Abstract

Looking at my life, until now,
A new day begins, life goes on,
Trapped somehow, in my thoughts,
The next phase is, around the block.

Atleast for 2020, it’s been a roller coaster ride,
Wondering about my future, with all my mind,
The boundaries to my drawing, are ever forming,
A shape and color of choice, is my doing.

Whenever I look at my creation, I feel incomplete, Expressions mask the feelings but, not my artistry,
Pacing a snail, I am not a racing horse,
Being true to myself has, got me here now.

I feel so distracted, most of the times now,
I try but, cannot cope somehow,
I chose this life, I must sustain,
No reason to succumb to, my dark disdain.

Quarantine and me

Can we once, forget the pandemic,
Look at the situation and, think positive?

This quarantine, the first in my lifetime,
Taught me, the good in bad times.

Quarantined, as a precaution,
Stocked and ready, food as ammunition.

First few days, happy to be home,
Till home-work caught up, hoping I go phut.

Cautious at every step, food and drinks alike,
Decided to use this time, enjoying my life.

Never have I ever, cooked so much food,
Some old some new, experiments too.

Soon I stopped, fitting in my pants,
Started a home workout, lying on mats.

Now I feel, this is my new normal,
What’ll happen, when we experience renewal?

Everyone has felt, some damage within,
Repair it and remember, you are not alone in this.
