A New Me

The world I knew, is not known to me anymore

The raindrops I saved in papercups are overflowing with tears.

My land  is forbidden to me and to those whom I’d let in

Run away lil’ one is what all said

You will find new doors everywhere ahead.

But do I want to run away or do I wish to stay and set things right.

Gone are the days when you were tiny and weak

Remember my words whenever you fall meek.

The Voice

With every wind I feel so cold,

Your words are bare and ever so bold.

“Turn to me and face me like a man,” said the Wind

She fell on her knees and begged,” I cannot stand.”

And then she heard

The voice she kept dismissing all her life

It demanded support and strong will like it was his wife

“Move along the path, he said

You will fulfill your journey and your road will end.”

“Will it be a happy one?” she asked

He smiled and said with all his heart,

“My child, fear not coz I am near,

Believe in me and I will hear.”

The Rookie

Strength and might was everything they saw in him

What they overlooked was the softness that laid deep within.

He lifted tons of weight and walked miles without a sound

They took it for his huge arms and gave him more ground.

He was shy and subtle with all that he did

Never did he hurt a fly or a kid.

For every show, he was groomed like a bride

and never did he show that the one he loved died.

He danced and sang for all the other kinds

and with every tune he was strangled tighter in his own binds.

His fame reached borders and his work become intense

with every effort he made, his pain grew dense.

Never could he muster the courage to run away

because he loved them dearly all his way.

And then, 

Came a day that none could surpass

the silent old rookie died, and 

was at peace atlast.
