Beginning

Having finished to curve out

a better human by his hand

Almighty said to me,

" My son, use the mind,

hands, feet, legs, heart ..

I 've given to you, with all

freedom and make the best

use of these , now go to the

world and live your life with

all happiness and full of mirth

good bye, meet you afterlife".

Journey

Happily I commenced

the journey to the world

In the beginning

all was fine and

smooth, and I acted

as was ordained

guys were happy

to see my actions

They all laughed

when I laughed

and took care of me

in every possible way


Turning Point

but after a passage

of a few years

everything changed

me and the world

an elaborate surgery

was conducted by the world

another mind was implanted

on the old mind

another pair of legs was given

to go places

got a pair of eyes

akin to the previous one

now another heart throbbed

upon the heart

I had received from the Lord

I was really amused

why this was done

I looked around in the world

and saw guys living

they were all given new organs

they ignored the mind

which lay beneath

they were happy

to use the new mind

they moved with the new set of legs

they loved one another by new hearts

Seeing all this, I follwed everything

as other guys used to do

it continued for years


No more in chains

but one day I revolted

I dismantled the fake organs

I got in the world

and threw away

all of the nasty scrap

into the ocean

now I was using the old gifts

I got from the Lord

guys looked at me

with surprise and rage

Wondered why I moved

with that set of legs

Why I looked around

with that pair of eyes

why I thought about

things and guys

with that sort of mind

and how the hell

I made love

with that gifted heart

while I celebrated

my freedom

with all happiness and gusto

the guys in the world mocked

and called me insane

behind my back

      So many times people forget what God has given them and they try to conform with the world. A great message Hari. I love the picture of the palm tree...

      What a great poem, Harish. A good message that we should be happy with what God gives us and make the best use of what we have rather than try to be like and please others. Good job.

      Venkatachari M , you have commented so appropriately here. Yes, in this mad rush of reaching somewhere, we 've lost the beautiful simple track of living. Our life has become so complicated that we've hardly any time left for relishing day to day happenings around us. I wanted to say it all, but there is no other better way than to saying it through poetry. Thanks for visiting this hub and presnting such kind comments.

      A wonderful poem, Harish. It's a good take on the people and their artificial lifestyles. Enjoyed it very much. Your reply to Vasantha is also a great explanation of the theme of this poem.

      Vasantha, a stray thought arose in me about folk songs.You know all folk songs are so simple. Did those guys need a dictionery to coin a song. No, all they needed was their day to day routine talk ; yet they were able to churn out the soulful songs. This prose poem is a kind of dedication to those very affable guys. Thanks for your kind visit and presenting your view about this hub.
