One more dawn and I am upright
Promise and hope I will feel alright
The anthology of grown up years in my mind
Hands full plethora of gadgets and lips engaged in futile conversations
As I move like a fast paced android to complete humdrum on time
I geared up engine to budge in the highest skyscraper of town
My favorite radio station today is playing “Summer of 69”

Ascending the escalator of highest edifice
I am here today once again to justify social requisite
Mocha in my hand brews high
I am addicted to relax my adrenaline for while
Fingers run on the keyboard back and forth
One more round of hollow meetings to attend
I pull myself together once again to defend

Glut of mindless assignments have piled
I am at my desk and then I close my eyes
I lay my back and took a deep sigh
Twirl in again to roll around
Lost in thoughts once again so profound
My mind ponders and heart interrogates
While they look for justification all around

Today the throb of heart just escalates
Restlessness in my veins accelerate
My heart does not justifies my action now
I don’t gel well anymore with these social mundane
Years of learning seems to be drain in vain
Seems everything today is shred down with rain
How much to take and how long to fake without any complain

I am vocal I have strength
By birth I am a pioneer to change the trends
I keep my words till end to assess the honesty at opposite end
It’s not easy to follow as I said around
At every stage imposters try to pull you down
The values doesn’t allow you to play mean games
Wisdom says that connote gratification doesn’t sustain!!!!

One of the most realistic and well written poem I read in a while.Every line is true to the core.

"It’s not easy to follow as I said around
At every stage imposters try to pull you down"

That line deserves a 5*.A nice read Manisha. :)
