Dark liberation-2

Dark Liberation

Inching out given  life times
Dreaming of sweet liberation
In miles-long traffic jams
And half- inch parking frustrations

After hundreds of years
Of blissful hibernation
Just when stirring out of
The limbo of generations

Going without power, in terms
Of  years, two out of three.
Brought things to this pass 
By the powers that be
In just about a decade
Amazing, one will agree.

That this highway also inches 
To the grounds of cremation
Where too darkness is the norm
Is fair consolation.

    I love this..it sounds like a country which didn't have electricity finally MOST of the country is getting it BUT coming late into the 21st century kicking and screaming can't be easy! Light & Love

    Gotta tell ya,...that first stanza is fantastic...great rhyme and depth...such a common thread of frustration!...Who else could write about something so "mundane" and turn it into a wonderful thotful piece? Really nice work, Jag! gwendolen

    deep poem, with an intriguing dark undertone...I recall other poems of yours and they are very well written and profound with a hint of mystery...
