1.Clouds And Birds.
Clouds and birds have
A few things in common:
Both sail at a certain height.
They move in clusters, slow or fast,
And in all directions
Overlooking things, dull or bright
But clouds rarely rest
For their mission of life
Is to bring rain to earth’s various parts,
While birds storm trees at sunset each day
And begin each day with their melodious notes
To delight human hearts
2.Let The World…
Let the world prove that there is no God,
Yet let my faith in you never grow weak;
On the other hand, let it grow from strength to strength
And reach in devotion, its peak.
Let the world assert that there is no hell or heaven
But only poverty or luxury of this earth;
Yet let me not engage in unjust actions
Even if life beyond is of little worth.
One can keep a
Dying patient in coma
For a few hours;
One can impound the
Flowing water through a dam
For a few centuries;
One can keep the
Ah! But the fast-changing hues of twilight
Cannot be made to wait
Even for a few seconds!
A mind that wishes suffering to others
Is a mind without love;
A mind that thinks of the welfare of all
Is a Divine gift from above.
A mind that laughs at others’ woes
Has no regard for life and its goal
Until it has suffered in the crucible of life itself
And become fit to play the Divine role!
Pen pictures a scene
Which others have not seen;
Pen depicts a life
Which is full of strife.
Pen sketches the suffering
Of blind and hard of hearing
And pen describes the joy
Of a boy with many a toy.
6.You gave me …
You gave me a life
And I only tried
To find its meaning;
You gave me time
And I only attempted
To make it useful;
You gave me joy
And I only learnt
To be grateful to You;
And You gave me sorrow
And I learnt my first lessons
