It’s unpredictable

I see him daily near a mall,
Under a tree selling fruits,
As the hot sun scorches dry,
Hiding under an umbrella.

It’s no wonder that struggle,
Is the same for everyone,
It’s the choice that decides,
How you lead your life!

Life is not a bed of roses,
Some work hard to earn,
Some have money to spend,
Either ways it’s unpredictable!

Cherish it if found!

Once sweet, turns bitter,
The morale changes in time,
As all have psychic changes,
That may test the conscience!

Give more, yet demands more,
Not the loved ones are saints,
But are mean, as none is Buddha,
As one can live with no love.

If one keeps the mind focused,
Can find the truth of existence,
Has nothing to do with love,
But can cherish it if found!

Faded like a rainbow

It seemed eternal waiting,
As it was gloomy and drizzling,
She thought about him till,
He knocked the door!

She giggled aloud happily,
At his arrival, a surprise!
There was a twinkle in his eyes,
Yet, it faded like a rainbow!

Love can never be forced,
Its a curse for those who wait,
For the love to happen, the elixir,
That may never be found, alas !

Rich at heart!

A humble banker was he,
With no big dreams or goal,
But to run his small family,
That totally depended on him!

He was too straightforward,
Decent was his monthly pay,
Yet couldn’t live at peace,
As not each day is the same.

When his wallet was empty,
His goal was just to keep it full,
So that his family doesn’t suffer,
A rich man at heart was he!

Masha and the Bear

Bear! Bear! Where are you?
Called my son and I replied,
“Yes, Masha” with a smile,
Let’s play hide and seek!

He hid under the bed,
His feet clearly visible out,
I acted finding him nowhere,
Giggling, out came my son.

Oh, Bear! I won the game,
Yes! I said to cheer him,
My cutie pie is a pure soul,
A precious piece of gem!

You dirty Liar!

I luckily discovered you at college,

You would make me happy often,

With those romantic thoughts,

Promises that kept me dreaming.

You were every girl’s desire,

A charmer with a glossy outlook,

Filled with romance and elegance,

I filled my empty head with passion.

When I faced the reality, was shocked,

Disappointed, hated as I saw none,

That you said in each line, true lies,

You, Mills and Boon, I hate you!

The Race

Run slow and reach the goal,
No sword is above your head,
It’s your life and yours alone,
Keep a slow pace and be cool!

No point in sweating, panicking,
And running from pole to post,
You got to run your race, none can,
So do not hurry but keep moving.

Be slow and steady to live long,
As people around you are viewers,
They can just watch but can’t run,
It’s your life and the race is yours!
