Poem

Fearless I write


Lets-write-something-writing-4545938-1024-768

When emotions concealed, come out as tears
Captured is mind, silence resonates in ears
When lost is the strength, belief disappears
I throw out some words, and spit out my fears

When contentment is meager, too large is desire
When realities are too harsh, too ugly to admire
When hopes and dreams are shattered, words conspire
I scribble down my anger, to ignite a fire

When path is too tiring, and treacherous and long
When exhausted is body, too heavy to drag along
Then moments are critical, and demand you to be strong
It is when write, to sing a warrior’s song

When thrilled by success, my heart does prance
When enchanted is the mind, by its mighty expanse
When restless is soul; restless to advance
In those showers of joy, my pen too does dance

To spell out my agony, to celebrate delight
To embrace the darkness, to conjure the light
In moments of ecstasy, in moments of fright
Solely at heart’s call, fearless I write

That the powerful play goes on… and I… might just contribute a verse…

Dancing In Madness


As I stand and adore this land
Where the mighty sea meets the sand
Where winds strong kiss the sea
And create waves and let them free

Where the sea does endlessly try
To quench the thirst of the lands dry
Wave after wave it tries in vain
Ages have passed, not an inch did it gain

I stand and absorb the nectar of delight
As I free my mind with the birds’ flight
Dive into an ocean where materials lose their meaning
And all that is left is emotion and joy unending

Waves of elation, sorrow and pain
Hit the rocks reduce them to grain
Demolishing the boulders of ignorance and fear
Creating sands of experience and wisdom clear

I feel the nature dancing around
Dancing in joy immesurable and unbound
Celebrating the creation, existance and destruction
Immersed in this cycle of joy sorrow and satisfaction

And now as I turn to a trail unknown
A path scary, now seems my own
Fearless with knowledge I advance
With elation in heart, madly do I dance…

Hope carries on…


The following poem is written in flow while listening to this amazing piece by ‘The Corrs’

Floating along the waves of time
Immersed in the flow of this soothing rhyme
I see a world pious and serene
With the singing birds and forests green

And I, a traveler passing by
To where eternity does lie
Bathing in the river of realisations
Witnessing his various incarnations

Behind the beauty, a truth does lie
Like the bright sun in a clouded sky
By the glory of which, enchanted I fly
To reach beyond the clouds, I relentlessly try

Efforts are made, endeavours are done
The journey itself seems to be fun
The joy is immense, when a part is revealed
How great will be the ecstasy when truth is concealed?

Time is too short, too long is the sail
Failures too guide me through the trail
Sailing through the dusk, waiting for the dawn
Efforts may fail, but a hope carries on…

Sometimes…


DSC03566

Sometimes you feel, the world is against you
Moments of joy are a countable few
Sometimes in the heart an anger awaits expression
But it waits too long, and comes out as depression
Sometimes your love, does not return the favour
Any attempt of bridging is but a failed endavour

Sometimes the night seems too long
Ways seem lost and thunders too strong
Sometimes in the mind, we house a fear
A fear whose voice only we can hear
Sometimes your rival overpowers you in war
And all you are left with is a deep burning scar

Sometimes in life you ask for a second try
But knowing there is none, you can only cry
Sometimes in life, you know you’re right
But the time’s too worse to showcase your might

Sometimes you watch victory pass by
Sometimes you see ambitions simply die
Sometimes you believe you can acheive success
Sometimes knowing that you still refuse to progress

Sometimes betrayed is your belief which persisted
You seem to be lost, secluded and cheated

Those are the times you must not loose your will
Move along, and never stand still
As repenting will only double your grief
Shatter the confidence, weaken your belief

But do slow down for a moment to ponder
Let free your mind, let it wonder
Where were you wrong, why do you suffer?
Why is it that life seems tougher?

Realise the problem, and think of a solution
Modify the way, multiply your devotion
Demistify your mind, and never look back
Sometimes do check if you are on the right track…

I still follow you

This is another poem with two authors…
The first part is by my friend themuulticoloredarc and the second part is added (as a response) by me…

We were walking on a road,
Hand in hand,
You didn’t seem your usual self,
Out of blue, you decide to race,
Not with me, with the world,
All I wanted was to be with you….

So I started following you,
Not because I could’t lead,
Coz I trusted you with the right path,
Knew that at times you would fall,
But I would be there to help you walk…

But I began to lag behind,
And you didn’t care to stop,
The distance grew,
And I had to shout to tell you how much I love you…
But you got into a stride,
And my feelings were unheard…

But I still follow you,
You think you don’t need me,
I know you more,
If only you would turn around,
Ohh, I can fix myself,
It’s the love I won’t be able to fix…

A day will come when you won’t be able to find me,
Not coz I won’t be there,
It’s you who won’t be able to recognize me,
blinded by your pride…

——————————————————————————-

I stand alone on a mysterious land
Yelling for help, your supporting hand
The world seems unknown, a bit too grand
The wind is too strong for me to withstand

I feel strange, powerless, shattered and weak
Your caring touch; the words of love, is all that I seek
But loneliness and seclusion seem to be dense
It is only now that I realise my offense

Oh I was mad, too lifeless to feel
That you would be lost in this time of ordeal
I was too sure that I would stand tall
But never could I perceive this disastrous fall

I was too selfish to race up the track
Too cruel and brutal, not to look back
The glare of success made me blind
And slowly I forgot, that you lagged behind

Indeed the track was of success and glory
But that is not the complete story
Not a moment of joy or glory is worthwhile
If success is not celebrated, and unnoticed goes a smile

So I turn back and follow my trail
With a hope in heart that will never fail
That you would be waiting for me on the track
And sooner than later, I would come back…

Fly off!

Fly off! you wandering soul

Advance towards the standing goal

Rip apart the strings, and set yourself free

Fear not mountains, forest or sea.

Time passes by, don’t be late

Hurry up now, as success won’t wait

Why do you fear, the unknown and unseen?

Don’t you want to know, what real adventure means?

Off you fly, but cautious you move

Don’t let yourself, slip off the grove

Addictive is the world, blinding is its glitter

It deceives your senses; even sweet tastes bitter

But fear not the world, as it can be tamed

All you need, is a mind properly aimed

Use your wisdom, to cautiously move through

Filter out the truth, from what seems true.

Advance with caution, and you will realise

A world is waiting, full of surprise

Amazing is the taste, and pride of fulfilment

Joy of success, satisfaction of achievement

And when in you journey, you reach a milestone

Reflect upon the fact, that you are not alone

There were some, who considered your success their own

And they are waiting at the home, from where you have flown

आज फिर


imagesCA4N36FP

आज फिर वही दिन; फिर वही बात है

जज्बे और जूनून की अरमानों से मुलाकात है ।

आज फिर तिरंगा गर्व से हवा में लहराएगा

हर बच्चा प्रफुल्लित हो राष्ट्रगान फिर गाएगा।

फिर निकलेगी मतवालों की टोली; राजपथ मुस्काएगा;

कला संस्कृति के प्रदर्शन से हर राज्य आज इठलाएगा।

आज फिर बलखेगी अमर जवान याद कर परवानों को ;

होंगी आँखें फिर नम याद कर उन बलिदानों को।

पर फिर आएगी रात नए दिन का आगमन होगा

शहीदों की कुर्बानी का पुनः जब विस्मरण होगा।

दैनिक कोलाहल के बीच कहीं गौरवान्वित भारत खो जायेगा

आज का प्रगतिशील भारत मानवता को भुलायेगा।

फिर दब जाएगी वह करुण चीख गाड़ियों के शोर-शराबे में;

और इसी तरह फिर चढ़ेगी भेंट नारी पौरुष के उग्र प्रदर्शन में।

फिर भी विषाक्त होगी गंगा कल कारखानों के दूषण से;

फिर भी दौड़ेगी फाइलें यहाँ नोटों के ही पोषण से।

फिर भी लहराएगा तिरंगा; पर न उसमें गौरव होगा;

फिर भी गाएगी हवा यहाँ; पर उसका राग भैरव होगा।

समस्याएं होंगी अनगिनत; फिर भी हम उन्ही पे इतरायेंगे ;

गण होंगे पर तंत्र न होगा; फिर भी हम गणतांत्रिक कहलायेंगे।

Lost Childhood


A carefree face, a pleasing smile

So innocent; my heart stops for a while

Eyes large; and full of joy

Searching for his favorite toy

There it is! and flash, he goes

Out of his heart, laughter flows

A laugh which hides no pain

A laugh which knows no loss or gain

Hours of play; no rest or respite

Wanders his mind in unbound flight

Then greets his dad with hugs and kisses

Tosses his child up, and then he catches

Fearless, the child gives a zealous call

He knows his father won’t let him fall

He laughs without fear, tension or grief

So strong is the faith; so firm the belief

I stand and watch; the marvel of nature

And try to to peak into his distant future

Will he not lose the carefree face?

Will he withstand the mean world’s embrace?

Will clouds of fear not question his faith

When he encounters the unjust’s wraith?

Will he be able to smile as I could

In my own; lost childhood?

Festival of Light; Not So Bright


 

The city decorated as a bride

Millions of faces gleaming with pride

Each home twinkling with light

Never seen the city so bright

But emotions in my heart fade

It seems deserted and betrayed

 

Birds which sing, Birds which dance

Announce the festival well in advance

The morning dew on a solitary leaf

Watches the people’s growing belief

In a season when happiness flows

Why is my heart in such a low?

The songs on the radio, out in the streets

Greets the people whom it meets

Reminding us of the same old day

When a king returned from exile, they say

On a day when people meet with gratitude

Why does my heart seek solitude?

 

Sweets are made, distributed when people meet

Why does today’s sugar, not taste so sweet?

A spoon of love; a pinch of care

I think is what may relieve me from despair

A little smile, a drop of tear

An emotion no word can bear

Oh Mother! I will miss you the whole night

To day the festival of light is not so bright.

Happy Diwali to all
