Absurd - Poem by abhimanyu kumar.s

So will I live
Like a half lizard
I should live in
With a space of snake.

I must live because
I have come, not
As a man or a being
For all tell to live.

I live not because
I should live
I live only as
One day I have to leave.

Living not for my sake
Just living for I am alive.

    Its a lovely poem. I wonder though, it the symbolism of a snake and lizard are used in biblical or rather religious context or o historical? It is a very powerful allegory taht yopu have used and I like it very much and have a poem a little bit similar to yours in terms of the motif or theme of existence (Report) Reply

    I see hopelessness, indifference and hidden anger in this poem.livin and doin what u do coz livin is not your choice, but mothernature gave you a small spot that u can't change but accept.it's mind crackin.makes me think of world's imperfection and injustices.i like it (Report) Reply

    Absurd, yes!
    'Living not for my sake'?
    The ego finds
    'Just living for Iam alive'
    The soul finds
    Living for just living
    An empty life without aim
    A life finds
    Fear of dying by the minute
    The ego finds
    If only it will seek the soul
    Purpose will encounter
    Its entire life
    ------
    Did I solve a riddle here?
    Was that the meaning to your poem?
    My perspective. Your writing touches a critica point to all life in search beyond a material existence.
    Read my poems and enjoy. Rate and comment if you will at your time. Thanks (Report) Reply
