Nothing…

 
 
I woke up,
And walked away,
Ignoring,
The body,
As it was moribund,
Lately,
The body was behaving,
Like a sluggard,
Dragging itself,
As if it was,
under lots of pressure,
to fulfill the dreams,
to stop the heart’s screams,
to live before dying,
But,
As I saw it,
Resting under the mud,
I felt weightless,
Fearless,
The union with the body,
Over the years,
Killed me,
And as it was dead,
I became alive,
I, the soul of everything,
Nothing…

    Another lovely, in-depth and reflective poem from you, Shreyans. When we’re going after our dreams, often we feel two different kinds of emotions as you pointed out: nothing because we feel like we will not achieve anything but at the same time also a feeling of freedom when we try. I see you tagged this post ‘learning’. We certainly learn with each passing moment, be it an important lesson or learn where we want to go.

    What a thought provoking piece! We tend to carry our dreams like a burden when only they should be setting us free. I think it’s all in the head. Love how the poem ends with the resurrection of soul. Great work!
