Being Good In A Funny World

Christmas is around the corner and Santa is making his good and bad list. I wonder how does he do that. I wonder how does he define good or bad. As a kid I used to believe that being good means being kind and not hurting anyone mentally or physically. Then I grew up and had my things stolen, trust broken and ass grabbed by strangers and Continue reading “Being Good In A Funny World”

Raining With The Rain

It was raining with the rain, the grey clouds of pain,

Running down the hills with the streams of muddy water.

As they got drenched and shivered from the cold

They felt it wash away, the dust that settled over them over time. Continue reading “Raining With The Rain”

So You Smile

When the heart is slit open
Love drips like blood
Thick warm drops or red
Trickle down the chest and it’s painful.

It’s as if the air around you turns dense and heavy
Too heavy to carry, It starts to bend you, exhaust you,
But it’s not all in the air, you feel it in your body

Trying to swallow you inside out,
It hurts physically, at the back of you eyes
In your throat, in your chest
And somewhere else
Somewhere inside you 
Or maybe outside you 
But the pain is so real
Yet you can’t point to a part of your body
And say There, that’s where it hurts. Continue reading “So You Smile”

There is this time of hope and uncertainty
After you sow a seed and before
You see a little sapling in its place.
Watering a patch of dirt day after day,
No proof or progress that your eyes can see,
Yet you believe in what it can be,
While on tenterhooks and in turmoil
You hold on to the dream of a mighty tree,
The nobility or the foolishness of that faith
Shall be proved with the fate of that seed.
