The Tea Stall Warrior

his armor, is a vest with holes,
shabby shorts with a mosaic formed
by the stains of oil,tea, ashes of cigarette and coal

a foul-smelling cloth graces his shoulders
that sweeps the dust from the tables,
coincidentally it comes from the very stars
to which he prays sometimes in night

independence day for him,
is about selling his freedom
and a dozen flags,
a free plate of jalebi,
from the nearby school,
is the only reminiscence of the place
he was once born in,

he lives inside creaking doors,
surrounded by walls
capable of collapsing
by tremors of continuous coughing,

paints his dreams
from the acrylic color box found in a dustbin,
with bare hands on newspapers,
and scrapped sheets

he has no regrets
he might never have,
for he has never seen
the sun of expectations
rise in the morning.

the moon of contentment,
is what he only cares for.

Rush

A train passes me by like a bullet
People surround me like a swarm of bees
till I become one of them
Instituted and brain washed.
Riding the bullet
To places where my creativity succumbs
and brain acts like a fucker with no love involved
doing monotonic fucking periodic motions.
But Why?
Because we trust our feared heart more than our balls.

Silver Lining

It’s easy to spill out pain,
even easier to pen it down,
a thousand sighs goes into writing,
and you might end up with a master-piece,
soaked in your own tears.
People do take pain seriously,
But what about a merry trip?,
A blackout over a couple of beers with friends,
a laugh so hard you cried,
a kiss you cannot forget,
a gift you always wanted,
Try writing about them
you might end up
soaked in wicked smiles,
and memories to share,
It’s perfect to be happy,
even better if other become because of you.

Moonlight

In the dim glow of moonlight,
darkness craving for its might,
The lake adorns a silvery sight,
love is bursting for its right,

fog spreads like a flood from no where
timid hearts are beating in space somewhere,
with candles that glow and melt every night,
familiar bodies embrace tonight.

Welcome to the Society !!

Welcome you to our society, the society whose customs and thinkings are unparalleled to some extent. I have been living and being told to be amicable to these people on various occasions and this a summary of some of the funny observations I have made of the present society we live in :-

1) Be Accepted or make yourself :-

Your first step towards society is to make yourself acceptable towards society no matter what you have to do, they got Ferrari’s, no problem you need to buy the Lamborghini’s. They celebrating Labours day, you need to celebrate to. They sending their child to Harvard, why can’t your child go?

2) Passion is accountable, untill it pays :-

Passion is something drives you throughout the day, I have seen painters,writers,sculptures, waking everyday to new ideas and working towards the ways to achieve it. But in the end you should try to follow it untill and unless it has potential to drive and sustain your present/future family. It’s similar to using  the inner fire to light the woods to make food for the entire family.Funny isn’t it?

3) Love? Why not? Untill the family loves her.. :-

The ultimate blow comes when you have to make each and everyone in the house to convince the person you want to spend your life with is perfect for each and everyone living member which might include your pets. Secondly even all the so so distant member of her family should be acceptable.

4) Risk is a Child’s play, you are not a child anymore :-

Having Risk is a straight no-no, the unsaid holy laws of acceptance of society prevents you to do so,it doesn’t matter if it includes starting your business or to decide the new restaurant you want to try this weekend.

5) You Talkback, I double Talkback you :-

You are not at all required to talkback to your elders on any matter anyhow. Why? The holy unsaid laws of the society prohibits you to do so. Whether you are right or not, you should not end up opening your mouth and being a heretic for breaking of this holy law .

6) School/College is the Future :-

No matter you like it there or not,no matter you learn something or not,no matter the pet eats your homework or not, you need to aimlessly devote your life there in  hope of an unwanted,misguided future that would support your family extinguishing the flames of passion in you.

These funny instances sometime lighten me , me thinking as to whether this was funny for me or is it same for all of you? Would love to hear you all..Comment your views.
