String!

String!

A Poem by costa siwale
"

maybe our fate is controlled by greater beings/things, elusive unseen. maybe

"

Fixed! to my heart mind and soul,
puppeteer-ed by a living shadow,
Strings! 
From above and down below. 

mechanized bone and flesh,
like mannequins undressed,
exposed! 
through to the soul,
like candles in a storm. 

strings! are strung,  
by gods, by shadows.

thank you Raghib, for reading
Another lovely and clever poem. It does make you wonder if we have any free will. But of course we do, aren't those strings being pulled by part of ourselves ? With the gods and shadows, of course!
Ps, I see I have already made a comment, 8 months ago. Are you still writing?

If this is a work-in-progress I look forward to seeing more. Being "puppeteer-ed by a living shadow" is a beautiful line.
