Why should I?

I am a being.

I am being ordered.

I am being compelled.


And indirectly,

with whatever means

at their command.

They have the schemes.

They have the means.

To use me.

To abuse me.

But why should I?

I am a being.
Poem II
Rakesh Koul Nov 2010
To let the scream out;

To let the emotions sprout.

Neither I have the will;

Nor the courage to speak out.

'Cos I am in a cloud that has the power

to destroy me,

from within and without.

Is this a mirage?

Or is it a real one?

It is somewhere there about.

A mirage, A reality –

Only consequences can

figure it out.
This is the first of the eight poems collectively titled " I am on my way"
