Mother! nothing I do
Can repay your due!
You gave me every bit of you
You have nurtured me with your hand
With every drop of sweat and blood
Like the river would flood
And mold the land!
You have groomed me with your tears
And sheltered me from pain
Like a tree shades from sun and rain
And soothed my fears
Like the soft rustling leaves
In the cool breeze!
You cradled me as I napped
While the thunder clapped!
You gave me wings to my dreams
So I could fly and nestle in a cloud
And make you proud!
Yet the moist streams
In your eyes
Beckon me to come down to earth
To quench my thirst
Because heaven lies
Beneath the warm
Touch of your palms
That keep me warm
And away from harm
When you take me
Underneath your cool shade!
Take me in your arms
So, I can keep my head
Forever in your lap
Like a bed
Of sloping glade!

What is freedom?

Today is our Independence day
Are we free as we say ?
Can we walk united as one
To build our nation?
Are we free to fly
Like birds flock
in undivided sky ?
Do we understand eachother
And stand together?
Can we free ourselves from an unwelcome thought?
Do we care  to think whether
our actions are liked or not?
We must be like a river
Which freely runs
Bends and turns
Without coming in the way of another
Are we free to  fight for our right?
Like a flower on a windy night!
Yes we can truly be free
If we jointly agree
Like a swarm of bees
Make sweet honey
We too can make free  India lovely!

In God's Keep

I envy you
For only a few
Can  sleep in God's keep
You won't hear me weep
And you won't feel the pain
Of not seeing me again
You are free
From earthly suffering
I am mustering
All my strenght
To numb my brain
Till my tears drain
Yet memories shall remain
In small strains!

I feel like a Zombie
Somebody has robbed me
Of any feeling
My heart is bleeding
Every day I am waking
When I should be sleeping
With my darling
In his grave
I should have been wide awake
When he was dying
Lying by his side till the day's break
I should have been there to save him
And kiss him goodnight till the lights go dim
He must have been in pain
 His eyes must have been searching for me
And I was still sleeping
When he took his last breath
He killed me in death
Cursed that my heart is still beating
No amount of rain or flood
Can wash away the blood
Running through my vein
My mind is insane
I wish to die
Yet my body resists to lie
I am a dead person living
In a world I don't belong
Life has no meaning
As  I hobble along
In its daily song
But I hear no melody
I hurt nobody though my hands are bloody
I am  waitiing for a cry or touch
I love so much
Memories haunt
Like a hellbent hound
I hear its taunt
Rebound and resound
In my dead ears
But  I have no fears
To live life reverse
For better or worse
I am nobody
Just a Zombie
