[Poem] An Idea – Scared and Hesitated

An Idea - Scared and Hesitated
An Idea - Scared and Hesitated

It is quite compulsory

on the part of a newly conceived idea

to be scared and hesitated

in its unabated peeping

from the womb to light

for watching a through pass

leading to a house

wherein a hidden reformer waits

to welcome and use it

in blooming smiles in the gloomy faces.

Indeed, the compulsion is caused by

an undead robot – the watchman,

made of non-sticky metal –

untouchable to any prayer or importunity

standing just as an impenetrable wall

in front of the entrance of the house

along with its ghostly gesture

and well ambidextrous too

in showing its reluctance to any new idea –

willing to enter the house

and to any sharp reformation

deserving universal sympathy and support

causing the raising of heads and hands

against its own

and its programmer’s comfortable existence.
