Bridge to hell

Crossed through
heaven’s toll
Perplexed look by
hell’s troll
Purpose, visiting,
staying, alone
Burning hot lava,
on my own
Freewill granted,
afterlife fine
someone pushed
an angel or divine
explained reason,
to watch an old pal
burn in hell,
see the mighty fall
on the earth, king of all
desired to be worshipped,
summer or fall
maimed, tortured,
killed, quite a few
Life was short
he had no clue
now it is time
to pay his due

Purpose of life

It is so hot, and I wear a coat
attend all guests, clean the moat
smile in front, frown in the shade
could you imagine the life I had
day in, day out, clock tick tocks
Luck sits up a tree, jeers and mocks
old age coming soon, nothing to boast
none will remember, this chubby friendly host

Light

inspiration is everywhere
every breath is an opportunity,
to do more, to say something new,
soul renews, every morning every night,
dispel darkness, let there be light,
sweet or savoury, sumptuous delight,
wherever you look, beauty in sight
silence says nothing, words all the might
write and write, till dawn kisses your pen

Turnstile 

Each moment
Numerous arrival, departures
Sapiens and ants, similar
Names, traces of been here
Before, now, afterwards
Life, death, disease,
Sorrow, jubilation,
deep, shallow
Contraptions, contradictions
such is the daily rush
Brain is mush, and
time just passes
without regard to
wasted youth
blasted truth
how did I get here

Proud

Mighty heart beams
Happiness out of seams
A smile telling all
For a bundle so small
girl for a girl, it seems
most joyful being

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)

Humanity

Alone in a crowd

Feeling absolutely lonely
with hundreds around
Unspeakable conversations
Forgetful sounds
Life could have been better
if lived as a hermit
Jungles, dark deserts
No pretence, no permit
Animals real friends
Trees companions true
Winds carry wishes
Earth protecting you
