Eternal Bliss: Poem

ETERNAL BLISS

By Vijay Kumar Roy

 

With spirit of Savitri

Devotion of Sita

Sacrifice of Urmila and

Learning of Vidyottama

She enlightens me

With her innovative wisdom.

 

An embodiment of Radha

Who had no enmity with Gopis,

She is an absolute example

Of a modern woman.

 

Standing straight

Against the wind of fears

Pain and pleasure don’t influence her.

 

Having imbibed the values:

Personal, social, moral and professional,

She best exemplifies

A true wife, mother and professional.

 

Meeting once one is captured

In a mesh

Of her virtues

That suffice for eternal bliss.

Transition: Poem

TRANSITION

By Vijay Kumar Roy

 

Sandwiched between two cultures:

Her own and that of the West

She is unable to pave the way

For her progeny to embrace peace.

 

The current of her river had been very strong

But the mighty Mughals and British changed its course,

They mixed the sugar and salt

And made her heterogeneous.

 

The obstinacy of heterodox takes lives each day

Suicide, rape, murder have crossed the limits

The ghastly diseases have weakened the pillars of democracy

And fresh air has fear of strong wind.

 

Each dream of a Messiah gets broken

Ravanas have broadened their empires,

Love and fraternity fear of brutality

Can we call it an inevitable transition of humanity?

Love the Way

by 

Just love the way you lie

Love the way you hurt me

Love the way you said goodbye

Love the way you betrayed me

 

Love the way you made me believe in you

Love the way you never actually cared

Love the way you lied about loving me too

Love all those lies that you shared

 

Love the way you treated me like a fool

Love the way you made all those fake promises

Love the way you just used me like a tool

Love the way you included me in your choices

 

Love the way you used to touch

Love the way I thought I could forget you

Love the way I hate you so much

Hate the way I’ll always love you

LIFE IS NO WIN! OR IS IT?

By KOKETSO M. MARISHANE

Too much heat burns
Too much cold freezes
Too much water drowns you
And no water kills you

A poor man sleeps with a hungry stomach
A rich man don’t sleep at all

It’s interesting for rich people to see how poor people live
But
It’s also interesting for poor people to see how hard rich people work

Time is a killer
Time is a healer
And life is no win.

THE GOLDEN AGE

By KANWARINDER SINGH RANA

AGE is a CLOCK and LIFE is a MAZE.

WATER & MUD have a LIVE-IN relation,

Just as the NIGHTS with the DAYZ.

 

Born as INFANTS, Use to drink MILK and PISS in my PAINTS.

CUDDLE next to my MAMA’s breast, FEARLESS when in DAD’s arms,

Cried for a while then lil rest, like a SWEET kiddo always CALM.

WAS THAT A GOLDEN AGE???

 

Being a TODDLER kept everyone on their TOES,

Glass, metal, open doors were my FOES.

WORDS were new and charged with ENERGY,

An APPLE of everybody’s EYE formed my own CLERGY.

WAS THAT A GOLDEN AGE???

 

RHYMES & FAIRY TALES took me to another WORLD,

Twinkle Twinkle lil stars OR Humpty Dumpty never forgotten even a single WORD.

SMART wonders use to ROAR like THUNDERS, SWEET chirping of the lil BIRDS,

Use to move together while making a HERD.

WAS THAT THE GOLDEN AGE???

 

Age of PUBERTY brought some XCITEMENT,Felt new changes and did many XPERIMENT.

Voice becam HUSKY,Dreams became LUSTY,many liked TALL,few liked BUSTY.

Forgot the HISTORY, CHEMISTRY was a MYSTERY.

Rectangle – Triangle tried every ANGLE,BIOLOGY never truned out to be +ve IDEOLOGY.

WAS THAT THE GOLDEN AGE???

 

Copy in the back of the JEAN & borrowed pen was a part of daily LIFE,

College was FAR therefore DAD bought a new BIKE.

STUDIED hard brought FAMILY a good NAME,

Did a FUCKUP got hurt in the dirty GAME.

Was TAUGHT,”Good & Bad goes side by side”,

But to achieve SUCCESS u don’t need a DEGREE but a VISION that TOO WIDE.

WAS THAT THE GOLDEN AGE???

 

JOB plays and important ROLE,Helps FULFILL the LIFE’s GOAL.

HANDSOME salary & HEART THROBBING life partner is everybody’s DREAM,

And only a FOOL will miss this mouth watering CAKE with lots of CREAM.

OPPOSITE partner is always addressed as BETTER half & often leaves behind a SPECIAL MARK,

XCEPTIONAL cases are always there,SOME gets to BEND from a STRAIGHT line to a PERFECT ARC.

SHOULD THAT B COUNTED AS GOLDEN AGE!!!

 

A TIME will come when the LIGHT will be dimmed from this STAR,

And NECTAR will all be gone from this FLOWER.

FATE is WRITTEN & STAGE will be SET,

Have to finish the JOURNEY with watever is LFET.

LEAVING all the GRUDGES and CARRYING no RAGE,

I WONDER if that could be THE GOLDEN AGE.
