Indifferent

Like a strange second shadow unseen

There exist this tethered like accompany

I have no idea who I was meant to be

As I cried forthwith into this dying realm

Before my innocence was broken and molested

As I peregrinated along this humanistic trail

And at times- it seems like I alone resided

Inside my own kind of microcosm- staring out

Oft bewildered as to why some people chose

All those insensitive things they innately do

Then casually walk pass us broken, as if clueless

Oh! I do watch this life as I come to know it

Turn in slow motion; a realm controlled by

Far too many wielding upmost … unkindness

  1. Another brilliant poem! Captures the sad reality of human nature so wonderfully. Every time I read it, I get the essence of it differently, as it always happens to me when reading your works. 🙂 You are a genius! 🙏

    Oh, so well weaved together, Poet. Poignant and existential almost. 👏
