Looking back at my works, I just realized I wasn't so bad back then, but I'm better now. So just keep on working...even if it takes time.

My Only Respite

April 2, 2019

In a world of
Unexpressed views and pent up opinions
It is my only respite

In a place where
Fettered minds and shackled wills abound
It is my only respite

When the existing norms are
Bottled in feelings and concealed anger
It is my only respite

When the status quo is
Chained emotions and restricted
It is my only respite

When the pigeonholes are simply
Prevaricated visages and counterfeit miens
It is my only respite

When the constricted boxes allow
Eccentric subterfuges and fremd hoaxes
It is my only respite

Literally, it is not a weapon
Technically, it is not an ammunition
But it is still my only respite

It may not fit as an arm in an arsenal
But has the power to shatter decisions and peoples
It is my only respite

I may not display it on a diurnal basis
And let it slip through  my lips always
Yet it is still my only respite

It is just a way to cool down
Yet graces my lips with ease and indifference
It is my only respite

Summing up all my vocabulary
It is just a sigh:-)
It is my only respite!
