Strike Out.

Strike Out. long poem

Photo by williamcho

After so much struggle 
Throughout the year ,
After achieving success 
That you had feared,
It’s time to cherish. 

To be thankful for the good 
Experiences you had,
To be grateful for the worst experiences from which you learned ,
There is nothing to feel sorry for, 
No shame or embarrassment 
Instead be thankful for all 
The values you earned. 

Remember the people who made you smile ,
Forgive the ones who forgot you for a while ,
Be with them whom you adore ,
Spend time with the ones who are close to your heart’s core. 

This year make more people laugh,
Take out some more time to absorb the beauty of nature, 
To see beyond what is already carved,
Make some new friends, 
Go on road trips , admire the view,
Because in the end, whichever way you choose, 
are  the trends. 

Amidst the noise, 
Pledge to be calm
Amidst the flow,
Don’t lose your path
Go beyond the boundaries, 
Think out of the box
Because it’s now or never. 
Again a year is gone, 
Again the months passed, 
And you haven’t gone a step forward?
This feeling shouldn’t last.

Freaking Out

Freaking Out short poem

Before the spill there was soaring. And then anti-g. I readied myself for the ultimate fall. This was the poetry of submission sharing the pain of disillusionment. Who was pretending of liberation in a see-through heart? This was the time

Sold Out

Sold Out short poem

Since I saw you, I’ve had this hope live in me. That everything that isn’t needed be gone. The details of sales papers, shopping carts. The ease of temptation. Standing still. To fill my cart full of things I don’t

Work-out Or Run-out

Work out Or Run out short poem

No snacking on French Fries , but work for healthy weight and size. Get cracking on your workout , and stretch before you run out . A jog might sound like suicide when you’re as big as me. Take heart!


Washed out short poem

Slashing the surged monarchy of celibates stoking the fire of wounds, the turret locks on to a target taking off the gloves. The mountain was rising. A sheet of the floating ice disturbs the ecology of heart. I place my

Something Knocks Out

Something Knocks Out short poem

Ceramic memories and terracotta pain; the injured crypt ultimately got opened. At urn burial, the name was absent. A pristine ritual for a nameless martyr. The sword within him was not used and pubescent bomb went unexploded. You leave a
