Congestion Inside

Sick, suffocating
The world looks so gloomy
With the congestion inside

Am I seeing clear blue skies
And fresh air soothing
The creatures outside?

Maybe I’ve built a barrier
Hindering the winds
To cleanse my inside

Angels are Working

Far from their families
For the sake of humanity
Angels are working
To keep the hopes alive

Hiding their bruises
Itching their burns
They are walking on embers
To keep the hopes alive

Gods among us
The sages of humanity
Sacrificing their lives
On the alter of humanity

Their stories will be told
Their tale of sacrifice
Forever they will be remembered
As Angels of humankind

(These Angels are Doctors, Health workers, officials and Bankers)

A Book’s Urge

Resting on a dusty shelf
Leading a life of a recluse
I am waiting for you
To uncover me and embrace

I’ve seen you come and go
Encapsulated in your struggles
Drenched and lost in your life’s web
Time has come to embrace me

In this state of Delirium
Pick me up and set me free
I will guide you towards light
I am your spiritual Ecstasy

Yes, don’t ignore me now
I am your delight, waiting
To be uncovered
On a dusty and humid shelf

Connecting virtually

We may not
Hold each other’s hands
We may not
Meet or greet
But there’s a way
We can feel
Through a divine connection
Across the oceans and seas
Let’s mourn together
For all the deaths
Against an invisible enemy
Let’s pray together
In this moment of solidarity
Yes we are connecting
Through our hearts
Electronically!

Stay safe everyone!

The Arrow of Entropy

Arrow of time
Pushing us forward to chaos
Our order is melting
With increasing disorder

Aging is difficult
With fears capturing our mind
A man becomes pessimist
With the ticking of clock

This is the law of nature
Law of science
Every system is bound
To collapse or Die

But we have the power
To delay this demon
With firing our love
And Cleansing with compassion

Your inner Battle

Your inner skirmish
Struggle against fears
Your crippling courage
Your Fight to wash blemish
May not see victory
May not witness light
But to flow with the cosmos
Is what made life.
So flow with wind
With your head
Held high
Ecstasy is the adventure
On the rough
Road of life

My Life, Our lives

My Life
An ordinary one
My thoughts
May not be significant
But still for those of you
Who think I’ve touched you
You are just like me
Pain, dejection, loss
Have hurt us
Sharing, empathy, love
Have overwhelmed us
Our defeats are small
Just a blink of cosmos
When we stood Bravely
Against the headwind
Our stories
Maybe forgotten with time
But if we live in the memories
Of a single life
Our purpose is fulfilled
