The Worth of an education

January 4, 2015 § Leave a comment

I dreamt of an invasion

Ill treatment of my intellect

No sense of my education

De barred from freedom

I dreamt of an invasion

Respect of my intellect

My thoughts as a tool

A support to empower people.

Fate’s child

What shall I say to you love

My love, you have started to quote poetry.

I am astonished, confused and sent to heaven and hell, love.

Was that in my memory or for a new love?

 

I have been indulging in futile acts, love.

Acts without you are futile to life

Your absence left my practicality to work.

But how does it matter, when I have my personal wife?

 

How we may love what we get?

When what we want, never stays ours.

Abide by duty and follow thy path.

Let fate decide our stars.

Then happy those whom Fate, that is the stronger,
Together twists their threads, & yet draws hers the longer.

Jee le

Kyu mar mar ke jee raha hai bande

Aaja aaj saas bhar le

Kis aur chale jaa raha hai

Tere jeene ki wajah kya hai?

 

Kyu roz charkha chala raha hai bande?

Kya khoya aur kya paaya hai tune?

 

Zindagi yoonhi beet jayegi

laapata ye rut suhani phir na ayegi

Kyu mar mar ke jee raha hai bande

Aaja aaj ab toh pyaar kar le

Aaja aaj ab toh saas bhar le

Nothing to lose

Mera koi wajood nahi

Mujhe dhoond rahe ho kaha

Ghar bhi ab ghar nahi

Bas raste hai yahaan

 

Manzil ab door nahi

koi cheez ka darr nahi yahaan

mera koi wajood nahi

Mujhe dhoond rahe ho kaha?

Work

So you know at the day’s end

When the leaves cripple and the night begins.

Work

When the sun goes down, the people come pouring in…

the lobbies, buses, cars and trains.

Everyone comes rushing out

Out, to go into their homes again.

 

At the day’s end, when life’s past.

Back at school as at the start.

Finding ourselves seated in closed rooms.

Cabinating lives, forgetful wives.

Eye to eye.

Bounded lives.

 

I ask to be aware of the day’s end

When the leaves cripple

and the night starts to begin.

Eternal Episode

You know how this goes

In the wake of the dawn, my love rose

You struck the pointed end at it

But the rays of the sun got no pain

Unlike the flesh of the man with all blood drained

 

I moved across the crowed hall with all eyes on me.

Their questioning gaze fell again and again

On the beast inside me loving

 

It was a pity you found it a waste

You lost all love I offered then

My offer has died its natural death

Leaving you as you pleased

But remember even the beast felt

And the sun doesn’t extinguish easily.

 

Eruptions into the perfect life

The day broke out today

Not as good as yesterday

I breathe life into things which went out of sight

I knocked at those deep buried feeling inside

The blast busted

Nothing felt good in any way

 

I walked numb to the feelings around

Breathing. But just breathing in and out

I halted mid way

Thinking about all the things I needed to say

Those never uttered thoughts

Lost in the ocean of purposeless ways

 

It felt good to be alive

But I was better off dead

Things carry carry on

My way

Just my way didn’t feel right at some point

 

Now am bound by my alien satisfaction

New things causing reaction

Building this hopeless anticipation

Bleeding out all the relations

Where Am I?
