Time

They said,
“Change all that you desire
But make yours better first
Be and then build”

I looked them in the eye
So blinded by ‘money’
their vision of life
end to every misery

I might quit everything
and change my situation
become something people yearn
earn and be in luxury

But would that money,
that free time
bring back the child
famished?

Would that cure wounds
the stray dog died of?
Would it bring smile on face
the child that sought help?

Building future was phenomenal
but, somewhere living in future
they asked me to overlook
the destruction that happened today!

Towards Destiny

Spring
Growth
Buds
Expected Flowers

Beautiful Bloom
Colours
Joy to eyes
A Smile

A Marriage
A Florist
Decorations
Death

A Journey
A Bouquet
A Bride
Fate!

Restlessness

Breathing heavily
Dragging my feet along
running away…

Along, I carry a heavy heart
grieving
devastated

Plethora of emotions
I cry
my tears, prayers!

Bleak hope of forever
of belongingness
depth of an ocean

I try acquiring it all
a sky full of stars,
a dream glistering

I look back,
flashes
The essence of poetry

Though only a moment
it seems forever
a dream cherished, well lit!
