Unsolicited Advice

Unsolicited Advice short poem

Photo by pfala

Going through life In a catatonic haze
With grim determination avoiding every one’s gaze
With a hard shell around you or is it an iron wall?
Surrounded by people but no one to call
Afraid! Afraid! Afraid! Expecting the worse
With a little hope in the heart, but this fear is such a curse!
Always surrounded and yet so alone
So much to convey… Oh! Why so forlorn?
You must shatter this armour which is self constructed
Go reach out and trust, do not feel so destructed
When walking on the street give a smile and a wave
Help people in need, so what if they are depraved
Smatter this incommodious shield of fear and learn to live
Take a few chances, don’t just exist
Metamorphose! Metamorphose! Break out of the cocoon
Don’t latch on to the familiar, you must learn to fly soon
There is so much to see, so much to explore
Go dive into the ocean, don’t hang on to the shore
