The first poem I wrote on WordPress. 1 blogger liked it and I was thankful to him. I probably have come a long way since this first poem but it holds a special place in my heart…like all ‘firsts’ do. I hope you enjoy reading it.
Away from the maddening crowd,
Far from the traffic so loud,
Away from demanding relations,
Far from binding expectations,
Standing at the shore,
I had wanted nothing more,
Gazing ahead at the horizon,
I had the battle won,
The air was still,
I had broken all ties at will,
Peace though, still at a distance,
Engulfing me was a deafening silence,
Love, Friendship, Family I had lost
Freedom-my whole life had cost!
