Poem title – A Simple Indian boy

I walked past the door that used to greet me one day …

I walked past the faces that used to smile at me one day …

I walked past the bloody world …

Which tried to make me ‘civilized’ one day …

 

Do you understand what it means, what it means …

To study what my father wanted me to

Do you understand how it pains, how it pains …

To see someone else live a life that I wanted to

Do you understand what it takes, what it takes …

To believe the truth that society wants me to

 

I want to scream …

That yes I am a failure

I want to scream …

That yes I am just another brick in the wall

I want to scream

That yes I failed, I failed to live the dreams of this society …

 

The dreams of which were hammered into my brain by my parents …

My eyes tied dark with advice by my relatives …

My mouth sealed with a career graph by my teachers  …

My hands tied back with pressure by my friends …

While my legs, drowned in the sea of unknown that I created for myself …

 

Because it is better to be lost in my own darkness

Than be blinded by the light you shed …
