The Time Has Come

Eyes flutter to the morning rays,And you realize today’s the day.The unexpected vacay is now over,And it’s time to slog again. The same old boring nine to five,Small chats and faking smiles.The situation isn’t even under control,And you don’t feel safe at all. Those judging eyes, the targets to meet,The virus lingering, un-sanitized,Nothing about today is good,Damn!…

The Like Scam

Oh dear, you wonderful being,The beautiful person reading this,I’m glad for your time,Please remember to smile.This is just a little experiment,To test a weird predicament,Where people like all our posts,Without even reading them. Oh yes, likes make me happy.But I want to know something,Do people really read,My posts till the end?If you are really reading,For this…

Vile Mother Nature

Oh dear, mother nature,Your parenting is fucked up.They say, “You’re beautiful.”And I don’t deny it.They say you’re vulnerable,That’s true to some extent.But don’t you dare act all saintly,You can be very ghastly. You’re the reason we’re alive,You give everything to sustain life.For that I’m eternally grateful,I don’t know how do I ever thank you.But you…

… lives matter!

Black lives matter,And white lives matter,Dalit lives matter,And Thakuri lives matter,Muslim lives matter,And Hindu lives matter,Solider lives matter, And baker lives matter,Gay lives matter,And lesbian lives matter,Every life matters,Every single life!  So, let’s burn down the division,The walls and the borders,Let’s forget the religion,The caste and the color, Let’s embrace love,Let go of the hatred,For every…

Sleepless Nights

100, 99, 98, 97,Takes me back to when I was seven.Daddy giving me a goodnight kiss,Counting back, was a task he’d give. Such a strenuous task, for my little brain,I’d drowse off in just a few seconds.96, 95, 94, 93,Can I go back to when I was three?While memories are blurry, all so hazy,But I know…

Too Busy

“Too busy, too busy, too busy.”How many times have we used this,As our life turned hazy,And the race took us in? How many friends have we lost,Not due to a fight, just lost touch?Faded bonds, irreplaceable memories,No time for talks or well-meant pleasantries. How many dreams have we crushed,As to some other day, we pushed?Cause life is…

A World Without Soldiers

I dream of a world,Where soldiers didn’t exist.I really do admire them,All that they do, to keep us safe,But imagine a world,Where they weren’t needed. Imagine a world,Where every person would return,Safe and sound to their families.No lingering danger,No gun shots, no wars,No attacks, no defense. Imagine a world,Where there was nothing but love,Every human eager to…

Hold on to the light

All the things, you have seen,All the things, you had to endure,Has all together mold you,Into an abyss of pessimism.And you cling to the darkness,As if it’s your only safe-house,But I want you to open your eyes,To the light that’s all around you.I know it is not at all easy,When light has only betrayed you.Every…

A Promise of Forever

Don’t you see it,How you slice me?Your words sting,And your actions kill.On my heart,You’re playing dart.Or is it archery,That you practice?Now each scar hurt,A little less every day.While it’s exploding inside,With all the dreams we’d seen.Our happily ever after,Our promises of forever,Oh, how beautiful they were!Now, I silently take all your brunt,As you prove it’s…
