Recluse

[NOTE: This one's dedicated to my reclusive friend, Mk Madhavan...]

 

I can’t curtail myself

Within the boundaries set

Can’t live amidst the flock

That does nothing but fret

 

 

Rules of the world

Can’t chain my spirit

I can’t strive forever

To prove my merit

 

 

Judged I am, so be it

I’ll be who I want to be

I won’t try fitting the bill

I was meant to be free

 

 

Every single soul 

Is sick to the core

Claims to be a saint

Yet knocks on hell’s door

 

 

Shunted rationalities

And twisted priorities

Life’s marred by quarrels

And they talk of peace

 

 

I sure can mingle

But what’s the use

None’s worth my time

Am better off, a recluse
