Empty Bowls

Being labelled as ‘a misfit

who thinks’, I was protruded

by the machines operating

a practical world.

I had an option none, but to

frequent the gathering of thoughts;

the lifeline for a dying

heart and mind.

Its only there where I

caught the addiction

of sipping poetic words.

These days when food shortages

are grave, I almost suffocate

when the bowls are empty.
