One’s mind is the only place where one is actually free . Experiences. Feelings . Moments. They mould our thoughts and hence we sail amongst the tides of what we believe may happen . We fly, even without wings. We take flight with our imagination.Having a good imagination always helps see things differently.It has the power to create something beautiful out of what the mundane consider useless.
Brilliant billion pennies thrown,
They dance on porcelain floors; And as they twinkle and turn,
Not one complains or moans.
Silent to their insult, stoic poses,
Knowing time shall play to their advantage;
For in time of little and in dearth,
All shall know the penny’s worth.
And then its rightful place shall the penny regain,
Jingling in pockets, safe in a purse.
TO STAND IN MY OWN
I chose not to rhyme, but inadvertently do,
To please no one, more than I care too.
I shall not bend to the slight of your grin,
The snigger in your voice, the demons within
I care not what you write, I care not for opinions,
They sway in the wind of change like dandelions.
And do not perceive my heart, soft and defenseless,
I suffocate in the walls I have built, tall and endless.
Nor shall your untruths tarnish my soul,
I must stand in the integrity of my own.
If to fight for truth is to stand alone,
I shall die within myself, to the world unknown.
