Gravity is pulling the shoulders
Heaviness is retarding the movements
Vexation is not the real case
Current situation is a difficult maze

Been clambering with all my might
Optimism will soon be out of sight
Monotonous non-adventurous life
Fatuous feeling, nothing to beguile

The hanged clothes live in desert
Perfume talks no more about love
Street and Food are now just words
Writing them down because it hurts

Travel and Food and Clothes
Engulfs a body with confidence
Changes are important for a human life
Till when shall we live in this prison?

Impressive about me is my eagerness to try everything. Self Motivation is a fixed gear of my creativity vehicle provoking me to dance to the tune of optimism. Yoga and books are the two transducers of this victim which have helped to be straightforward and open minded. Improvement is the second gear which is under construction and will always be undergoing changes simultaneously achieving different goals. There are other supporting gears with less of speed more of energy. This is KRITIKA 🙂


  1. So beautifully expressed, Kritika! Your poem says it so well. ❤ This situation is wearing on all of us. Reading your poem is cathartic…we are reminded that we are not alone in feeling this way.

    I am having trouble sleeping. Last night I dreamed I had forgotten my mask and was being reprimanded for it. When I was in the hospital, I wore my mask even while sleeping, though the nurse said it was unnecessary. It turns out now, that was a good thing. 🙂

    Last week I learned from my doctor that the months-long illness I just recovered from was, in all probability, undiagnosed coronavirus. I became sick when the only symptoms they knew about were fever and respiratory issues, neither of which I had.

    My coronavirus symptoms included a loss of sense of taste for a few days, and debilitating diarrhea…I was suffering from the gastrointestinal version of coronavirus. I had complications of kidney infection, diverticulitis, and ovarian cysts and was on antibiotics for two months, both oral and intravenous. It is now known that the virus can cause a whole array of distressing symptoms and chronic conditions, including brain damage. As I am in a high-risk group, because of age and chronic health issues, I am thankful to be alive and well. 🙂

    A word of caution: if you have had coronavirus, the antibodies may only remain in your body for a short time, and your immunity may not last very long.

    Take care, Kritika! Thank you for sharing your wonderful poem! Thank you for your ongoing concerns about my health. ❤ Cheryl

    1. Hey Cheryl,
      Heartily happy that you recovered Cheryl (Hugs) (Heart). You are a fighter and an inspiration for all of us.

      The situation has really been weary and teary but we all are together standing strong.
      The dream you saw it might be because of the recent development that your illness was the corona virus.

      Times have made some of us very alert. Mind is encompassed with thoughts of corona every time we step out.

      Loads of love and positivity your way. xoxo
