In The Twilight of Neutrality

written by: Hema



Time to embark on new journey

Change eyed with apprehension

though it'd bring results pleasant.

As flower that bloomed after the season

to let the fragrance linger longer

the ugly duckling that hatched late

to emerge into beautiful swan

Clarity emerges as rainbow

after prolonged, wet, gloomy spell.

The patient wait brings resilience

to move over stumbling blocks

a lesson learnt with every knock

O mind, stop the internal chatter

not with words batter

Things have now come full circle

Your own thoughts and deeds encircle

It's time to get out of the vortex

Silence- it's good for your cortex.
