The need to have them stay an arms length
who disown you most unpredictably
and whose unpredictability
strangely becomes predictable
and raises the call,
intense call for wriggling oneself from the
self created claustrophobic clasp.
Stand erect and tall
towering above those taller than you
weighing stronger than those heavier than you.
Oh,what a feeling of liberation
From those dry winds blowing scorchingly
from the most arid deserts around
Alternating with the frosty ones
from the unrelenting icy lands.
And here has been a fool who fails to do away
with the uninhabitable habitats,
for some stupid conditioning's sake.
Offering one's precious devotions to the
lifeless stones,mistakenly assumed to have
life and warmth and love...
may this being create a new avatar of herself
and find that all new being
be the snake woman shedding the
old skin and creating the new from within.
Shed in the process all glamorized image of her
own self too ...can she afford to be dishonest ?
