Amidst the shadows

Posted by Shreyans Jain Thursday, 20 September 2012 0 comments
When the sunshine wane to the west, in the horizon devoid of heat,
Against the canvas of crisp blue sky, float memories both bitter and sweet;
Of a floundering vagabond whose desires are dead and faith in destiny is flagging,

Who is befuddled with his existence, meagrely sustaining his life by begging;

Attired in rags, he embarks on his journey cursing destiny for his plight,

Bursting into a plaintive song, he tries to abate his misery, sorrow and spite;

Drifting aimlessly amidst the shadows, searching wildly for his destination,

He tries to revel in his mundane activities, devoid of any taste or temptation;

Squabbling over pennies, he is only abhorred and rebuked everyday alike,

Seized with terror, he mourns his life which he feels is adorned with spikes;

Feeling isolated and orphaned, he shudders to think or act unconventionally,

All that he yearns is to be loved, looked after and treated compassionately;

For a society gurgling with malice, he is only a blot, a burden, a social parasite,

That squanders the resources in scams and scandals and calls itself erudite;

But did he ever try to grasp the opportunities to emanate out of this situation?

Nay, calling it a comeuppance he melted amidst shadows of this diverse nation.
