In an unknown land

disillusioned1

 

 

In an unknown land

I ,a stranger

Walked in

Eager

 

In an unknown land

I, a stranger

Believed

Cherished

 

In an unknown land

I, a stranger

Beguiled

Disillusioned

 

In an unknown land

I, a traveler

You, a passerby

Wiser

    Very contemplative. I can see a definite shift towards an exploration of your inner self. Well written and the short format gives it all the more incisiveness to the poem. Wishing you progress in your explorations.

    So powerful! Is that unknown land the inner self Smitha? Getting acquainted with self too is a journey that is taken only in the realms of solitude, self-discovery is enlightening. 🙂

      Thank you so much. When I re-look at the poem thinking of the inner self as ‘the unknown land,’ it transforms into a deeper meaning. This is when the reader provides another dimension and thereby adds more value to a writer’s words. Thank you!

    Nice to have you back, Madam with a refreshing new poem..!! Quite well explained the perplexity of a traveler delving into uncharted waters. Relatable as well. Well written, as usual, Madam.. 😊

      Thanks Abirbhav. It feels good to be back. Literally had to break through my cocoon to get this done. Thank you for your warm words. And so glad you were able to relate.

          I’m not sure if it was a comfort zone or just one that felt like a cage. But thank you so much for your encouraging comments.

            And yet, you broke it open, which is what matters. Cages can be golden, but that doesn’t make it less of a cage.
            I should say you are the one who is teaching here and inspiring us to break open our cocoons or cages or boundaries. Thank you Madam for sharing..!! 🙂
            by the way, I am awaiting your feedback on a recent post of mine, dealing with similar theme.. fingers crossed..

                Well, I don’t think I am qualified enough to “educate” you or anyone else. I just try to put forth my observations.
                Thank you immensely Madam for taking the time to read my posts. I am so happy that you could enjoy reading them.. Look forward to more such discussions with you and learn more from them.. 😊😊
