Did We Change?


Over the years“, that is a cliche’ for sure! But it has really been years and there is no other better way to start it.

Time has just rolled on like a ball all the way down to the ground from the hill.

Here I’m the ball and the hill represents the people. 

And there is the time that smiles at me with a smirk.

The path that stands in between me and the hill is the “Change“.

The ball carried a few stones, leaves and dust with it.

And I consider the stones, leaves and dust as my treasures.

Did we change?

That wasn’t just a poem. It had a story in it. Here, I’m referring “we” as you, me, us, the reader, and anyone whom we can connect to.

Yes we did change. We are bound to change as time goes on. Suddenly, we feel that the things that looked great before, are not great anymore. Mind you! It is just a feeling. And the things that looked awful once looks cool now.

Ah ha…

What has happened to us now. Did we change?

Yes, I think we have changed. Time has a penchant to make us feel that people around us have changed.

But the reality is that we have changed.

It is a good feeling to know that life has really changed. Even my writing has changed over the years. My words have changed. And so is the world.

My feelings have changed. My outlook has changed. My priorities have changed. My life has changed.

When you read this, do you feel that you have changed, when you look back? If so, do comment on…

Calling Poets for Peace


Words are scarce to describe this turmoil,
When thousand innocents bleed,
Our hearts are torn down,
When the little ones weep,
Our eyes bleed tears.

Words are scarce to describe this turmoil,
When the world cries for help,
Our knees tremble with fear,
When the children lie lifeless,
Our humanity is questioned for its ruthlessness.

Words are scarce to describe this turmoil,
When the souls depart,
Our hearts seek peace,
When the world searches for peace,
Our world calls all poets for peace…

This is written for the initiative of Michael at http://thepoetrychannel.wordpress.com as part of a collaboration with #PoetsForPeace, which is hosted in https://forgottenmeadows.wordpress.com/2016/07/16/calling-all-poetscreative-minds-to-a-grand-collaboration-poets-for-peace/.

The Disagreement Between Mind and Heart


Said the Heart with broken bones,

Hey Mind, you are too cruel.

Grinned the Mind with a sarcastic tone,

Sorry Heart, but you couldn’t endure the ordeal.

Listen Mind, you must slow down your pace,

As the cocktail of emotions are killing me.

My heart is feeble to catch up with this unending race,

As the cocktail of mixed feelings are draining me.

 Listen Mind, it takes seconds for you to erase the memories,

Just seconds to shift your attention to the future.

But my Heart is tied up to the ropes of miseries,

Doubtful about the possibility of the closure.

Listen Heart, try to fix the wrinkles of life,

By accepting the reality with open eyes.

Try to cut the ropes of miseries with the diamond knife,

As it’s time to look at the skies.

The Power and Aftereffects of Guilt


Who's Guilty?

Who’s Guilty? (Photo credit: Wikipedia)

Guilt – What can it do to people?

If people are found guilty, they undergo a battle between their heart and the present. The guilt takes their lives to a different level. The aftereffects of guilt varies with individuals.

For a few, guilt makes them to think wisely and be cautious. They begin to live life differently. For certain people, guilt offers them another opportunity to live a worthy life. They begin to live rather than to exist merely.

There are a few, who start to love someone truly, forget someone completely, end their own life through suicide, ask forgiveness, kill someone and many more. Guilt can do anything to anyone. That’s why a guilty person is vulnerable.

But there are a few who think about someone every day and live their life gracefully. In this case of people, they are still guilty. However, they know that life has to go on.

Guilt is hiding in everyone’s heart. Most people don’t accept it. Guilt is seen throughout the history from men to women. Guilt is passed on from generations to generations from great people to laymen.

In the end, guilt changes people to human beings as they learn the meaning of emotions and heart.

It Kills You Like Hell…


When you have the words to say,
When you have the time to say those words,
When you have the heart to say those words,
When you give your complete self into those words,
When you find the person you love in those words,
But it kills you like hell,
When you don’t have the person you love to hear those words…
It kills you like hell…
