Let’s Recreate Ourselves

Let’s Recreate Ourselves

Bland, colorless life,
Like these four walls;
Are we trapped now?

Like the butterfly,
Woos a plucked rose,
Are we holding on?
To a moment gone,
Forgetting that life,
Has gone ahead;

Let’s put moments
To paper and cry,
Let’s color our lives,
To find our wings
And again to fly;

We knew it once,
So now it is time;
Let us recreate,
Our life’s rhyme.

Poetry & writing are to me, a breath of fresh air in a life that is sometimes covered by the smoke of sorrow or self doubt. They also become the sweets I share to celebrate when life offers me a reason to. But most of all, they are to me, my life. For each word I write is a piece of my heart, a thought that just had to find its way into the world.

  1. Yeah, we need to do an intervention in our lives, and recreate. For ous sake, for the sake of the people we care about.
    This poem makes so much sense right now.

  2. Lovely pic. It really caught my eye. I admire people who can write poetry. You have a special skill. Your words “like a butterfly woos a plucked rose” are so deep, all life is like that I think. Something to think about.

  3. Beautifully written Vinay! If not us…Our subconscious holds on to those moments…
    Dreaming of the time that has passed and would never return,
    Forcing us to live in alternate reality which is born out of our desires,
    We curse time! That it passed soon…unnoticeable…
    and forget at times that, even in that very moment while having those thoughts, we are loosing time and need to rush to catch up with it by leaving our misery in past!
