Poem By Raghurama Raju

I am not alone
When I walk alone!
Sometimes right to me
Sometimes left to me
Like a sincere friend
Sometimes behind me
Like a faithful follower!
Sometimes ahead of me
like an honest leader!
Along the silent streets
And along the busy roads
He is always there with me!
Only when the day is dark
Or the sky is cloudy
Never does he leave me alone
Sometimes he is shorter than me
Sometimes he appears taller than me
But he never looks equally tall!

I am not alone
When I walk alone!

Because, there is my shadow
To walk along with me!

No, that's not the way
One should compose a poem!
If everybody understands
What's great about it?


What is there,
In that remote village?
Where buses and trains
Never run in your life!

We, Men!

We are men.
We don't know how and what women look for in men!
But we know much about ourselves.
We look at women as lumps of flesh
