Beginning And End
When I came to the end of the world my mind was ready to let go of
Some people come to this world for a purpose, to accomplish a task, and when its done
Different But Similar, Similar Yet Diffe...
Two chili plants With identical origins They are of the same kind
Dreams and memories collected and bundled together lie under and around headstones that stand to scar the earth at random intervals.
Not Renunciation Just Giving Up
I have given up everything I held dear but it was not renunciation
Evening sky full of stars, clouds, blue SPACE space, of course
Your Plan - My Travel
I am a traveler traveling alone itinerary is not mine planning is not mine
Eyes that keep waiting the day can only weep in sleepless cold night
I couldn’t take your hand we couldn’t make family we couldn’t even say we love each other but
Your cooking is great I told you once you offered to teach me because you love me
Come, be with me Don’t say a word Just be in front of me
Mind The Almighty Or Is It?
Mind, the almighty Beginning of everything Most powerful, lightning fast Travel great distances
I Am Still Waiting
Far far away the horizon gradually loses its splendor resisting reluctance not to.
Two Crows Sitting On A Dead Tree Against...
What are you folks Discussing? As we normally believe crows do, only talk about the next meal,
It is time again
to come to see you
Every year I bring my self
to see you or what remains
My soul sees you, feels you
everyday every second
Will the headstone
find me different this time?
Yes, I am new but
nothing has changed
