unbound spirit….


From inside my gloomy house,

Through the window I look out,

I see the birds chirping,

With jollity in their eyes, they are flying,

Dipped in remorse, I wonder,

To my desires, I surrender,

What it is to fly,

To relish the touch of perpetual sky,

Caged by fear of dying,

Passion inside me is crying,

Enough of the contrition,

Why live in a prison,

The mortal body will surely die,

Eternal soul will wander alive,

Jumped into the infinity,

Flew with the birds against gravity,

Within a moment, the body was on the ground,

It looked at the sky, the spirit  unbound..

    Another amazing write, Shreyans. This write was really, really dark I must say. But I think you expressed our deepest, darkest and most morbid thoughts so succinctly. Loved the setting – character stuck inside a place and longing to be something else, like that bird outside. This is certainly impossible, and sometimes when we go too far over the edge we may face our worst nightmares. But sometimes if we do face the impossible with a never give up attitude, we see the light and feel like a brand new person.

      Yes…you described it perfectly..added more value to my post…thank you for reading..

      And it is the impossible what we always crave for..isn’t it?

      1. Mabel Kwong says:

        It is always impossible when it comes to cravings and desire. We will desire what our heart will desire, and it is with the same heart that we have to learn how to control these feelings.

        1. shreyans says:

          Yes exactly…but we are all humans after all…we crave and then we control..

          1. Mabel Kwong says:

            You are right. We are human. Sometimes it can be hard to control our emotions.

    I like this poem. Its something that a person diagnosed with cancer would write. Or someone that lost a parent, or had no one else to turn to for help; would write. I definitely been where this person in the poem has been.
    Thanks for sharing.

    1. shreyans says:

      Thank you for reading…i am not that person…but i can feel and sense that…but the description you gave was correct..

      1. Vinny Idol says:

    Very deep thinking behind the words. We are mortal, need to find the meaning of life. Flying? Gliding would give you a feel of it. Nice poem. 🙂

    1. shreyans says:

      Thank you for appreciating..glad you liked it…gliding is bounded…flying is free…a little difference..
      Thanks again..
