Poem - #14 | They | You | We | Us

A large crowd of people moving here and there in hurry symbolizing the confusion in life.

Mirror, Mirror tell me why,
I feel this pain in every cry.
Though struck are they but hurt am I,
Sorrows be theirs but tears be mine ?

If we are all apart
Then why this pain,
A sting in my heart,
A throb in my vein ?

If we are not one, then tell me why,
Is their smile no different than mine ?
Why his tears be the same as hers,
While their fears still raise their furs ?

Then tell me, tell me, please tell me why,
Do we all seek to touch the sky ?
Though darkness is all thats ahead we know,
We still wanna give it a go.

Why we shudder in the silent cold,
Feel warm in a friendly hold ?
Kill for a little gold,
Forgetting everything we are told.

Oh Mirror, Mirror do unfold,
This blinding delusion of the many old,
For before I leave will be bold
For we are people, not toys to be sold.


A man kissing a girl in the forehead.

Love was when I met you ,
And kissed you under the darkening skies.

Love was when I held you,
Love was the warmth in your eyes.

Love was when you told me
That love never lies

Love was when I left you,
Love was tears in our goodbyes.

Two hands joined to make the symbol of love.

A thousand thorns I'll pass by,
To get to the rose you are.
A zillion dews I,ll grab upon,
To fill up the sea you are.

If you are the Moon, I'll be you night,
If you are the Sun, I'll be your light.

In your eyes I see this abyss of mystery,
Unaware of your past and history.
You came in my life as a ray of light,
In a void of darkness with a path to guide.

I've searched for you in valleys deep,
And up upon the mountains steep,
But little I knew you'll be so near,
So leaving behind all my fear,
I say out loud for you to hear,
That I have fallen in love with you dear.

A picture showing the Milky Way galaxy.

Soaring heavens up above,
Devils dwelling down below,
Stuck between them creatures we are,
Unaware bout were to go.

Swaying along with the breeze of Life,
Treading upon the steps of Time,
Stumbling, falling, rising up,
Doubtful bout when to stop.

Made are we of both light and dark,
All of us dying to leave behind our mark.

Some of us see the Moon rise up,
Some of us see the Sun go down,
Some of us play all our part,
While others forget where to start.

We run, we run,
We run so far,
We sting, be stung,
Caress a scar,
For this life is like a winter's shower,
A life that we call our,
A life that we call our.

Shree

Alireza Taheri Araghi | The Immortals of Tehran

BLURB: As a child living in his family's apple orchard, Ahmad Torkash-Vand treasures his great-great-great-great grandfather's every mesmerizing word. On the day of his father's death, Ahmad listens closely as the seemingly immortal elder tells him the tale of a centuries-old family curse . . . and the boy's own fated role in the story. Ahmad grows up to suspect that something must be interfering with his family, as he struggles to hold them together through decades of famine, loss, and political turmoil in Iran. As the world transforms around him, each turn of Ahmad's life is a surprise: from street brawler, to father of two unusually gifted daughters; from radical poet, to politician with a target on his back. These lives, and the many unforgettable stories alongside his, converge and catch fire at the center of the Revolution. Exploring the brutality of history while conjuring the astonishment of magical realism, The Immortals of Tehran is a novel about the incan

Poem - #13 | Utopian Dystopia | On Poverty and Racism

On Poverty and Racism They say it ain't good When you show your cunning self But when you have to beg for food Being honest is of little help. Sit in the heat, sit in the rain; Is it the best way, you use your brain. But you know what? The rich don't care, About the miseries the poor share. Oh! Please don't spit there Thats where I sleep dear: And don't you piss there My food is in there! Yeah you heard it right But you still will fight, With the people and the government, Everytime they have us money, lent. For the rich get richer,  And the poor - poorer: Very few things in this world Are more truer, Than this clich├ęd phrase. You see, we live in such a country When dogs are prayed but men slayed, On the basis of their so-called caste How long do you think can such a rule last? And the black men, kicked out and murdered Just because God had them coloured. And yet they say we live in an uto
