Humanity – the book

The current civilisation of Human species has come a long way in the last five thousand years. The technology is mesmerising, architecture astounding and knowledge is touching nebulae and far flung galaxies. Our values however are perhaps not showing same level of progress. There is continuous war and hunger. Inequality is increasing every moment, pursuit of wealth has made most of us blind from the misery of our brethren living just few moments away from us. Environment is a concern for the tree hugging minority only. Destruction of forests, extinctions of wildlife species and increasing temperatures globally is a commonality not even worthy of daily news anymore. This age of individuality and trying to live life through social media has made our planet more ignorant, less tolerant and a troll infested realm. I hope, wish and pray that some of these terrible trends will reverse in the not so distant future and humanity snaps out of this current craze of abominable behaviour. This short book of poems and images try to highlight my humble observations in an abstract setting.

I will try to spread this message of compassion and equality until the time is upon me. Here is the latest instalment in the form of a book at IBOOks store (free)

Shame

(In the context of Catholic Church scandals from the near past, this is not supposed to disrespect the religion but the clergy who runs it and some unnatural rules creating immense psychological issues)

People on earth, look at me
Cross in my hand, authority
Words I speak, are words of God
Ignore your instincts, obey thee
Colour in my eyes, may be lecherous
Your time in church, will be treacherous
Pain you suffer, humiliation you incur
In the name of the Lord, we hit you hard
Altar boys, kneel before me
ignore my insanity, vanity, profanity
Nightmares you have, suicide you crave
I thought you understood
It for your own good,
Our desires need to be fulfilled
You were available,
So you were grilled
Don’t speak up, consequences dire
I will go higher, cardinal aspire
You move along too,
Try to live the life you want to
Throw your empty soul in the bin
I will beg forgiveness for my sins
That is quite fair, church bells ringing
Time for my prayer!!

Anthem of the oppressed

‘Chin up, fire in our eyes
Drumbeat of hearts
Roars of the lion
Here we go’

We are here, we are here
We are so bloody here
Do you hear
Oppressors
Do you hear
Dictators
Do you hear
Do you really really hear
our call for a battle
armed with pens
we advance to our homeland
Your heart will rattle
Yes, go ahead
Go ahead and ahead
Take out guns
On brave daughters
soil sons
Not a single soul will run
Perhaps
towards you only
How many will you kill?
We are here, we are here
We are so bloody here
TELL US
How many will you kill?
Graves will fill
Blood will spill
We keep coming still
Determined we are
Abomination we are
To you and your clan
Dust and ashes
Your best laid plan
To rule on our graves
You haven’t seen our braves
You won’t go far
will hunt you down
with our quills
They do kill,
They do kill
Do you hear
We are here, we are here
We are so bloody here,
Do you hear
Our mighty,
mighty quills,
They do kill,
your Ignorance
and of this world
Soon dawn arrives
Humanity survives
Air will clear
We will steer
Path to redemption
You will be
No way near
Do you hear
We are here, we are here
We are so bloody here
Do you hear

Danube

Oh mighty Danube speak to me
Tell me whereabouts of dear Count
Do you see him, is he still around?
I have been everywhere
in search for his sight
No single trace of him, nor his might
Dark marks on soft skins
of pure beauties and dames
If you see him
Give him my name
Desperately in need
That’s why I came
Too much suffering
my heart has a hole
Can he please bite me
and remove my soul
