Feel it all!

a poem by Kumar

Contrast is the word,
Opposite is what it means,
Parallel you can see them,
You see it all,

Feeling the power of loneliness
Enjoying the company of solitude,
You would like it still,
You will like it all,

With no one to speak,
Yet you have a talk,
Having a response from nowhere,
Yet, you talk it all,

Seeing thru’ you closed eyes,
In the middle of mid-night darkness,
All you see is beauty, overall,
You see it all..

Talking to no one,
Seeing thru’ closed eyes,
You do hear the silent talks,
As it happens, you hear it all,

Joy and sorrow, contrast are they,
Sorrow, as you’re alone,
Joy, as you know one,
You experience it all,

Right or wrong, you never know,
Right, as it is from your loved one,
Wrong, if it is against,
Sorry, you cannot judge it all,

Expecting your better half,
A door bell or a telephone ring,
As incoming mail or a vehicle stop,
You wait and wait, not for all…

You hate the beauty of rose,
As you know the most beautiful of all
But to see it on her,
You will love it all…

You would cry for joy,
If not laugh at them,
You lighten at sorrow,
You would do it all…

A pie for others,
A pendant for her,
Both seems equal,
Unequal, accept it, will you! Not at all…

All these just for one,
One to live with you thru’
Thru’ as endless journey,
You feel it all
“If you fall in love.”

Places Been – The Unsolved Mystery

a poem by Kumar

Birth, as it is known,
Drives life into earth,
Starting to breath,
Its the first place we be, the mother’s womb,

After ten months stay,
Wishing to see the ray,
No longer willing to stay,
we cry out way out to see the day,

Willing to be a mover,
Trying to be a crawler,
Ending up being a shaker,
We lie next to our first know, mother,

Persistence, for sure, we have to walk,
Resistance, mother earth shows to fall, to hold you…
Abstinence, we show to most, un-know dislikes…
The best place we would ever stay, doing all these, The Home…

Starting to count our steps,
Slow but a steady progress,
The first few rise and falls,
As we scale thru’ out the house,

As time speeds, we walk thru’ it,
Willing to go faster,
We learn to be on wheels,
Riding across our streets,

Not willing to leave home,
We start our education,
Not an entertainment at that age,
We start, so called learning, in school,

Driving thru’ the lanes,
With the desire to move faster,
Moving on to heavier wheels,
Exploration extends thru’ to city, and above…

As days pass by,
Fighting for our grades,
Of course, fight for hearts,
Spending our teens at high school,

Desire for exploration,
Trying to learn the unknown,
Staring an endless search,
crossing the limits of age, we learn…

Fights do continue,
But time has changed,
Its the fight for survival,
Fittest survive at our work place,

Meeting the better half of life,
Exchanging hearts,
Fruitful times we spend,
Its union at a marriage hall,

Long stored energy,
Never met experiences,
Never felt, hard, joy,
Its all on a soft bed,

Eager to see your alter ego,
Your younger one,
coming thru’ with pain and cry, but its all happy,
Its the hospital you’ll never forget,

After all pain and pleasure,
After all joy and sorrow,
After all lights and nights,
Its time to leave,

Its sorrow to all…
sorrow to you… may be not…
Leaving the human body reaching divinity,
its a six feet, may be a little more, land that’s yours…

Its mystery of life and places,
Of all the places we have been,
We remember or know all except,
The place we came from and the place we are going to…
“Its an unsolved mystery of Life and Places”…

Love or Friendship

a poem by Kumar

Two words out of which one can create havoc,
and the other can help you destroy it,
you never know to differentiate which one is right!!??
Love or Friendship!!!

Both are equally tantalising to me,
But the bigger makes me bow,
Which the smaller fails to do!!!
It’s friends that are important to me!!

Love, a nice word to hear,
A harder word to bear,
Friendship, a longer word,
To me, an acute word,

Love gives you a pain,
Though enjoyable mostly ends in vain,
Friendship gives you joy,
Makes you feel forever like a boy!!!

Tough to find,
Hard to succeed,
Best to stay,
And that’s Love,

Easy to find,
Tough to impress,
Hard to stay,
And that’s Friendship

Mom! I love you!

a poem by Kumar

This Poem has been written to show how much I miss my mom… every day…
I am currently away from home for my studies and I am staying in my aunt’s house.

Lying in the Bed,
I wait, till you finish our bread
to wake me up
to start my day high.

Helping me get ready
ready for my day
day as daunting as my earlier
earlier and now, I have you with me.

After the day, I await my home coming
Coming home, has always been a joy
joy for both you and me,
me,.. I love you!!!

The alarm rings
rings to wake me up…
up to face another day
a day without you…
Mom.. I miss you so much!!
