Some life

Stop!
Don’t judge me yet.
I weep in words,
The tear-circus is out of town,
Its been too long.
And would you notice?
that,
I bleed for relief,
from patches of happiness and sorrow, and
search for darkness,
in this emotional de-light.

I believe in the fate that
has been constructed for me –
walls and closed doors,
and bewitched eyes.
Green is as green as that paint on the wall,
pain is as painful as eye can see and hear.
But wait,
don’t judge me yet!
To lose is one thing,
to give up is one thing,
being hopeless is another,
to die doesn’t matter… but …
To come to a world that –
greets you with expectations,
breeds you to be useful,
feeds you with emotions,
tames you with greed –
… and … To carve your own way
through this desert
and not leave a trace,
that would be some life!
Now!

ode of conduct

When the rain kept falling

when it should have stopped

flooding the fields

before the harvest

 

When the birds kept crawling

when they should have fought

for a flight – they were born for

for a sight, their spirits longed for.

 

when the men kept brawling

over reasons so stupid

and the children kept following

eyes closed – hypnotized by reasons unreal!

 

i packed my bag…

and sneaked out onto this path

through the backdoor of this stage

for it holds hopes for my dream,

and a boat for my escape!

take what you can

If you think that you already know,

      then its better if you go.

If you feel that i am angry,

      [don’t worry]

            i’ll never let my feelings show.

And,

if you’re trying to frustrate me,

      i’ll find a way to disagree!

talk sweet and use me

      but i’ll know when

            you’re trying to abuse me

                                                           stop once!

                                                         think twice!

And now,

if you’ve cleared your mind

and if,

you’re ready to receive,

i have,

this small advice to give:

 

Raise

           your voice if

                        your words seem to fade away.

Raise

            your eyes if

                        you get looked down upon.

Raise

            your hands when

                        someone needs help.

Raise

            your steps if

                        the ground underneath slides.

Raise

            your heart to

                        a point of self-respect.

Raise

            your mind against

                        this ever-burning rage!

serenity

we reach out for light

to find ourselves

in the darkness

 

we try to trap love

with a heart

that thinks evil

 

we try to care

with

possessive altercation

 

we reach out for peace

in the things

that take it away from us

 

and we think,

so much

that life is important

just for the sake of thinking

just for the sake of living

after death!

after death??

 

loss

one by one i tried,
taking out the pieces
that i had in my life,

one by one i watched
them leave,searching for more to
give me relief,

one by one, i peeled
them off,just to find out which
one hurt the most,

now running after them,
begging them to return,
now crying in pain,with my tears,
trying to heal my wounds…
i’m alone!
i flew above, so high,
i’m starting to miss the ground!

This endless sea

Deep into the dark, green forest

is an endless sea.

and standing in the middle , with my hands tied to the clouds

it is me!

Watching the waves that strike gently

into the rocks that laugh at me.

 

i wonder, wat is there

to evoke such thunderous laughter.

The breath sucking thirst, and the schorching heat

the vastness of life and not a soul to see!

The age old boat, with the skeleton of the thief .

They all look so well to me.

They all look so good to me!

And, the waves and the endless sea,

they seem to be at peace with me.
