The Hope Philosophy

Its been 3 past eleven she hasn’t still arrived,
been waiting for her by this rocky seaside..

O! what dreams we dreamt holding hands in the grand hall of our school,
we loved, like no other love, the world had seen, before us,
From sunrise to sunset I pledged my heart to her..

Alas! I was only a blacksmith to her dads empire..
“what a disgrace that my beautiful daughter even looks at thee! Love is for children!”
with that he drove away me..

My daughter shall marry a prince, I choose
and live happily like a princess under my hood!

Her prince turned out to be a drunken monster..who blew away her fathers empire!
whilst I..swordsmith of the south grew, in power and became richer with the might of the king in the north!

But whats the use of all the glory, if u don’t have your love to share it with..
so buoyed by my new found social status, I went back to save her
from the tyrant who ruled her

She was same; my sweet love, cried and kissed,the moment she saw me..
I knew then what I had to do,hatched a plan to run away, another country far from all her misery..
she hesitated, but then agreed to meet me by the docks.

But It’s been 10 past 11 she hasn’t still arrived;
maybe maybe it was her child whom she couldn’t leave behind..

Alas! some dreams just float  away and crush all your hope.
you stand on the rocks waiting for life to show u a ray of light
Nay! its a cruel joke,
that the man upstairs has played on thee..

devastated he fell into the sea.

If only the blacksmith had waited,a moment longer,he could have kissed his bride,with a son on her side..

It’s true! some dreams do wash away with the rising tide of the sea…(27/3/2015)

Ozymandias

Horace Smith’s Ozymandias

In Egypt’s sandy
silence, all alone,
Stands a gigantic Leg,
which far off throws
The only shadow that
the Desert knows:—
“I am great
OZYMANDIAS,” saith
the stone,
“The King of Kings;
this mighty City
shows
“The wonders of my
hand.”— The City’s
gone,—
Nought but the Leg
remaining to disclose
The site of this
forgotten Babylon.

We wonder,—and
some Hunter may
express
Wonder like ours,
when thro’ the
wilderness
Where London stood,
holding the Wolf in
chace,
He meets some
fragment huge, and
stops to guess
What powerful but
unrecorded race
Once dwelt in that
annihilated place..

Sailing Dreams

This monotony of life has got to me;
standing here like an old navy..
I am searching for that precious land alluding me…

DREAMs washed away in this storming ocean,
all that i can do is wait here and watch-
as birds fly,
up in the sleeping sky..

The Celestial wheel is guiding my ship,
across an unknown path-to an unknown world;

a world where dreams have wings&
are open to fly…
where peoples heart aint bound by shackles of lie;
and such is a place where a sailor loves to-
live & die…(20/1/2010)

God-Yes ; Religion-No

       This being my first blog, forgive me for the noob style writing. With this post, I wish to find people who will have a logical reason behind supporting me or having a different opinion…
         
I believe in God..not as a being but as a force that’s present across the universe in everything. But that doesn’t mean I believe in religion.I look at religion as a man made idea to make oneself feel, not as insignificant as he is, in the scheme of things.
Religious scriptures I believe are just rules and regulations written by learned men who have sold the idea of humanity in the name of god…In a way such ‘messengers of God’ have helped man to evolve from a barbaric animal to a social being!
But times have changed and so have we..all the scriptures had rules written which have gone on to define “the time” they were made! there has to be a change made in these scriptures with time..you can’t be living in 21st century and follow rules made in the year 1AD! that’s not called moving foward..

I call for respectfully retiring all religious scriptures and caste, and to replace them with one government system! But that is like asking people to stop believing in God..which is impossible!
The day we learn to separate God from our own idea of religion and accept Him as one almighty force; will be the day we will truly progress!
