Today, I’ll be sharing with you a poem that I truly connect with. When I had written this poem, I’d just been fed up of all times that society and social order had prevented a good change. What am I talking about? Well, it’s the education system and people’s mindset regarding it, especially that of parents. I’d like to elaborate but that’s a post for another time.
I realized how some ideas are just too far to reach and develop. I also realized that even if we tried to change certain aspects of how the society functions, chances are we’ll disrupt the “system” and the result will be chaos.
In a world where most rules tie you down, where all actions are dictated by society and where going against the system is considered “unconventional”, how do you really leave your mark?
I honestly don’t know. But frustration is a form of inspiration. Here is the poem:
They warned me Stay away, don't go, I pay no heed I'm already out the door. I'm out of the room That I couldn't escape. Embarking on a journey In the light of day. I pace across fields Surroundings blur away Beauty becomes darkness As rainbows turn gray It's a wrinkle in time A spasm of my mind Sure of nothing but uncertainty, I'm too deaf and blind. I'm chasing stars Clawing at the unattainable Mind is a battleground A fort, unsustainable. Wheels are breaking System crashing apart No warnings, no threats An end is a new start. I see a room And its broken walls I hear their contempt, Ignore their screeching calls. I stand amidst debris Fragments on the ground It's a dystopian world Yet we're unbound.

This poem is also in response to this prompt at the dVerse. Today, we are redefining the word “room” through our poems! Do join in!
Do you have unattainable ideas, too?
What’s tying you down?
Have you ever felt irritated by the system?
Have you ever wanted to just leave things the way they are and wanted go live on an island, preferably the Maldives, in a beach house with a huge library? No? Maybe, I’m the only one.😅
Also, I made a separate blog for my art work so please take a look at it. It’s called Art Wheels. Tell me what you thought about it in the comments below!
