An Emotional Purgation…
Dr. Smrutisikta Mishra
Department of English,
National Institute of Technology Puducherry,
The sand of time is fleeting fast;
Bringing a metamorphosis of role to cast,
Castaway, shipwrecked leaf in life’s last;
Is craving relentlessly, to conceal life’s traumatic and nightmarish past.
Remorse and penitence of evil deeds;
Landed me an alien among own kith and creed,
Restlessly I crave for the oblivious childish identity…
Serene, sublime and full of sanctity.
Kaleidoscopic memories of a tranquil past;
Tears my hearts into multifarious parts,
Myth is an anecdote of rebirth and reformatted soul,
“Thou return to dust” is life’s ultimate goal.
Aghast, tormented and haunted by conscience;
Shockingly I question my self-disguise,
Why this Pretention, delirium and simulation to please the selfish, avarice fake world?
All that glitters are not gold!
Every day is a new beginning and assimilation;
I am “ME”, “Myself” and proclaim a caution!
Stop! Stop ‘Oh’ World making me a victim of Social castration,
I have undergone Spiritual and Emotional Purgation…
