Wake-up Call

My much-loved surroundings

They strip me away from my dear ones

Make me go against my will,

This the basis I came into being?

Ah this isn’t any reason at all!

I must find it

Till I go back into slumber

They keep me pushing away from it

These forces are powerful

My willpower crumbles in front of them,

This isn’t justified

I’m not that futile,

I have to get up

This pill must ward off,

It’s still not late

I need to be awake,

Until I’m wrecked

Beyond repair…

    There is a voice of futility that runs throughout this poem, maybe it takes a flight to see beyond the maze. If only words were wings, or are they

      You got it right ESP. Maybe flying is the last option but then, wings are so delicate that at times they are wounded before their first flight!

        Agree, wings are as delicate as hopes, maybe because both are the same.
