Lost In Woes

Streaks of blood I watch
Streaming down the hand
Countless scars on scars
Starting where they end

Repercussions Of The Past

On a cold, relentless night
I woke up, lonely, with a fright
Only darkness all around my sight
My invisible demons exist with all of their might
At the end, these infinite shadows have no light
For I am in a battle that I cannot possibly fight

Life Is A Bird

Birds play a vital role in our lives. Their several contributions, for the most part, are in the background. These good deeds are neither realized nor appreciated by us. We could go as far as to say that we fail to acknowledge their purpose or beauty in any manner. But sometimes, a bird poops on our heads. And we get so mad at them. We end up filled with hate and anger. We curse the damn birds, wondering why our luck is so downtrodden.

Arise

At the end of the day

Is the emptiness called tomorrow

And everything seems to change

But it is different kinds of same

And I will not hide anymore

While everything is ablaze

Life Of Choice

Everything in life is a choice. These choices we make are for our betterment, survival, or to alleviate a sense of hopelessness – and it may not always seem so from another person’s perspective. Every second of the life we live boils down to the various choices we have made, and what we choose now will ultimately pave the way to create options for our future decisions. We pick what is needful or imperative to us at any given moment, whether it be the choice to live, eat or do something.

Lost Love

Another year has passed by
Without your love to make me strive
I function with no spirit, no drive
Our bond gave me so much might
They say the strongest feeling is being in love
But heartbreak can suck you dry

For The Love Of Singapore

We, human beings, possess an inherent love of nature. Spending time in nature is an enjoyable experience, and there is no denying that. But we comprehend and appreciate the beauty of nature when we immerse ourselves in it, one way or another. Of the several encounters I have had of nature, my favorite experience happened in the summer of 2019 when I vacationed in Singapore with my family. Singapore, a small island in Asia, calls itself the Garden City for a reason. During my stay, we went out every day to see several interesting places. These major attractions for tourists did not fail to amaze me.

Pain

A hollowed chest
Pangs of emptiness
Gun’s been aimed
At heart untamed
Through and through
Feelings of blue
Cuts and scars
Hope travels afar

Pain is a four-lettered word
Pain makes you a caged bird
Pain makes you cry liters worth
Pain there is nothing worse

Cross my heart
Hope to live
A war inside
Battle each night
Conquer a demon
Despite the screaming
Life force dying
Energy is fading

Pain is a four-lettered word
Pain makes you a caged bird
Pain makes you cry liters worth
Pain there is nothing worse

Sexism, Feminism, And Rape

Despite claiming to be in a modern, civilized world, one can find patriarchy in any nook and corner. Yet, many choose to stay oblivious to it or pretend it does not exist. We see too many women being treated as childbearing machines, sometimes even as property. It is depressing that such an ignorant and brutal mindset prevails, even preached by other women. Is it nature or nurture? Do some human beings have a radio in their head insisting men are the superior gender and women are mere cogs? I do not claim all men feel or behave so. Some men believe and fight for both equity and equality. But the fact is, an alarming number of men treat other genders with nothing short of contempt, mockery, and condescension. It is normal to hear, ‘you are behaving like a girl’ or ‘he is a guy, so it is okay.’ It is baffling that this behavior provides an ego boost. What one can or cannot do is not gender-determinant! A specific gender is not by default stupid, silly, dramatic, crazy, bossy, or possessive. We are different beings with our strengths and weaknesses, and none superior – Barrack Obama, Demi Lovato, Giorgio Armani, Elliot Page, Jessica Alba, you, and I. All alike yet different. None of us deserve to get subjected to discrimination.

My Fault

I am the most selfish person you’ll meet

I care only about myself, my problems, and my feelings

I am blind to what you’re going through you see

I know I don’t deserve to live, exist or breathe
