poetry personified

words falling short in expressing her

the keyboard shedding all its keys

the tongue exhausting to its limits

the heart and mind resting in peace

she is a natural poetry personified

with each of the verses so dignified

the spirit and essence down to earth

each of the words showing its worth

decency imbibed deep in character

words flowing with sheer eloquence

a distinct emblem of nascent innocence

a unique symbol of pristine elegance

my real existence

as you move forward in your life

I will be surging along with you

there may be crossroads noticed

I will be swaying along with you

the path to success is not so smooth

I will be heaving along with you

that is not the limit of togetherness

I keep pitching, yawing and rolling

to ensure complete sync with you

and keep the emotions controlling

six degrees of freedom persistence

certainly defines my real existence

let’s be friends

we are so near but yet so far and trapped

the social statutes keep us handicapped

you seem to be pretty scared of the society

and I realise the problem and its gravity

you feel it to be a crime to be committed

reason for your withdrawal as predicted

there are no rules for becoming friend

it is a sacred relationship that has no end

just visualise the stream between the gorge

such a mental delight together we can forge

don’t be scared of friendship being exploited

only the misunderstandings to be avoided

be optimistic as we don’t have anything to lose

only for a friend we have the option to choose

be cheerful and live the life to its optimum

this relationship you will enjoy maximum

the string of belief

though we are miles away from each other

our hearts are too close to even bother

our cultures do not match by any means

but the art of living sparkles all our dreams

we do not even have the same mother tongue

but we converse through our hearts so young

surprisingly our gender is also not the same

but never could extinguish the burning flame

though our religious preferences are also unlike

but the religion of humanity had made us alike

yes, we are different and we are born to deviate

perhaps colour and the creed may also not relate

but this huge pile of differences is just meaningless

as the powerful string of belief is what that binds us
