#12.The Man Who Sold The World

In the park, around the corner

Where the trees in all subtleness

Gave life to my deep desires

 

Beneath my utter pallor

There lay a lost soul

With love on his platter

 

The world cared not for him

His beliefs were just reveries

Trust was to be beckoned

 

His sobriquets lost forever

An unknown amongst men

With a meaningless existence

 

All his goodness coveted

By the scums of this planet

To whom he shrugs with wonder

 

Fragments of love afloat

To the mastermind’s society

Longing to be buried with wise

 

To an ethereal home

Belonging to the graceful one

Nothing like earthly paradise

 

Information:

‘The Man Who Sold The World’ is a poem which really required subtle thought and intuition. It speaks the truth which hides in each and every one of us. It took me sometime to put it into words, but this is the result in the end.

The first-person start is bringing you closer to the protagonist who is a common person. A person struggling and enjoying life and its by products. He is having a rendezvous with himself on this occasion recalling the world and its entities. He believes that this world is suffering and that the ‘wise’ by which he refers to people with gratitude, love and affection are all gone.

He has absolutely no solution and appears to be lost. He wishes to go far away and exist in peace somewhere he can actually very happily call home.

This topic is something to think about!

Make this world a better place! 🙂

#7.Happiness Is Real

You are given one chance
Make it blue and bright
Sing along with the ocean
Give back to mother nature

Life is a roller coaster ride
Jump on it and ride forever
Love like there is no end
Cheer up during sadness

Emotions are just droplets of ink
They dry up in no time
Learn from your life right now
Friends are the pillars of life

Make life beautiful like butterflies
Cities weren’t built in days
Trust in yourself and others
Believe in the stars above you

 

Information: 

This poem was written rather quickly. I am experiencing plethora of emotions right now due to various personal reasons and I think that life should be nothing but happiness. You are given life by God and you choose how it going to be. 

The protagonist could arguably be me. He is devastated by life. He is ‘in the middle of the ride’. Nothing is fixed; nor is anything temporary. Society thinks it is advancing everyday but he knows that it is a lie. People are not humans anymore. This annoys the protagonist and he resorts to believe in his own life. 

The poem was inspired by the wonderful music of Owl City. Adam Young’s music is the ultimate cheer up music.

#5.Star-gazer

I stood at a distance

Eerily, I gazed

Into oblivion in search

Of unmistakable beauty

 

Ocean blues and sterling days

Guide us to be the ones

Exemplify our hearts

We were meant to be

 

I stared into her soul

Vestiges of love built up

Our hearts were intertwined

I could never let go

 

Our voices echo past worlds

The universe deems our love

To be one beyond wonder

As life simply passes by

 

Information:

‘Star-gazer’ is a love poem which has been mildly inspired by music. This poem is based on a dream of mine.

The protagonist is a teenager on the verge of adulthood and is lost in the sea of life. He is a hapless romantic in love with his best friend. He is a mysterious soul who is timid towards the idea passion and love.

His only hope is for the marvellous universe to help him compose this relationship. Mother Nature needs to destroy this confusion built up inside him and show him that she is the one.

#4.Words

Words are only words. 

They say that the pen is mightier than the sword. 
They believe that words have changed destinies. 
They agree that words have settled the many. 
They resolve that the written holds superior. 

A word can hold for a long time. 
It can root itself deep into the grounds of your reveries. 
The amazing mind never forgets it. 
It remains latent. 

Words can hurt and can flatter. 
Their bane existence is questioned. 
A life with no words is a life with no meaning. 
The confusion prevailing would disrupt society for we know. 

History has been witness to the rise and fall. 
For which words were held merely responsible. 
Opinions have varied and have changed. 
But, the words… they remain the same.

 

Information:

‘Words’ is a universal truth. 

The idea behind the poem is very vague to me but a conversation with a friend fueled it. The blatant idea is that words cannot be taken back. This free-verse was written very openly by me and very quickly. I hope you enjoy!
