Broken Disciple
Broken Disciple

My pilgrims journey started out strong
9 years and a decade later my story and song 
Have turned into a heartless cycle
May I share about a broken disciple?

Took up my yoke and followed thee
‘Twas an easy burden initially
The path lo...Read More

Feeling deep regret for our misguided debt
Which gives us pause realizing the hurt we’ll cause
So let's raise our glasses to the lads and lasses
Who will bear the brunt on the battlefront

Dorian in high dudgeon
For such a low gudgeon, Dorian in high dudgeon.
The puppet popped atop amid internal turmoil,
Of the Russian, for the Russian and by the Russian,
He spent nearly 3 years trafficking spoils

Thanks to his shameless Sharpie...Read More

I poured myself into your onyx eyes scene;
wanted you to see my soul, and its story.
Like you, brother whale, I endure life’s tough schemes; 
while navigating in  seas, sunlit glory.

No medal beams on your marvelous bold breast; 
yet, like...Read More

Unease can string
A caustic fling

Urgent words cite
A crispy write

Use can amuse
A mad peruse

Do flip a flap
And give a clap

Ask twist to turn
A clever churn

Pretty proud praise
Can now erase

Feel the frost freeze
Squeeze in cold breeze 

Come to the front
And bear the...Read More

Respect Women
Why do our women have to bear the brunt?
Of simpleton men, Neanderthal like grunt.
Proving power through threats and manipulation.
Only proves, I say with no hesitation.
Some men lack true character, inside they are empty.
More a caricature, than real, and quite simply.

Know it All
There is an age that parents fear,
A time when manners disappear.
When siblings turn and just for fun,
Hate everything, the time’s begun.

Now all become pure selfish sods
And think they walk where no one’s  trod.
They now behave like things from hell,
Just...Read More

So Bribe Me
So you want this so bad?
Incorrigible lad
Your excesses will come back to haunt you,
But we may do a deal
Under this seal
Unless common sense doth daunt you.

Should push come to shunt
You’ll bear the brunt
Of an outlying cost that may shock you,

Exam blues

Midnight oil was burnt,
Entire syllabus well learnt,
In exam hall I went blank,
Looked around as a prank,
My friends had to bear the brunt!

I pity it’s becoming a very rare sight
Colourful birds in peaceful flight
Why then Nature must bear the brunt

And flowering ones are harming?

So Man is making the...Read More

Some Day I’m Coming Back

The things that made us who we are
aren’t written in a book
nor do the things they gave us
equal what they took.
Hands that rocked the cradle
soon left welts behind
the harshness of their laughter
made it less than kind.

There’s nobody except a saint
Who never utters a complaint
Though there are those who seem to thrive
On kvetching to keep them alive.

In the Meantime
I've picked the scabs until they bleed,
And then wonder why they never heal
Is it just a compulsive need
For pain to be what I mostly feel?

A Masochist- Antagonist!
Perfect Punch-drunk Pragmatist!
The Hypnotist who slits his wrists-
And I shall suffer in the midst

The Hypocrite
Consistently inconsistent
Responsibly irresponsible
Flies among the birds
Yet the rat is his shape...
... The hypocrite...

The truthful liar
A pious criminal
Belongs to the two ends
Mouth: Two sided
Leaking words...
... The hypocrite...

Healthy but sick
Hungry but full
He is the foolish wise
Himself he deceives
Abeit thinking the world he...Read More

The Other Side
I just stared and picked at this paper thin wall.
The more that I could touch it, the more that I could fall.
What's this place beyond a really small line?
I know I haven't crossed it, but I'm not that far behind.

Humiliation from my superior chair,
Company HR adding to the insult,
Is that the corporate world ??

Keeping my temper all time low and attuned,
Not able to bear the brunt of hostility,
Lacrymals activate in humility, a decade's victory.

This hole in my breast
Hollowed out 
by the pointless drilling
of empty thoughts
that go nowhere
and lead to nothing.
Shapes dance before my eyes
Ghosts from a stolen moment
Wraiths of smoke and cold air
Echoing the cradle, heralding the grave.
It feels like I'm walking over...Read More
