The Night


When the night falls,
Sun leaves you and the darkness starts to fill your eyeballs,
When you stumble on every rock on your way,
All alone on a road in a land far far away,
When all you can hear are the screams of stillness,
And you find signs of increasing frailness,
Open your eyes and look in the sky,
As the moon and stars are not saying you goodbye,
Feel the ground,
And walk as if you own the land,
Listen to the sound of wind in the trees,
The music of the rustling leaves,
Settle your nerves,
Because you are a part of this powerful universe.

Beauty! Where is it?



With a flawless skin which has no sign of aging,
And dark long hair which can be really engaging,
Deep blue eyes which has an ocean inside,
Anyone would love to dive in without knowing what is inside,
She has a perfect smile that can lit up the sky,
But with a dark heart reflecting all the evils under the sky.



Other one is an epitome of ugliness that's how the world see,
With no facial features or perfect teeth,
People love to swipe quickly as her picture comes on screen,
But her acts of kindnesses are always honoured behind the screen.
Her eyes are doves symbolizing peace and love,
And hands so warm that can calm any storm with a touch or a hug,
She is a free spirit woman who you can never tame,
So, if I want to define beauty what it would be?

As Autumn Comes…


As Autumn comes in it's full glory,
I see all the colors from my gallery,
Getting ready for the cold winter nights,
Trees are preparing themselves for their annual fights.
While the green leaves are turning themselves into yellow,orange,purple and red,
I wonder what is going inside their heart as they are going to shed,
Are they ready to let go of their mates,
Or just accepting what is written in their fates?
While they are having their internal conflicts,
What others can see are just those beautiful sights,
Where the colors of their lives comes alive in front of our eyes,
And all we can do is admire their beauty and sacrifice.

You Are Strong…


When the whole world stops,
And there is nothing to hope,
You give your smile,
To convince me that all is well,
Oh baby! You are strong.
When my heart starts to bleed,
And it gets hard for me to breathe,
Then you hug me and kiss me to calm my mind,
I see the resilience in your eyes,
Oh baby! You are strong.
When it gets hard to take another step,
All I see are the walls and there is no way to escape,
You take my hand to go for a walk,
And show me a world beyond those walls,
Oh my baby! You are strong.

When someone rocks your boat…

When someone rocks your boat,
And there is nothing that you can do about,
Calm your body and mind,
But stand tall and keep this in mind,
That even a storm can't touch a tree,
With roots so strong and deep caused by all those hardships on the tree.
When someone rocks your boat,
And blames for something you knew nothing about,
Calm your body and mind,
Fly high and keep this in mind,
That dark clouds can't stop an eagle,
When it's soars high in the sky,
Believing just on its wings it flies high above those clouds in the sky.
When someone rocks your boat,
All you have to do about,
Is to keep holding on to the oars,
And to believe in yourself to row your boat with those oars.

The Remorse


I saw a girl down the street,
A toddler who loved a treat,
With an innocent smile she wandered around,
From one place to another as she didn't remember where she was found.
With a plastic carry bag on her hand,
She was following the big girl who was in command,
Picking up the litters to buy some food,
But I'm sure it was no good.
I walked past her in a hurry to get my bus,
Thinking that I would get another chance and no need of a fuss,
Doing the same thing the whole week,
Finally I found sometime for the weak.
Waiting for her with a bag in my hand,
I never thought that I would be so late to understand,
That reaching out to others is never a waste of time,
Now, all I got is a feeling of remorse that I was not there for her on time.

Taken For Granted..

Like a candle she burns for others,
But gets blamed for the death  of a firefly who tests her patience.

Like an ocean she gives lives to others,
But gets cursed for all the drownings who underestimated her and forgot the strength.

Like a raindrop she quenches the thirst of others,
But is defamed for the destructions caused due to the negligence of yours.

How long will you take her for granted?

What Made You Think?

What made you think that you are beautiful than others?

Is that your face and an unblemished skin which has only a few days to expire?

What made you think that you are stronger than others?

Is that the physical strength of your body which can be taken by an accident or a disease you acquire?

What made you think that you are superior to others?

Is that your status and money which all can be gone by a heavy rain or a fire?

What made you think that you are higher than others?

Is that your religion which is making you to conspire?

What made you think that you are above of any other human being in the world?

Because the day you are buried in the ground, worms will have the pleasure of eating you without any discriminations or bias.

Grace



Walking on the beach and letting the sunlight touch my skin,
I allowed sand and water to be my kin,
While listening to the waves and watching the birds sing,
Tears rolled down as it made my heart swing.
Thinking only about all the disappointments and downs in my life,
I wasn't being grateful to the God who gave me the life.



Then I saw a young girl selling roasted peanuts,
With dirty hands, torn clothes but she was no nuts,
Even after a dreadful long day she had her hopes high,
With love in her eyes, she walked gracefully without giving a sigh.
When she offered me her peanuts seeing me cry,
I could only stare at her and couldn't ask why,
The beach was a place where I could find my final peace,
Instead I found God in her face and I walked back in grace in one piece.

Clueless



How can you be so clueless about yourself?
The lives you make and the lives you break by your presence.
How can you be so clueless about your desires?
So powerful that it can build or destroy someones world without any notice of prior.


How can you be so clueless about your intentions?
Every move you make can protect or breech someone's life forever.
How can you be so clueless about the words that you speak?
Each spoken words has the power to soothe or tear down someone as we speak.


How can you be so clueless about your actions?
As everything you do creates or blocks the passage of life for someone.
How can you be so clueless about your cluelessness?
