It was after much despair
That I came to realize
How better life is
With out the word desire

Desire which made me whine
For want of things far beyond
There was no need to seek them
When all I wanted was happiness
That was just a few steps away!

The endless search

As she searched for the answers she realized
That she has been moving in circles all the while

There would be no end to the search
No answers to the myriad questions

That was the truth and as she turned back
Life welcomed her back with open arms

And she decided to live, to live every moment!!

No Words

There are no words that the heart wants to speak
No song that it wants to sing

It has blinded itself to the world around
Looking only at life within

There are no sorrows or any desires
No pain or any joy

Like how a child’s chord with his mother is cut
Its chord with the world has been severed

Without any bonding it carries on steadily
Not letting the harsh realities cause a stir within!

Chennai Rain

Rain in Chennai is very rare
As though the gods never cared

And when it finally lashed
Quite a lot it washed

The soot, the grime and the cloggy drains
Perhaps even many hearts

While the hearts started singing
The city was brimming

Water once so scarce
Began to give a scare

Did I hear him pray?
For the rains to go away!

It’s not hard to tell
Why the rains don’t befall

We aren’t ready for the downpour
And when we really are hope it creates wonder

Making the city greener, better, richer and happier!
