Humanity And Humility

Where there be humanity?
there be not found humilitymuch humility
there be only impertinent authority


Something Is Missing

A feeling of something missing

be it in life or performance

I really  do not know

keeps me disturbed all the time

lending me a despair and disappointment

that I am unable to overcome

however much I try  hard

and whatever much I do

Why such thoughts come to my mind?

Why  am I so    worked up all the time?

This makes me sad in a way

letting  me in a precarious stay

stumbling through the way

with a sense of insecurity in the sway.

Withdrawing I go into a shell

just smiling to myself

might be the smile is because of

inability and inefficiency

that remains in me

never lets me go into the world

steeped in competition high and dry.images (56)





Resident Of A Shrine.

The morning was beautiful
with plenty of sunshine
the appointment was early
and had to rush through
the morning chores.
As the time was nearing
popped into the car
with my husband on the wheels.
Got down on time
with people looking at me
in a curious note.
I greeted all with cheer
knowing not the reason for stare
while my friend came towards me
took me aside and told me
that I was with one ear stud.
Shocked and amused at the same time
I rushed back home
wore an alternate stud
went back to the appointment
This time also everyone stared at me
for a different reason of vanishing
for a while and then appearing again
showing no feelings met the person
who was not a millionaire or a country’s chief
one not from the material world
but from the external stratosphere
residing in a shrine.

one ear stud.
