Unwarranted Bloodline!

Those golden moments you’ve been waiting for

Slip away in a wink of an eye!

Wishing everything would fall into place

When sanity bids goodbye

From your life and its pandemonium

Although so hard you do try

To hold back all that’s good around you

You can’t and you fail to realize why?

 

Welcome aboard,

You’re the newest member of this world of doom!

Look around and you’ll find many like you loom

Haplessly; aimlessly; we’re one of a kind!

We are but His unwarranted bloodline!

 

Putting up a brave face,

As everyday a part of you dies.

So much rage, so much anger

But all you do is curse and cry!

Positivity seems like a farce!

Success seems like a lie!

Did anyone ever tell you?

That you’re just an unlucky guy!

 

Welcome aboard,

You’re the newest member of this world of doom!

Look around and you’ll find many like you loom

Haplessly; hopelessly; we’re one of a kind!

We are but His unwarranted bloodline!

The Beggar

A shapeless grubby bowl,

Picked up from the garbage,

Is the sole companion

Of his slovenly soul

Discarded by the goodness

That defines humankind,

Along with the tattered remains

Of fabric wrapped around

His filthy cold body,

Aged, crippled!

Haplessly he stares:-

Every moment of his bloody existence,

In severe expectation

At every pedestrian

Who passes by

Awaiting that glorious instant

When a coin would be flung

At his despicable self

Staggering in woe

At despair’s behest!

And at days’ end-

When he can barely manage

To satisfy his

Insatiable hunger …

He looks up at the sky

With tear soaked eyes!

And he begs for his salvation!

To be at peace forever

Renouncing this curse of a life,

Wretched and deplorable:-

He closes his eyes

Hoping not for a better but for

No tomorrow,

Only to wake up

At the sound of the honking horns

And the raging glares of the summer sun!

His fight for survival begins;

The inevitable life takes its course;

How much more can he endure …

Inconsequential, as right there

The beggar begs on

The corner of the road,

Lost and forlorn,

All day long!
