Troubles of My Life - Original Tragedy Poem
I consider this poem to be one of my best so far. It is more of a philosophical poem with a tragic, troubled touch and a punch in the face of the bad society and the greedy culture in which we exist. I believe that many persons, you too, will be able to relate yourself with this piece of poetry. This is a story of every person, who may have felt the same things, at some stage of his/her life. After reading the whole text, you will be able to decode the message hidden in the last 3 paragraphs.
Enjoy the poem, and leave your feedback and comments about what you liked about it.
I find it hard to walk and flee
It’s a crumbled barren land,
Sprayed like a carpet
Underneath my feet.
I find it hard to cross
The chutes are too narrow to
Paddle up the river and
The precipice is too steep
To just gallop onto it
The far away land is too serene
To close my eyes for it,
In quest for a better land,
I spent a year searching;
When finished digging a vacant grave,
Didn’t find it fascinating.
Never got satisfied with the trades and norms
Always found myself fighting against the dust-storm
Who does this arid and fruitless earth favor?
Is it only me who does not belong here?
Will I also have to reform into a creepy worm?
To be this dead society’s heir?
