Just Penned!! – When Nile shies away

I’m not in the limelight
Yet, my life is not sour
I don’t long for chandeliers
I enjoy the moon on my floor

I make a sky of my own
I don’t complain and moan
And I make an eagle’s flight
Unlike a controlled drone!!

I stretch my wings and float
Where no one can cut my throat
I’m not a canoe, not a boat
To stay tied in a stagnant moat

When Nile shies away from me
I make my own fresh water sea
I perch upon the Everest’s lee
And plunge upon what bets me

I know not how to gamble
I neither boast nor shamble
I may be haughty to see
But, that’s what I’m made to be!!

Hatched cracking the hard shell
Breathing the fresh blood’s smell
I can’t afford to carry a wreath
If so, toes will have my throat neath!

Bleak heart is warm now
But with a blood cold
Cold enough to split the sky
And bring a deluge upon the world sly!

Just Penned!! – Put Together

Puzzle, Share, Smartphone, Mobile Phone, Touch, Finger

Virtues suffer;
Vultures prey on them!
Cultures are mocked,
Culprits etch them off!

Souls are indifferent
To see themselves in others
People are fed with hatred
To quench their thirst with blood

Skulls are numb
Truth is dumb
Deafens the shells
Birds no more hum

I’m on the Temple Run
Not caring of all that turns up
I laugh at prank videos
Not aware of being pranked!

My virtues are bought for free food
I go by the apps’ call
I know the harm of drugs
But I’m a chained game buff

I’ve learned to take selfie with corpses
I put a sorrow sticker for the funeral
Smiling at the mobile display
And Yes, I’ll buy the same suit for my funeral!!


Just Penned!! – Brick and Mortar

Brick and mortar
Brick and mortar
Brick and mortar

The world is brick and mortar
We are a mix of soil and water
As many are the soils and waters
So many are our races and colors
The world is brick and mortar
Yes! We are soil and water

As brains are chained with lust
And knowledge is let to rust
And thirst for power is held abreast
Powers are rising, making unrest

Schools made of brick and mortar
Are suffering a digital divide
As information is equated to intellect
Knowledge is plainly slained

This world is brick and mortar
Its a school of love and peace
For hearts to learn and live
To learn to live and let live

The swamp, the mire and the bog
Are all over this brick and mortar
O rain of love and peace!
Pour down upon the mire of lust!
