hold still

by pushkar prabhat

Catapulting on the

severed, remains

of courage,

He took a leap

of will, into the vastness.

His being overwhelmed.

Look among

the ripples and bubbles,

that followed, there

see that biggest fin.

He should have rested.

Waves and ripples

and intensifying…..

At least, he could

have had some

moments of peace.

It’s painful to watch.

It’s torture to, imagine.

Oh! noble soul.

You were your own kind.

Grab your weapons,

Hold in some air.

Let’s dive in….

maybe, we will find,

along the way,

what’s left of him…..

But wait…….wait a minute….

The ocean…..all of a sudden

seems awfully quiet.

What is this tremor?

Lie down. Hold still….

The water’s sinking in…

The lands rising….

Oh my God….

what’s happening.

Sound the alarm.

Save us, save us.

  1. Taking that willing leap, and overwhelmed at my own choice, I am sometimes drowning, sometimes fighting …it is easier to observe another’s journey and rush to rescue before realizing it is our journey too …to rest and be still …
    Enjoyed this thought-provoking work! 🙂

  2. At times we can all feel overwhelmed drowning in the ocean of our own making.. A very creative poem fitting to end the year with in what has at times seemed a turbulent one.. May we all learn to ‘Hold still’ within and make contact with our inner calm.. And Rise UP out of our emotions to the Peace .. Which awaits us all..

    Wishing you a very Happy New Year Pushkar..
    Love and Blessings..
