Hot-air Balloon

Let’s get into the groove

Fly high in a hot air balloon

that flies only in the vast sky

and if the balloon’s rope gets untied

from the ground

You’d be left alone in the air

with few unknown men

and now you all, tackle together

an unforeseen circumstance

just like you would’ve tackled

with ones you’ve always known!


What would you all do?

in the air that’s unharming

yet that doesn’t guarantee a living

even when it’s giving 

the inevitable element – Oxygen

that you breathe

that keeps you alive!


What would you all do?

to come out of this

unforeseen circumstance

when different minds think unlike

where few will talk and others shout

and amidst all this lovely mess

there’ll be a time

when one or all of you will suggest

Stay calm, let’s think please 

and then slowly, the ways of

coming out of this open air

will be unleashed!



What do you think?
