Paradox Of Comparisons

Paradox Of Comparisons short poem

People who live all their lives observing others often amuse me.. Here is a poem to such…

A happy neighbor causes such to go green,

A sad neighbor may easily be demeaned…

A rich neighbor may be the one in vain,

A poor neighbor may be such an easy game…

These paths are seldom a bore, so much to think.

A moment lightened up now, to a smirk or wink…

So much frolic to be had, in theorizing malarkey

Wizards of the day, solving mazes on sorority.

Lighten us up life, and lighten up our souls…

For lets all get real and avoid thoughts foul!

Let us all build with humility our own quality…

And be generous in bearings with no malignity.

And be generous in bearings with no malignity.

A few words strung together on inspiration, or a few thoughts penned down for clarity. A hobby that has consistently matched to represent the inspirations in me. Most often, they are from incidents and trends happening around the world, books or articles that I may parse through, or some noble cause that had greatly impressed me. I have been writing poems, and short stories, since I had been 6 years. Music and poetry walk hand in hand; good music, good poetry shall always stay my favorite pastime.

I’ve been self reflecting, But my mirror is broken. I’m a paradox. The only thing I know about my self Is that I know nothing about myself at all. Or do I? Through my broken mirror, am I lying? Or

Life, at times, is full of irony, People talk roses but their deeds reap weeds.. Oh yeah! On one hand they pretend to be mascot of peace, On the other hand they don’t hesitate to suffocate anyone else’s speech. On

A Mystic Paradox

A Mystic Paradox short poem

Not superficial, real inside, something was ruined. Tonight I will walk out in dark beyond me. Creased, under tyranny of love, wanted to unwrite the script in the stampede of sins. Impeachment throws up the shock syndrome. No wish to
