Poems, Thoughts

An unusual shift

an unusual shift from chaos to peace
leaving me a dearth of feelings I once found familiarity with
what is anxiety, stress or annoyance
or what is being happy in contrast to all these
like an empty page in a fresh notebook off the shelf
my pen is inkless as I write in twirls
the words are there but invisible
like the blank slate of my mind
a child’s innocence in a new enclosure
I’ll wait for time to paint some colours on the paper
as I wait to see how beautiful this page will be
watch it narrate this new path of a life
that felt strange the moment I stepped into an unusual shift from chaos to peace

Poems

The Child of Freedom

You’re like that rose

Thorny but beautiful

They look at you

With eyes wide open

But child, don’t be afraid

It’s all a human game

A mind puzzle

They snatch your beauty

With just a gaze

But child, don’t be afraid

It’s your time to see the world

A world with roses

A world with thorns

But a blessing of love

Yes child, flap your wings

Soar up like a dove

Bring back the tranquility

The serenity, the peace

We long for it

Yes child, take a look

It’s a beautiful world

When we see the human race

As one family

Of love

 

Go child, it’s in your hands now.
