What is Life?


What is life,
If not sun rise and sunset,
What is life,
If not good times and sad times,
What is life,
If not a slideshow of summer and winter,
A slideshow of autumn and spring,
What is life?

What is life,
If not a beautiful dandelion,
That blooms, then in the wind dances,
And slowly…fades,
Gone, like breath vapour in the mist,
What is life,
If not ribbons in the wind,
Seen only for a minute or two,
Then in the mountains, it’s choked,

What is life,
If not positivity in the face of all these negativity,
What is life,
If not hope in the midst of despair,
What is life,
If not love, in the mud of hate,
What is life,
If not a smile in the valley of pain,
What is life,
If not sunshine rays through the raindrops,
What is life,
If not a Rainbow…


Even in These Ruins

in ruins

It started with a name, Human,

Soon, It became heavenly, Angel,

‘I wanna be in your arms forever’, was a song, theirs

The world, their oyster, Beautiful,

And they sure painted it, a rainbow.


In the sun they sung, smiled and the rays of joy, shone,

In the rain they cried, kissed and their hearts, reigned,

Whatever the season, in love they danced,

Found bliss in the warmth of a tango embrace,

Eyes…closed, they missed to spot, the looming mist.


An end of an Era it became, and as the cruel hands of time,

Silently and forever, buries the world they shared,

In the midst of the tears, are memories and hopes, and dreams,

A belief, that even in those ruins, a city lies,

And in the deepest of darkness, like a lily of the valley,

It will once again bloom,

Like a phoenix from the ashes…Rise
