I am walking through the forest,
The very lonely forest, all by myself,
No one to speak to, no one to touch,
I’m all alone feeling sad and betrayed.
I am walking past the dark, drowning shadows,
To the flowing river to face my death,
No one to speak to, no one to save me,
I’m all alone as I set forth to face my doom.
I take a breath of fresh air,
And enter a place so foreign to me,
No one to speak to, no one to fall on,
I’m all alone in a place I must call home.
The further I go, the clearer it becomes,
And the less I ache,
No one to speak to but myself,
That’s when I realized, ONLY I CAN SAVE MYSELF.

I look around me and I find the things I’ve seen have made me blind.
I can no longer look and see the beauty that once surrounded me.
I see the world with eyes anew, the greed and hate, intolerance too, have taken over to leave behind a landscape bare of all that’s kind.
Once we shared and shared alike. Our homes and hearts were open too.
What we had was there for all.” What’s mine is yours” was all the tone.
Now “What’s yours is mine, what’s mine’s my own”
I dream that things will change again, that new will not be the end.
That we will save the things we have. Not cast aside as fashioned slave.
The desire, greed and envy trend will fade as we make do and mend.
Our world would avoid the change in nature as men’s natures grew.
In taking less and giving more, we feed the hungry, help the poor.
A wealth that we have never known is there for all, no man alone.
No lottery, no selfish gain. A richness we had lost is found.
Life’s joy and happiness laughter sound.

There is no time, No time to spare,
These are the moments, In which we share,
There is no time, Forget the past,
For nothing is forever, This will not last,
There is no time, The end is near,
Love each moment, Live not in fear…

I stand by my window
watching the streets below
the multicolored shadows moving to n fro
some in a rush not to b late
some too slow cos they got time to waste
some hiding behind the walls
some crying loud
cos they got no eyes for those tears to keep
some riding bikes n flying in air
some walking head down
cos they got none to share
sum stretching arms asking for penny
some bunking away waisting money
I turned my head to the other lane
but there too the situation was same
so I closed my window n sat on a mat
pondering on the views I have just had
I was thinking deeply
n suddenly someone called my name
I turned back in vain
it was aunt of mine saying me to go
I had to go cos I was getting late
I dressed myself n stepped out
in the world full of love, jealousy, sadness n hate…

When I look up and down the streets,
in this world I dare not speak,
to see the people looking down,
I wonder why they always frown,
just one day I hope I see,
people that are as happy as me.

Life has its beginning
Like a book or a story that there’s an ending
For eternal life is always waiting
To end those pains and sufferings.
It made me remember
When I still had my grandfather
Who was there for me when I needed care
And wakes me up in the midst of nightmare.
Years had passed and his strength was finally over
Day by day his knees were getting weaker
Until one day he couldn’t land his feet
It only shows how life is so swift.
From dark hair to gray
Not knowing that his birthday would be also his last day
I have nothing to do but to pray
That God will find a way to be with him again someday.

I wonder why a bird can fly…..
and yet, not I
A fish can swim beneath the sea …
but yet, not me.
The hoot owl sees in the dark of night…
yet, I must use a light.
It soes not seem quite right…
yet……”I can wonder!”
