrowing sentiment

Of a world in a hurry; where a man cannot rest until the last breath

Time is entirely essential for a selfish reason

What are the chances of escaping an inhibiting world?

One cannot perceive freedom as a betrayal- anomalies of an opaque world

Many heavy definitions are mere sarcasm and caricature

Tomorrow becomes a contrived idea… there are apprehensions of the past

Still lingering in the backdrop of a tumultuous age

Roads have taken a wrong turn; a winding and tiring journey

Barren lands, fruitless trees, unpleasant rivers, and shrinking bonhomie
