A La 'Waiting For Godot' - Poem by indira babbellapati

Never is assigned
the role we need to play
life evaporates
in shadow boxing
with self-assigned
roles and goals
like in ill-tailored clothes
we go about as
characters in an absurd play
and wait for godot
in meaningless hope
and get blown up
in a whiff of smoke...
