Let me live with love and passion

SOMETHING I LOOK AT-121
BY-SMRUTI RANJAN MOHANTY

LET ME LIVE WITH LOVE AND PASSION

On the wings of love,
let me fly to the land of dreams and passion,
where not reason, but reigns emotion,
where the heart speaks and reason keeps mum.

Let me listen to the voice of the heart,
before I miss the bus and my reason takes me miles away from the real I that I am,
not only a man of dignity and honour
but a man with feelings, love, dreams, and emotion.

Too much of rationality
made me irrational,
Insensitive to life and its beauty, to the extent,
I fail to recognise myself, my likes and dislikes,
dreams and fancies.
The more meticulous I become,
the more alienated I am from me,
my emotions and feelings.

Life has become a tedious monotony,
and me a talking parrot in the golden cage.
Let me find the real me, my soul, my dreams, likes, whims, and fancies, so far eluding me.
Let me follow these, so dear to my heart,
with all my love and passion or else I may become another machine.
I don’t want to be a machine working out of compulsion, twenty-four hours without love and hatred, feelings and involvement,
but a man doing multiple roles with feelings and emotion.
Definitely not a machine, a human being I am,
will live and die for what I love, fancy and hold high

Very difficult to endure life,
breath in an atmosphere
where everything is patterned,
love, feelings, behaviour, interaction, expectation and reciprocation with hardly any space for innovation and improvisation.
Not so easy to live with reality,
with rationality guiding you at step each.
Better to have a break,
to take a flight to the world of dreams, fancies, and fantasies.
For a change let me do something
I enjoy, which my inner being accepts,
my heart reciprocates and let me dance in ecstasy and joy

    WH Davies asked a similar question :
    “ What is this life if full of care ?
    We have no time to stand and stare “
    And Keats , in Lamia , warns us against too much rationality .
