A Better Way

A Better Way prose poem

Photo by LorenzWorkz


Is there really no way out?
He thinks everyday
Every morning Waking up with boredom
Need to find a cause, a better one
He digs up the dump of memories
A happier one, a brighter one
The dust is everywhere
Only the misplaced sunbeam
Through the loopholes of windows
Can make it barely visible
The iron bed is there
Old, torn dirty with time
The bed is getting older than time
Like the man lying on it…
The sunbeams could reach a little
Barely touchable where he is laid
There’s no clock, no disturbing ticking sounds
Or any hourly buzz to make him aware-
He is getting one hour older
A better one… He tries to concentrate
60 years on foot, rest twelve on bed
The iron’s getting old, the bed dirty
The sunbeams reaching a few inch more in winter
No ticking of clock…
He lost track of time
Every midday… More silent than his breath
Every afternoon more hazy than his memory
A better cause…
He keeps on hunting…
The long building…hundred rooms..
Empty as his soul
A little piece of plaster falls again from the roof
A way must to be decided…
A better one… A better one..

Along The Unhallowed Way

The man pushes the other man in a wheelchair Down a dreary Salford road, avoiding kerbs, talking Always talking, talking of nothing, talking of everything, What it takes and never gives back. The load. With wheels of fire and halos

Constellation of stars.. Among, The collection of planets… Give a way to reach toward destination… When storm passes away.. The tidal waves set apart.. By seeing the stars and their direction… We follow the best way.. Its mean stars give

No Way Out
