Divided we fall


Hi there. So it has taken me longer than usual to get the blog rolling this year. Starting the year with an old unpublished poem which fits the theme of unity :) Would absolutely love all feedback! So comment away.




A conjoined twin trying to escape another
Grunting in exertion and effort
As his flesh binds him to another
But not his spirit

A group of people deciding
What is best for themselves
And propagandising it as
What is best for those who they represent
And changing the contours of history
And geographical boundaries
By coercion and threat.

A group of disadvantaged people
Who are sick of the current system
And want to create their own system
To grow sick of.

The prince who abandoned his title
Subjects , wife and children
In the name of enlightenment.

Are all seceding. 
Physically
Politically and
Morally

But is anyone really succeeding?

  1. A very fine poem, and welcome Samyuktha. You pose a good question. I would suppose some are succeeding, especially nations that achieve their liberty after long being dominated by another one. It depends on your definition, desire, attitude. (At PU we ask for a new poem on Wednesdays, older ones on Sundays, so you know for next time.)

  7. Very interesting blog. A lot of blogs I see these days don't really provide anything that attract others, but I'm most definitely interested in this one. Just thought that I would post and let you know.

  8. I think we often find there is nowhere to go. Where ever we go, we find we are still here.
