Words

Posted on Updated on


She looked into his eyes
But couldn’t express the feelings that she had deep inside
Her life was going on just fine
Till he casually looked at her and smiled

She meant to tell him how much he mattered in her life
But she could not find the right words that would express her emotions just right
As he walked away from her sight, her heart cried –
My words will never mean anything to you, as much as I try
Yours, on the other hand, give meaning to my life

Route to the top

Route to the top

Little boy doesn’t know why
As much as he tries
He just can’t reach the sky
He climbs the tallest buildings
He rows his boat hoping to reach the place
Where the sea meets the sky
But the sky eludes him
He doesn’t know why, just doesn’t know why

Finally as he gives up and cries
An old man finds him with tears in his eyes
And says, Little boy tell me please tell me why
Why do you keep running after the sky
What is sky, but a blanket for you and I
If you looking for path to reach to the top
As he touches the boy’s heart, he says
The answer lies here, deep inside…

The story of two silly monkeys

The story of two silly monkeys

Two silly monkeys – one fat, one thin
Worked in a circus but all they did was grin
When their turn came to perform
And entertain the crowd
The monkeys did not perform
And left amidst the boos of the crowd

They blamed it on the stage
And the lack of comfort it gave
And how the music was too loud
Which caused them to frown

They cribbed night and day
And complained instead of doing the work the owners gave
Ultimately the silly monkeys were shot
Circus owners considered them a blotch

Two silly monkeys – one fat, one thin
Ended their lives, the fat one thrown in the gutter and the thin one in a bin
The story of two silly monkeys should teach us all
To do their tasks properly or be prepared to be shot

Choices

Why do you want to fight when you can give up and just cry?
Why do you want to resist when its easy to accept and lead a peaceful life?
Why strive for excellence when mediocrity is ok and just fine?

Is it a man making these choices
Or are your choices making you a man?

Mother’s Love

Mother’s Love

As she looked at him and cried
Bringing out the feelings buried deep inside
But it seems no one would understand
Her little child had transformed into a beast that the society could not stand
So he has been asked to go
To a world where his sins can be atoned
But who can stop the mother from crying
Pouring out her love for the child from deep inside

Smiles to give before I weep

Smiles to give before I weep

Who caused these wounds I think I know.   
His memory lives in my heart though;   
He will not know I am thinking about him   
To feel his wounds fill my heart and grow.   

My little mind must think it queer   
To think about him without him being near   
And feeling the wounds and the frozen heart   
The darkest evening of the year.   

The mind gives heart a little shake   
To ask if there is some mistake.   
The only other sound’s the weep   
Of shattered heart and broken dreams .   

The wounds are painful, dark and deep.   
But I have promises to keep,   
And smiles to give before I weep,   
And smiles to give before I weep.

(Adapted from – Stopping by Woods on a Snowy Evening By Robert Frost)

Trust

A young boy looks at the blind man
Who’s trying to cross the road if he can
Blind man is tense and scared
As the cars speed by and their horns blared

Boy approached the man and said
I’ll help you out old man, don’t you dread
The traffic on the road right now is heavy
But don’t you worry
Together we’ll cross the road and you’ll be on your way safely

The blind man feels relieved and smiled
Thanks the god for this caring child
The boy grabs the man’s hand
And together they start to cross the road
As they reach the middle he saw
His sweetheart who’s looking frantically for him, deep in her thought
In his excitement he leaves the blind man and ran
To his girlfriend who’s waiting for him as per their plan

The blind man suddenly notices the absence
Of the young boy, and begins to feel tense
Worried about the speeding cars
He stumbles as he senses them coming to him speeding from afar

But then something in him gives him confidence
To cross the road, he trusts his instincts and god’s providence
So what if the young boy has left him mid way
He has his learning, instinct and god’s support to find his own way …
