The poem that makes you cry

Why did he write the poem that makes
You cry? Did he intend to make you sad
For the whole day?
He didn’t. He is simply talking about
Himself. It is not about you.It is about his
Own sorrow. The dead ants, the shadow
Of the sun folded and kept in the corner.
The goats that have to go. The lines of your
Palms that you follow. The stars in the
Heavens. The fact that ultimately there
Was no pot of gold at the end of the rainbow.
They are true. I have seen how they happen.
With him on the grassy plain. There is
Always a story to tell. This time you come.
And you find yourself immersed. You are
Like us and so you cry. It is you in us.
It won’t last long anyhow. We shall soon
Part ways, as he once did. Earlier.

The Poem That Makes You Alive

from the office the paper works pile up
like a mountain where you walk only a few steps
where it is so steep
and you want to rest on the grass because you feel like
you are dying in a minute
and they understand why sometimes you have to stop
and get some air from the window facing the sea

when you go home for lunch
with your wife
your shoulder hangs a little bit down
like a hanging plant from a branch of an old tree
your eyes are drooping
and you lose your appetite
not the food but for life itself
you have been doing things by compulsion
this bread and butter thing
this normal course
this work that is dictated upon us
society moves like a clockwork
office like a jail
the world like a cell to you

you keep your computer open
after lunch you sit in front of it again
punch the letters and tell the screen
this is my life
this could have been my work

writing poems, this poem and the rest of the poems
this makes you alive
without milk without the cradle without the bottle

Love That Makes You

Is it only friendly love that makes you to energize?
Living in full memory to show something and organize?
I fully acknowledge the fact and politely sympathize
As person should never be discouraged or cut to the size

Every individual has his own moral and some ethics
He may have different thinking and basics
We can’t force on him some outdated standard
As life is meant for looking forward

Some of the gestures are well appreciated all the times
Whether it comes to the making of new friends sometimes
Or making fantastic search for life companion
That all works on same pattern to seek a union

It is source of great inspiration
There may lie many questions
As to how it must be tackled
And how to remove it from being mislead

It is weakness of human mind that person is blinded
By outer beauty and sometimes not at all bonded
It requires great courage and peace of mind
As we try to seek and go in search for new find

Once mind is set then there won’t be further delay
It may result in to great surprises and much to our dismay
Yet it is life and one ex expected to honor his verdict
As the life is precious and has unique feature as distinct

You can’t function in isolation
Somewhere or at some point you want good relation
You got to walk with in harmony and in tune
As you are subjected to an error and not completely immune

Wondring Aloud

Wondring aloud --
How we feel today.
Last night sipped the sunset --
My hands in her hair.
We are our own saviours
As we start both our hearts beating life
Into each other.
Wondring aloud --
Will the years treat us well.
As she floats in the kitchen,
Im tasting the smell
Of toast as the butter runs.
Then she comes, spilling crumbs on the bed
And I shake my head.
And its only the giving
That makes you what you are.

The Very Thing That Makes You Rich

My father told me, lying on his bed of death,
"boy," he says, "woman she's gonna make it, don't fool your self
'cause she's got something to make a man lay that money, uh, right in her hand
And the very thing that makes her rich will make you poor
The very thing that makes her rich will make you poor"
That's right!
Well, i put you behind the wheel of a deuce and a quarter, yes i did
Had you living like a rich man's daughter, yes i did, i sure did
While you were living high on the hog
You had me down here scuffling like a dog
Well, the very thing that makes you rich makes me poor
The very thing that makes you rich makes me poor
Don't you never ever make such a bad mistake
You know i'd rather climb into bed with a rattlesnake
Then to work hard every day bringing that woman all my pay
The very thing that makes you rich makes me poor,
Makes me so damn poor
The thing that makes her rich makes me poor
The very thing that makes you rich make me poor
Very thing that makes you rich makes me poor
Makes me so damned poor
Money won't change it, no no...

The Comma That Makes The Big Difference

the children who walk and pass along the road
where your house is facing are always noisy

you pay attention to what they are talking about
you call it nonsense and it angers your quest for deep understanding

you are quite sad and very unhappy
in your chosen niche of silent isolation

they are carefree and unconcerned about you
happy about their nonsense & selfishness


there is a big difference between you and them
that i think, you must explore some more

it is the comma that makes the big difference
in the sentence that you have duly imposed upon your self.

The Truth That Sets You Free!

the worth of truth lies not
in whether Buddha said it,
Jesus said it, or even one of
the great thinkers or poets
said it...
the worth of truth lies in
whether you've experienced it,
felt it, lived it, whether it
is exuded through the pores of
your very being...
this is the truth that sets
you free... the truth that changes,
breathes, and lives!

The Fish That You Caught With Your Fishing Rod

the fish that you caught with your fishing rod
while you were alone at sea

tastes more delicious than the one that you
bought in the market

you have worked for it
you waited for long to catch it and hold it with your bare hands

you can still feel the vibrations of the nylon string
which caught the mouth of the fish

that now you are cooking and eating
the excitement still resounds inside your tongue

Whatever It Is That Makes You Happy

Whatever it is that makes you happy,
Happiness given is what it takes.
Left alone happiness can not create...
Or bring one to a joyful state!
If unknown to one who waits!

Whatever it is that makes you happy,
It can not start from outside with a touch!
Whatever it is begins from inside...
Nurture it with pride,
And your eyes will notice much!
What attracts and subtracts your joy,
Will no longer be employed as a crutch!

The Strings That Tie You Down

Youre so close to tellin me youre leaving
Packin up your things and leavin town
If you can walk away the rest is easy
Once you cut the strings that tie you down
Just look me in the eye and say its over
Just tell me you dont want me around
Once you say goodbye, its gone forever
Once you cut the strings that tie you down
Theres no way I can picture me without you
I still think of you in your wedding gown
If I have to give you up, may God be with you
Once you cut the strings that tie you down

Liking the kind of guy you are

i'm loving the kind of guy you are,
when you open up,
you proving to me more and more,
that you are not like the other guys,
you are special,
we both have a past with pain,
i love how you always put me first,
it makes me feel special,
but at times,
i wish you can open up more,
and share your emotions with me,
i will like to know more,
of what's in that big heart of yours,
at times it feels like,
you are just as scared as me,
about opening up,
i won't see you no different,
we are all human,
you will still be my repo man,
my caring, sweet man,
that i am growing to like.

The Magic That Surrounds You

The magic hats around you
The magic that surrounds you
Is the kind of magic
Youre the very heart of
Its the magic in the trees
The magic on a breeze
Its the magic of the world
Which youre a part of.
Open your eyes boy
Open your heart and soul
Let the world embrace you
And youre on your way
Open your eyes boy
Open your mind and body
The world is filled with magic everyday
The magic thats around you
The magic that surrounds you
Is a magic that is yours
If you believe it
Its the magic in the air
The magic everywhere
If youre open to its power
Youll receive it
Look at your life boy
Look at that road ahead
Starting from this moment
You must find your way
Look at your mind boy
Every path leads to adventure
Life is what you make it everyday
Everyday

A World That Makes You Wonder

There are people, mainly bosses
who get rid of the best
and replace them with the worst.
Hoping that the worst
are going to perform miracles,
but all they do is drag the firm down.

In education, the worst
are applauded and awarded
for wasting money
that should be used
for furthering education.
Bring it up to higher standards.

Yet if you work hard,
you are chastised for doing so.
The Government will bend over backwards
to help those who never want to work.
However, those who do work hard
normally end up on a minimum wage.

My conclusion to all this is,
well it is very simple.
They lazier you are,
the better thought of you are.
You will get all the praise and benefits.
Work hard and they will just use you
to do the work the lazy ones should do.

The Fire That Keeps You Warm

Let me walk in the sunshine of your smile
Let me hide in the shadows of your eyes
Let me lie in the safety of your arms
And let me be the fire that keeps you warm
Ill keep you warm
Let me be the someone that you need
Let me be the shelter that you seek
Let me be your strength when you are weak
And let me be the fire that keeps you warm
Let me walk in the sunshine of your smile
Let me hide in the shadows of your eyes
Let me lie in the safety of your arms
And let me be the fire that keeps you warm
Ill keep you warm
Let me be the one always around
Let me help you up when you are down
Let me make a smile out of a frown
And let me be the fire that keeps you warm
Let me walk in the sunshine of your smile
Let me hide in the shadows of your eyes
Let me lie in the safety of your arms
And let me be the fire that keeps you warm
Ill keep you warm
Let me be the fire that keeps you warm

Dance With The One That Brought You

Well he shines like a penny in a little kid's hand
When he's out on a Saturday night
He's a real go-getter and the best two-stepper you'll see
But when I'm sittin' alone at a table for two
'Cause he's already out on the floor
I think about somethin' that my mama used to say to me
You got to dance with the one that brought you
Stay with the one that want's you
The one who's gonna love you when all of the others go home
Don't let the green grass fool you
Don't let the moon get to you
Dance with the one that brought you and you can't go wrong

He's got his old best buddies and his new best friends
And all the girls give him the eye
He's a good time Charlie and the life of the party tonight
But when I think about another well I don't think twice
'Cause there'll never be another like him
I know he really loves me and I think maybe mama was right

You got to dance with the one that brought you
Stay with the one that want's you
The one who's gonna love you when all of the others go home
Don't let the green grass fool you
Don't let the moon get to you
Dance with the one that brought you and you can't go wrong

You've got to dance with the one that brought you
and you can't go wrong

Love Makes Us What We Are

Love may be a delusion
But its the only real thing

We exaggerate the virtues of those we love
To us they are the universe
But to the Universe they are dust

We hype their Goodness
And their Beauty
And all that we love in them
But what are they to the stars?

Love all Love
Makes us what we are
No matter the dust and humble the stars.

That Person You Are

Sometimes I sit with wishes,
Wanting you to be someone different...
Than the person you are.

I have my fantasies of you being,
Warm and romantic.
And you finding me...
A delicious meal to eat.

And when I pray before I go to sleep,
I pray for someone other than you...
To show up in my dreams.
Someone that has your qualities...
But without your moods and distant attitudes.

Sometimes I sit with wishes,
Wanting you to be someone different...
Than the person you are.
And yet that person you are,
Is the one I fell in love with.

Wondring Again

Theres the stillness of death on a deathly unliving sea,
And the motor car magical world long since ceased to be,
When the eve-bitten apple returned to destroy the tree.
Incestuous ancestrys charabanc ride,
Spawning new millions throws the world on its side.
Supporting their far-flung illusion, the national curse,
And those with no sandwiches please get off the bus.
The excrement bubbles,
The centurys slime decays
And the brainwashing government lackeys
Would have us say
Its under control and well soon be on our way
To a grand year for babies and quiz panel games
Of the hot hungry millions youll be sure to remain.
The natural resources are dwindling and no one grows old,
And those with no homes to go to, please dig yourself holes.
We wandered through quiet lands, felt the first breath of snow.
Searched for the last pigeon, slate grey Ive been told.
Stumbled on a daffodil which she crushed in the rush, heard it sigh,
And left it to die.
At once felt remorse and were touched by the loss of our own,
Held its poor broken head in her hands,
Dropped soft tears in the snow,
And its only the taking that makes you what you are.
Wondring aloud will a son one day be born
To share in our infancy
In the childs path weve worn.
In the aging seclusion of this earth that our birth did surprise
Well open his eyes.

You have the right to feel, you are successful

Success, sweet success
Success, it is waiting for you
To own and hold on to it

Success of any kind
Has easy access
If you are after it restlessly

Success is not indeed the end
It is the beginning of a
New chain of successes

Simple it is to be successful
So simple, you wonder how many of us are not at it

It all depends on what you feel
Success means to you
You may school your thoughts
And train your emotions
To feel successful on everything
That happens around you

Your retention of all your
Physical, mental and social abilities
Is indeed your success

Your ability to make friends
And help them out in times of need
Is indeed your success

Your ability to keep your cool
In emotionally competing events
And situations
Is indeed your success

Your ability to make your ends meet
Come over challenges, emotional or otherwise
At the right time and in a rightful manner
Is indeed a success

Your ability to stand up
And hold on to your values
Is indeed a success

Your ability to be able to
Discharge your assigned responsibilities
Is indeed your success

Your ability to objectively assess
People and events
Without painting them subjectively
Is indeed your success

Your ability to stay most of your time positive
Progressive and productive
Creative and innovative
Is indeed your success

Your ability to hold on to
Your original traits
Without succumbing to the temptations
Of becoming someone else
Is indeed your success

If this forms your scale to measure success
You have the right to feel
You are successful
