In Perfect Peace

The rain the previous night, The wind that came with it, The soft, fresh air this morning, The rustling leaves, The sunrise, The chirping birds, My early morning meditation, punctuated by some sips of water, My time at the loo, The brushing of my teeth, All these I experience alone, In perfect peace. The status updates can be disturbing, The…

EVENTUDE

At night, I lay in bed And think of all I’ve done; From sunrise to sunset From the break of dawn to its going down, There I peruse and reminisce, And ask myself questions such as – Did I cheat my fellow man? Or rejoice at the pain of another Did I please my God? Or make someone lose faith…

DEAR LEAH,

Today is your day, So I thought of 1000 wishes for you; Guess that’s too much to say, So I’ll just say a few: May God strengthen and keep you, May His face shine upon you And His peace be with you. May all your dreams come true, And your skies remain ever blue. May your strength be renewed And…

Choice

But, what you don’t understand is how he deceives you, Puffing you up like a balloon full of air until you reach your maximum and you…

I ask that you prepare us for each other.

I acknowledge that it is not good that I am alone.

I need a comrade suitable for me.

Friend of a Loner

Dear friend, I read your note, and I feel so glad that you expressed your feelings so clearly. I deemed it fit to respond, even though I doubt that you expected one. Yes, the world can be noisy and busy, yet there`s some calmness in it. There is love in the world; give it, and you`ll definitely receive it. Frown…

LIFE IS MEANT TO BE…

Life is meant to be better And with its pleasures, sweeter; So we toil so hard to end in gain, But sometimes it leads us to pain. Life is meant to be full of cheer – But I looked at a man and saw a tear. Whether it was for joy or pain, I know not But I prayed and…
