Off the wall

Down Stratford Street,
(they say) "curl up and die"..
A new day will dawn,
A better tomorrow will come!
Sleeping on your back,
What do you believe in?
Use your heart,
Make a wish, thrice!
Face to face,
walking with thee...
He was no Saint,
He's just a spray away!

For L****

No sides to take,
I’m just a passer-by.
No emotions to fake,
I’m just a ‘natural’.

Who am I to decide what’s just and what’s not?

With a brave face,
I see myself through.

I’m burning up inside.
But, what about you who’s charred?


Hey Mirror!
What is this I see?
A form so familiar,
I reckon I’m right!

Along the way,
Distinctions have been dissolved.

Just another face…

A boon or a bane?
Can’t say for sure.

Them Chains

Roots- I’m proud to be tied to.
I say “Thank you!”

Wings – my chance to fly,
You gave me those too.

My wings take flight…
Only to be yanked back to the ground by chains.

Can you picture my plight?

Bound by ‘em chains,
No matter what I do,
I will never break free!


The years I lost, flash back in a few seconds.

They re-appear under brilliant strobe lights.

Dreams and hopes which died, come alive in this staged setting.

I just am on the wrong side of the stage.

With no way to bring back the years I lost, I put on a reluctant smile.

The Man with the shell

Greying hair,
Aching bones,
I sit here in despair,
Speaking to you in hushed tones.

Why this misery?
Oh, what have I done wrong?
Hurts more than slavery,
Will I ever be strong?

DON'T Stare,
They say "All's well",
What do 'they' care,
'bout 'The Man with the Shell'?
