Dream Big

Let the dreams shoot up high and tall
As the lofty and majestic Mount Everest
That with certain pride hovers mightily
And with much confidence over the entire world
As for doubts, they murder the precious dreams

The Brighter Side of Things

When you look on the brighter side of things
The night ceases harboring thieves and thugs
It becomes lit up by multitudes of twinkling stars
In their full glory across the dazzlingly vast skies
Such a sight that awe and admiration inspires

The Double Edged Future

The optimist stretches his eyes and sees the invisible future
And says, "It is bright, promising and so beautiful a future!"
His heart is eagerly looking forward to its approach
That it may speedily reach the present moment and find him
The future, in its treasure box, holds delicious opportunities

The Talent in You

You got this talent, this art, this skill    
That naturally comes to your constitution
It lies in your deep trenches sleeping
On the substitute bench it is forever confined
Never to be played in the real world
Never to grace the pitch of serious business
It lies in the cold, destitute and unused
As useful as it is, yet soundly overlooked

Passion

Passion breathes life, such a stubborn life
That refuses to die, but makes death himself flee
It's so hot it burns through the impediments
Opening up the path of ultimate achievement
Without passion is without fruitful life

The Unity of Little Things

There is a drop of water so little so insignificant
Nobody ever notices its much short-lived presence
But when a little drop and still more little drops
Come together as one, there emerges a mass of water
And the very massive ocean that no one can ignore
Is made up of those multitudes of united little drops

The Classroom of Experience

Your eyes, keep them as ready and sharp as can be
Every minute of the time
Prepared to observe the Teacher's moves
And discover the all important hidden secrets
That hold keys to the doors abounding opportunities
In this classroom of experience
Where learning is as borderless as the infinite horizon

The Irony of Life

Life ruthlessly strikes me down
With her uncompromising heavy blows
Drawing pained tears with furious whips
Willing me to stand up stronger
Back on my feet taller than ever
Feeling as victorious as blissful 
And thanking life with joyful tears

Corruption Must Fall

Like soil erosion that regrettably washes away
The priceless nutrients down the wasteful slopes
And robs the land its precious gift of fertility
The unfortunate crops have to endure malnutrition
Their growth is as counterfeit as it is stunted
And the grower's reward is a very paltry harvest
Such is corruption when allowed to reign supreme
And wreck havoc on the noble progressive policy
Pushing competent skills and priceless resources
Down the drain, and rendering development
A futile effort that only exists on busy tongues

A Mountain Divided

When it was one united massive mountain
It was mighty, strong and most formidable

When unity was guarded most jealously
There was peace, power and true prosperity

A New Day

Dawn has come with a brand new day
The newest day just broke out that is today
A day fresh from the box in a way
With such vigor the horizon is split asunder
And here, here comes the happy sun, oh dear
Eager to get started blessing the world with light
And to everyone an equal measure of time

The Deception of Speeding

With the runaway zeal to beat time lies the goal periled
This flying time is invisible to blows, making beating it an exercise in futility
While you are rushing in the hope of winning against time
Time flies at once on its swift wings to ambush you at the finish line
By speeding after impossible time the true goal lies martyred

Imagination

Here stands a grand and mighty tree, straight and tall and free
As tall as to reach the roof of the sky, dwarfing me like a fly 
Such a true colossus, as wide and round as a giant mound
Its elegant foliage is as richly green with life as ever been
Its powerful roots are on hand, colonizing the depths of the land

Anticipation and Reality

Seeing that I trained so hard for the rugged mountain
Been up and down the stony rough slops
And readily look forward to wrestling with a mountain
Reality brings not a mountain when the real moment comes
She brings me a rough river to cross instead

Procrastination

Like a politician vying for a seat too hot to miss
Procrastination stands on hill tops with malice
Starts mudslinging today and elevating tomorrow
Says procrastination, cunningly yet too narrow:
Today has issues, in fact today always falls short

Campaign

Is the sky blue?
Depends on what our leading voters are saying
Are they saying the sky is blue and beautiful?
Then the sky must be all blue and wonderful
We promise to maintain that as solidly as a mountain
And we are going to even improve it with resolve

The Power Problem

As it increases unchecked, power becomes monstrous
Like a balloon being carelessly and dangerously inflated
Every praise, every worshiping that is accorded to it
Is like air being brown over and over into the balloon
The confidence overgrows to become an inflated ego

The Spectators

The all important ball is right next to his shiny boots
Not a single tyrannous marker is standing in his way
His way is as clear as purified water to the naked eyes
No mountains, no gullies, as any true plain could be 
Even the goal posts are surely at his mercy alone

My Cake My Cake

Oh my cake, nibbled, and left in such dereliction?
Standing in ruins, a derelict castle in desolation
Carelessly scratched, defaced and left depleted
With barbarity vandalized, hacked and ransacked
The glory is all gone and now left impoverished 
In desperate tatters like a soul that is malnourished

Persistence

The beginning, the very beginning, is like a dark crossroad
It's in the middle of a pitch dark night in an alien territory
You are looking for the only true path to golden treasures
But into the night all the paths vanish playing hide and sick
They meander into darkness hurrying into invisible realms

Time Will Catch Up With You Too

In the days when I was young and green in years
My knees melted before the awesome elderly
For their presence radiated awe an honor
As strong as the rays of the bright summer sun
My whole body surely trembled before them

The Journey of Life

The big enthralling mountains of hot desires craw by
Imbued with splendorous flowers of dearest moments
The massive plains of longings marked with grandeur
Move ever so slowly as the trip of life drives forward
And those bizarre heartbreaking deformities
That mark the terrains of life are in no hurry either

Worried Jonny

Worried Little Jonny also called Danny
When will you cease being grumpy?
When will you choose to be happy?
When will you discard the dark strife,
And finally enjoy your tender life?
When I am a boy much bigger and older
When I am a boy all grown up and broader
Then I will be happy, truly happy
