“Hermit Crab” by Padmanaban Yadav | Poetry | Flickering Thoughts – Dombivli


“Don’t let the rebellion in my words fool you…for I’m a victim too.

All I’m asking is let’s open our minds and our eyes and see it through

For, I’m tired of my perfectly creased shirts and suffocating neckties.

Mundane buildings I climb, the mountains I wish to soar now. Grow my hair long. Write poetry by the foothills an I sip on some chai.

I want my skin to breathe the sunlight, I want my feet to breathe the ground beneath.”

Flickering Thoughts: See how stars are born here.

This is a show that is named after its purpose, we like to call our contestant and our participants as stars, they are creative, artistic, they might even have that one in a million character of being different and being unique. We want to help this kind of people who are hidden under the rock and who are waiting for a platform who has sounded audience, and this audience can encourage their talent as well they can give constructive criticism about their performance so they can learn from it and perform it better the next time.
