Untied

-26th Jan’21

Road ahead wasn’t visible

as I had to keep my head down.

Obligated, I was irritable,

yet could not shift the blame somehow.

Exasperated, there cropped cusses and hatred

but soon followed a realisation,

once tied, I could walk and run

faster than the whole generation.

All the way from the start, they held it together,

only to see me reach my destination.

For a moment’s delay,

they gave me a memory collection.

To ensure I don’t fall later and never recover,

my shoelaces accepted resentment,

which we usually bestow on a well-wisher.
