Treasure Island

Sunny Chopra

(30th January / India)

Dilemma


Few of irritable nuances
which disturbingly appall

Have had lot of blaming,
am not so awful after all

I forever toed the line
despite how I did feel

Fending most oddities
for someone's ordeal

Viewpoint had to follow
was brusquely on me thrust

Presumed was my assent
regardless of disgust

Life own and me master
to plot and to contrive

Just for me to decipher,
and it's core gist derive

Valued are all opinions,
most stances and advice

Best if few refrained from
leaving me to own devise

Dictates no manuscript
stricture or even ordain

To get walked all over
even after due restrain

Beleaguered I am often
blamed for many a crime

With doings not personal
and faults none of mine

Introspected I‘ve aplenty
thus attempted being nice

Gambit always returned
with me paying the price

Took it upon personally
lest caused another pain

Endured losses in private
all contenders got to gain

Apathy one must adopt,
to whatever others think

Shouldn't matter slightest
if sail safe or were to sink

No empathy for irrelevant
ones branding me a fiend

Expelled they all stand
from my life quarantined

Poem of the Day

poet Emily Dickinson

70

"Arcturus" is his other name—
I'd rather call him "Star."
It's very mean of Science
To go and interfere!

I slew a worm the other day—
