Concealed within woven layers of self doubt, a beautiful and intricate tapestry of the soul, yearns to unwind and reach those places where no awl could fathom it’s miseries or mysteries about itself. Oh let my soul unwind, cocoon me in its warm abstract glow and bridge gaps between the known and the unknown.
Black and white people with red and blue hearts, pink and orange in mind, picture a sunrise here and a sunset there. And yet others, with violet and golden in their eyes capture a moonlit desert.
Dried streaks of black and white on this canvas of mine Splash it with colors when it’s moist and gray Add some yellow to its blues And redness to its pale face Plant fresh greens in its old brown embrace.
I stare at the key; key to the caged me, which yearns to explore the blue yonder where it is meant to be Magnificent it is; a constant reminder of my triviality, passes down a look of pity with its nuances of artistry An easily forgivable treachery.
But oh the key lies there, far away from my reach and I’ll have to break free For how can something which is not a part of me; which is foreign to me have the power to stop me?
The cage now a battlefield tests the capacity of a soul fueled with perseverance and quest for knowledge Alas! it could not hold in my shooting aspirations anymore.
And thus, I broke free of the coldness in the confinement A warm flurry of wind beneath my wings to revive the curiosity to revive those dreams…
Off I reached straight for the sky Yes! this is what freedom feels like. When I can explore; When I can experience; When I can interact to discover myself and correct my course I am free…
