Epiphany - Poem by Shreej k.c
I asked her-
Is there any place in this earth
where you can stay out of sphere
yet no one claims you to be hiding
where you can enjoy plentiful self
yet no one blames you of forbidding
where you get to see your beloveds often
yet their melancholia fails to oblige
where you can still high five your friends
without hearing their advices besiege
where you can peer the sun rise and set
expend as long as it costs to rise again.
The genius replied- 'prison'
Well the idea fascinated me for a while
but then could I steal, kill or act vile
and then it reminded me of
O.Henry's 'Cop and anthem'
Poor Soapy, I could never fathom
why he lingered by the church
I wish he never heard the anthem
or gained the epiphany.
