Living On The Edge!


I hang by the cliff
Always on the edge
Clinging by the thread
of my sanity

I try harder and harder
To climb back
And be sane
and be stable

But my weak hands
Do not support me
Attain that sanity
That stability

I see many around
But no one to pull me up
And lead to light
Unload the darkness

I try harder and harder
Every day’s labour this is
All is lost at the dawn
And I “ live on the edge” again

Now You Call This Living? prose poem

Now you call this living
? But what is living without loving
? And what is love but a verb

. And society tells us

Living Together

Living Together short poem

All humans are part of one god. But still they fight among themselves. In the name of religion, Ever at the name of caste, At the name of the country. Why cannot we all live together? If we all live
