Ride Not Desires

Ride Not Desires short poem

Photo by Sergio Fabara

None knows the borders of the sky
so also there is no limit for persons greed

So why do you want to dream to fulfil your
never ending desires
Go slow in per suit of your desires

Why you want to ride horse which promise to take you to moon in day light ?
why are you endlessly roaming in oasis with the hope of extracting water ?

You better know none can achieve things by passing HIS rules
Life cant be Run as we would like it to

any regrets , any happiness
any thing that may happen
is solely HIS responsibility

Birth and Death are two extremes in life
These are two unseen faces in life

It is a mirage to think only happiness exists
Both Thorn and Rose are sure to exist in ones life’s journey

Why indulge in greediness,
Why you feel disappointed

What ever comes in life
think it is HIS wish.and
move ahead in your life

Your voice is the perfect song to listen to on a road trip. To view all the things that remind me of you. Miles away from the stress of work. Your voice, the open road. Someone I can love, no

The tears were walking along with laughter. My face was roasted. The fish-men were moving the political wheels. As the chaos was widening, the humming birds started to depart. And the seeds were catching fire from anonymous snipers. The candle
