Alok Singhal Poems
How Far Have We Come?
How far have we come?
To not to look back on what we left behind
Happiness is judged by the bourses
Our fates are decided by the downturn or an upsurge
No time for us to stop and think
Coz we might lose so much in a blink
Simplicity is a thing of the past
When did we meet our brethren last?
Remember the last time we said a prayer?
When was the last feast with the mayor?
Ever wrote a letter to mom and dad lately?
Remember the last time you had a look inside?
To sum up the total of good and bad
Was it more that you gave than what you had? ...
Prelude To 'You'
You...it was only you who I could feel was mine..
But I didn't know that the twist of fate is such a swine..
You..left me with nothing but few thoughts sublime..
Don't You..remember the time..
The first time I touched you..& your eyes started to dance...
was it my first brush with romance?
Or was it just my imagination?
For when you left me...with each step you took away from me..I could still see your eyes dance...
But perhaps the touch..is not mine but someone else...
