Untimely Sunset

Losing the day too early amidst a chaotic tide There is no time to gauge the moment and gaze beyond Stricken with melancholy, the ill-gotten sentiments rule Unseen sunlight in the clouds burn like trapped embers The day loses momentum as offensive debates rage Glaring reflections on tranquil rivers are harsh reminders Clocks die down one being caught between flagrant time Uncanny isolation by strange … Continue reading Untimely Sunset

Disturbing Silence

People have been silent for a while Tired from the incessant troubles Only sighs and wailing can be heard Shattering the deceitful silence Children do not dream of the future Puzzled with the grown-up woes Holding their hands during upheavals Here, for what the portent time brings At the doorstep of fragile minds Now, out in the open, a daunting sky Surrounded by fear, inauspicious … Continue reading Disturbing Silence

Well-being

The emotional, psychological, and social well-being of an individual can only be facilitated by a healthy environment. A society that is accepting, tolerant, and keen on listening patiently. In an interconnected world, incidents of intolerance and conflicts can affect anyone, especially children. When adults falter and are incapable of being the positive role-model for the future generation, they grow up despising them. We cannot think … Continue reading Well-being

Facing Fear

The distant fire seems to be more lethal  Flames within have fallen silent in a bizarre twist Of fate that was overturned by the faulty mirror Up in smokes, the ideologies that were opposed Illustrious absurdities and incendiary dialogues Common apathies while trying to suppress The rage that spreads through nonsensically All the words act as catalysts, there’s no doubt From the nameless one with … Continue reading Facing Fear

Painful Reality

It is sorely tormenting to witness the speechlessness  Thought of to be of some noble dreams the persistent contentions In fairness, the arrogant diktats have settled deeper Eyes never look for anything but the strange occurrences  Compassion suffers silently amidst the fuelled parochial pride  Sinewy thoughts strangulate the consciousness; it’s suffocating Love clings for clemency from the unsolicitous assemblies So mightily the fear has struck … Continue reading Painful Reality

In Disagreement

How intensely the ripples are played like a discordant instrument Forcibly, the lyrics are sung, which pierces the tranquil realm Seeds are strewn all over the ruffled and trampled ground; hopes quelled Cryptic mists gather over the graceless surfaces that cloak the environs Haughty dance steps gathered all the unsettled seeds into a muddy brawl Ages of turmoil wounded the skies and acres of pristine … Continue reading In Disagreement

Estranged Times

Estranged times have been documented with details Interspersed with little details of lovely time that struggled then Manuscripts were meant to be read and lessons not repeated Oft, the inspiration to enact the similar plots adapted to present times Engineering the similar characters with newer, more volatile dialogues Natural scenes draped in miserable sentiments- the spirits smile strenuously Power of worldly destruction through fiends from … Continue reading Estranged Times

Little Gains

Hate for gain brings a lot of pain The profits will soon be squandered away Alas! It’s a gamble that frowns on life The blemishes of vanity accentuate the patterns Antipathy has no sympathy for optimism It is mere pessimism titillated by arrogance Conquering destruction, usurping foul lands Rage punishes life in a cage of suffering Hostile passions never in love with life Amplified narcissism … Continue reading Little Gains
