Choosing to be the real me

Imprisoned is what I felt,
Chained and bonded within limits.
Limits that I didn't wish for,
But they said it's norms I got to follow.

I felt restless and stifled,
Never being let to express my thoughts.
I questioned what they said was the only right,
But they chose to brand me wrong.

I believed in being nonconformist,
Not to be to indifferent but to be true.
I began flaunting the unabashed me,
I knew they secretly liked that about me.

I continued to be called the deviant and digressive,
A misfit that they secretly always wanted to be.
They always spoke of me in hushed tone,
I knew they were just jealous for they could never be me.

Your Thoughts Are Valuable....

Awakening Of the Inner Self!

It was yet another Friday or billions of earthlings. May be it was a mundane day ahead for some and exciting for others. An exciting day ahead for the ones who were certain of the joy to be unwrapped the next day, the weekend. Well, in my case it was the former. Blame it on being one amongst the many who work on Saturdays.

Sweet Song of The Soul

The distance between us questions possibilities,
Two souls who connect yet shall stay detached,
Life running along parallel tracks that shall never meet,
Yet hope says they would someday be entwined.

UnInhibited feelings spoken, thoughts exchanged,
Unassuming how the world would read them,
Prejudices can't be fought, let free thoughts sail,
It's a battle less spoken, but I know many shall be fought.

Feelings expressed in words for many are view points,
Sometimes misunderstood, unacceptable for few.
Thoughts expressed are sometimes song of a bleeding heart,
These emotions maybe shunned by many as no art.

Questioned and unacceptable orphan thoughts,
Wish to die accepted, but denied and stay detest.
Don't let yourself be consumed by the opinions of others,
Your soul deserves a sweet song, let it be one about it's zest.

Words stringed together,
With more than a dash of emotion.

It all began with element of curiosity,
To unravel the unknown in each other.

Word for word were matched,
Unboxing the closet thoughts,
Like a flowing river, they exchanged thoughts unabashed.

Yet each held back some part of themselves,
It wasn't the end, but a beginning,
A beginning of a shadowed tale of mystic longing."
