Then there was light!

Darkness all around
Devils are abound
Soul searching for redemption
All lost, nothing was found
First word was written
Evils deeply smitten
Human gave them fright
And there was light!
In heavens, on earth
ending good deeds dearth
Showing humanity’s best
Putting faiths to test
Reaching beyond colour creed
billion mouths to feed
the Moment has arrived,
Let cruelty bleed,
Sow kindness seed,
This is where you lead!

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

Where are your gods now (a tale)

An evil emperor of foreign lands
one day docked on calmer waters
Scorched the earth destroyed greens
Butchered animals, enslaved people

Then put them under his boots and screamed
Tell me where are your gods now
One child had the courage
No fear in those deep black eyes

Looked at him and simply said
If you keep doing this, you will be dead
Emperor got angry took boy to task
Got his sword and tell him to ask

For forgiveness to his mighty sin
Child was fearless, replied with a grin
If you can’t make me do what I am told
Think how much power you really hold

Humanity is not here because gods made it so
Fortitude, courage, desire to grow
These same people, you pillage and ruin
If had a good heart their souls you can win

Power you crave is nothing more than a dream
The day you are weak, you will die in screams
Adopt humanity and live amongst us
You will be remembered, immortality thus

Quite unbelievable, emperor took his advice
Released all people, gave them back their lands
Begged forgiveness, for his torture and his vice

If a child’s fortitude, can get a nation through
What are you waiting for,
Go for your dream, make it true!

Existence

Happiness could do us a favour
Instead it burns in flames
Whatever we have done to ourselves
Emotions stare, hide in shame
Pride look at us in disdain
There is no one else to blame
A simple smile is enough of a proof
Existence we can claim
But don’t. Torture is required
Assassinations, murder is required
Screams, nightmares,
Obscene materialistic
Hallucinations are required
When will we learn!20140529-090530 am-32730165.jpg

Greetings

I am nearly dearly here
Another beautiful day
Another amazing morn
Sapiens will wake up
New ideas will be born
Trees, flowers, orchids
Gardens will be adorned
Just for a moment
When you have one
Think life without me
Tell me what you see
winter, spring, summer or fall
morning run or evening ball,
flower beds, trees so tall,
bird tweets and cockerel call,
Nothing?…you say nothing at all

Funeral of the last butterfly

I was invited
to the funeral
of the last butterfly
All the birds were there
Insects made a wreath
Queen bee sung a melancholy
Grief too great to bear
Colours already left
Now the last butterfly gone
Everyone felt so lonely
Earthlings were alone
Far away in the sky
a thunder cloud
lightning strike,
a Phoenix flew in
Tears in its eyes,
sprayed on butterfly wings
Butterfly come to life
In all our hearts
Light of her soul
removed despair
Humanity wake up
When would you care
Planet is for all
We have to share
Might won’t work
win if we dare
Extinction of plants
Insects, animals all admire
Greenery in gardens
Fields and shire
Everything could go
If we don’t spare
Consume less,
Don’t scare
Nature, heavens
Water, our own air
Wind may blow
So does rain
Last butterfly
may flutter again
I wish, hope and pray
