In the land of 7 billion people…

Today’s ‘Thinking Out Loud post is taking a small twist and shall be in the form of poetry.

The air around the poem is melancholic, akin to the lull that surrounds this winter season. The trees are barren and dusk sets in early. We wander about in pensive thoughts. A small entity of this huge universe, yet so distinct. The connection between two people feels so obstructed. Loneliness sets in. Love, is no longer widespread. Hope seems dead before it even arises. The state of the future, sets in more anxiety and fear. Our self-worth seems to be questioned. The hunt for our passion seems to be a lost cause. We feel suppressed, unable to express. Left to wonder, will life ever be better again.

Hope you enjoy this poem!

In the land of 7 billion people,
Will we all unify like a steeple?
Inquires I, a lonely lost soul,
Life of whom, is dark as coal.

In the land of 7 billion people,
Desolation only seems to triple
Our life breaths, verily disconnected
Walls of separation, steadily erected.

In the land of 7 billion people,
Love is implied to be the staple
Why can’t I feel it around me
Maybe I’m trivial, as small a pea.

In the land of 7 billion people,
Hope is to burgeon like a ripple,
But, caged to feel like an inmate,
Will I break free, all this weight!

In the land of 7 billion people,
Anxiety hits, thinking the sequel,
Future of mine, nothing but foggy,
Present mental state, oh so groggy!

In the land of 7 billion people,
My worth, maybe, cheap as diesel,
Carving an identity in this field,
A heap of talent, still concealed.

In the land of 7 billion people,
What art to place on the easel,
The concept of passion, afar a mile,
Search of my purpose, oh so futile.

In the land of 7 billion people,
Voice of mine feels lost and feeble.

In the land of 7 billion people,
Will life of mine, be impeccable?
