Anonymity

Ever noticed how people act when they think they are invisible?

We all have a fear of being judged.

For it can put a dent in our glory.

False glory if it can be smudged,

Introspect while I reveal the folly.

 

Fear is due to the identity,

One we call as our Name.

While in case of others’ we find serenity,

We are afraid to be associated with shame.

 

So we venture out as anonymous,

For without our Identity we lose that fear.

Ironic, same person with the same purpose,

Under anonymity decides to really appear.

 

Be Badass

You know what… Just play it cool!

 

 

Let’s part ways with the respectful methods,

And talk in the rawest of forms.

Denounce hiding and set the records straight,

Being badass is setting your own norms.

 

Call what you see,

Be you, simply be free.

Bottomline: The world will always misread.

Don’t bother, let them and you just be.

 

Do what you please, as long as it doesn’t harm anyone else.

For being badass is even more cool without creating any mess.

Make your own rules, goals and set yourself a bar so high,

That even you realise you have no option but to try.

 

Stop reading this, go write your own lines now,

Let them see you succeed and wonder, “How?”.

You be the one whom you does or doesn’t’ allow,

Rule no. 1: You make the rules now.

Parody by Poets

Let’s look at the funny aspect of our lives, alright?

Let’s laugh a little. Enough with all the sadness and lectures and drama and stuff.

 

Life starts at school,

Where with a backpack we try to act cool.

Some score high and some low, however,

In front of our “Einstein” friends we end up as a fool.

 

Later comes extra curricular,

Where we are expected to explore.

But our crush is not in the same group.

Last I remember, I was out cold on the gym floor.

 

Teenage is already so hard,

One day I am playing make believe,

The other I am dealing cards.

Is it weird to think, me and my buddies are Avengers: Earth’s guards?

 

Have you been to college yet,

Trust me its a roller coaster ride.

Life will start taking your bets,

Even with backlogs you will one day stride.

 

So I am working now, or at least I am supposed to,

Still haven’t figured out the How, only similarity between me and you.

Yet we work so hard at times, either to stay in office or to flea from sight.

When my system gets frozen I take it as a sign, I am hungry, let’s grab a bite.

 

In short, I have written a long post,

But hey, who said life is fair.

Oh my Einstein friend, scarier than a ghost,

Let’s see who blinks first in the game of stare.

 

Twist and Shout!

This Poem will require you to stand up, close your eyes, put on some music and dance.

Whoof! A lot of instructions in one line, right?

To hell with everything people!, just go crazy. I know I do 😉

 

Twist and Shout!

Close the door on the outdoor drama,

Dim the lights as you see fit,

Twist to capture the space in panorama,

And Shout as if you have been hit.

 

Let the music guide your steps,

And the company of friends help you instead.

A mental exercise that needs no reps,

Even if you can’t, just dance in your head.

 

Twist and Shout and scream to be alive,

It is a feeling and not a state.

On getting through the day just high five,

Twist and Shout! it feels so great.

 

I cannot dance yet I do,

I cannot sing yet I do,

I can though ask you to,

Twist and Shout and be a little you.
