Shifting Pain

Lofty dreams and heavy heart

all their laughter kept apart

women 'n men are chasing dreams

some like me are yet to start...



what I see are prison walls

master of puppets n walking dolls

war rooms, meeting rooms, IT hubs

priceless vases in empty halls..



caught in the darkness I fail to see

vision of a man, erect and free

centuries passed ‘n nothing changed

with me still wondering: 'to be or not to be'?
