Account of Unheard Voices
Tapped I wish I kept those voices
To hear and feel mesmerized and pumped
When unheard them then
Never felt so profound and of depth
Now that I am an adult, all those voices preach me at times of dearth.
Ages passes and still the story looms around
Never does a flying mind be caught with string of words
I believe and now I know it’s not the note for posterity to count.
Momentary indiscretion and unworthy I settled then with them
Harassed, sad and cursed my birth
Now that those voices are left as mere voices in void
Long to hear them in person, like how thirsty would crave for fluid.
Experience taught and caught be right for I heard not those voices right
Filial sounds when there, seldom accounts when not, heavily recounts!
An Ode to April
April is as diverse month
For some it’s a moth that make silk
For some it’s a froth like any other month
For most it’s a loth to despair and displease
Culture fall as it’s a month to speak up
Joy is the tail of the full length snake
Be it jovial or making a foolery light
Marks the beginning of a new dawn
Amidst the scorching heat many rituals are performed.
Flowers with fragrance burst out and bloom
Butterflies and humming birds delightfully zoom.
Glorious flowers are kept and glared
Believed to bring luck, charm and to be flared.
The new beginning is marked with morning sight
Filled with gold, idols, flowers bright.
Mothers usually hold the eyes tight close of her child
Brings near the decorated space to worship in traditional style.
New day new look dress cool stand bare foot take blessings of elders
Along gets much awaited monetary bewilderment.
Are as youngsters we celebrating it right I think with a sigh
Or are we only waiting for the last and desired papers that cost high!
The day is relished with aim to be with the same all year long
The very next day seems nothing but forlorn.
Deepened worries stack is put back
Which is as coated as plaque!
Despair, gloom smack hard
Be brave and bloom is the best hack!
April is a diverse month
Amidst the scorching heat it teaches to be glittery along the runs.
