He stood there for hours
watching, depicting, trying to understand the picture
A long thought
a deep breath of sigh
on the conjuncture
It is symbolic for sure
but what is the metaphor
He tilted his head from different angles
in his attempt to decipher
A picture tells a thousand stories
this picture has multiple gestures
what is the story should I consider
The viewer stood there and wonder
The picture was black and white
A red line bordered the sight
It suggested many a gesture
Is it love or mayhem
a riot of human cluster
Human! yes it is!
Human, he muster
A picture worth the 1000 words
and all of them are talking aloud
he is astound
by the creation,
the artist's imagination
He nudged his standby perception
the picture is all about "Human bondage"
It is relation that binds us all
whether relation with self
or with God.
Human engages human
with love and dedication
and sets it free
and they rise above the motley
what demons what angels
love indeed conquer
Oh no, there is another tweak
another side to the story
another story to the picture
another metaphor that I decipher
between the earth and sky
dawning from mob fury
to acquiring wings to fly
it is God that lifts us up
and still we fight in name of religion
Instead, let us have some grace
hold each other's hands, embrace
Let's engage with the whole human race!
before we turn completely a selfish caricature
of our own misdemeanor
Rise above mortal, Oh Human creature
this is what I could understand from the above Picture!
