As Stories Unfold

Windows lament the gloomy days Missed opportunities to hear from the travelling winds Sometimes they mumble after a slight push Lonely for now, they have no new stories to share Out there, the busy world walks in an orchestrated way Empty seats and abandoned dreams Some forlorn faces, but most of them are stoic Different dreams rush past similar paths No glances are exchanged in … Continue reading As Stories Unfold

Vacant Feelings

The pandemonium from the vacant arguments  Somehow, the day is forced to settle down unquietly Time is pulled into the argument and wound tightly Grotesque voices scrape across the walls Murals of anxiety, aggressiveness, and foul language Permanent signs of dissonance Natural lights have been barred from the premises The togetherness of loneliness and other passive fear Many overlapping coffee stains tables the discord Dust … Continue reading Vacant Feelings

Changing Concepts

Ivan always set the pace of his day with his incredibly ambitious plans he thought of. He rushed through the quietness of the morning to immerse himself in the busy city life; his eyes only yearned for the dull grey colours. Manoeuvring through the numbed consciousness of the skewed designs drawn with some grumpy pen. The concepts of such designs are mostly ill-fitting; looks much … Continue reading Changing Concepts

Hurried Steps

Walking through life in hurried steps Unusual briskness tires the soles too often The feet barely make contact with the Earth Entire body in a state of stiffness from expectations When life becomes an indomitable challenge There was not enough time for self-realization Hurried decisions to plunge into life unprepared Without the knowledge to comprehend details Dreams of acquiring too much too soon Relationships become … Continue reading Hurried Steps

See

So often, we do not see We visualize the collective thoughts Relentlessly invades our mind To alter the field of vision Pulling us towards a common dream Aspirations, desires, and life Not enough time for introspection Hurried through life’s every juncture Journeying without self-realization We see, yet we falter Knowing, the hurdles are there Becomes a habit to repeat mistakes Defunct ideologies stretched too far … Continue reading See

World and Lifestyle

The world which endorses ideologies like ‘cut-throat’ competition, ‘market your skills’, and ‘brand yourself’ so that you can be a ‘go-getter’; all of the mentioned jargons (which have negative connotations) are being taught for a survival in an increasingly corporate world which promotes such aggressive thinking. It is only natural that role-models have shifted from people of intellect towards people of wealth. They are being hailed … Continue reading World and Lifestyle
