Life is about choices

Life is about choices we make
Reverberating reminiscence of regrets
Sliding down memory lane of past unfulfilled
Wrapped in cocoons of miseries unwelcome
From which no butterflies will ever emerge
Chosen to fly instead with new found wings

Imagination unbridled, mind uncluttered

Exploring new frontiers, make new friends
Carrying memories beautiful to fuel my flight

Cocoon of Comfort

Cocoon of comfort binds us
To our miseries
Entombing the butterflies
Killing our spirits
Alas! Behold the sky
We can’t fly

Let loose, break the shackles
Keeping us tied to the ground
Destined to soar
Destined to fly
We can’t be imprisoned
Crush this dungeon
That fear has built
All those who preaches freedom
Will like to keep us chained
To do their bidding and
Enhance their gains

Look around
What we have got to lose
One day all of us
Have to go
Till then
Hold our heads high
Stretch our arms, unite
Look up
Soar to the sky


The first stanza was written today as my comment to our fellow blogger, Kimberly Pitzrick’s poem “destroying innocence“.  I did not change any words to that comment but added two more stanzas. I had previously written a post about “Getting Out Of Our Comfort Zones

 

 

WISH

Wish I had the healing touch
With the power to heal
War torn miseries from this
World, like magic lifting the downtrodden
Wretched and tortured souls and deliver a
Wonderful, peaceful world for the people
With ample to share by one and all
Worry free and happy world
Where there would be no more poverty
Wanton mayhem and murders
Wickedness banished for ever
Woman,man and all races as equal partners
Will share and prosper together
Won't we be able to see a
World so beautiful that we all cherish
Willingly sacrifice to keep it nourished
World we will be proud to
Wander without fear of artificial borders
Where no checkpoints, walls and fences
Will keep us apart further
Wishing alone won't make this happen
Working together we stand a chance
