Just Penned!! – To The Mantle of Thy Love


I’m etching a cave with Thy name
Only now I feel why lovers scribble everywhere
Why they murmur love smoke into solitary air!
As the numbness of solitude etches me
I’m etching a cave with Thy name

The rock is in fact soft to love
Only hearts that touch it are hard
At once this truth struck me, from whence
I etch the cave no more with a barb

The cave reveals its craft
Bleeding in hues of love
Drenching me with Thee,
The sense of Thy name, Thy love

I’ll drill the roof of the cave
To stud it with stars’ maze
To look into the jubilant void
To enjoy Thy graceful gaze

I fear etching to the mantle of Thy love
For I fear Thy fiery mercy
Yet I wish to carve thorough
To tresspass into love and cross the death row

Thank Thee Lord
For giving me a cave
That throbs with life
That in Thy blood bathes

Earth is already a better place !!


Believe! World is not made of countries

Nobody cares who defined the continents

No piece of nature is confined from change

Seas have never intentionally invaded


The boredom of crooks

Have brought the pacts and deals

The wisdom of the wicked

Dream of bringing nature on knees


The grace of the greedy

Has sculpted monopoly

The mercy of the mindless

Has formed the military


Nevertheless humans need a reason to fall in line

It’s all needed only at instances of nerve and spine


Keeping peace is the need

But why disturb it?


Is a question that begs a heed

Believe! World is not made of countries


Rub all the scribbled boundaries

Dump the fences to rust and soil

Breathe some love, come out of the foil

Earth is already a better place to live

Save it from your “ideas” and better leave

To keep peace with what?

I held the podium tight
And shot my haughty words
My sermon didn’t needed a mount
I was not all what I said
Yet I felt good to dictate

I only spake to the masses
And herds of frenzy classes
I evaded speaking to people
For I might sound lying in fact

Amassing the vulnerable together
I injected the venom of hatred
With a smile on my face
I stirred the fire of race

At the cost of my life
With all might and strife
Let me peel the truth
To let you feel the truth

Uniformity is a farce
Homogenity is a lie
It is the objective of a new world
That finds fault with the Lord and cry

The height of every standard sought
Hath only selfish means and sorts
When the whole of creation is in harmony
We culprits blame Him of His hegemony

Scripts are true and speak of love
We interpretors divided love and reserved
Break the void and see the truth
Break into you and save the truth

Stop feeding bullets to solicit peace
Stop planting mines crafting the path to peace
To keep peace with what?
Is the question hot!

Don’t pry upon with the angry birds
Stop rearing the innocent herds

The Shepherd is merciful
See with eyes, not with an eye
Kneel and bow!
Democracy and dictators are dictated you know!
And I say this, to get a blow!
