Tested and proven
To some, above
To some, below
Maybe near, maybe far.
Right and refute,
You are what
By each and every
you met so far.
Leader to many,
Follower to many,
Your impressions vary
like the gazer which is bizarre.
As long as you know,
As long as I know,
No one will ever know
What others are.
As I was getting ready for another day,
I heard a pecking noise on my window.
All right already!
And there he was, a little sparrow.
He flew and sat on my hand
And tried to tell me something.
Little friend, I cannot understand
Whatever you are saying.
On my table was a picture of my family
Which the sparrow knocked down.
That was unnecessary, buddy!
And thus made sense, that pecking sound.
My new apartment stands over his old one,
It was I who was pecking.
I invaded his house while he was gone,
And it was I who wasn’t understanding.
~ The Rightful owner had returned
One day they shall all be forgotten.
Who, What, When, Where will all become trivial.
Same stories will repeat themselves
for the new actors to reveal
and think of themselves as pivotal.
Old actors will watch from a distance
and critique as the new ones make mistakes,
But so did they…
Past comes back in a way.
Yet the audience will applaud
and throw roses for the same play
because that is their part
and to act is actor’s.
In the end it is all just a play.
It is Forbidden!
And now I have your attention.
Something really significant
Ensures its retention.
It challenges us in a way
Like a decree that binds.
Words after it barely sway
For it imprisons minds.
It makes us want something
Which had no value till now.
The most manipulative word,
It is Forbidden to know how.
Magical, isn’t it?
9 letters is all it takes.
Next time upon hearing it,
Don’t repeat the same mistakes.
For it is Forbidden.
