A life ordinary


Out of the womb

First inhalation

The brain signals

It’s first motivation.

As I grew

So did the brain

So did my desires

On a fast lane.

Play school started

Influenced by friends

Wanted to do as they did

As that was the trend.

Stuck to books

As I was told

“They would make you something”

Was sternly told.

Study and then you would

Enjoy life and have a future bright

Any contradiction to this societal frame

Is viewed with diabolic spite.

From alpha to beta

From amoeba to Asia

Keeping in my mind that

Education is the panacea.

Innate desires and passions

Went up in a puff of smoke

The nervous system of my interests

Was ruptured in a single stroke.

Slogged night, slogged day

Slogged like the millions do

Some efforts bore fruit

Some were just too few.

The life changed so much

It’s a need vs want

The dreadful part here is

That success is the only font.

Slogging in and out

We’re a mere product

To solve some purpose

To be nothing but sucked.

Monetary value of passion

Only the cynics would guess

Not because it’s too meager

But ’cause passion is priceless.

Living the #life is passe

It’s about the survival

Darwin’s theory of the fit

Has gained a zealous revival.

The average mind here

Finds no place to grow

In the world full of chains

The seeds of complexes we sow.

The world salutes those

With grades and brands

No one relates to failure

The winner alone stands.

Conscious about the society

The laws and the conventions spun

What would others think about me

Is the seminal question.

What if we desire beyond

The continuous stock of pages

Something that our heart yearns for

Something our mind engages.

What if we conjure a life

Beyond the profits and the loss

Where I do what I wish

Where only I am the boss.

A life ordinary

About author- Udit Bhatia, an engineer and a sports lover and with a dogmatic personality, who likes to opine on things that matter to the common man. He enjoys reading books on philosophy and anthropology. The bundle of ideas that are revolving around his cerebrum and the desire to share it with people prompted him to delve into blogging five years ago and it has been, nothing less, than a surreal experience. Something that he would like to change in the world-  he want to eliminate the hypocritical mentality people have and want the world to be a neutral place where in people don’t have bias and preconceived notions on the basis of gender and social structure. He prefer substance over style. He is an aspiring manager and want to pursue management in order to augment his skills and have his own publishing house one day where he could publish books of the not so known writers.

What free spirit says- May your dream get all the wings Udit 🙂 Thanks for contributing this lovely poem. I hope you will keep trying and never stop putting your efforts to bring that change. Keep writing and #keepsmiling.
