Josey Tom Poems
Individual Vs Society
I wanted to read But they expected me to plead I wanted to fly But they clipped my wings
It was a Notebook... Neatly bound, crisp and antiseptic Parents took him to the Church The nuns kissed him and the priests blessed him
Mind stops talking Body ceases to move Eyes flirt furtively with the roof Ears chooses to sleep
We sell flowers But our lives are devoid of fragrance We sell delicious food Still we lead tasteless lives
Plea To My Mind
Sometimes my mind wonder... Where to wander? Should I walk back to my past? Which is very vast
It was a Notebook...
Neatly bound, crisp and antiseptic
Parents took him to the Church
The nuns kissed him and the priests blessed him
Then, the Notebook was taken to the School.
The Science teacher ignored it,
The English teacher drew a star and a smiley on it
But the Mathematics teacher threw it in the Dustbin;
the Dustbin of Fools.
