Memoirs - Unending hope

Unending hope

Hungry eyes desiccated look
Chapped swollen lips a dry cough
Feverish body accompanies a dazed look
Bony arms that work has made rough.

With empty stomach he wanders far
Walking bare feet on a just laid road of tar
Sweat pores dry up on that sizzling hot day
In the mid summer month of May

Yes you couldn’t guess better
And there is no better word to utter
He is a street child
And that’s putting it mild.

Each day he lives
He searches longingly for someone who gives
Each moments such a torment and pain
As he waits patiently for some endearment in vain.

A time there was when tears rolled down the cheeks
from the corner of his eye.
But all his tears have dried
and there isn’t much left to cry.

All alone I am
He says and whether he lives or dies none give a damn.
He wants no pity or sympathy, just some love and care
But well that’s just too hard to share.

 But come what may
 His hope is here to stay ....

Memoirs- Wake up wake up my sleeping heart

Wake up wake up my sleeping heart

Wake up wake up my sleeping heart
Don’t lie back and remember,
Change your track for a new start,
Don’t think of that which has gone into the ember.
Today is there because there was a yesterday,
What is to happen tomorrow let it set in on its own,
So rest your mind awhile don’t let it stray
And what is there today try not to disown.
Today when a new wind has blown afresh,
Don’t think of that windy day,
Leave your heart free to feel a tumult or a crush
And dont give in so easily to the colour of grey.
Have dreams and hopes don’t leave it to another,
Learn to enjoy today as an art of living,
Don’t give in to fuss and bother,
Awake from deep slumber and often keep smiling.
There is so much to do and so little time,
Whatever you do do it with the same old passion,
Cos it’s much more a crime,
To keep your heart in check and ration....
Try living for today and only the moment.
Try to be open to those loving few,
Give more of yourself without a comment
Soon you will have a heart which may never need a mend or a sew….


Memoirs - The world lives within you

The world lives within you

You are what you want to be ,
The world is nowhere but within you.
Say of reason , I can make you see
Then the action you can justify, you can do.

In lonely lanes of sensitivity don’t sit and sulk
Running away from the problem is no solution
Cos only your sorrow and strife increases in bulk
And in frenzy and fear is what you are in your reclusion.

Put out that truly heartwarming smile
Hurt if you are, try hard to hide
And don’t ever those worries in you mind file
And who knows perhaps you may swim the opposing tide

Forget the trifles that flicker your brow
Live in harmony with that living you
Feel that moment and try not to overgrow
And know it comes searching what to you is due.

Don’t blame time for things it has done
Time is full of sweet innocence
It’s what’s in you which matters has gone
So try and build that lost confidence .

Feel free to feel as free as you want to feel
Think totally the way you think is the way to think
Just take care not another’s joy, you do steal
And soon for sure you can get over the brink
