These four inch thick walls
Gag my mouth shut
Speaking is prohibited, beware
No humming a tune here
These closed windowpanes
Throw a curfew always
Over a city named Fantasy
No smiling a pretty pout dear
These icy iron curtains
Chain my feet. Who cares?
Feelingís on a house arrest
Heartís just a beating organ
Music of miseries begins

House arrest

Being Indian (from India) I to often feel that I'm on house arrest. So much is expected of me but i question whether its for my good or my parents social status. Your poem spoke to me. Nice job.

That's very well put~~~!!

You must have been in a terible state of mind when you wrote this. I could sense your irritation and the deeply buried strength to break the walls. You could do it for sure. Go ahead, let us also hear something cheerful from you.Nice work. Keep going!!

I'm not a full-time pessimist ...

There's a sort of pessimism in my writings but I make sure I find a cure for it. Life's a series of all this, right ?

Most definately..

Eveything is part of the life's jouney. The good with the bad. Pessimist nah, realist, observer, poet. ah yes
