Shoes

Hey there, look the sun is out and the day is clear
You are all cozy with your coffee cup in hand
So why do you want to join me on my walk?
The road is long and the path has dust
It may Rain and the weather is a mystery
But its ok, you can come
I see you are not wearing any shoes
Here have mine I am used to walk bare feet
Be careful they look fine
But on soles they have a hole or two
So be cautious as you walk
The path is not smooth has its thorns and stones
Oh! Look your feet are bleeding now
The shoes didn’t save you from the stones in the way
I am sorry the shoes were not any help at all
Through summers, winter’s, storms they served me well
So now they are just worn out a little
But I am content with them
Here let me carry you on my back
Allow me to put back my shoes first
Yes they will not save my soles from bleeding too
But at least they will cover my feet.

Love

love

I wondered how beautiful the sunset would look like on the other side
The valley where all human beings are so intrigued to go called love
But someone told me that you don’t need to wonder
Sun never sets where you want to go as it never rises there
There the sun always stays on top glowing and gleaming
Radiating its rays on those who choose to stand under it
But that person also advised me to be ready for all the seasons
To be aware of the spring when all the colors seem so bright
The heart is filled with the highest degrees of contentment
And then there is the summer when the heat mounts up
Times stops and the whole world revolves around those moments of ecstasy
But also beware of the autumn of heart
When the insides feel so hollow that you seem to suffocate
Be extra careful of the winters as they come like an un-invited guest
The soul craves for a little warmth the heart seeks the sun
So before you decide to jump over the other side consider all of this
Or just forget all this and wait for the most beautiful surprises you will ever get
Trust me you’ll have the ride of your life

Because

There is still some good in this world

There is still some good in this world
A hand that feeds the hungry
A shoulder to lean and cry
There is light at the end of the tunnel
And hope in every Goodbye
Flowers bloom after every winter
All nights see the sun
There is good in you and me
For what we are but one
Little things that bring the smiles
Or big ones like Hanukkah or Eid
All wait for Holi and Christmas
They bring true joy indeed
All misery tears and sadness
That hatred twisted and curled
Can never break our spirits because
There is still some good in this world

The path is not smooth has its thrones and stones
Oh! Look your feet are bleeding now
