A Shortcut to Heaven

My response to those seeking life’s purpose, but unable to find it. My answer to what I think is the true purpose of life.

Hell’s gate opened up
Swallowing me in whole
Crazy as it may seem
’twas not too bad at all.

I followed the path hazy
Leading to nowhere sure.
The way was not that scenic
At least I wasn’t there alone.

A Log on Fire

This life of ours is like a log of wood burning in the star that is the true spirit of everyone

I stood by the ancient fire
One that the souls endure
Neither quelled, nor quenched
With a pang, my heart wrenched.

Started with a benign fondle
Sparked by a Love so pure
Oh ye mother, who stayed strong
How could your ember go so wrong?

A Touch of God

Isn’t it fitting that it takes a heart to balance the rhythm of life and love to make some sense of our existence? Here are my thoughts which try to join the, rather, vague dots connecting love, life and that divine touch.

Here’s something that’s never going to make practical sense. The chink in our “survival armour”. The impractical solution that just exacerbated our every day problems. Thanks God!

We have a very strange history here on earth. For anything that we make, we seek ways to destroy. For all the heart breaks we suffer, we still long to love and do good. I was thinking what god would be thinking, looking at us. My thoughts here.

I wonder what god will have to say
While looking back at us
Will there be pride and joy?
Or anguish and disdain?

Road to Freedom

That day when we rid ourselves of corruption and greed; that moment when we fight, not among each other but FOR; that fleeting passage of time when we realize WE matter, then we can call ourselves FREE. Till then let us tread the hard path!

Long ago, when the world was chaotic, at a time, when no one knew the meaning of peace, when everything was gloomy, God decided to create a fine feathery creature; perhaps the last ray of light to rid the world of it’s dark times!

Oktoberfest 2008

I think the name spells Beerto millions of people around the world, but to a traditional Bavarian it is more of a way of having good fun (of course coupled with beer)!

The Eternal Quest

A poem written for a picture post in a public forum. I could connect with the pic in the form of a struggle a human undergoes at some point in life during the eternal quest for peace.

And here I lie
Trapped in ethereal waters
Of joy and sorrow,
Of ecstasy and pain,
Of life and death!

Life Beckons

An attempt to foresee the circle of afterlife as (if) told by someone experiencing it!

The Sun sets in the West – that’s what we’ve been told; or made to believe rather. Well, it’s certainly not the case here. I know it may sound stupid. But this place, wherever it is, never seems to go dark, something that I can only feel, for I seem to have lost the power of my sight; strange though it may seem, I can feel the warmth of the light. Anyway, I’ve always believed it’s all just relative – this light & dark business. You might conclude that I am lying; that would be a hasty decision. You haven’t seen, ahem, gone through what I’ve experienced here!
