He sat alone, all quiet and calm,
Hat on his head and a coat in his arm.
Watched the fields as they passed by,
The fellow traveller seemed a bit shy.

Drank tea as he read the news,
What happened next inspired his muse.
Widened eyes started looking at the door,
The watch in his pocket said, "Five O-Four".

Hustled as the train suddenly stopped,
Never did he notice the paper he dropped,
With tears in his eyes, he left the train,
Silently the stranger vanished in the rain...

I told the conductor about the gentleman who left,
He said "No Sir, perhaps you dreamt as you slept".
Suddenly he asked about my seat,
I said 2-B, the luxury suite.

He started shaking as he told me a story,
An army man and all about his glory,
Described the man who wore that hat 
Legend has it, it was a ghost I had met...

Silently the stranger vanished in the rain,
Little did I know I was witnessing a past pain.
Later as I got off, I looked at my seat,
The silent stranger was back, the past started to repeat.


- The Silent Stranger 




 

stars

Far away from the realm of men,
lies a world beyond anyone's ken.
Expanding and invisible to our naked eyes,
it's a sea of STARS that lights up our sky.

Giant and majestic as they are,
sending messages from a world so far.
Speaking a language of a time so old,
gallantly burns just to die cold.

Fire is eternal, pure is their might,
A smart liar hiding in plain sight.
Forever in motion, forever in the sky,
it's a sea of STARS where everything, flies.


-A fire that burns for eras and aeons



 

words

Funny are these words which we speak,
Each one carries a certain mystique.
Tapped with emotions they travel far,
Sometimes offering comfort, sometimes scar.

For centuries they have been a tool,
Favouring the smart and tricking the fool.
Wager of wars and bringer of peace,
In due time only should they be released.

They can build, they can destroy,
They can bring harm or can bring joy,
They can turn hate into love, 
They can help one to rise above.

Words can be dangerous or can be benign,
Carefully use the power confined,
Funny are these words which we speak,
Answers all the questions, we seek...

 

time

What is this Time?
Which is neither yours nor mine.

What is this Time?
Which never stops nor rewinds.

What is this Time?...

Present since the start of days,
Past, present and future are stories it says.

Biggest healer known to man,
It can cure scars no medicine ever can.

A gladiator who wins all its fight,
Everyone perishes before its undying might. 

Worth?!, is the most interesting of all,
Those who know, rise while others fall.

Respect it, be clever,
For once it passes its gone forever.

They say "Time and Tide, wait for none"
It's a fire which lives while everything burns.

Whatever you choose, whatever you decide,
Know this one truth before you ride,
Time can be a bliss, Time can be a curse,
But whatever it does it never goes back in reverse.

"TIME, The Biggest Enemy,
       The Greatest Friend."

who am i
Am I a human or am I a thought,
Am I really here or am I not?

Am I a soldier or am I a King,
Am I to take or am I to bring?

Am I a student or am I a teacher,
Maybe I am both, maybe neither.

Am I the truth or am I the lie,
Am I to stay or to travel by...?

Many have asked, many have known,
Many have come, many have gone.
Are we all together or are we alone,
Do we die or are we reborn?

Who am I????
Answer is...
Think of what Life is,
Believe and it truly will be a bliss.
Have faith and trust your own,
for whoever you are you will come home...


 

Once a toddler, today so old,

Once timid, today so bold.

Once intense, today is mild,

Proper today will become wild.

Near today was once far,

Clear today, was once bizarre.

Laws of nature will linger tomorrow, 

“If there is happiness, there will be sorrow”.

Antique might have become pristine, 

Time makes us all act on screen.

Yin-Yang says it all, 

“Even the greats had their fall”.


-With every Bad there is Good.


Honesty and Hardwork,
Attitude and Aim,
Persistence and Passion, 
Principles and Pain,
all the keys to something You wanna attain.
Add them to Yourself and see the sadness drain 
as "you" become, 
H.A.P.P.Y.

 

 

Why does the sky look so blue?
Why do people forget to be true?

Why does the eagle fly so high?
Why do hatred lives while people die?

Why does the sun shine so bright?
Why do we forget war's appetite?

Why does the bugle sound so loud?
Why sometimes success becomes one's shroud?

Why is the world not according to the books?
Why is humanity losing to the crooks?

Why?, We ask.
Why?, We seek.
Why this mask?
Why no one speaks?

.... Why?

 

Keeper of Secrets, Teller of Truth,

Immune to time, Forever a youth.

Silent as the wind, Still as wine,

Binded in those pages are tales in time.

Engulfed in those pages, is an ocean of words…

Waiting to be Sailed, Waiting to be heard.

Set sail, untie the tie,

A friend that stays while many pass by.

Your companion he is, says this to you…

“I am a book, I’ll always be true”.


~The Book 


We all need these idiots in our lives..

When you need an ear
when you need someone dear
...A friend is always there

When you need a laugh 
when you need to cry
...A friend is always there standing by

When you need to trust
when you need to share
...A friend is always there to care

When you need an advice
when someone's approval is better than a prize
...A friend is always there

Lucky are those who have these gems

A friend is someone who is very rare
there may be many but only few care

Finding them is like finding that key
which unlocks the door of all the possibilities

Hold them, don't let them go
Tie them, dont let them flow

See them and see your flaw 
Hear them and start to row 

Be a true friend to your friend
know the true meaning of the word 
F.R.I.E.N.D

Keep it simple, keep it pure
Keep it just, keep it as a cure

Be as a child with your friend
live like a kid and don't let it end

A friend is always there, Standing by
Holding your hand and keeping your smile

If you cry,...i'll be there
If you fly,... i'll be there

No matter what i'll catch your tears...
As long as i am, i'll hold you dear

....From a Friend
