Chains

Chains short poem

Photo by Peter Kurdulija

We are in chains
Our life is a dream
With lot many strains
We can’t scream
In clouds and rains
In search of a beam
Which may take in?
All shadowy ways
And make it a sin
Without any craze
Puppets as we are
We can’t wage a war
Against all forces
In normal discourses
But a day will come
In life troublesome
When a beam of light
May peep in the soul
Take us to a flight
We may win a goal
We will be free
Like a bird in the sky
Our bodies will dance
Our souls will fly
For God’s communion
In a chain of reunion
