Solitude - Poem by Lalitha Narayanan
Driven to the wall
Now I face life ball
it is rolling and rolling
without any meaning
When I started my travel
heaps of dreams and hopes lay unravelled
now I see life face to face
and every new person adds my disgrace
When I was a tiny girl
I saw with big big Alice eyes
the beauty of moon and the lion in a man
now I see moon is just a reflection
and man is but an animal incarnation.
When I was a growing girl
I learnt Gandhi and Tagore hearts
now I see that strewn across
are filthy raping counterparts
strutting in camouflaged priestly arts.
The more you go closer to mortals
the more you know that every heart is fatal
every brain is tricky and every mind is filthy
now who am I? but one among the multitude sickly
Driven to this truth
I am madly running a marathon path
they cheer me up, but I am a chasing Psychopath
I loose my game, I give up my poetic stride
my faith is fluttering, my image is muttering
why mocking seconds magnify zoomed
they seemed to question my very uttering....
