Inside The Circle Poem by Anil Kumar Panda

Inside The Circle

Rating: 5.0

I live within a circle
Drawn by my forefathers
To keep me safe and vigilant

Sometimes strangers come
Try to pull me out giving
Assurances- false and enticing

Many a time I long
To fly away straight to
Unknown realms where
I may flourish and expand
By redrawing a greater circle

The distant mountains look so beautiful. I love your safe and vigilant first stanza. The second stanza is about false assurance and the third stanza is all about lofty dreams that travel on the wings of doubts and uncertainties! A thoughtful poem. POD! Many congratulations! !

Native Americans sometimes use a circle to describe the shared values of their community. At the same time, they consider it to be a dispensation bequeathed by a higher power. I wrote about this in my poem A NATIVE ELDER TOLD ME.

Your poem poses tantalizing questions. Can a circle be knowingly drawn by an individual, or must it be drawn by society's collective mind? You succeed in presenting deep concepts in straightforward language.

A very meaningful poem. Sometimes we intend to stay in the circle that has been handed to us and there are times that we try to modify it. Brilliant thoughts nicely presented. Top marks! !
