The Uncomfortable Questions

What was so terrifying about the empty spaces The apprehensions about someone who never thought like everyone A sudden change of direction was necessary to deviate Why the exaggerations were preferred over the simple explanations Then wrapped in harshness and a language of extreme nature That altered the tongue, not in a favourable manner Why were the verdant areas filled with hot desert sands The … Continue reading The Uncomfortable Questions

To Nowhere

Are there any happy depths? I ask this when fear and hatred stay strong Hold themselves together There is unity in their desire to destroy When the crowd trembles to speak Stand up to the atrocious demands Doth protest too much against hope Fanatical cries reprise the situations What is this blind faith about? A world with diminishing clarity Violent words are spoken with equanimity … Continue reading To Nowhere

As They Cave In

Thoughts cave in; it’s futile to pull them back With taut muscles and wrecked brains Fragments of disillusioned emotions also surrender Once, only a flicker of a path was available Now the lights are dull; the temper of existence, tense The hope of crawling towards freedom with all might Something is not right in the fight for control Everything falls apart; they do and permeates … Continue reading As They Cave In
