Treasure Island

Sunny Chopra

(30th January / India)

Atypical Persona


Get branded as an oddity
to edicts I don't conform

Mundane most practices
in routine I can't perform

Cosseted in nothingness
bonds me with innate core

Drifting in surreal abyss
not since explored before

Often get sneered upon
for choices past made

Some fueled by passion
few had ominous shade

It's about perceptions
for right deemed wrong

Most may or never learn
as who I were all along

What seen is illusion
from reality far apart

I am sort of a paradigm
resolutely living my part

In moments of reflections
from all I stand removed

Some see me just vegetating
but light years I've moved

Poem of the Day

poet Helen Hunt Jackson

The month of carnival of all the year,
When Nature lets the wild earth go its way,
And spend whole seasons on a single day.
The spring-time holds her white and purple dear;
