Flowing Through Life

Life passes through so many hands Pray, they are not clenched Fate too finds the path to reach the next destination Faces change too, so does the eyes and their reflections Life does not perish, but time breathes magical mantras Different places, languages, and cultures Death is that threshold to be crossed before another chance To experience a new reality New doors open; once they … Continue reading Flowing Through Life

Dull Narrative

How fascinating the day would have been if there were no untruths Dreams could have pursued the golden hues and chased eternity Time has pranked us into believing the entire narrative of subservience Our will imposed on nature too, and the yield lacks the aroma of the wild Inherent will has been altered by the malevolent instructions Compelled to believe in the limitations, weaknesses, and … Continue reading Dull Narrative
