Stranger

It hardly matters when you roam around
I fear when you don’t make a sound

Once you came through the open door
You made me believe, I listened for sure
Everything changed and changed was I,
though I wondered how and why
I tried to be what I was not
That made my life a complete rot
Finding faults when turned me down
I thought and that’s what I found
All that happens, happens for good
You must know and know you should

Again you came and tried the door
Door was shut and I felt secure
You knocked once and kept on knocking
Again I saw my life rocking
But this time my fear was different
How can I not trust that is inherent
If you can’t change, how can I
Believe I should till I die

Experience was vain, you may say
But now I am I, I am happy this way
Fear still persist but faith won’t wither
Stranger you will always be is not true either

Reviving Dreams

Have heard people say that their dreams are lost
Have some experience and that scares me a lot

Why every passing year weakens my resolve
Why every passing season withers my soul
All resolves try falling apart
When I last dreamt, at times I forgot

Whenever I wish to get back to life
I’ve to strive to keep my dreams alive
Hope I live till I die
And let my dreams live beyond where I lie.

See You in Hell!

Lawyers lie and Doctors cut your throat. Be it Corporate world or Government agencies, they are interested in profit-making by any means and pull your noose to extract whatever you can spare or not spare. Social workers and Charity organisations are more concerned about their own welfare and upliftment. Priests and Preachers are means to end up as God in the land of mere mortals. Media plays the tune that suits them and I apologize to all other classes that I missed to mention here. This omission isn’t deliberate but it’s my limitation as the list is endless. Welcome to the world of grey whose shades are turning darker.

In our earlier stories there were either black or white characters. For quite some time grey is occupying much of canvas space. It’s the colour of reality and practicality. We all are grey and grey is intriguing. White means monotony and also it’s humanly impossible to remain spotless in entire span of your life. Visualizing ideal world is accused of being impractical and who can dare to be so imprudent to challenge that? But does that mean that we accept grey as right? Answer is very simple. It’s right when it is convenient and it’s wrong when it hurts. When it hurts, we see black everywhere, failing to realize how much we contributed to this darker shade.

If you can’t stop bribes (or call it “commission” in more respectful terms), put it under a legitimate expenditure head as our finance minister ably did. If I can pay why should I wait in que or follow the rules? If you can’t include sexually exploited in your society, ask for laws to legalise sex-trade. With the history and stories of gambling away one’s wife, kin or even kids, we ask to legalize gambling making the mafia behind even more stronger. In the name of competition and professionalism we don’t shy to sell our soul and trust. We give in to our temptations and call it human urge. Direct implications on us or its fear generate concern but otherwise all is acceptable. This leaves room for confusion. So, we must move on to next step.

If someone annoys me I must at least have freedom to hit him. And if that annoyance increases, which often does with such kind of freedoms, I shouldn’t be restrained to kill. It’s a natural human tendency to seek revenge. If my testosterone demands, it must be served in any possible manner as restricting such natural urge is cruel. There’s nothing wrong in living a tasteful life and if somebody else is paying for it, that’s their wish, even if a forced one.

White is a high maintenance colour. Grey is about convenience and practicality. And with its turning into black, even the confusion will wipe out. So, see you soon in Hell!!!
