Listening to the voices speak for their political drums, seeing the people march to the political beat.

They say we think for ourselves. I laugh at their words. You are sheep,waiting for the reasons, a reason to riot. A reason to hate. You march to nothing but the deliverance of emptiness that bullies others to your own pace!

You believe you are right. If it offends you, rip it down, burn the books, destroy history. Go to the safe places, hide flee.

We have turned into a nation where we preach being wrong does not matter, get a trophy just for participation.

If our old men and women preach it from the tops of congress, it is progress? No it is hot air with a lot of stress!

i unlock the moonlight
and dip my fingers
in the divine connection
i weave threads of its shimmer
into a ravel of hibiscus,
translating beauty
into a new language
that only exists
in these petals of protection
guarded by ocean waves
the seagulls sing their approval,
already versed in the intricacies
of each new letter
i hope you learn its every curve
and paint the world
in powerful poetry

Haar uss veer ko salam hai...
Jisne apni jaan ke kadar na krte hue....
Humare desh ke raksha ki...
Haar uss sipahi ko sir jhuka kr naman krte hai....
Jisne apni parivar ki kadar na krte hue...
Humare desh ko apne jaan se zyda pyaar kiya...
Haar uss kurbani ko hum yaad rakhegey..
Bhaliye woh jaliyan wala bhagh ho, ya fir angrezo ke samne na jhukhna...
Hum sabne ek jut hokar phle bhi buraai ko achaai par jeet laye the...
Aur aghe bhi hum ek jutt hokar kbhi bhi ek dusre ka sath nahi chodege...
Aur humesha aise he ek sache desh bhakt ki tarah apne desh ki raksha kregey...
Bhaliye woh border par khada jawan ho ya fir majboor apni din bhar ki roz ki kamaye ke liye ladhta hai....

But....,
Politics, hatred and religion has divided us all.....,

73 years of joy, lurked by the horrors of past,
Sacrifices of men and women alike, made worthy at last.

Children of today cry for virtual freedom,
Complain about how modern world can’t overcome,
Unknown of the pains of our forefather for freedom to live,
A concept so far off, yet they were determined to thrive.

Gokhale to Gandhi, ashfaqullah to Azad,
The kings and queens of counties far and wide,
Divided by culture, Caste and language,
United by one stride.

Reformers to thinkers, idealist to extremist,
Different ways to protest and fight,
Yet driven by one goal, to seek what is their birth right.

Some rose to prominence, some unknown souls,
Some echoing screams in massacre,
Some silen...

Life laid down by millions
In honour and pride of our nation
Free from colonism
Paving the way to the
Largest democracy
In the world
I am proud to be
An Indian
Cherishing this day !!

Bringing smiles
On faces of the oppressed
Reimaging from
The way we were looted
We now stand tall
And matter to the world
At large
Yes this is our
Independence Day

Lets celebrate
With glory And pride
Feeling blessed
And gifted

Happy Independence Day to all

There are so many
reasons to be alive
but the dark attraction
of death tosses its
shadow over the
brilliance that you were so
much looking forward to,
embracing all your
natural powers,
such a magnificent
energy that's always
been, yet some people
like you who refuse
its aid, a choice based on
pride, or any of the
seven deadly sins...
but there's hope for you
Let your body and mind
start the healing process
Rid yourself of want
Steer clear of desire
For with what life has to
offer, there is no need
This is a blessing

I live in the notion
Of fear
With a feeling
surrounded by demons

Selfishness has taken away their soul
Making them think
It's only money
That can afford

The meaning of humanity
Seems to be in despair
Making me think
Is this the world
We dreamt of ??

Epilogue  
I refute the language
of shadows
of light and dark
good and evil

What was born as a fear
of dark
absence
the dim places where the
wild things devour
has twisted under streetlights
into a fear of ourselves
a dichotomy of racist
narrative
where light and dark are 
insidious metaphors for 
people
so buried in subconscious culture
we cannot disentangle them
from ourselves
These children claim
woke
but are we not
still living in
a dream within a dream?
and how many awakenings must there be
before we are 
still
truly

Free

Si pues nací aquí en Estados Unidos pero me considero un ciudadano dé segunda clase porque siempre me van a ver el color de mi piel primero y no me avergüenzo del color de mi piel (pues es un resultado de un tanning salon y fue gratis (lol)) y yo se que todo este racismo que se a desarrollado en los últimos años se va a poner peor, y no debería hacer así, pues un día todos los que han dejado a Dios morar en su corazón vamos a vivir con El juntos y él color de la piel no va a importar

Adventure doesn't mean
Hanging on a rope
Half way up a mountain
Or surfing the waves
On the Northshore
Adventure is an attitude
We need to apply
To our everyday existence

*Hope Blooms Here*

The love of a child
Blooms like hope
And flowers
In our existence
Creating a fate
That becomes our home.

As with any home
The pitter patter of children
Alters fate
Because their hopes
Bring into existence
Dreams that flower.

That flowering
Brightens each home
While we exist
Almost childlike
Hoping upon hope
That our lives are fated.

Some dreams become faded
Like dried flowers
But we don't lose hope
Or leave home
To become lost children
Or cease to exist.

Within our existence
Where dreams can fade
Is the childhood
That like a field of flowers
Can outgrow its home
And lose hope.

But without hope
There's no meaning to existence
In o...

🔸️Reunion🔸️
Finally all that heat has left my side
I only kept you around out of spite
And out of sight because deep down inside
I knew it was not right, too many nights
living a life yet I felt like I'd died
But now that liquid languish has all dried
I'm starting to once again feel alive

Ages of misoperation
Classified into castes
We have witnessed
Shame to mankind

We fought together
For the common freedom
From brutality

disparate ideology
Divided us into two

Now we are
So called
Neighbours
Into brawl
Over piece of land

I wish freedom again
Same bonding
With which we fought
Standing tall and together
For peace to prevail
But my hope is diminishing
With every passing day

Isn't it after the defeat, we find the resolve to fight back?

Isn't it only after we are lost, the path is sought?

Isn't it after being held hostage by despair, hope keeps us alive?

Isn't it after the darkest hour of night, dawn appears?

Hoy siento la enorme necesidad de alejarme emocionalmente de todo y de todos...
Elegir un camino sin rumbo y recorrerlo sin detenerme...
Ir a lo desconocido y respirar...
Hoy solo quiero libertad...
