He

P.C :- Stefan Keller- Pixabay

He could see that,

Others barely did,

Cauldron of confusion brewing,

When he tried to explain,

When he tried to reason,

When he tried to offer his lens,

To pictures of his intuitions,

For a ray of light he shared,

Eccentric was the moniker he was gifted with,

Less he cared about enlightening others,

More he beamed within.

Sky uses clouds,

As a shield,

To mask its feelings,

Likewise,

Man has his ways,

To veil his real self,

He could see that,

Others barely did,

Content with his pictures,

Resigned he into a world,

Far away from chaos of multitude.

100 words.

Thoughts behind the piece :- Intuition often helps us to see light. But, when it is shared without any solicitation, more often than not, one would be ridiculed/ ignored/ snubbed. So, I feel it is better to keep one’s thoughts, one’s intuition to oneself, unless solicited.

  1. Quite a thought provoking poem Kitty. I think you’re right that unsolicited advice or opinions are never valued much.
    Thanks a lot for joining in the challenge
