Fighting With Forces - Poem by Shreej k.c

What would you do?
if you were a tiny piece of iron
held equidistant from coequal magnets,
they neither embrace you nor repulse.
What would you do besides
rusting in the middle
magnetised yet stationary!

What would you do?
if you were the ocean
aligned between the sun and the moon,
they neither swallow nor leave you tranquil.
What would you do besides
stirring and whining like tides and wonder
why don't they name the storm after you!

What would you do?
if they choke you, singing your own virtue and strength,
cripple you eulogizing you own knowledge and acumens.
they lend shoulders but not to cry or carry your corpse.
What would you do besides
crying covertly, diagnosing and prescribing yourself placebo pills
though you see its not grief or glee, desolation or pampering that kills!

What would you do?
if the force within, both strong and weak
neither positive nor negative
neither holds you together nor rends you apart
What would you do besides
waiting for a miracle, a force beyond universe to act
or till you disintegrate finally, to shine with the stars!
