Canvas

Life canvas
You throw some colours
glitter and ribbons
make it sparkle
Happiness roams free
Soon after
you turn off the lights
Put it in storage
with all other garbage
Like a fake
Christmas tree!!

In the tunnel again

After a long time
I entered that tunnel again
Memories are not very kind
Squishing you under their boots
Planted thousand trees without fruit
And my heart was the cheap loot
Was trampled on, crushed uncountable times
Till there was satisfaction, clock chimes
Thirteen and fifth quarter of the hour
Tears replaced water in the shower
Guards ready to fatally shoot from the tower
When I escape emotions prison
with million justifiable reasons
still considered life ending treason
I am forced to enter that tunnel again
And I cry uncontrollably on the first step
No one to console, just me and darkness
lack of colours, mind’s starkness
and ignoring, unobserving, faceless passerby
Unable to lie, to myself or any of you

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

Colour of your eyes

Scene never changes

Perhaps ever so slightly

Weather does, mostly

It could be hot or cold

Clouds, sun behold

Snow just scolds

Torrential rain, be bold

Step outside and sing

Whatever the day brings

Never pay attention

to custom and convention

Take down barriers

Returns all couriers

with bland, bad news

Sadness you can refuse

Put happiness in shot fuse

rejoice, entice

all around you,

Love, laughter to bind you

together, forever in a merriment chain

so what, if today is terrible rain

Sun will eventually come out

Smiles will eventually return

People will ultimately have fun

Demons will actually run

away, far, beyond north star

And finally, just on the last day

before judgment is upon us

I can see colour of your eyes

Deep blue, showing pure, true

worth of life, living and love</p>

 

Substitute

Pushing, shoving
punch that face
Blood, gore
Untamed race
Hit for a ball
Drill for a ball
Fit for a ball
even kill for a ball
Strength sapping
Mighty fall
Millions cry
for a mere try
What is this, humanity
Unfettered insanity
No! It the game
warrior spirit to tame
can’t kill sapiens now
can drown them in shame
