A Paradigm Shift - Poem by Dr subhendu kar

My captive will knackered so long within
Exasperates me while making a new breath
yet baited overwhelmingly to my stance eclectic
as when stepping in to my time overpowering.

My secret search of dream in the corridor of quest
quite unknown and undeciphered yet undefined
to my whole being, being wishful to reason unknown
while putting me into the random strokes undeterred.

A gesture unwholesome as I do feel imbecile
Under the follies of someone’s fear or favor fretful
For a breakthrough to find a way out of helplessness
Like thrilled fiction reading impassioned and unveiled.

Let the surging caravan loosely spread uncared
Be well tamed and couched to their need primed
Cutting down all the smooching songs of life imposed upon
Be sung reveling all my impulses being hurriedly streaming

    'paradigm shift' as a phrase is very much becoming a cliche
    this poem placed it back into its depth

    To write in Peter Beagle's wordings

    'Heroes know that things must happen
    When it is time for them to happen.
    A quest may not simply be abandoned;
    Unicorns may go unrescued for a long time,
    But not forever;
    A happy ending cannot come
    In the middle of the story.”

    A shift is a must
    You may call it 'A Paradigm Shift'
    In fulfilling a quest.

    Very nice one. Enjoyed.

    Such a masterful use of language, entwining imagery w/ rhetoric and producing a fine tapestry of mood.
    Great work.

    I too am addicted to the eclectic sensuality abounding in all domains! We were born in the same year - though worlds apart, so close at heart, poets rule!
