When I saw this topic of fragrance , to write poetry on (for a competetion),literally I was like ” how come anyone can write a poem on fragrance?”, i didn’t have a clue. But later on ,few ideas popped up in my mind and then i tried to go ahead .FINALLY, after a great deal of thinking ,I had been able to pen down a poem on the life of a fragrance.
So here it goes…..
I take birth in nature’s lap ,shielded by the sky ,unbound and surrounded by the greenery all around.
My birth is a thing of celebration for one and all, everyone comes to visit me without any call.
i love to dance and travel, and go past the streets ,lanes and different places
To name a few, near the vanilla tree or a rose flower.
i also lie dormant in sand and wake up when i meet that heavenly downpour.
My parents never try to confine me, i go where ever i want to go,
i live my life with full liberty!
My presence is cherished ,and my absence passes into nothingness,
You see, i am always a source of cheers and happiness.
But ,there are some wicked creatures,
who come into my home and crushes my parents brutally,
they pluck them, they break them, and then rob me of my liberty
I feel helpless and wonder at the thought,
that how can people claim anything over which they have no right.
i cry for help ,but my tears fail to reach their sight!
and my happy family is shattered at the hands of their misery !
They enjoy trapping me in their opulent and ostentatios bottles,
and limits my access only to those who have money.
they insist me to live and make me eat chemicals and medicines,
Oh god! when would these men realise the magnitude of their sins!
i can neither be seen nor be heard, but you can still feel my essence.
My parents didn’t give me a name ,but i heard people calling me as ‘fragrance’.
So, I hope that you too did feel this journey of the unseen and the unheard!!
THANKS FOR READING! 💚💜
