The Big Burst

POETRY FORMAT, 15 Oct 2012

Udaya R. Tennakoon – TRANSCEND Media Service

Like a ball sinking in water
Life is flowing
Fighting with
Suppression in it

Slavery mind
Bonded to the master
Keeping a side
The sharpen sword
Of patience

Acting face
With laugh and cry
Glitter of feelings is
Burnt out
Inside the eyes

Like a thunder bolt
A big burst
Inside or outside
Sound of the timer

Aborts instantly
Or digests slowly
Predictions are too early
Indicates something daily

The line in between
Birth and death
Existence of silence
To bearable danger is called
Life in no guaranty

Human, animal and world
Yesterday, today and tomorrow
Words, actions and gaps
Meanings to be changed
