Institutionalized – An English poetry

Institutionalized english poetry swatisjournal

Being institutionalized is basic human nature. Worldly pleasures, desires and the self-love are so enticing for us that we literally bind ourselves to them. We forget that the body we’ve been sent here with is merely a carrier for the soul visiting this place just for a while. We look up to someone to save us and to drag us out of the mud of lurking desires. So, either we love or hate, we get used to this cage and slowly we long for its enslavement!

Whom are you waiting for?
No one’s coming for breaking the chain,
You’re in a place where they only befriend the gain.
Confined in a cage, you’re the bird that has no choice,
And it’s been years you’ve forgotten to raise your voice.
This enslavement is deeply ingrained in your core –

Whom are you waiting for?
You flutter your wings in a fit of pique,
The cage is impaired of hearing thy shriek.
Slowly, you’d forget the reason for your cry,
Impassive thou might overlook to try.
Wily enclosure will subjugate you more –

Whom are you waiting for?
Gradually deranged by the vassalage,
Thy scraggy soul would start loving the cage.
Imprisoned in your delusional hutch,
You may not covet your existence much.
Encasing the desires that’d never restore –

You aren’t waiting anymore!!
