Thoughtful thoughts


Thoughtful thoughts
Of a migrant mind
With darted eyes
And stitched up lips

With pale white gaze
Like full moon haze
Come let me show you
MY world

Of drunken beats
Of left over life
Like merry go round
And seated knives

Belt it tight
Or else might bite
What laughter or cry
Smirk or shy

Bellowing sounds
Of heartfelt kiss
Let me show the passion
The heart warming bliss

Courage and wisdom of tightly
Switched them off on
Sacred religion
You and Me

Me the world u seek
Of thoughtful thoughts
And drunken beats
Of left over life

Thoughtful thoughts
Of a migrant mind
With darted eyes
And stitched up lips

Change


When things don't change in life
we wish it changes
when things do
we wish it never did

What is this change
which binds the human heart
and fears it so loud
that grips ?
But better ones never ?

Have you heard the long lost tale ? "Karur Poush maash to karur sorbonaash?"
Of bitter sweet tastes ?
Change is that which plunges us to the core
and thrust us up shore
to face this uncanny world
of new things
some old
same old but new
and some not even recognized by the eagle eye

Levels of laughter
Clouds of cries
Sea of smiles
All combine to welcome change
or even to revolt it

I am what i am
but I always want to be like that
Life is funny at times
