The Conscience Call!

All you social captives and hyper-actives,

Imprisoned by your routines and moral obligations,

Dazzled by the illusion of success,

Compelled to embark on the journey of money-making

As you scamper through the dashboard of life;

The civilized androids with a human heart …

The frenzied puppets in the rat race to the pinnacle,

Impetuous yet emotionless, suave yet curt:-

Please stop for a moment’s indulgence

And admire the beauty of this life!

The precious gift that you’ve been bestowed

To walk on this planet, alive and breathing!

Utter a vote of thanks to the ethereal master

And brush aside the conceit and the vanity

That instigates the megalomaniac in you

Greed to have more, so hopelessly rooted in you!

Close your eyes and feel the rhythm of life!

Sing and jive, live a moment without hassle and strife!

There’s a myriad of love around.

That can embellish your life and surround

You with solace and peace that you miss so much

As you perfect the feat of actuating your robotic life!

Hark,

As time impels itself with a vicious speed,

This is the pledge that is rising from your soul!

This is your much needed conscience call!

If Only …

If only I could tell you

How much I have lost!

If only I could tell you

What has been the dear cost

Of all the battles that I’ve fought

As I stand alone bereft

Of all the niceties that had once defined me:-

Would you take me for real?

 

If only I could tell you

The joy I feel when you’re near!

If only I could tell you

How much I hold you dear!

Words cannot define my feelings

That I have for you so sheer

The love bursting out of my fragile senses:-

Would you let me in just for once?

 

Alas! I cannot express and I don’t know why …

With all my earnest endeavors, I try and I try …

Cut me open and I bet you shall see:-

The one who loves you, the real me!

Give me your love, sweetheart, let it rain,

As I make my way to the final walk down the lane …

 

If only I could tell you

That I’m there only for few days;

If only I could tell you

The hole in my heart has got me swayed;

No matter how much money I pay

It can’t get fixed as I wait for the obvious …

Would you take me to your arms and kiss me once?

 

If only I could tell you

That every moment I crave to be with you!

If only I could tell you

My love’s as pure as a nascent drop of dew!

I want to share with you my deepest darkest fears;

I want to share with you my struggles through the years;

Life is short and I laugh at my predicament:-

Would you be by my side and let me live again?

 

Alas! I cannot express and I don’t know why …

With all my earnest endeavors, I try and I try …

Cut me open and I bet you shall see:-

The one who loves you, the real me!

Give me your love, sweetheart, let it rain,

As I make my way to the final walk down the lane …

Confessions of a Wounded Soul

Dreaded nightmares launch a scathing attack

On my subconscious craving dreams sweet!

There’s a lot of crash and burn around

Futile efforts to find peace, I can’t, not even a bit!

 

The clenching fists of depression

Bludgeon my senses with brutality profound,

Breaking the shackles seems impossible

In so much negativity I find myself drowned!

 

The failures of the past create a raging fire

Gutted emotionally, I am hopelessly fragile;

And I thought that my hopeful endeavors

Would keep me agile for an extra mile!

 

Baffled and bewildered, I plead to my creator.

That’s the only option left to me now.

The age old perception ingrained deep within the heart

That the ethereal savior would save me somehow!

 

Swimming up the dark depths of the abyss

That has engulfed my life to the fullest:-

Such a daunting proposition, as helpless I stand;

One last fight; I have to give my best.

 

The ruthless falls did break my back

But I refuse to die, I refuse to die!

A ray of hope, a hand of mercy …oh I so crave!

A brave-heart I’m not, but to hang on I’ll try!
