End the Struggle!!

Come up, why are you hiding behind your soul
What fear resides within you and since how long?
When you dared to travel so far.
Now why, you are wearing so much hesitation?
Shed it all, right here in front of me.
Leave nothing behind, for you to drag.
Pull up the sleeves and stare back hard and strong.
Let the world know at once, that you are back.

When I set my mind free

I am glad that today I have time for all this. Time to entertain both of us, but maybe one day I will be done with all this and on that day, while sitting alone at my desk, having nothing to occupy myself, maybe on that day I will set you (my mind) free and then wait for you to return, with stories, adventures, shame or joy.

I will listen patiently to all your tales like a abandoned old man who has nothing to do for. Maybe I will ask questions, maybe sometime I would like to know all in detail, or maybe I will accept your short quirk replies. All will be done as per your wish, as you know I have nothing to do or say.

But I do wonder, what will you bring back to me, when I set you free? Will you confront me with new stuff, or will you be happy to linger around my old memories? I wonder what will be his choice?

I guess, he will be comfortable in my pile of past memories, but then I don’t want that stuff. I want something new, fresh and alive. Something which will pump adrenalin in my old veins, which will make my heart weep profoundly either in pain or happiness or make me dance in joy. I want him to gift me bliss.

Questions – once again???

I have a question, in fact a lot of them.

Where can I find answers for all of them?

Lots have been written. Lots have been studied

Many answers were new and most parodied.

I understand the questions, but not the answers.

I understand my delirium, but not my mind’s grotesque caricature.

I have the need, but not the substantial purpose.

So maybe I hesitate and not look audacious.

Maybe I am thinking a lot, maybe not.

Maybe everyone around me, expect me, have lost the plot.

This uneasiness have gripped and consumed me for a while.

Every moment I live, I look, I stare and I have lost my smile.

When and how long, I don’t know yet.

But maybe one day, very soon I will get.

All the answers, all the replies and all the justifications.

I may then, close my eyes and renounce my emanation.

IN MY WORLD

Today is fine and so will be tomorrow,

In my dream land, it’s only happiness and no sorrow.

No don’t even think of quitting this place.

Nowhere else, you will find peace and solace.

 

Yes I made up all, on my own,

No one is stranger here, everyone is known.

Perfection have no place, neither does greed.

Everyone is judged here by their deeds.

 

When everyone around us, is running in race.

Why should we too, lets vanish without a trace.

Yes we will compete too, with zeal & enthusiasm.

But none here will be applauded for their triumph.

 

Life is all, and all is nothing.

Laugh merrily, and give up everything.

Possession, Aspiration, Competition.

All are mere, beneath your inspiration.

 

Come get inspired and create something new.

You are one among the gifted few.

Let your talent get unfold on my canvas.

Don’t just be a mere unit number on their census.

Convenience

It is convenient to say no,
Rather than saying yes and sticking till end with your commitment.
It is convenient to be atheist,
Rather than believing in God and seeking hard your enlightenment.
It is convenient to be a hypocrite,
Rather than practicing what we arrogantly preach.
It is convenience, that we

seek and cherish,

Rather than facing the brutal, harsh truth.

HOW LONG SHOULD I WAIT ?

It has been eternity now my love, how long should I wait?

Ages passed and still I am awake.

Eyes long, for your one glimpse

Soul shivers, for your one smile.

You and me, have been apart for a while now.

When will it end? And I don’t know how.

I hope you are waiting for me, far away from me.

I hope you are crazy for me, the way I am.

Love was sweet then, and I hope it remains so.

Let time not wither and turn it sober.

Water it, and caress it for a while my dear

Very soon, I promise we will be facing each other.

Glasses are tinted of my window and so in my vision.

Bones crumble and are brittle from last  winter.

Wrinkles are the main features of my face.

Heart sighs with every breath.

Love on the contrary is, and will remain young.

Memories are still well kept and polished.

This world is narrow and so is the time.

We will face our destiny in next world, sometime.

MY MIND

Nothing I have now, nothing is left.
All is empty and nothing is unkept.
All is drained and filled with silence.
My mind as a void, is guarded by thorny fence.
Yes it has nothing, but still it resist,
Keeps away all better thoughts and exist.
Trembles my heart and makes it wither.
Nothing, nothing I do makes him suffer.
Drowsy and stubborn it lays in his lair
Deprives me, my gifted charisma and flair.
Yes it is mine and I need it now the most
Life is tough and time is worst.
I survive, you survive my friend
Keep apart all your games and let me lend.
All my talent, all my will power.
I need it at once for his blessings to shower.
Come and be with me, don’t be stubborn.
Yes you had your way, now let’s together learn.
Learn the purpose of life, learn the meaning
Learn how to face the sun up above shining
That’s it my mate, come and embrace
I spread my arms, just stand up and face.
You and me, nothing else matters.
Neither of us is salve, nor is anyone master.
