Just Penned!! – The Prison of Faith

Image result for prison of faith

Not chained down!
Not locked in!
But for the fear,
I’m almost near!

No bars around,
Mercy fills abound
I love lying still,
In the prison of faith!

My awestruck eyes
Keep seeing Him
At once so near,
At once afar

Nothing parts
Nothing binds
There He is, clear!
There He is, blinding!

I’m frozen in faith
In love with the prison
I pray not to be set free
From His cozy, cozy cuddle

Just Penned!! – When dervish stops to whirl

When dervish stops to whirl
The earth will come to pause
Until love whirls in hearts
Soul will outshine the stars

The body is just a reed
Through which flows the truth
Let the air of truth leave as music
And sheath the earth with love

When music of truth hit souls around
Veins rise to the oneness
Flesh and blood forgetting its race
Whirl with love and goodness

Whirl, shrug all the difference
Exist lighter than the lightest
The beloved is not superheavy
And never carries the haughtily heavy

When dervish stops to whirl
The earth will come to pause
Until love whirls in hearts
Soul will outshine the stars

Just Penned!! – Slums of the Earth

Slums of the earth are habituated dump yards
Where the selfishness of rich is dumped
Poor make ends meet with plasters;
Plasters that are often expired!

Recyclable wastes make their rooves,
Make their living and their lives!
Recycled things never reach the rich homes
Anything recycled isn’t mercy in real!

Slums of the earth are habituated dump yards
Dumped with greedy and fools
The greedy keep running with the fortunes
Followed by the chasing fools

Earth, is not a slum in real,
It stinks with the greedy’s stools!
What the hell are we gonna learn,
From selfish and greedy schools?!

Just Penned!! – Sword of wisdom

Sword of wisdom
Never slits coward minds;
Nor peels the skin of darkness
Or make a wound for the light to enter

Coward minds are those,
That cling to that what is to die,
To the corpse that they live in,
To the thought that they exist!

Chains of belief,
Never set you fly in faith!
When the sky is a farce,
Coward minds dream of the stars!

Humble, humble, humble!
At once, bow to the sword
Let all the greed bleed out
Feel light off the flesh
Feel the light’s gushing rush
Let the mind face its fate,
Let wisdom kill its bate

You can’t live in the womb forever;
Nor you deserve the doom!
After all, life is an instance of memory,
Wisdom the epitomizes the bloom!

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!

Just Penned!! – The Music of Oneness

Related image

Notes from the strings of Mirabai
Smudge into the Ney of Rumi
The fragrance of music spilling in colors
Brings into love, the corpses of the worlds

There dances, Rumi, Mira, Majnoon and Laila
All in their own realms of love
They know not each other, but their beloved
So poisonous is the music of oneness

The syllables of love’s score
Keeps the light of oneness alive
The omnipresence of music
Orchastrates the resonating time

There in the soul,
Love drizzles in rhyme
Drenched in the hymn
Soul trembles and chimes

The music of oneness
Melts the soul into nothing
From where it bleeds
Into the realm of oneness

“Form or formless
God is oneness”,
The music of oneness
Feeds this to the soul

The greed to be larger than life
Reduces to a drop of love
With the music of oneness brimming within
“I” melts within, within, within

O deluge of music!
Kill me to the atom
O deluge of oneness!
Leave me not, but Thee!

O! Melt me, melt me, melt me love
In Thee, is my crest and trough
When I stop to wave on earth
Dwell me in Thy silent “Hum”

Just Penned!! – At the nth of infinity

Image result for mathematical symbols

I’m “x” for you, and I’m at the nth of my value
I guess I’m larger than the largest of numbers
I’m invariably variable,
And people die to find my value

When divided to zero, I’m the reminder
When divided, I’m the divisive quotient
When divided, I multiply at large
When divided, I leave you at awe

I’m so whole, that I’m not further divisible
I’m so large, that I’m no further visible
I’m so complex that no decoding possible
I’m so compound that none reaches the core

I can’t be assumed
I can’t be assigned a value
I’m not what you assume or assign
I’m that you can’t guess that’s divine

No tangents touch my center
No measures exist to my diameter
I don’t fix into shapes
I’m not from the planet of the apes

See! I’m immaculate
See! I’m hard for you to calculate
Assign not yourself a limit
You are the “x”,
Find your value to find mine!

At the nth of infinity
What could be the value of “x”?!

Just Penned!! – If not for unity

I’m not neatly dressed
I don’t deserve a square meal
I’m a deserted soul depressed
To walk tall, I should kneel

The tankers I saw in News
The bombings I read in papers
Are just foot away from me
My freedom is being left over

The pride of living in a nation
Has diminished being on the sidewalk
The queue at the forces’ ration
Hurts my esteem and shuts my talk

Excluded from the tables
That allied to rain bombs
I’m roaming puzzled midst the shambles
With tears rolling to quench tombs

The elite camouflaged beings
Invest people to rig the world out;
Wage war with their savings,
And dump them into common graves

The seed of venom
Has creeped neath the hearts
For the want of vanity power
Corpses fight tough and hard

To teach history,
And excavate pride
Wars are waged,
Reasons are staged

Stop planting the mines
Let the shed blood dry
If not for unity
Pass on to let live with dignity
