Evanescence

 

Chasing a mirage called security

Seeking the stamp of approval

And permanence from society

We tie ourselves in knots

Chaining people with expectations

Worrying about what will be

Watching the present slip by

Into oblivion’s sea

We soak in the glory of

A fading past

Our effort is to drag

On to ensure we

Walk the trodden path

Till the very last

We delude ourselves

Into chasing stability

Knowing little life

is in fits and starts

It dances alive in the

Ephemeral and momentary

  1. you know , you should write the meaning toooo … because with the likes of me sometimes words just fly past :)

    lovely poem though …

  2. Absolutely right! heh! you have expressed it right
    “Seeking the stamp of approval
    And permanence from society
    We tie ourselves in knots”

    because of this, we forget to live our life and forget that its the only one we’ve got!
