Intolerance Haiku

the myths of today

intolerance against life lived

breaking social norms

* I have to confess.. I am not able to complete many haiku I begin to create nowadays and I tend to erase even those I ended up creating and didn’t like. I am more comfortable in writing the haiku related to nature or cultural symbols. This haiku is written in response of Carpe Diem # 237.

It was a few years back…

It was a few years back

that people used to

call me an orator-

the one really eloquent

in conversation, the one

who can talk with any one

and today I find myself

at a path where

I find it difficult to

even talk to myself.

It was a few years back

when I was confident,

always striving to be a leader

and see today I find myself

cowering behind,

wanting some one else

to take the responsibility

while I just see it

from the back.

How time changes

and how much I have

changed,

how much my life

has changed me.
