Grounded Green Grass - Poem by Suraj Samtani

Bounded by chains,
Living amidst the rains.

Grounded by authority,
Yearning for purity.

Like seeking heat from ice,
Like quenching thirst with rice,

I remain eternally unsatiated, &
My damnation seems fated.

What brought me here,
I wonder.
What is it I fear,
I ponder.

Have I done evil,
For which I'm being punished?
Or was I just civil,
Whom the demons caressed?

I know not
What's happening, &
Whose plot
Is my life following?

O Nature please,
Come and rescue me.
I can't take this tease.
May His Mercy be on me.

I want to live again.
My freedom, I want to regain.

I'll then release these memories.
They'll leave me like leaves from trees.

I'll forgive the weather
For flowing hither and thither.

Like me, it left for a grass which was greener,
Unknownst that it was already much freer.
