THE INFAMOUS THREESOME

Tom, Dick and Sally
Went strutting down the alley

 

The sky was blue
On the green grasses were no drops of dew

 

“Look there,” said Tom pointing to his right
And the threesome burst forth laughing with all their might

 

For there stood a bunch of bullies
Pulling down the red pants of a teary-eyed Billy
(Isn’t red not a colour to be stitched into a pant?)

 

Thus strode ahead the threesome
Having fun a wholesome

 

Into the college gates they barged
Larry bowed before them removing his hat
(Ain’t freshers supposed to acknowledge seniors with humble obeisance?)

 

They were late for the lecture as usual
But they didn’t think it to be anything unusual

 

Out pulled Sally a Notice from the Outboard
Crushed and crumpled, it was tossed over her shoulder falling near the toilet door
(Ain’t rules meant for chicken-hearted morons?)

 

Sliding down the staircase railing,
They reached their classroom in the basement humming and whistling

 

The teacher’s disparagement
Wasn’t a reason to cause ‘em any discouragement
(Don’t classroom disciplines make robots out of men?)

 

Off they scooted to the campus canteen as the bell rang
To join the rest of their infamous gang

 

They grabbed the lunch plate from a hungry Bob
And ran away to their secret hub
(Isn’t is fun to eat off others’ money?)

 

Such and such their days passed by
Until their actions left them high and dry

 

Realization struck one fine day
When they were walking across the broadway

 

A repentant Dick resolved never to traverse his old paths again
Nodded Tom and Sally in affirmatory unison

 

If you meet them sometime now
Ask them what made them change and how

 

You’ll know then the secret of their transformation
That monumentally reset their lives’ foundation
(Isn’t life’s reformation a reason for celebration?)

It’s a big misconception that only like minds get along well – Try fixing two pieces of the puzzle with the exact same cut, will it work?
Complimenting and Completion
always works when there’s a hint of difference.

Mendacity, in the guise of relativism, convenience and accommodation is one of the biggest roadblocks
to the discovery of the absolute truth.

Featured

Our life is given to us to be lived in a certain way.
If it is not being led in the way it should have been
then we struggle along the way.

Self Belief may not make opportunities land up in your lap but it definitely arms you up with the capacity to foresee, evaluate, accommodate the opportunities from a long distance and channel them to your feet and propel you to the steering of your own destiny.

Featured

Unlearn to learn further.

Unburden to carry other’s burdens.

Silly, don’t Unlove but Fill your tank

with God’s Love to pour it out on others

“Pray for Forgetfulness for if you tend to forget the good done by you to others and continue in your penance of compassion, the serpent of arrogance will never be able to poison your soul. You will be grounded with the weight of a jewel called Humility.”

LET ME MOVE BEYOND ME

html-bundle-creative-beautiful-watercolor-flower-header-png-1800_340
Let me move beyond me
And look at them
Whom no eyes seem to see
In the world’s din and mayhem.

My pain I thought was searing enough
Nothing could match my agony
Life and living were tough
I felt as if I would break into a spree of mindless felony

To endure betrayal isn’t a joke
The heart that has bared and shared its all
No one should prick and poke
Love sure needs respond to love’s strong call

Accepting I was wrong
Wasn’t just that easy
I knew I loved well all along
How then have I landed here, all drained out and queasy?

Trust begets trust
Love begets love
These pretty bubbles have now simply burst
And, I choose to lie quietly down as a dove

To pick up the reins
And gallop through liferoads again
Needs unshackling from deep depressive chains
Will I ever get up and traverse in pathways of gain?

My heartaches are known to me alone
The best of sympathizers
Cannot just my anxieties dethrone
With even the most effective tranquilizers

The earth beneath my foot
Has suffered a violent shake
My life now is covered with slimy dark soot
Oh what good of it can I ever make?

In what extent of time my heart would finally heal
I don’t know fully well
When would I the deep peace feel
I never really can tell

And thus my thoughts wandered off
To those far and near
Who face many an unwanted scoff
And shed many a hidden tear

And then I thought –

Let me move beyond me
And look at them
Whom no eyes seem to see
In the world’s din and mayhem.

AN END TO THE ENIGMA OF LIFE

I kept wandering in the pursuit of happiness that never had any definitey.

I was surrounded by the maddening chatter of desires that robbed me of my serenity.

I kept looking for flaws in others to prove my superiority.

I was an obnoxious, boisterous trumpet busy in singing laurels in self-praise,  deprived of humility.

I invested myself to the extent of immersion in the worldly ties that costed me my sobriety.

I propelled higher in the skies of baseless egos and crude pride that I lost connection with the reality.

I was absorbed by the frivolous vanity of material charms that left me with insanity.

I let my greed take over my senses and I became nefarious and lost even my humanity leave aside divinity.

I was flowing with the directionless wind until I encountered – Failure, Old Age, Illness & Death – Teachers who teach everyone without disparity.

I soon yet quite lately realised that I was so far indulged in a mirage hunt that never existed even remotely.

I now stood as a silent spectator, witnessing the changing masks, perhaps the real faces – shedding down inhibitions and civility.

I was baffled at first, agitated, and finally struck by melancholy to see everything moving away from my proximity.

I crumbled down like a brittle wall and wailed hard that echoed within, digging up and unearthing the dormant soul resting under the debris of mistaken identity.

I was now bound to listen to the resonating call of my true companion that completely shook me first with remorse only to bring stability.

I realised the riches I amassed throughout never comforted me, contrary to that delight dwelled in a charity that has never been my priority.

I always had a safe distance from compassion while arrogance choreographed my relations that weathered away in the face of a calamity.

I, now a solitary reaper of venomous fruits of bitter seeds of my deeds quizzed my companion to suggest a way if any that leads to liberty.

I overheard as my companion whispered to my heart “seek forgiveness and salvation from the ever compassionate Almighty”.

I was again left in the lurch ” how shall I go about seeking the ultimate one and escape from the world and its duplicity.

I was startled when a voice echoed from within “shall I call you ignorant or address as innocent?  Still searching out, paying no heed to the one residing in you since eternity”.

I stood sans commotion, letting the silence speak eloquently to and within me, taking the charge of my senses for the first time in a while now and soaking in the tranquillity.

I felt the warmth of my tears drenching my barren heart as his words are aiding cultivation of compassion & righteousness that would yield the crop of wisdom, the profit of salvation, making soul opulent, and lofty.

I latched onto the light of truth, dispelled the fog of ignorance that enveloped my being, the cluster that insidiously gripped me is losing its ground, a life that seemed enigmatic is now deriving it’s meaning while rediscovering its beauty!!!
