Cages, Bars And Empty Hearts

By Meher Gandhi

Cages, bars and empty hearts,
Where is the air I used to breathe?
The fragrant, sweet and guilt- free?
Air which apprised me to live and be?

Cages, bars and empty hearts,
Where is the music I listened to?
The pleasant to hear, the lyrics to feel?
Music which made me free?

Cages, bars and empty hearts,
Where is the flower I used to water,
The flower which made me glee?
The one within me?

Cages, bars and empty hearts,
Where is the fire that reignited everyday,
Light, hope and passion for every art?
The fire that burnt bright all the way?

Cages, bars and empty hearts,
I am not a soul to be held in captive for long,
For you do no good within me;
It might not be long before you’re gone.

Cages, bars and empty hearts,
I am your only creator at sight.
I better paint your walls bright,
It’s been hard to look at grey all the time.

Cages, bars and empty hearts,
This resident of yours has one more to ask,
For every answer you hold might get me through this task.

Cages, bars and empty hearts,
I stop the interrogation here and today.
But, I might ask you something, some other day,
For I am not to sit in dismay.

Hello to all the readers and writers out here! I am Meher Gandhi. I am a dreamer and a wanderer, dreaming of a world made of words and wandering in a land of my own scribblings. I am constantly scribbling my reveries and all the secrets I unearth while living, sometimes it’s on paper, most of the times, it’s mental notes. WordPress is a great platform to showcase the art of writing be it on the spot or else. I am loving this work of writing blogs, reading your blogs, commenting on them, receiving the likes, comments and valuable suggestions. It is all so fun! I am a teenager who loves to read and write. I am a positive person and so are my scribblings. If you want to connect with me then, head over to the contact page in the “my pages” section! Would you like to join me in for a walk in my land of scribblings? With love, Meher.
