Dispel this illusion

Hey, excuse me but can you move

You think that you are awesome

But I beg to differ

Please dispel this illusion from your mind

Throwing the same old trite line my way

Will not get you what you dream of

The rope that ties my heart to my head

Is not breakable

Your flattery and silly foibles are no use

Please dispel this illusion that you are

A gift of God to the women!

Eyewash!

Does it not seem ludicrous to you

To think that this amorphous

Mass of humanity can paddle

Its way out of the whirlpool it is in

The environment is at a threat

The men in Guns are chasing

Those money bills and are trying to

Make even more by selling lives

And the ones who sit in authority

Are telling us everything is A-okay

The Sum Total

The sum total of my ambitions is just this

I want to be able to live and die with a light

A clear conscience which carries no burden

No money is the substitute for a unencumbered

Mind, free of guilt and feelings of remorse

That is all that I want at the end of my days

But to double the joy, add love and kindness

And my cup will overflow with gratitude

Double

Difficult Circumstances

It’s no contest

Born to a family who is spendthrift

Life was very difficult to manage as it was

But with a view to make things better, who would you change

Change the outlook of the people in your family or yourself

Change your earning capacity or increase your savings

Or maybe just look at things differently altogether

Not mourn the loss of what was

But revel in what you have

The play

Photo credit; Google

The kids were standing on the stage, performing the play. It was a simple story, adjusted for the fact the the cast were five year olds of first grade. Timmy was to be the mouse which had to say a few lines. But being a bashful child, his shyness made him stumble over his lines. The teacher in the wings started to prompt him, ad verbatim. Thankful for the help he rushed through the lines and the audience, with his parents among them, found it so endearing that there was a long applause.

Keeping it safe!

It’s my money, don’t you abscond with it

My savings are in here and what I won

In a wager which my friend lost to me

It takes a long time to fill the piggy bank

Specially if you only have dimes and pennies

In the humdrum of day to day life I try hard

To save my money to get a little something

Set aside for the rainy days if you get my drift

So I guard my savings jealously and watch

Like a hawk any attempt from you to swindle me

Out of this precious commodity that we call money

So get away from my piggy bank, you tax department!

Wherever I see dessert

It’s always a war between my conscience and my desires

Whenever I see the dessert being served I mostly cave in

The delicious and decadent concoction are hard to resist

Unless I am marooned on a deserted island there are very

little chances that I would not eat at least a small portion

Or a tiny little bite of these temptations from the devil

Broken Silence

The silence was broken by the falling of a glass

It resonated through out the room in echoes

Without a backward glance he bent to pick

The broken pieces of it, carefully gathering up

Each shard of the glass and made a pile of them

Each piece representing the broken ego that

He so prided himself on through out his life

Now just a few words from his father had

Set a series of thoughts in his mind that

Like sparks running through a fuse wire had lit

The big boom, that broke his ego and personality

It was a little thing that he said, his father

But in front of the whole family he was embarrassed

And the father, he is looking inwards too

Cursing his tongue which uttered those words

Word he wished unsaid as soon as he spoke them

Living here and in now

When my common sense dominates

The lucid dreams that I often dream

I feel that the sumptuous feel of my

Imaginary world is just a mirage ’cause

Whatever I can see in my dreams cannot

Become my reality however much I may want

It will surely be a place to retire and indulge

When I want an escape from the real and mundane

But, live I must in the real and in the now

Because the escape may be beautiful but it’s just that

An escape from the reality

Age versus youth

It hit me suddenly, the nostalgic feeling

While I was sitting out in my garden thinking

How I used to putter around and tended to it

The things I could do when I was younger and fit

Oh, could I return to those days of youth when

We are fit, agile and full of vitality and energy

Then another thought struck me, convincing me

I am better for being this age that I am now though

There are things that I wish I could still perform

Yet,I have reached the age of wisdom and maturity

Things which were cause of anguish and jealousy

Aren’t that important for me now that I have seen

How little they mattered in the larger scheme of life

I have lost the energy of youth but gained the insight

That only living long enough brings to make us realize

That it’s not what you have that matters in life

But how you use what you are given, that does
