Vainglorious Us

Words rebellious,
Imprisoned,
Pages never turned,
Lost forever in
Fleeting screens
Ever changing.

Vainglorious us,
Soliciting likes.
Dreams of
Changing the world
Captive.

Victims we all.
Some suffer
Incredible pains,
Sacrificed
On altars of power.
Others sulk, nursing
Injured pride.
Hearts pain
Licking cowardice.

My Little Angel Got Her Wings Today

Dropped off my youngest one in college today and drove back to an empty house.
Eons ago,  no
Barely seems to be
A fleeting moment
In time, when
One evening not so long ago
Sweetest little angel
Visited my home
Her wings clipped
But her beautiful smile
Would make me fly
Tried my best
To nurture
A journey
Not always easy
Ups and downs
Smiles and heartbreaks
But never a
Dull moment
She got her wings
Today
Ready to fly
Wish her to
Fly so high
Free
With eyes focussed
On her goals
Even the mighty eagle
Needs a branch from time to time
To come down and rest
When my sweet little angel
Tired and wants to rest
These old shoulders
Will be waiting
These old hands
Still strong to embrace
To give her a
Well deserved rest and a pat on the back

Life’s Trivial Questions

Life is to live or to live is life. Does it matter?

Life’s Trivial Questions 

Few thoughts:

Question is not “To be or not to be”

Life is to live or

To live is life,

I live to eat or

Eat to live,

Questions aplenty,

Answers do not matter.

Can’t go back,

Time travel is a myth.

Only option is to move forward,

Till it’s time to part.

Searching for those fleeting moments,

When sunshine brought some peace.

Is it too much to ask,

For a little of those moments,

Or do I just eat to live?
