To Be or Not to Be

It wasn’t meant to be. Fake.

When All’s Well

They waited for her.
Spears at the ready,
Gun power warming up,
She was their sole guide.
It was now or never
They had to fight today
To secure their future
She began to speak
They listened. She paused,
And looked afar

“Cut!” says the director.

Of Flowers

For ages now, cinema and advertising have given us flowers. But we never wanted flowers. We crave the freedom and luxury in simple joys.

A Sight to Remember

Through the open window,
She saw the shepherd boy
Honouring his sheep-duty
Herding them to safety

***

Through the open window,
She saw the clergyman
Off to church with pride
With purpose in every stride

***

Through the open window,
She saw husbands chatter
Bidding their daily farewell
To wives who’d await arrival

***

Through the open window,
She saw smiling kids
Wandering off to school
Moaning it’s not so cool

***

Within the open window,
She saw her reflection
Chained to prison walls
Awaiting her final calls.
