Paths !




Paths were made
Sealing one’s fate.
Tunes high n low rung
For the songs of love and hate

Regrets will eat me up
Ghosts of past emerging high
Wake me up from this nightmare
 Reality’s also bitter, so I cry

Why I looked for others
Why felt pain of everyone
Lost in those paths; never meant for me
Tangled in the yarn; that others spun

Or is every stone stacking
In its place, is at home
Confusions organized as myriad divisions
Still clinging to faith; my only option.

Star.



Once a star of a long lost galaxy
I now am mortal of few tendencies
My hands are shaky
My gait slow n weak
What point life arrived
Looking back feels weary

 I had once a river of love in me
Ended in sea of grief ... shortly
Wrath and anger consumed me all
 I was my life’s own adversary
Haste made my present invisible
Regrets magnified faults to infinity

Regrets are for the bounded ones
Remorse for the ones in captivity
The freedom of choice, to live as wish
Is your own, not other’s luxury
Then why you limit yourself as a star
When the universe is flowing in artery.

Such vastness of thought
Such awe in imagery
Physical strengths were a bonus
Provided for early mastery
Your ideas made you special
Not hercs or maiden personality

So be your own hero
Create your moons and Sun
Gloominess is not the very option
Hope will rescue all torn n weary
Get up and stand for your own self
Show the world your shiny destiny.

In a mood.


My morning was shining
My day went right
It’s better to live on
Without usual regret bites.

I am in a mood for love & laughter
No more worries I now can bear
When Life is to live, our only option
Why not with cheers, some tagged tears

I have seen many bragging blessed starts
While other whining about storm hitting hard
Little by little, things move, time passes
Embrace uncertainty as life’s reward

It will end soon while we wonder
Was it worth it, was that right
The shadows will stay murky till their very end
But clarity will tear darkness like the beacons of light.

Skewed Society!!


When tried to word out truth
Was asked to mute my tongue, as truth was rude,
Tried to vent anger
No ear to heed, my means were crude?
You truths are poisonous, try being a prude
Why people’s judgements distorting, why opinions skewed.

They boast people as their mentors
Who were taboos in their times
Mocked by men, insulted by society
A rocky road they travelled,
No silk path they ever viewed
Why people’s judgements distorting, why opinions skewed.
Let such bigoted trolls play their ugly flute
Their stories outdated & obsolete
Their whining now can’t delude
Cursing the opposition is their habit
Abusing new ideas, their food
Why people’s judgements distorting, why opinions skewed.

True Colours!!


There’s a blessing in seclusion
There’s a gift hidden in separation
People aren't the one they seem
Masquerading a self of pure animation

Be true to them with all soul
Pour your heart out in full galore
Open their layers, all attempts will be sore
Are lying through teeth, deception encore

From such treacherous company
From such a traitorous crew
Better be a lone salt, in a sea
Away from all who are tricky and untrue.
