Can We Conquer Fear ?

Can We Conquer Fear ? short poem

Photo by Su Bee Buzz!

When our mind becomes vulnerable
It marks the incidence of fear
We are petrified of everything
A mishappening seems near
There is a conundrum inside us
Life doesn’t seem clear

Fear engulfs our thought process
It takes away our wisdom
There is a feeling of distress
Uncertainty prevails inside
We lose our serenity in darkness

We have a wrong impression
This fear isn’t legitimate
It’s our own unruly creation
That captures our thought process
Abates all our motivation
We anticipate a mishap
That has a vague inception

Can we conquer fear ?
It’s a legitimate question
Are we captives of fear ?
Depends on our perception
Fear can be countered with happiness
Smile is our only weapon

The Prince, The King And The Master long poem

The shrine of Madonna stood tall, The high king’s rapier fell down, not anymore was he the young prince, for he was devoid of all feelings. The shrine of Madonna stood strong, The high king’s blood washed the ivory pedestal,

Who Was Me?

Who Was Me? short poem

A misbelief breaks into rags. Still I dream of some gods on black pages piecing together the words of light. The rains come in the cage of tears, voicelessly. Striated muscles of splintered faith go to cramps birthing the avatar

Toeless Fear

Toeless Fear short poem

The name calls the name spraying the moon with red colour. It touches a nerve, when there is standoff on the lake. A blueish eye invades an iron space between near solids of docks. The gap was widening and the
