A Poem

Today, instead of the usual posts, I shall share with you a poem:

Freedom’s Birth to Bondage

A noisy celebrated birth

Freedom is bound to birth

 

From being the Infinite Being

Pushed to living moments leased

 

In a soft warm cage

Hey Timeless begins to age

 

Wrenched into another new world

He protests, newly acquired senses in a swirl

 

Few years down the lane as She learns our ways

One evening in the grove, a fleeting memory invades

 

Whence forth it came?

what was it? We forget

 

We sought and desired the object of peace

He laughed and called us *Kasturi!

 

Questions, faith and Reasoning

Spirituality becomes life’s seasoning

 

As the lease shortens moments of panic lengthen

Do we crave to break the cage?

Will we embrace the sanatan way?

 

I learn, We try, and then?

Then I apostrophize

 

Consume them away! mind ego and their restraints

Show me myself, let me embrace my eternal Self

 

But time has not come

Lessons not yet learnt

 

I pray that I may crave

For freedom lost that day

 

*Kasturi – Musk deer
