Tied around my soul

Tied around my soul,
Are chains of duty and sorrow,
Stealing my joy of life.

No time for restlessness,
I’m burning inside,
Do I deserve to suffer?

A question remains unanswered,
Salt sprinkled in the wound,
Of a youth that ages fast.

Send a meaningful reply,
Help untie my soul,
Freeing me from ageing.

I can't move forward,
When I’m constantly held back,
By the shackles of my present & past.

Leaving me torn,
Break these chains of obligation,
Before I’m broken myself.
Gokarna beach, India, 2009.
