Life In The Retro Mode

Poem by Ratri Mandal

Here's every one, people engrossed too deeply in technologies
I too make use of that, but feel like I'm living
In the previous century
I guess I've fallen back in time, beyond centuries
I try to come back to the now of time
But keep floating behind,
Like I'm living in the past, so behind everything

I'm living in the retro mode of life
Going fast but feeling slow
But amidst these new trends
Old feels so new
I love to view everything in sepia hues
To see the golden old in the world of new

My surroundings are colorful and bright
But I see the elegance in that black & white
Gray scale is my style of life
The vintage effect is perfectly alright
And take it all and put them in pretty Polaroids

Every thing old is so precious, so artsy
Each has become a classic in its own way
Like a beautifully written poetry
But still has an element of mystery

Maybe for this reason or something else
I cling to the old
When everything was gracefully dignified but also had a hint of bold

This road looks old, but is pleasant to walk on
It has its own charm, and will never get deserted

I may exist in the present, but live my life in the retro mode
