My Nation- My Pride
Holding our flag in my hand
The feeling of being in her lap
My motherland, my nation
Tears rolled down in respect and love
Taking the first step towards her
Waving the tri-color in pride
As the Jawans stood around to guide
There is no beginning or end
To the feelings of patriotism found
Dancing to the tunes of Jai Ho!
Men and Women swayed in happiness
A Free India, A freedom cherished
That makes life more eternal, surreal
Where else can you feel this pride? ...
Loneliness And Me
Loneliness sometimes is my only comrade
To it by cunning i was wed
It shares my thought, my speech and life
Its also shares my lonely self and peace!
Can think what I want, can perish all i cant
can run behind my wildest dreams
can fun with my childhood things
Would love to take time for self
for there reflects my true inner gulf!
