The Wandering Gypsy Poem by Freespirit Juneja

The Wandering Gypsy

Rating: 4.5

The Wandering Gypsy

Looking at the prop roots of Banyan
Immense hold of its territory
Felt like a kicked can
No permanent place to stay
No place to keep as confined identity
I feel myself like the wandering gypsy

Run daily to a new direction
Learn life's truths
Keep false notions as fictions
No place to hold myself
My Life has turned topsy turvy
I only feel myself as the wandering gypsy

Everyday, a new place to be explored
a new commitments to be laid
a new religion to be imbibed
Failing which I've no place to hide
Thrown away like a Frisbee
I'm no less than the wandering gypsy

Life's fashion reached standstill
Luggage bag can't hold the cloth hill
My loved ones shoved away
Communication died on the way
Jumping like an obedient monkey
I feel myself as the wandering gypsy

Unaware of my final destination
Life turned into a unique animation
Cry to god to curtail this journey
Transform me to a settled man
Seems I'm burning my skin
Rather getting tanned
As it's just the beginning of the long journey
Need to run for long as the wandering gypsy

welll it's not complement but i'm speechless this poem is very expressive, it anouces the inner of the poet as aimless or lost in the road where no guide is there to follow and reach his goal, this reminds me of a novel i read entiteled the sun also rises by Earnest hemingway in which the major theme is LOSS refering to the Lost Generation, and i like most the metaphores used such as the wandering gypsy and others, this concerning to component, on the other hand, i want to comment on the form which is free versed poem but it contains certain regularity and musical devices and that's what i liked most cause i felt as if reading a lyrical poem. thank you for messaging me. hope you keep me up dated with your news and i hpe also that you have a look at my poems
