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

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
