life’s biggest fraud

I wish I could effortlessly amble

in the borders of Pakistan and India

I wish I could stay and wander

in the cool borders of China and India

I could just take a stroll

in the lanes of present Afghanistan

I wish I could express myself

in the current Korean governance

Why is this so very difficult

in this beautiful human abode

why is this human freeway

became the most dreadful road

do we want our species extinct

with such most disastrous imprint

or are we mistaking self to God

and committing life’s biggest fraud

a great partnership

it is time to retrospect if you are a real partner

if you don’t fit in there, time to try a bit harder

do you stand by her, when she faces her in laws?

do you look at mirror, while pointing her flaws

do you play with your kids each and everyday?

do you do the kitchen when she has to overstay?

do you help her when she goes through the pain?

do you honour her NO for pleasures you wish to gain

do you too go for fasting when she does it for you

do you respect her emotions, freedom and point of view

if you follow all these you are indeed an ideal mate

this is the way you can make the partnership great!

an odyssey

this is a very small odyssey called life

here one need to strive hard to survive

paths are not always straight and clear

one need a bunch of qualities to steer

the candle of truth shall gleam the fog

honesty shall clear the choking smog

shovel of determination will clear obstacles

the axe of courage shall break the shackles

let’s prepare ourselves to face the challenge

let’s tread slowly and maintain the balance

the length of life remains always undecided

let’s make it meaningful, let’s make it excited

zero responses

can someone also get the toothpaste

else the today’s prompt will go waste

there had been various such instances

where DP had shown zero responses

but today is the most august occasion

so this month start requires ovation

if the writers efforts are not surfacing

may be that is a trick for marketing

so, no matter what lies underneath

take toothbrush and clean your teeth

plea to cockroach

Oh! you brown reddish miniature creature

The Almighty has given you superb feature

and that makes me jealous of you always

as my fraternity showers you with praise

how can you develop in her so much fright

that she experiences just by your sight

you can hold your breath for minutes

how can you make her hold her breath

you can live without your head for days

but I want my head on shoulder always

O the king of pests teach me the magic

how can I stop my life becoming tragic

how can I develop that scare in her

can you do this technology transfer?

my cup of tea

I always crave for you night and day

you are in my mind whenever I pray

my mornings are truly devoted to you

I almost surrendered to you as I grew

sometimes I want you in the night too

you pacify me like the morning dew

your fragrance makes me awfully mad

your absence makes me immensely sad

no one can satisfy me to the level you do

strange but true, I can’t live without you

it is my confession and I solemnly agree

Oh my dear! you are my real cup of tea
