A walk

As I walk
Dragging all the expectations
chained to me
Making noises and miserable screams
With all the strength I can conjure
The destination seems farther by the day
With every step I take
I am a little too further away

As I walk
I see some crazy scenes
I got drunk to the brink
drowned in the blood of my sins
I have made mistakes alot
But I can always go back to the start
Lest, I look back dragging these expectations
to an involuntary laugh

As I walk
With the marks of these chains
painted on my heart
I proudly look at the sun
I take a step forward
thought I could run
But the ground has taken a U turn
Taking me back to the place it had begun

As I walk
Leaving blood stains drying
I was not wounded,
but I was blind
Crashing with air in my way
Fighting the demons in my head
Losing my grip over my mind
These expectations I will leave them behind

As I walk
Freeing myself of time
Singing unchained melody of life
I have just whistled all the dreams away
Dragged expectations till they frayed
No success for tomorrow to stay
No countenance of love for my grace
I was in my head since the first step I take

  1. Beautiful rhythm. Solitary walks are perfect for introspective reflection and wrangling inner turmoil.

  2. Another interesting piece Novice and a lot of brooding ruminations there.

    P.s. No one’s been replying to my emails :/
