Paradigm Shift Poem by Alok Mishra

 

Paradigm Shift

I see there; I see the light
evoking my steps
which are caught, tied and
stopped
by none but myself.

I see there; I see the light
urging my soul
to free itself. But with scars
of the fresh wounds on my body,
it cannot travel.

I see there; I see the light
pleading my ‘mind’
which is at peace with war, almost
in an ineffable way
and I seldom move.

I see there; I see the light
but
I love the darkness more
than I dread the light!

 

To us – to humanity – to insanity – to the perversion – to the lingering subversion – CHEERS!
