Can Do Better?

Day 78

I wish the world becomes a better place to live.

No misery, treachery or guilt.

All I wish for is –

Happiness, harmony and peace.

Each of us spread love, bring smiles

and care of the betterment of the other.

We need to be better humans with every passing day.

Is it fair for me to still hope this way?

The Silent Ones

Day 10

You do not talk much.

You are a loner.

You are socially awkward.

You spend time with books.

You like your own company.

But what are you going to do

When you are put in a spot

And when you are expected to talk?

Do not put on a mask

Your words of wisdom will make the mark.

Enlightened

They watch over you with their keen and judgy eyes

Surrounded by dark red clouds emitting an aura of jealousy and envy

They look down upon you to make you feel worthless

You take a step back – 

Fear in your eyes

You try to hide your pain 

The pressure is pulling you down

You feel weak in your knees

You’re afraid of being consumed by the darkness once you blink your eyes

So, you look straight ahead with passion in your eyes

The fear slowly seems to fade away

The redness of the clouds begins to turn into a pale white light

Suddenly, you are struck by the lightning of enlightenment

Now, you feel whole and satiated.
