Fenced!

I passed by and saw a mango tree once laden, with all its ripened fruit littered on the floor beneath. And I thought, What a waste! But, then, I think of me- a self-professed introvert- and say, You better open those gates!

Laden   laden branch

waiting for birds to sing;

for eager children

to come pelting;

waiting for

the market crates

and baskets

to bringbasket of fruit

the pleasure I give;

waiting for

jam bottles and jellies;

yearning, empty bellies

to rejoice.

Yet, here I am

wasted;

returning

to the earth

from which I came.

Untouched,rotting

untasted;

wasted

on grounds

surrounded;

fenced in,

protected;

walledgated

in a private place;

introverted

in space

no one can reach!
