Not Far Away From Today

Not Far Away From Today short poem

Not far away from today,

Awaits a distant future…

But at what price we move,

Hurting mother nature….!

Waging wars for nothing,

Slaughtering innocent souls…

Just to entertain,

Our mindless goals…!!

Shame on you – oh humanity,

For being so selfish…

Destroying almost everything,

Just for your own wish…!!!

Being wise may be a good thing,

But practicality is always lacking…

Everyone speaks of changing,

But action should be seen…!!

If this lasts any long,

What price do we pay…

We all will have to cry,

Not far away from today…!

Step Away

Step Away short poem

Modernity. Technology. Racing head long helter-skelter into the future. Like a runaway train speeding out of control. Historic societal norms breaking apart. What to think, what to believe losing resonance. Explosion of information barraging our senses. Overload. Current institutions clueless

Wearing Away

Wearing Away short poem

I have again become empty by undoing a disturbing thought. Unsexing the sputtering stillness of a Robin. Tender bruises on the pink heart. A bird was flying away. Little tears come down from the swollen river in spate. Pain lingers
