Fettered and free

Nervously I set out
To grab life by its horns
Changes that I envision
Are not without thorns
Puzzling, the actions seem
But that is just the way
Fearful, I admittedly am
Decisions, nothing shall sway
Lumped up life, I led
Unwavering the right course
Throwing caution to the winds
Freeing the shackles, I endorse.

Move on

Dead as doornail, my spirits are
Hunger for life, nonexistent by far
Threatening to stagnate, my days,
Unless mend, I did, my ways.
Blemished, as a consequence of past
Lopsided life was getting too fast
A commemorative to be erected
“Her life sapped, now corrected”

Spat with summer

The sun shines bright,
I am gray within
The breezy world beckons
My legs immovable lead
The cheery chirping
While I wallow in quiet
The joyous awakening
I choose to give a miss
I wait in patient gloom
For the apathetic autumn  
Mirroring my own ennui
Preview to the forbidden frost.

"I had a lover's quarrel with the world."
- The epitaph on Robert Frost's grave.

Green elephant

There’s an elephant in the room.
And it can’t be seen
No matter how much you zoom
He is beyond the screen
There are squirrels in the nook
Rainbow birds kissing
But however hard you look
The elephant is missing
In the jungle thick and dense
The trees have been
Veiling. If you look in the distance
This elephant is green
