Daydreaming


Why are my dreams so dull
There are ghosts searching for
Corpses in the holes aplenty
In the walls smothered with bullets;
Why I can’t face the mornings
The papers holler about people
Going wrong and chewing
Raw meat of tender girls;
Why is this storm brewing
In my cup of morning tea
When my eyes fall on the butchered
Body of a young lover fighting
Enemy in the land unknown;
Or I am mistaken;
My grey hair has not kept pace
With the sun that simmers harsher
In each passing day reminding
Me of my being immature;
Thanks world
I won’t take you into my heart.

    For the graying generation, it is so hard to assimilate the changes taking place around us and remain placid over the stories of butchery of human lives without a storm being raised in our morning tea cup! ! This world cannot be taken into heart! ! Powerful write! ! (Report) Reply
