From Within: A Parable

The sense lies in us,
Aren't we all aware?
All around there is a fuss;
Here I come, beware!

Where is the dearth?
Have we forsaken our very soul?
The quest goes on for a ‘justified’ birth;
Hence, uplift ourselves to reach the goal.

The answer lies in our very existence,
Quite intricate to unravel;
Let’s undo whatever is tense,
And entrust our acumen to marvel.

  13. Thank you for sharing - I like the change of pace across the stanzas. You are mixing meter while pretty much maintaining ABAB throughout. I look forward to reading more :)

  14. Love this. My favorite: "have we forsaken our very soul?" Sometimes I wonder if some people (especially politicians nowadays) have done that. You know?
