A POEM. The struggle to conform in today's world is more real than we choose to admit. We all want to make a mark, an impact, in a world where billions of others are seeking to make the same mark. I hope we all find our unique spot and calling that would place us in our own space, where we can effectively contribute to making the world a better place.

Yes, I still write poetry

Nowadays I mostly store in my digital pantry

Searching for the perfect entry

To validate my poetic punditry.

If my wishes do not fall in symmetry,

Then, I might just have a retry

At constantly serving you my poetic pastry.

I am trying to align with the norm

Of having your portfolio in form

And getting showcased on a visible platform.

I’ve got no other option than to conform

Until there is a reform

In gauging how ‘upcomings’ perform.

I hope someday I am able to make a difference 

That would result in deference 

As well as inspire adherence 

To a system that makes no inference 

Based on the wrong reference.
