[NaPoWriMo Poetry- 3] “If I can, I will”

If I can escape this morbidity of mind,

I will flee to the mountains of creativity,

drench under the shower of zest,

till salvation can find.


If I can surrender from this race,

I will catch my breathe of life,

spectate and not partake,

end the fear of failure, that I face.


If I can retrieve the cost of my unsleeping,

I will buy some health and vigour,

coalesce my spirit and soul,

write an epilogue to this sense of dying.


If I can learn the truth out of sycophancy,

I will flatter my ethics with honesty,

reward my flaws with amendment,

live humble and renounce the fake and fancy.


If I can  rise above this corporate politics,

I will establish my democracy of real beings,

a company of true companions,

not act and speak, that my principle contradicts.


Ting! a message popped on the screen,

‘your salary has been credited’ ,

The ringmaster has tamed the lion again.

The rebellion of conscience has been suppressed.

Freedom defeated.


About National Poetry Writing Month : #NaPoWriMo is a creative writing project held annually in April in which participants attempt to write a poem each day for one month.
