Be Thankful


Between the moon rise and the sunrise
What does happen in the mid, transpires?
So just because you wake to another day,
Do you think its because you have it your way?
Be thankful!

From the roof that protects you above your head
And the clothes that cover you all over
Do you think, to all this , you’re entitled?
to all the sinfully tasty food, and leftovers?
Be thankful!

As you take every step out to your garden
And the starkly pure morning breeze
The dewdrops, on the leaves, they’ve fallen
While yellows and greens, dance on the leaves
Do you think these colors are yours to love?
Be thankful!

As you return to your haven, after a hard day’s work
And you soak in the loving smiles and kind words
If not for all this love, affection,and hugs
One would definitely go berserk
Be thankful!

For every breath
For every moment 
For every experience
For every joy
For every sorrow
For every instant of inspiration and wisdom

Be thankful!

Uncomfortably numb


For this week’s 3ww

How I wish these blows were limited
Whilst I bounce back and forth
I rise, I fall
Oh, the wonder of it all …

From the black to the white
From the good to the bad
Things may seem solid, they might
But sadly, they both do end

Our lives funnel through the filter of time
Our desires, our wishes, our failures
They sift through the gaps of the fingers
Our existance , measly, smidge, not worthwhile

These invisible flecks we are
amidst the plethora sans limitations
I feel my senses heighten
A drain through my emotions

Through the aggresive brickbats
and the fragrant bouquets
As long as I find my inner void
I will be okay

I wish the moment arrives
When I am immune to this facade
When this unreal existence fades
For the only truth is – nothingness
