She must be crazy

Her head is full of memory,
That is so fresh and clean,
As she could smell the place,
Fresh, haunting memories!

Her first encounter was tough,
But that was unforgettable,
As she kept it live these years,
A wonderful, healthy memory.

As a young innocent girl,
She felt the vibe,
But her upbringing knew,
That it was ethically wrong.

Fond are those moments,
But inappropriate and wrong,
That left her confused,
And often miserable.

Your uniqueness!

The world may be against you,
Learn to stand alone tall,
Be a specimen but not a sheep,
And get your daemon out.

All may travel on a road,
That is soft and straight,
Take the rough road boldly,
To reach a different destination.

Your uniqueness defines you,
Separates from other individuals,
Who have the same color,
But you will be a bright soul.

The village girl

She looked up at the skyscraper,
With open mouth and wondered,
How is it possible to build such one,
But the crowd panicked her.

Feared of getting lost in that ocean,
With different people mostly attired in black,
“Should be rich”, she thought,
As she moved slowly towards nowhere.

Men and women, busy with their suitcase,
Moved fast somewhere that intrigued her,
Was amazed but not amused,
As she started feeling claustrophobic.

Thought of her village, a beautiful place,
Green everywhere and birds chirping,
Stopped her moving forward,
Stepped back to go back.

You too Brutus!

Intense is the pain that lingers,
When you believe in someone,
who betrays you in a slimy way,
May it be of any gender.

The slimy one will one day,
See a similar one and regret,
And feel the same way,
I felt and regretted.

It’s too difficult to judge,
A good and a bad one,
As they know to act,
And betrayal is in blood.

The Sheep

Pathetic are the followers,
Who blindly believe the leader,
Who should be an eye opener,
But is just a blind manipulator!

He may think that he is smart,
But spoils his herd with hopes,
That are false and impossible,
As his path is very shady.

The herd is too stupid,
To follow his shadow,
And fall into a deep pit,
That is too deep to come out.

The blunt pain

The blunt pain that spreads,
Heavy as a rock, on the chest,
When you can’t cry,
Is the fear of losing.

It’s better to shed the pain,
Through tears, else will stay,
Forever as a nagging pain,
Growing into your brain.

None can stay forever,
But the fear of losing,
Is a nightmare than losing,
Anyone close to your heart.
