Oubliette - Dawn

Just as I float through empty space,

I see myself trapped on a nameless wall

As darkness cloaks my footprints trace

Imprisoned soul seeks the light

Darkness dies and enlightenment awaits

Walking ahead on an endless road

Memories scar on every bend

The end is nigh I might sink

Floats in hope, with a silly grin.

Life swings in many ways…

And rhymes without a reason.

Just One Single Impression...

Gyanban Thoughts - Life has more questions to offer than answers,somewhere this imbalance and uncertainty becomes a pattern and starts to form a whole truth in itself.We feel trapped when circumstances are unfavorable.Yet as the dynamics change,the same environment seems a more comfortable place to be in.We are but prisoners of life.

  3. Lovely work! Reminds me of the phrase 'change is the only constant'...something I have to tell myself when things get tough. It's interesting how we perceive our lives through the lenses of how we are feeling because of what we think we may be going through...
