WORLD SPEAKS VOLUME

Speech speaks volume and not silence

Work speaks volume and not idleness

Strength speaks volume and not weakness

Success speaks volume and not failures

Charity speaks volume and not meanness

Arrogance speaks volume and not meekness

Agility speaks volume and not slowness

Why? Bizarre and Senseless?

But no I think so!

Because World understands this volume

We have been fed and bred with this volume

We revere power and despise the infirm

Someday sometime it will change

And virtue and vice will be one and the same

LOST TENDERNESS

 

Humanity in filth and flagrance

Thoughts and care always in dalliance

We abhor poverty and penury

And marginalise indigent and needy

We fail to acknowledge an orphan

Not even recognise a disabled clan

We accuse, ascertain and blame

Knowing nothing about the game

Where is that lost tenderness?

Have we lost that goodness?

And mortgaged that kindness?

Tender thoughts lost forever

And belief is lost for the believer

We need to push that envelope further

For tenderness is a great leveller

Be tender towards humanity

Be tender towards depravity

Don’t make tenderness elusive

And also don’t make it evasive

Let it flourish and groom

For humanity to prosper and bloom

INFUSE….AND MAKE THE WORLD HAPPY AGAIN

INFUSE…AND MAKE THE WORLD HAPPY AGAIN

 

They are still there

The humanity

The sanity

The sanctity

But have somehow lost meaning

Need to infuse them now again

 

They are still there

The brotherhood

The bonhomie

The support

But have somehow lost meaning

Need to infuse them now again

 

They are still there

The belief

The conscience

The consideration

But have somehow lost meaning

Need to infuse them now again

 

They are still there

The sacrifice

The passion

The camaraderie

But have somehow lost meaning

Need to infuse them now again

 

Infuse character to the world

Infuse glory to the humanity

Infuse hope to the hopeless

 

Make this world happy again

INFUSE…AND MAKE THE WORLD HAPPY AGAIN

INFUSE…AND MAKE THE WORLD HAPPY AGAIN

 

They are still there

The humanity

The sanity

The sanctity

But have somehow lost meaning

Need to infuse them now again

 

They are still there

The brotherhood

The bonhomie

The support

But have somehow lost meaning

Need to infuse them now again

 

They are still there

The belief

The conscience

The consideration

But have somehow lost meaning

Need to infuse them now again

 

They are still there

The sacrifice

The passion

The camaraderie

But have somehow lost meaning

Need to infuse them now again

 

Infuse character to the world

Infuse glory to the humanity

Infuse hope to the hopeless

 

Make this world happy again

REPRIEVE FROM

When I look around for reprieve from

Slander, abuse and atrocity

I get none.

When I look around for reprieve from

Deceit, distrust and dishonesty

I get none.

When I look around for reprieve from

Pain, sufferings and agony

I get none.

When I look around for reprieve from

Infirmity, debility and fragility

I get none.

When I look around for reprieve from

Raucous, ruffian and rowdy

I get none.

Still I am looking around for reprieve from

All the ills, malice and adversity

Hope I should get this one.

IMPRESSION

IMPRESSION

First impression is the last impression! Really!!

 

When I opened my eyes to the world,

Full of bonhomie, affection and love,

What followed was push and shove.

 

When I opened myself to my friends,

Full of camaraderie and endearment,

What followed was only a few remnant.

 

When I opened to my conscience,

Sacred, honest, clear and idealistic,

What followed was aberrant and realistic.

 

When I opened to the tenets of life,

Full of zeal, enthusiasm and optimism,

What followed was a dull pessimism.

 

When I opened to self- criticism,

Fair, transparent and self-depreciation,

What followed was selfdom & self- admiration.

 

First impression is the last impression! Ugh!

 

 

I AM TEMPTED TO

At times I am tempted to give up

My resistance, my fight

At times I am tempted to accept

The resistance, the fight

At times I am tempted to flee away

From despair, from despondency

At times I am tempted to imbibe

The despair, the despondency

At times I am tempted to abhor

The stubbornness, the rigidity

At times I am tempted to flaunt

My stubbornness, my rigidity

At times I am tempted to assure

The gullible, the nubile, the innocent

At times I am tempted to shun

The gullible, the nubile, the innocent

At times I am tempted to worry

About the world, the mankind

At times I am tempted to be sorry

About the world, the mankind

At times I am tempted to remember

The humanity and the sanity

At times I am tempted to forget

The humanity and the sanity

And I fail to understand why?
