"Be Yourself"


A closed box
Stifled breaths
Grabbing holds
A very restless mind...

Lock it someday
Drop it from the highest peak.

You were once a swimmer newborn
dive deep in the soothing turquoise,
Quench the child in you
blow the dandelion,
Immerse in the melody of nature
stomp on the fall-leaves,
Move the inflexible do the difficult
dance on your favorite tune,
Throw away the glooms
dress up in Saffron-Orange,
Let the Earth be your piano
wear the symphony of anklets,
Dry the tears in your eyes
Adorn them with the deep of kohl.

...Yes, for once "Be Yourself"
Today, let the mask drop
let the truth reign
let the soul be free!


This poem is written for the Poets on the Page's first prompt-January 2016. It was to explore yourself, un-become what you are not, drop everything that isn't you and embrace the real you.

    1. I totally agree Bikramjit. Circumstances may or may not let the mask fall. It needs lot of courage too but imagine a world where we all can be ourselves, positive 'us'.

      Thanks for the visit and comment.
