Ode To Solitude - Poem by Shankaran Kutty

I find thee when my life is bound
In sorrow’s endless chain
When I stumble yet dare to plod
Along love’s thorny lane

Like thorns on a rose bush, your presence I find
In every sordid tale
You let the tears flow, yet them to stop
Each time you badly fail

Unwaveringly do I find you
In my sleepless night
When my life does aimless wander
Like a free, broken kite

By the river, under the sky
On the shores of the mighty sea
I lose myself in vacant thoughts
The presence, I feel of thee

What are you, a welcome break
In life’s frenetic pace
An unwanted guest, when you overstay
Who breeds mental malaise

But thank I must for joy I find
In this life without a care
I can sing or dance or simply brood
Or soak in the autumn air

No arm would ever wrap in comfort
Yet no arm to stop me as well
You are the key to a life of my own
Without a worry to dwell

You can only take away
The presence of a human face
But joy I find, in my journey
Through nature’s myriad ways

In your presence I do make
A happy, contended soul
Unstopped and free, I now can chase
My life’s private goal

Free of evil, free of vice
You put myself at ease
Together we shall then pursue
Life’s eternal peace
