Restless me

August 24, 2009

Restless me

There is an uneasy calm in me
An emptiness
The heart heavy

And the brain foggy
The body runs faster
but without its soul

How long? How long?
Water leaves the eye
Vacuum fills the ear

The lips dry
and the nose feels broader
There is an uneasy calm in me

Sweet Dreams

Sweet Dreams

I wonder and I wonder how
Didn’t it all start with a dream?
What is a dream?

Why do we dream?
Do dreams affect us?
I wonder and I wonder how

I wonder and I wonder how
Do we all play our dreams during the day?
If no, then what a waste?

Why are we afraid to dream then?
I wonder and I wonder how
Dreams are what we are made up of
Sweet Dreams

The End

August 23, 2009

The End

Are we all working for the end?
If no, then why do we forget the long road to the end?
If yes, then why is everyone living in their own Sea Shell fearing the end?
Isn’t end the start of a new beginning?

Can we make a pledge?
Shall we sprinkle the road with affection and love?
Instead of playing the number game?

Life is then a game of chance!
What difference would it be between the road or the end?
A humble request before the end,
please excuse me of the number game

Imagination

August 22, 2009

Imagination

I wonder and I wonder how
How is imagination created?
and how did it come into existence?
Can we imagine a world without imagination?
I wonder and I wonder how

I wonder and I wonder how
Can we imagine a life without imagination?
Is Imagination the future?
Or is the future a product of our imagination?
I wonder and I wonder how

I wonder and I wonder how
Isn’t all imagination fiction in the beginning?
Aren’t we the actors who bring imagination into reality?
Then why are we scared of our very own imagination?
I wonder and I wonder how

Born to Party

August 22, 2009

Born to Party

I wonder and I wonder how
Was I born to Party?
If no, life would be way too dull
If yes, then why am I spending time writing this poem?

I wonder and I wonder how
Or was I born to run?
How long can I run?
Or was I born to work?

I wonder and I wonder how
One cannot work forever
Then mebbe i was born to study
But studying alone cannot work

I wonder and I wonder how
Alas, I know the answer
Nothing above makes any sense
I was surely born to party

Friend

August 22, 2009

Friend

I wonder and I wonder how
Who is a friend?

Is a friend in need a true friend?
Wouldn’t that be too selfish of me?

Wouldn’t I cease to be thee’s friend then?
I wonder and I wonder how

I wonder and I wonder how
What is friendship?

Is there any place for “Sorry” or “Thank You”?
Is it about spending quality time together?

Inspite of all the past happenings,
isn’t it about having fun and loving each other?

Alas, I know the answer
Its perhaps the most beautiful thing in the world

I wonder and I wonder how

The Test

August 22, 2009

The Test

I wonder and I wonder how
And never could I understand
Why is it that there is a Test at all?

What are we trying to prove or assess?
Can the Test prove anything at all?
All the tests are soon forgotten
and are never mentioned in history

What remains are only memories
I wonder and I wonder how
I wonder and I wonder how
Are we trying to curb anything?

What are we scared off?
That the younger generation will out-think us?
Can knowledge & wisdom be ever acquired by a Test?

If no, then why try?
If yes, then why cant we see progress in our civilization?
I wonder and I wonder how

Rebel

August 22, 2009

Rebel

I wonder and I wonder how
Am i a Rebel or is the Rebel me?
Is thee born or is thee made by the Society?

Can the Rebel be ever tamed?
Is no, then why try?
If yes, then wouldn’t the Rebel cease to exist?

I wonder and I wonder how
Its a long road, sure
but can’t be longer than one’s life span?

Does the Rebel walk alone?
If no, then where are the others?
If yes, then is thee still a rebel?
I wonder and I wonder how
