Memories of Farewell Songs

Memories of farewell songs

Pour down like gentle rain.

Wash off our sins and wrongs

And make us what we were again!

**

Be a bit more than frivolous nostalgia

Stuck in this vicissitude of life: –

We don’t have our visions clear

Gasping for breath in this hopeless strife!

**

Those days when we sang with no fear,

The iron resolves we wore as crowns-

Now like fallen kings in disarray so sheer,

We’re going down in leaps and bounds !

**

In the sea of broken glass

We stand bloodied to the core.

Doomed in the abyss of hell,

We’re so very far from shore.

**

And tears trickle down our eyes

As the songs hit our senses

The ones we sang while we bid goodbye

Hoping to make it big immense!

**

In the race to the pinnacle

We so lost our way!

What we set out to achieve

Never saw the light of the day!

**

And as we walk down the memory lane

We brush the dust from our suits so grey …

Still we raise a toast to our glory days again,

We live to fight another day!

Awaken!

No matter how far we go

With so much hatred below

They pull us down, uncouth goons!

The parody of civilization looms.

At large, as we keep on waiting

For something good to happen, stinking

As it is the social apathy spreads

Like a mad wild disease.

Never have we witnessed

Our morality so hard pressed!

Humanity is a farce!

A rarity, frivolous and sparse

No we’re not standing up-

Hands are bound, mouths shut up.

We are buying dresses, eating burgers

As our society limps along the corners

Of a deadly abyss of hell

So black, no one can tell

The extent of its ruthlessness

As we pity on our helplessness.

Moral urge has gone down the drain,

Contented, we celebrate our impotence!

How did so badly we fare?

Didn’t anybody try, didn’t anybody care?

There should have been a burning agony

Gutting our rotten hearts, forcing us to try

But even the widespread sense of ennui

Has failed to stir us up as our children cry

Hurt by the social degeneration

So much of calumny, hate and pain;

They are like trash, like a bloody stain

Polluting the very essence

Of life and it’s indomitable spirit

That has kept us alive even if it’s just a bit.

Maybe the time has come to act:-

Break the shackles and react.

Let all that’s bad around be washed away.

Let our hearts be mighty again and may

The power in our soul obliterate

The social vices plaguing ourselves and rejuvenate

Us; A good life fraught with good deeds

Blessed with the ability to cater to simple needs

The ailing society will blossom again,

Harder and harder we’ll try, no it can’t go in vain!

Let peace swallow up all the hatred!

Let the moral corruption be eradicated!

With our fists pumping up as we stand

In this neck-deep muck of vile around,

We vow to make the world a better place;

Love and peace, humanity and solace;

We hope, we can and together we sure will-

Goodness to bestow, heaven to instill!

Antidote!

Lost in my melancholy world

I write again with a poignant endeavor…

These haphazard words of rhythm

Are but weird enticing metaphors

Portraying the raging pandemonium

Inside my mind, inside my heart:-

Engulfing with competence my sanity

As a monument of ambiguity I stand to part

My ephemeral happiness

With its audacious momentary glory,

I cogitate its reality and the poet in me

Weaves the words into a story,

Gibberish to the world approprié!

A hopeless rant to all those

Super perfect human beings

Renouncing the outburst I chose!

Surprised, I suddenly realize:-

The key to my deliverance lies here!

Pouring out my emotions through scribbles

As the crisis in my head nears,

For a final showdown in the world of bedlam:-

I write to save myself, the only hope

In this fettering world of negativity;

The nectar that’s keeping me alive, my precious, my antidote!

The Gibberish … (is it?)

The crimson eyes flickered like a warning siren

An ill omen, the menacing eyes of fate

Before my senses had the power to react

The glare died away, and I felt betrayed

Of the reality and the rationality

I was so proud of, the procrastination

Of my wisdom and my sanity

As I failed to realise what was going on

And it was dark again in the abyss of emptiness.

I was silent as my heart skipped a beat

Drenched in cold sweat I was scared!

I could sense the evil around me

Surreptitious and merciless,

Waiting to pounce upon the prey

As it lurked ominously in the binge!

The silence hurt me, I perspired like a pig,

It was the silence before the storm, before the wild rampage.

I prayed and I prayed and I prayed

As I was a prisoner at despair’s behest

Nothing seemed real, a mystifying mayhem

Bewilderment merged with incomprehensible fear:-

I don’t want to die; I don’t want to get hurt;

Alas! I was but in a fight with myself!

My inner self full of negativity and velleity

That had held me back, as I hopelessly rued:-

I was but blind, as my fears overpowered me

Like a filthy old demon ravaging

The innocence of a sweet little kid!

The abyss was my ignorance;

The darkness came from within;

I was the frog in the well!

I was the creator of the hell!

And as I gaze up now, a steep climb

Awaits me en route to my fight for my existence

Killing the fear, the crimson eyed monster

Tearing apart the despicable me from me

Will undoubtedly be something not easy!

Showering the darkness with light

Rejuvenation is on the cards,

But then I am bound by time!

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!
