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!

The Gardener

Image

She nursed it with her own hands

The garden attired with roses red

Dripping with the freshness she sowed

The freshness that defined her soul!

The lavenders and the rosemary-s

The chamomiles bathed in their divine yellow

And white, and the coneflower her favorite

With all the purple garnered in it …

She nurtured, she cared, o sweet mother

Taking care of her children

She shared a bond with them one of a kind …

She couldn’t just leave them behind:-

So there she lies with them all

Guarded by her delphinium

With the lilies watching over her,

She rests beneath the silent veneer

Of the garden of love she wove,

The heaven on earth she instilled!

Hallowed mother rests in peace,

As the drops of rain fondles

Her beloved flowers, blossoming with elan!

Her Hesperides garden, so beautiful!

She silently watches over them …

She silently watches with them …

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…

Reality or Pessimism? … or maybe just a Simple Realization!

There are times when I close my eyes and think

Feels like I’m staring at my shadow without a blink.

Lost in its emptiness profound

As in my fears I get drowned!

All the thoughts that plague my inner self-

What have I done with my life … oh please tell!

Did I dare to dream or did my feet tremble

Or was I wrapped in my own world like a frog in the well!

Unaware of the truth that drives the world.

The truth that brave-hearts in their lives unfurl.

The truth that’s evergreen like a drop of dew:-

The one that says – chase your dreams till they come true!

 

In this life that never seemed to be of any good!

The violence that ravaged my dear childhood.

Setbacks were too many to stand on my two feet.

An agonizing lot I did try, I really did.

Nothing is good enough when the glory seems light years away!

The silent routine of trying hard and waiting for my day.

And as failure decayed the hopes of rejuvenation

The mind played games over this hopeless situation

Weakening me to the core as I fell on my face

Am I a loser, a no-good, a disgrace?

It was that moment when I couldn’t but rue

No matter how much you chase, some dreams don’t come true!
