A brotherhood thy say we are
A unity thy say we are
We live as one
We die as one
We all were created as one

Why then do I see blood
Why then do I see frustration
Why then do I see all this hustle
A tussle to end lives
A conspiracy to uproot the tree of peace

Power, authority, lands what do they bring
Nothing but sufferings lie in their wake
War, Death, Destruction, Annihilation
Is this all that human race cares for
Is this what it was made for

Why cant there just be harmony
Why cant there just be unity
Why cant we just be humanity
Savages is what we are
Blood thirsty animals is what we have become

Lets start a union
Lets make this decision
Call in every human
Call in every single person
A plea to be united as one


O Mighty One


Often as I gaze upon the starry sky

I wonder what made it so high
The milky moon like a ball of light
The sun, a blazing fiery bun
And all reminds me of the Greatest One


Often as I gaze upon the lush green land
I wonder Who dotted it with trees
The breeze that constantly blows
Making them move to and fro
And all reminds me of the Almighty


As the buds bloom in to flowers
The fruits ripen and fall
As the butterfly opens its wings
In praise of their Lord the birds sing
And my soul craves to meet the Creator


He gave me eyes to see His Grace
A tongue to saturate with His Praise
He gave me ears to hear His Call
And legs to bow in gratitude
For He is my Lord, the King of alll


Today as I look back upon my darkened life
Drowned in sins and worldly greed
My eyes fill with tears of shame and pain
All my life is spent, with no gain
Will I die without a chance to redemption?


For how long in this world will I stay?
Surely I’ll have to leave one day
With the passage of time I’ve realized
I am nothing but a puppet of clay
Forgive me my Lord, before my life goes away

Ode to a Priceless Jewel


I opened my eyes to a world of cruelty
Where those who loved were found guilty
But that first touch I felt, the eyes I met
Was all I could wish in life to get
The softness and tenderness in them made a bond
Only death could break what had been formed

I stumbled and fell several times in life
She saved me every time from the edge of knife
Her actions made me think she was my enemy
But all she wanted for me was peace and harmony
Many moments passed and I failed to realize
One day I wouldn’t even get a chance to apologize

Today was a day I had never imagined
All of a sudden it had happened
I wrenched her hands hoping to feel the warmth
Cold as ice and without life was all I found
Her lips were so wisp and dry
It all made me want to mourn and cry

O God! Why did You take her away
Couldn’t You have waited for another day
Giving me a chance to say a few words of apology
Now all that was left was a lifeless body
I would have to live with this reality all my life
She died without forgiving me for our strives

I inched towards her wishing she suddenly stood
Her lips moved from under that white hood
I am glad my son to see you are all right
That was all she ever cared in her life
But she had dissolved within the sands of time
A priceless jewel, never again could I find

The essence of friendship


You stand there all alone
Fires of grieves raging around you
That look in your eyes tells me
You cant get the water to put them out
You cant on your own win this bout

I see a tree standing in your place
So withered and so dry
None other hovering by its side
I see brown leaves lying in its wake
As if they were nothing but fake

Something I saw that no one else could
That you were torn apart by torments
A storm inside you each second grew
And you were unable to walk through
Happiness was what you wanted in lieu

Let me be your umbrella
Be it the sun or be it the rain
My shadow be your shade
Let me be your own tree
Fruits, flowers everything for your glee

I will be your shadow
Look behind your back when its dark
And stick to you when its light
I will be your eyes and ears
With me around there is nothing to fear

People come and go in life
Its only the true friends that stay behind
Who be your guiding light in the dark
They say a friend in need is a friend indeed
I will be one even when there is no need

Here is a flower, blooming and smiling
May this be the essence of our friendship
Here is a diamond, sparkling and shining
Be it the mirror on which our lives reflect
Take them, May all your worries they deflect

One Last Chance


Someone once asked me what is love6064768-256-k977607
And I replied it’s a new world
Where once you step in you lose yourself
Its an ocean of immeasurable depths
Where the waves of feelings drown you
It’s a valley with deep gorges full of bliss

I don’t remember how I entered in it
As if I had fallen into a deep pit
I lost sense of space and time
Just that I was yours and you were mine
The camera of my life was focused on you
I didn’t care where everyone else had gone to

Time and again I felt lost
Gone into the world of your thoughts
Everything else became a mere distraction
Only you were left in my life’s equation
I was ready to live for you, die for you
For my soul had been bought by you

Never could I imagine this day would come
Away from my love you would run
Saying that no more you loved me
How did this time come to be
Was it a game you were playing all along
A mere click and out of your life I was gone

My heart has been replaced by a black hole
Consuming me from inside mole by mole
My world has been reduced to ashes
My life now a collection of meaningless dashes
It so aches thinking about all this mess
Was I just a pawn to your game of chess

I still wonder where had it all gone wrong
Am I to be blamed all along
The look you bear in your cold black eyes
Makes me reason its too late to apologize
I wish you could see the storm that brews in my head
One chance, just one chance is all my heart begs

Familiar Strangers in our midst


You are walking down the lane with your head held low. And suddenly you look up and see a pair of eyes staring at you. And you get lost in the depth of those deep black wells. You see yourself falling down a familiar hole. Like you know every crevice and crack in it. You know every bulge and depression of the walls. You know how deep the well is and how wide it is. You know every inch of it.

You know that person so well that just a look on their face and you know what they are feeling. You can understand their silence. You listen what they don’t say. You understand what they don’t convey. You delve down the memory lane. A stream of black and white images loop before your eyes. Moments. Happy ones, sad ones, laughter, tears, the hourly talks, the long walks, the fights and the reunites. You see life. Life as it “was”.

Suddenly the person standing next to you waves his hand in front of your eyes.

“Hey im talking to you. Where are you lost?”

And the stream ends. You pop out of the dark well like a vacuum pulling you out. And as you walk out you start to see that everything about that well has changed. The familiarity gone. The place alien to you. Everything’s different. You are wrenched back to reality.

You look again. And you realise that the entrance to the well is actually barred. Huge walls stand erect. The eyes seem empty to you. An air of strangeness hangs. You try to feel a felling that you cannot feel. The feeling of being close. Its like you go back to an old house where you had once lived and you realise suddenly that you have lost its key. There’s no way in. You stand outside wondering what has changed inside. You try to look through the windows and under the doors and all you see is a darkness that you cannot pierce.

And then they pass you by without a glint of recognition. You refuse to look back for the fear you might lose yourself in places you know nothing about anymore.

Familiar Strangers in our midst. Yes! They exist. Strangers we once knew. Strangers we once were close to. You go from being strangers to someone you know, to being friends and to being closest friends. And then time takes it’s toll. The reverse starts. From closest friends to strangers the journey begins. Slow, painful and torturous. And it all leaves you thinking. Leaves you wondering with one question. How can someone whom you know more than they know themselves and they know you more than you know yourself, become total strangers?

The world is strange
A place so eerie
You walk by places
You once knew so dearly


Familiar faces hide behind masks
The masks of complete strangers
Eyes shut and mouths stitched
A darkness heavily pitched


The sands of time fall by
As autumns and springs come and go
You realise a lot you have missed
For their lie familiar strangers in our midst

This isn’t me, This isn’t you

“Wake up, just wake up
its time to face your fears
take off this fake make up
lets go as life steers
reality waits for us
lets catch the missed bus


don’t you
regret you ever met me
went through
so much to get me
lets go back to the start
before we fell apart


maybe if i black out
it would all become clear
why did we have this bout
maybe its all because
we couldn’t just be
maybe all that was wrong was me


this isn’t me
this isn’t you
just everything we do
till we open our eyes
and understand this ain’t real
just our delusions and life’s ordeal


this isn’t me
this isn’t you
this is everything but true
till we realize
its what you did and i did too
its what we put each other through”

My miseries

“Fall back on memm0006
and ill be the strength you need
ill be there forever
when none else would be

just don’t ever break me
cause this mask is all i have
don’t push me, don’t make me fall
just to see the other side of me


behind all this
hides a broken man
but maybe none will ever see
for to get to him there’s a high fee


but there’s no saving him
deep within layers he lies
been dormant for too long
already said all his goodbyes


but maybe it all doesn’t matter
all people need is an empty shell
drain it of all its strength
and move on when none’s left


save him maybe
or maybe let him be
a choice people don’t bother to make
all they do is never give only take


too many maybes in life
too many uncertainties
where do i go, what do i do
to end these never ending miseries”

Fire and Ashes

imagesMy hands quiver. My pen wavers. My thoughts uncertain. I feel empty once again. Lost and empty. My insides feel on fire. Crumbling all in its path and moving on to the outside. i want it to burn. Burn what lies outside. Burn all that lives around me. And perhaps in the dark black center of the burning flame, in the wake of destruction it leaves behind, in the screaming of my burning soul, in the smell of my burning flesh, in the ecstasy of the agony it gives, in the beauty of the phoenix of the red fire, ill find my peace. My eternal peace.

Peace? After all these years i dont even know what that means. The sound alien to me. The meaning lost. I look at the candle burning. Its flame still. Wavering, but holding. Was that peace? The yellow giving way to orange. The orange turning to red. And finally the red being consumed by the black. The sheer beauty of it leaves me in awe. The calmness it radiates. But perhaps i was seeing it wrong. The colors. The flame. Peace wasn’t the yellowness turning into a dark blackness. It was the darkness being pierced by the coloured lights. And perhaps thats what i needed in life. A change of perspective.

My fingers inch forward .Trying to grab it. I couldn’t get it. Why not grab it? Yikes. It burns. What is this searing pain i feel shooting through my fingertips going all the way up? I thought I was numb. How can I feel this pain now? Why do I? All i want is peace for myself. It isnt too much to ask for. But then again its one of the tragedies of life. Things lie just before u. Out their to be held, to be taken. But an invisible barrier bars ur way. Always. U reach out and the forcefield drives your hand back. You stagger. You fall. Yet you rise and hold out your hand again. And the endless cycle goes on. The cycle of life.

Theres a deep silence inside me
The silence of void deep within
I hoped for a hope that never came by
For a dream that i never dreamt
The bearings of a great storm
A red lining on the horizon
Dark clouds rising above
A ditch dug down below
I long for a peace
The peace for a broken mind
These shattered edges of the mirror
A torture i want to leave behind
It sticks like a leech
Sucking my life bit by bit
Until none is left therein
A smoking candle that once lit
I call for a saviour
To reignite the diminishing flame
But who dare answer
For this is but just a life’s game
I hold onto my mere hopes
Like a drowning person to burning ships
For its just a matter of time
When all will be fire and ashes

The World Inside


Imagine being the master of your own world. imagine having the power, the control, the will guiding your surroundings bending them to how u want them to be. Imagine having a world where there is noone but you and yourself.

Im too tired of being strong. Im too tired of this shroud that engulfs my whole being trying to appear to the world what im not. Im too tired of watching all the faces torturing me. I want a way out. A place far. Far yet near to it all. And there it lies. Deep in the darkest corners of my brain. This world that ive created. A home. A refuge. My heavenly abode among all the hell. I walk through the thick shrubbery. The dense foliage of old trees. Trying to find my way past.This maze of trees is my life. Old, battered, forgotten they just stand their biding their time since eternity to an eternity. A lifelong torture of being rooted to the very same spot unable to move on. Yet tiny streaks of light filtered through the canopy of what lush green leaves were left alive. Was that Hope? What is this golden circle that illuminates my very being, wherever it touches? How can light pierce through the darkness? The darkness that is my soul. No. i hate it. I want to run. I want to hide. Away from light of hope that pierces the darkness of despair and fulfills the dreams you dream your whole life. I ask myself why? Why wont i let hope guide my soul? Why give up on my dreams? Silence is what welcomes me everytime. I look down at the crumpling yellowed leaves dotting my path. The sound of them being crushed feels like a hammer shattering the mirrors around my heart leaving it vulenrable. i run. i duck. i jump. ive reached the very center. A large pool. In the very center of the thicket of trees i had just burst out of. Waves thrashed inside the pool. A chaos. A torture. Restlessness. I walk on the water. Making my way to the large leaf floating in the center of the pool. i sit down cross legged. My hands on my knees. I close my eyes. The syncing starts. The water was the state of my mind. I had to calm it somehow. It was my world. I was the master here. And slowly the din of the waves vanishes into a peaceful silence. I take a deep breath. The damp soil, the dew on the leaves, the calm water, what refreshing smells. I open my eyes. Green, peaceful, and silent. Perfection. Simply perfection. My mind feels at ease. Like a shadow has disappeared. An unseen burden thrown off. A strange feeling of lightness cradles my head lullabying it into a sleep of bliss. Here, i cant drown. Here, i cant fall. Here i stay above the waters, fighting, winning. Here, i cant lose.
