“We live in swagger
on the broad corridors of life.
It gives birth
to the root cause of strife.

Strife, with self
in the mirage of fake manhood.
Manhood which is showy and
far away from sainthood.

Climb the success ladder and
stay away from the dagger of swagger.
Else, it will give an incurable wound with scars.
Which will destroy your fortune in the bog of coal tar."__________

“O The Eternal !

We would like
to be merged
into the earthly water.

Where exists -
soothing, calm & tidal
waves of laughter.

in the form of
tiny drops of rain.

Which when
It touches the
barren land -

Quenches thirst
and takes away
the worldly pain."__________

“Those golden memories
exists till now.
Which we remember
and happily say wow!

When the
beautiful canary
of childhood existed
in the alluring islands of the past.

Her chirp
mesmerized us.
At present,
which we lost.

Its agile eyes
used to search
those pink flowers
of nectar.

Which were blooming
in the calm lake
and acted as
an eternal effector.

The cruel jaws
of maturity
have snatched
those wings.
we easily
do believe
in showy things.

Have you ever remembered
those childhood days -
Where's the childish craze?
Where's the catchy image?

Where are those sweet chirps?
Where's the flowery lake?
Where's the eagerness of the birthday?
Where's the taste of those cakes?"__________
