Ah… Reality

a poem by Venkatesh Parthasarathy

Suddenly reality hits like a boulder
Showering down the mountain straight
Into the body of some wanderer lost in
His dreams and his sunrise mornings
And that moment kills your path and
You fail to realize the reality that hit
You was just another social realm in
Which you play a part, a part you keep
Playing till the end…
Man, I’m some kind of social actor
Getting sick of his outfit, the same old lines and
The same old scrolls down the book…
