I watch people
 unable to grow
 caught in
 self-imposed boundaries
 I want to open a window
 let them inhale freshness
 revise outdated patterns
 start living again
 respect for privacy
 their right to
 I take the easy path
 run out to escape 
 -not acknowledging
 my own fear
 of being influenced
 by stunted mindsets

 fresh inputs alone
 conquer stale thoughts
 I’m eager to give those
 but find no takers

 I get busy again
 building new worlds
 setting up newsfeeds
 to avoid reaching
 where they are…
 being a mute witness
 to decay, all the while…
