To A Lonely Indian

3 Oct

A lonely Indian waiting for the train,railstation
Many thoughts seem to cross his mind,
Thoughts about his future, about his past and present portray,
Will he or will he not make it to the end

The life I dreamt prior arriving at this desert land, will I tally,
My fortune, will it expand as expected,
The girl I love, will she marry,
Will it or will it not happen as awaited

My parents need to cosy as they have made me,
Need to meet the villagers expectations helm,
The church that made me strong in faith, needs a contribution of me,
Will I or will I not make it for them

Was it the right choice to come to this desert land,
I am honoured for my work and nothing more,
If my country had enough then this journey banned,
Oh but there is no point turning back till I make it occur

As he moves further in his thoughts, the train makes it,
He boards and goes on,
Joining thousands of indians in it,
Will he or will he not make it to the end

All in a Train

6 Sep

All in a train we go, all in a train,
A toddler in his father’s arm,
Babbling sounds no one can perceive,


Pointing at everyone with glee,
Till his father kisses his cheek with joy

Two young couples standing besides,
Delighting in the innocence of the toddler,
Dreaming they too would have one soon,
Desiring for the gift yet to be conceived

Two engaged lovers on the other side,
Looking at each other with piercing looks,
A joy on their face of future yet unseen,
Gazing with love yet to be fulfilled

An old man standing besides,
Staring at the toddler with nostalgia,
Reckoning the days when he too had one,
While focusing on the final glory ahead

A bachelor sitting nearby,
Enjoying the gentle actions of the toddler,
While at the same time visualising about his unseen princess,
Till one day he finds her to be bonded in an eternal covenant till death
