I wanna let you know

For the days when you close your eyes and not know what to say to Him
And it puts thoughts of hell on your head

For the days when you jerk right out of your sleep and wonder what’s lurking in the dark
And your heart races into another dimension

For the days when in the middle of a beautiful meal, your teeth turn against your tongue
And the pain drowns the sweetness

For the days when in your thirst, the fluid adventures away to the wrong tube
And your coughs scare you more than they pinch

I wanna let you know
That you escape the reaper’s  hook
But one day you won’t;

And for that day, we’ll weep


I don’t walk alone

I don’t usually walk alone

But I know the beauty of solitary saunters

And I know how sweet it is to hum tunes my brain credits itself for

so I walk with my music

and my problems too

Chanting them as if to entertain the whizzing winds

Singing them as if the melodies would shoo them away,

With the incessant brrrr!s they leave on my ears

Chorusing them to the birds

Just as if their responses are solutions

Chirp! Chirp! they quip, and I sing along

There’s a solution to my troubles,

The winds and birds know,

I don’t walk alone.


I don’t walk alone.

A future…

There’s always a future being reckoned

A person looking into the azure above

seeing tomorrow half-hidden by the vast skies

longing to have greener pastures

longing to grasp a time-machine and spare themselves the wait

But i dare think

There should always be a future being worked for

a person not staring up but burried in books

learning ardently  and exploring vast knowledge fields

longing not but making a better future

and finally when the time comes, it’s a greater surprise.
