Dawn …

s

With slow edgy steps

The night retreats

From the mortal world,

The expanse of her darkness

Ebbing out

With a poignant calm;

Diminishing bit by bit

With every tick of the clock:-

As the deadpan stillness

Adorning the nocturnes

Turns out to be

An ephemeral phenomenon

Soon to be ended

By the serene avian chirps

Reverberating the horizon across

To herald the moment of truth …

The veiled lady

Blushing with innocence,

Breathing the light of life,

Emerges from the dark depths

Of her tainted predecessor

As she bestows,

With a divine sincerity,

Freshness to the morning air,

Fervency to the quiescent waters,

Energy to the soul of mankind,

Hope to countless hearts!

The start of another voyage;

Another spin of the wheel of life;

And once done,

With smooth eloquence,

She lifts her veil up

And amalgamates into her successor …

Her transient self

Mingled in daylight.

A new day has come …

A new day has come …

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!

Oh Childhood!

That unabashed exuberance!

The eloquent zest that blossomed out of my soul:-

Bathed in the ecstasy unknown,

The frolicking fun-loving gambol!

Yes it was me, oh yes! Oh yes!

Years and years ago

The pure and divine childhood,

The innocence in eternity stowed …

Even a bit of it left no more!

 

Dozing off to the favorite lullaby-

Oh it’s a vague memory echoing inside!

The crayons and the coloring books are

Somewhere in the attic, dust-eaten bonafide

Authenticating my years of enfance!

Chasing butterflies in the garden

Running around without an iota of tension

That knocks around every now and then

As I look back to the days of innocence!

 

Memories of my childhood

You’re the ode to my deliverance!

As age eats away my youth,

The reminiscences indulge in sweet offence:-

Happiness and sadness come conjoined,

I reflect, I smile and I cry in solitude!

No more neighborhoods to intrude:-

No more childlike divinity to exude:-

As I stand neck-deep into adulthood!

Heaven

Have you ever dared to hope?

That this earth would one day turn

Into a paradise, so beautiful

Life would be a spectacle in this heaven.

 

Have you ever dared to imagine?

That peace would be omnipresent;

No more innocent blood to shed,

No one to kill, no one to resent!

 

These hopes, these dreams

Embedded in my human heart

Make me strongly believe

As our world falls apart

From all the vile and the vices

That no matter what

Someday, goodness will have the last laugh

As afresh we would all start

And make this world a heaven…

 

Have you ever dared to dream?

That love would be the only religion

As people all across the world

Would share and care and unite as one.

 

Have you ever dared to envision?

That no one will die of hunger;

Riches will no longer be luxury of few:-

The curse of poverty won’t be there anymore!

 

These hopes, these dreams

Embedded in my human heart

Make me strongly believe

As our world falls apart

From all the vile and the vices

That no matter what

Someday, goodness will have the last laugh

As afresh we would all start

And make this world a heaven…

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!
