One Must Not Tarry

A vision kept,
Can not be sacrificed...
To regret in neglect disrespected.

Awaiting a response,
To make forward steps...
Will only achieve one's unhappiness.

Even if it is loneliness one must face...
One must not tarry,
To keep one's pace.

One Must Learn To Love The Present Good Moment

One must learn to love the present good moment
In itself and for itself
As if there were only it and no other-
One must learn to love the present good moment
Without wondering why it will pass
And why all things must

One must learn to give one’s heart and mind wholly to the present good moment-
And when it is over
Wake from the dream
With joy and gratitude
Despite regretting that the moment is gone.

Some One Must

All challenges must be faced in all eventualities.
We must never abandon even the most harsh reality.
We must light the flame and let it burn.
With hearts that always urn.
With tables that have turned.
Still it becomes what it becomes.
This life is never done.
With one gone their will be another.
Chances just beckoning a person to come to their call.
Will you turn away?
Watch someone else take it.
Or risk another fall.
By a obstacle to overcome.
Some one must.

Sad One, Must You Weep

'SAD one, must you weep alway?
Youth's ill wedded with despair;
Ringless hand and robe of grey
Mock the charms which they declare.'

Sad and sweetly answered she,
'What are comely robes to me?
I would wear a grass green dress,
Dew pearls for my gems--no less
Now can comfort me.'

'Sweet, the shining of your hair
(All forgotten and undone)
Squanders 'neath the veil you wear
Gold whose loss bereaves the sun.'

Very sad and low said she,
'What is shining hair to me?
When from out the rain-wet mold
Kingcups borrow of its gold
Sweet and sweet 'twill be.'

'Love, O Love! your hand is chill
As a snowflake lost in spring,
Wild it flutters--then lies still
As a bird with prisoned wing!'

Sad and patient answered she,
'As a bird I would be free;
As the spring I would find birth
In the sweet, forgetful earth--
Pray you, let it be!'

That's Life One Must Suppose

At the bottom of the social rank and low in self esteem
That's where the haves want to keep the have nots or that's how it does seem
For every new member of the millionaires club there is more poverty
And that people of malnutrition die does not make sense to me,
When many have far more than enough but not enough to satisfy their greed
For them 'twould seem that much wants more that does seem sad indeed
Though some quite wealthy people some of their profits share
Amongst the struggling have nots of the bigger World out there
The social gap keeps widening getting bigger every day
And the poor are getting poorer or so 'twould seem that way
Many hungry and homeless and low in social rank
For the poverty of millions we do have greed to thank
Some have to go for months on end without a change of clothes
And the poor keep getting poorer that's life one must suppose.

One Must Not Play At Second Violin

One must not play at second violin,
sway, pointless puppet dangling on display,
bend as and when it suits, soft putty, clay
moulded to set roles. This pulls heart's string
insultingly, embarrassing must ring,
left stranded, beached, expected to obey
each whim, humiliating interplay
expressing weakness in most everything.

It is not seemly to be seen to know
such slight consideration. Never stay
one moment longer, head high stride away
by daylight to new lodgings, up and go,
swift slam this sham disgraceful. Who bears sharp blow
can't glow, one day high price must piper pay,
success, self-confidence, events gainsay,
bartering hope for wear, must scope forego.

Why stumble, stranger, thrust out from joy's gates,
some 'thing' unworthy of the least respect,
in circumstances scarcely circumspect?
This parody of principles, translates
treason, sharing's reason repudiates.
Look at yourself, your motives deep inspect.
Look once again, if motives are suspect
this complicates love's idyll, desecrates.

So Long As One Lives

SO LONG AS ONE LIVES

So long as one lives one must
Believe in and look for

Fierce One

Fierce one must keep afraid of ferocious one,
You are medallion of hope, and metal of future;
Yet they describe a fool to disarray the feeders
And givers of fear and folly, of gradients and grievances.

Sonnet-This World is one

This world is one and all people are one;
All came from Adam, Eve- our first parents;
The Sky has many stars but single Sun;
The Decalogue remains our common fence.

The modern world is moving to be one;
The divisions of nations can't stay long;
The foes of man are always on the run;
Man must decide what’s right and what is wrong.

Goodness shall triumph always o'er evil;
All Atheists must realize one God;
Each one must win the war with the devil;
And prove that we are made from special clod.

The good or bad we do will affect all;
Improper decisions, we all must stall.

Sonnet: Each One's Life is Different

We need not do all things that others do;
We need not buy all things that others buy;
Let us remain amongst the Righteous few;
And keep God's tenets, till the day we die.

The food we eat is just to live life's-span;
The wealth we earn is always left behind;
Just take the good or bad, we can;
Just Peace of mind on earth, we try to find.

It does not matter if your life is posh;
It does not matter if you're poor from birth;
One's dirty soul's linen, each one must wash;
Before we die in order to gain Mirth.

But God is merciful without limits,
But sin grows mortally in size like nits.

What Happens When One Comes To The End Of The Road?

WHAT HAPPENS WHEN ONE COMES TO THE END OF THE ROAD?

What happens when one comes to the end of the road?
When one has done what one has done
And can only do more of the same-
When one is stuck where one is and can only go one way- down?

What happens when one has come to the end of the road?
And is forbidden to take the easy way out?
And one knows one is only going deeper into sickness and frustration failure and pain?

What happens when one comes to the end of the road?
And there is still much time and space ahead
In which one must live?

A hard life it is
And a harder one it is going to be.

Sonnet: How One Should Live

Emulate man must, the good in others;
Not the vices that lead to take quick stardom;
Flock together birds of the same feathers;
Empoisoned a soul, recovers seldom.

Spirit when denatured, can’t be consumed;
To gain Heaven, renounce one must Satan;
That God is very kind, man has assumed;
Evil-minds could need the whip and baton.

Judged will be ev’n insane by the Maker;
Man dare not ev’r play a demigod’s role;
The Feast is open; where is the taker?
Through good deeds, man must splint his ‘fractured soul.’

A rich man’s soul may live in poverty!
Heaven’s far from one’s earthly liberty.

On Those Days One Prays

When one prays,
A seeking from the outside...
Begins within!
To identify miracles,
One must sit in a quietness...
That has come to visit upon request.
When one prays...
The mind should be at rest.

When one prays,
A thankfulness should be first expressed.
With an appreciation for those blessings,
One sometimes ignores but gets!
When one prays.

When one prays,
A seeking from the outside...
Begins within!
To identify miracles,
One must sit in a quietness...
That has come to visit upon request.
When one prays...
The mind should be at rest.

With a confession professed,
As a thankfulness one expresses.
On those days one prays.

One goes for it

It will be considered as treasure
If you announce it with pleasure
Adding fragrance to it if made sure
What it would be and today what we are

Even though we are far
Still we will be yaar (friend) *
I shall love and miss
But later on live with peace

Why to worry?
Why to feel sorry?
When it is holy and forever
I shall forget it never

You shall have your world
I shall have my fold
Yet friendship is divine
One must feel it fine

Not all can dream it nicely
It is purest form and lovely
One feels easy and at rest
As it is considered best

You drive home
You may be greeted with welcome
It is bond with feeling
One goes for it and always willing

One Might Laugh At This

One might laugh at this but it is not a joke
He thinks the 'Indian Myna' is about Indian Culture one must feel for the poor bloke
He does not know that the myna is a bird born with wings for to fly
That ignorance is bliss to him has to apply
His right to his opinions him none should deny
But why he comments on others one has to wonder why
Since he hasn't a clue what he's talking about
Of his lack of knowledge he doesn't leave one in doubt
Why he should think that an indian myna should have anything to do with Indian Culture seems perplexing to me
As knowledge goes he is one in poverty
I do honestly feel he should call it a day
By that I mean give writing comments away
He does show his ignorance by the comments he write
And his type not an asset to any poetry web site.

One's Addictive Behaviour

To alcohol he lost his young daughter and wife
He says they were not wrong to walk out of his life
For addictive behaviour the price one must pay
And he is one person who sees it this way.

To keep on drinking alcohol the choice he did make
Though he knew in his heart that this was a mistake
He made the wrong choice with his marriage at stake
One's addictive behaviour can cause others heartbreak.

One's addictive behaviour can come at a huge cost
With abuse of health and broken marriages so much to be lost
An addiction of any sort is not a good thing
And the praises of addictive behaviour you won't hear many sing.

For the break up of his marriage his wife he does not blame
Though that he chose alcohol above her and their daughter does cause him some shame
But at conquering an addiction few seem to succeed
'Tis a human frailty the weakness of need.

No One Can Defy

No one can defy
No one can deny
The truth behind
One must try to find

Who we are?
What for we are?
Why stars are far?
What on earth we are for!

Not much to break
Not so loud to speak
Feel great and not weak
Embrace the people and greet

Love is only message
Was yesterday, may remain tomorrow and for ages
I feel strange but agree
As we are human being and very free

I shall and forever
Forget not ever
Just be in me for time to come
Stand in wait and always welcome

I wish to cry
But may be futile try
She will not tolerate and feel shy
Why at all then I must attempt to fly?

Mari to carry my entire burden
But she did not promise it all of sudden
She has waited to respond
I stand still as am very fond

I fly in air only to come back
Find the truth so much at stake
What if she refuses to align?
I must take course and safely resign

I should not be selfish
Every one is going to perish
Let there be honor and trust
What is to be left behind is clear and must

No one should

No one should know either
When the storm withered
No one should notice the death
Until time comes to lay the wreath

The starts twinkle since centuries
No one take note of their injuries
Living in dark for countless years
They make little noise to be heard in our ears

Still they are seen with little on and off appearance
They are known already and nee no special reference
They might have cried ceaselessly not to be seen in dark
Still they are high in sky and always ready to embark

They have their position fully earmarked
No one has snatched it or ever staked
It is not easy to swim against odd current
One has to reach the shore and stay in present

Time and tide waits for none
This has been made always known
Whether you accept willingly or with reluctance
You must present it with new element’s inductance

Fortune favors the brave and luck sides with honest
One must believe in fate and try his best
God too may shower His blessing
Even if something goes totally missing

I do not remember how many nights have gone sleepless
I have remained under sky watching its vastness
I thank almighty for allowing me to witness greatness
One can attain anything in life with strong resolution and keenness

Sky will not fall

Sky will not fall if I die
Nobody will shed tears and say good bye
Soul may have upward journey and fly
Death is certain and no one has to try

We feel proud of being beautiful
Never bother about others and act sinful
Knowing fully well that it has to fade anytime
Still take care and maintain it as object prime

I fall prey to easy game
New tactics to get easy fame
Tried to capture whatever was easy
Whole hearted try and remained always busy

It is not easy to swim across
Path so difficult and hurdles to cross
Still one has try and remain in fray
Seek His blessings with sincerity to pray

One must understand the futility of mission
Conscious may not allow for frank admission
Will have to surrender to thy with submission
As day may approach and end your session

Nothing will stop at your sudden demise
People may flock and rush to your premise
May take oath to carry on with promises
Life will be crucial with all near misses

Have to dig in well with firm roots
No short cuts with definite routes
You may not be remembered as holy person
But definite cause to be called as genuine person

Try to lead life as normal way
No more power show of strength and power play
Earth may consume body with simple clay
Mortals may not remain but only name will stay

Calef In Boston, 1692

IN the solemn days of old,
Two men met in Boston town,
One a tradesman frank and bold,
One a preacher of renown.
Cried the last, in bitter tone:
'Poisoner of the wells of truth!
Satan's hireling, thou hast sown
With his tares the heart of youth!'
Spake the simple tradesman then,
'God be judge 'twixt thee and me;
All thou knowed of truth hath been
Once a lie to men like thee.
'Falsehoods which we spurn to-day
Were the truths of long ago;
Let the dead boughs fall away,
Fresher shall the living grow.
'God is good and God is light,
In this faith I rest secure;
Evil can but serve the right,
Over all shall love endure.
'Of your spectral puppet play
I have traced the cunning wires;
Come what will, I needs must say,
God is true, and ye are liars.'
When the thought of man is free,
Error fears its lightest tones;
So the priest cried, 'Sadducee!'
And the people took up stones.
In the ancient burying-ground,
Side by side the twain now lie;
One with humble grassy mound,
One with marbles pale and high,
But the Lord hath blest the seed
Which that tradesman scattered then,
And the preacher's spectral creed
Chills no more the blood of men.
Let us trust, to one is known
Perfect love which casts out fear,
While the other's joys atone
For the wrong he suffered here.
