Belief.

Have you ever wondered,

Why a stone gets more respect than you do?

Why a mere pot marked with kum-kum and ash earns more than you do?

Why people trust an invisible entity more than they trust you?

Why more litres of milk is wasted on a lifeless idol, instead of filling the stomachs of the needy?

Why millions of people die for the sake of a so-called ‘faith’ towards something non-existent?

Well, wonder now, before it’s too late.

Don’t let injustice happen for the sake of belief.

 

Question the realm, open your mind,

Instead of locking up your thoughts in your dungeon.

Misconception.

Feminism, what do you think it is?

It’s not inequality;

It’s not just seeking for attention;

It’s not for benefits;

It’s not chauvinism;

It’s not for the sake of altercation;

It’s not about being selfish;

All these are just misconceptions,

Remonstrances against FEMINISM.

To all the men out there, you don’t get to throw away accusations;

Have you ever been asked to not follow your dreams because of your gender?

Or have you ever been gawked at for dressing the way you like?

Have you ever been asked to cover up your face because it’s a sin?

Or been raped,killed and murdered for no reason?

You’d have to walk a thousand miles in our shoes just to see what it’s like to be women.

Stop being bigoted, be radical;

Feminism is fair-minded, and so are feminists.

Insomnia

Is it a song that keeps ringing in your mind ?

Or is it just a train of thought that winds ?

Like a clock, tick rock, time slowly flies.

You hear the crickets chirp, the dogs bark, as you simply lie

Eyes open wide

Thoughts flying high

‘What if’s, ‘if not’s and whatnot.

You desperately call out to sleep, but it doesn’t come to your aid;

You try counting to hundred, but the numbers fade.

Instead, thoughts so deep fill your brain;

“How was the universe formed?”

And so on. 

You finally nod off, but all of a sudden, a sliver of light

Penetrates the window, now it’s too bright. 

Exasperation fills your heart

As you’re already off to a rocky start.

You finally realize that, though it’s funny,

Not all things can be bought with money.
