Most of the time in our life the struggle that we have is with yourself. Freeing and liberating the inner YOU is most of the times the answer to the most deep routed troubles.
I tried hard to escape.
I tried to spread my wings
I knew I was in there somewhere
But I wasn't’t able to see
My vision was obscure
And soon I got engulfed in the never-ending dark
It was suffocating and I drifted off
I dreamt of myself, a different me
Hard to recognize but definitely me
I seemed familiar yet not so known
I was happy, I was free
Radiant me hard to miss
I tried drinking as much joy as I could
But soon there was a storm
And my dream became dark.
I tried escaping again,
I tried to remove the darkness
I was caged and I was scared
And suddenly my dream broke
And it was dark again
I realized the darkness was because of me
I realized I wanted to escape from myself and be free
I realized this wasn't’t me
I remembered the 'Me' in my dreams
I knew the key to my escape
It was setting myself free.
This poem represents the birth of a life and it's journey into the oblivion, marred by various forces, but still rising and finding its expression in the ultimate for which it was born..
The world is not safe for the unborn. Deforestation, corruption, poverty, hatred, murders, immorality, and other challenges are ruling the world.
My first poetry reflecting on the sorry state of affairs surrounding us and the society. We have lost morality and hence there is an urgent need to reform ourselves..
Really interesting, sometimes people need an escape from themselves while others are too busy and need an escape into themselves. It takes contemplation to know yourself and know the difference. I love when I read something that makes me think and I can relate to it on many levels.reply 1
Even most of the time, our identities are based from what society should tell us to. What a reflective poem. thanks for sharing.reply 0
