As if all the creatures of this planet are absent. I am left alone here for a purpose. Sun has risen, The windows of my room are opened. The murkiness is gone now. Zephyr is spreading fragrance of serenity. I look out of the window To feel the ineffable sense of quietude. My soul from the demons is now rescued. Rays of the sun coming through the window of my room strike my heart, Then get reflected back in the form of poetry. Poesy, where my words are dancing in unison On the music which is never listened. As if, my words were caged The lock of their chain is opened from a magical key. Today, as if they have got the desired liberty. Everything seems to be surreal. I dont want this to be ephemeral. Yesterday, it was dark and catastrophic The ambience was tumultuous and cacaphonic. My heart was under siege. I saw avarice, lust, betrayal and tease. Today, I feel a gentle breeze Evils are shunned away from my periphery To me, now no one can defeat. After so many years of inner combat I have got this belief. Tomorrow, if there will be odds against me I am ready to combat, I am here only.
I am like last few drops of water from a tap, which people nonchalantly don't care to put in their buckets.
I carry high importance at some places where people have hearts like desert. Few drops, if could not make their hearts green but can give hope to them for their green future. Few drops, if could not bring happiness in their lives instantly but can give them hope by germinating a seed of happiness in their deserted hearts.
Once their hope will turn into the realization, I will become the last few drops of water to them again which they won't care to put in their buckets.
I wont lose my existence. After hitting the surface, I will be vaporised and come back again, perhaps like the last few drops of water from the tap.
In a hope of getting space in the bucket, I seek love and affection. One day I will be cared and nurtured like the initial drops. One day I will get the salvation.
A penurious and malnourished man, waiting to marry her daughter. Collecting dowry for her with each penny he saves by pulling rickshaw the whole day but himself, he barely eats a time, doesn't see the doctor.
Desires? He doesn't know about their existence. Pain? He lives with it only.
Please don't play games with my heart It took me years to trust you for a new start You played with my emotions, while playing hopscotch in my brain The truth eluded you, you made me think I was insane All the random meetings, in all the random places, just happened to be recorded, with random pictures of their faces You thought you were so clever, like I'd just fall for all your charm, There was a time I would have, but you set off my creep alarm I loved you, and I wanted to believe your promised bliss But now you're leaving here with nothing, & you will miss my vulnerable kiss!
Lightening streaks across the sky For a midnight feeding and lullaby You're wrapped so tightly in my arms It's impossible to resist your charms It's raining softly, and I rock you now While in the cradle, & breaking the bough Your breathing so soft, that of a sigh The thunder cracks loudly, and you begin to cry Hush now sweet baby, there is no need to cry, You're safe in my arms as I hum the lullaby
We've all heard the adage, "The Apple doesn't fall far from the tree" This can be applied in most cases, I'm sure of this, we can agree It is our responsibility to be the best role model that we can So that the youth following our footsteps, a proper future they can plan Lift them up when needed but don't enable or coddle too much Give them a firm foundation with strong roots, to build as such Let's give them a hand up and not a hand out, to help fill them with self confidence, and eliminate self doubt
