Matrix - Poem by Hardeep Sabharwal


This year I met a guy
In the same old mirror
Who boasted of becoming
Imago from larva
Showing wings of flight
Same footpaths and same slippers
Just with a curious new smile
And a vision that took
All the old color patterns
Into a new dimension
Like a brush of magic
That can paint even dreams you know
Just then he saw
A grey-haired shadow
As if it were his clone
Walking ahead and ahead
But still in the same place
And suddenly the clone shadow
Became ubiquitous
And the grey overshadowed
The colors of dreams
He shouted, how can I
Become a part of this?
And the matrix of life smiled.
