Life Within Life

Poem By Hasmukh Amathalal

A concept followed by us since ages
Skillfully adopted and managed
That we lead double standard life
To beat the people with words of double edged knife

Some people are expert in putting false front
They may have all comforts in life yet show it as absent
May live with poor standard as if they have nothing
In fact they are misleading self for something

They may show to others that they are sympathetic
Worry about human sufferings and feel pathetic
Politicians fall under this category and thrive
They get hand on big rehabilitation programme to survive

Even doctors prefer honorable service
They devote few hours in charitable places
Their main objective is not to serve needy
But call them in their clinic just to show they are not greedy

Teachers hardly stay in school to teach
Many good lessons they may take on hand to preach
They may concentrate more on out side tuition classes
They have worn the mask to fool the masses

Traders put label as honest suppliers
They adulterate food and prove as liars
They play with the health of people
Only poor people suffer and land in trouble

Country suffers the field of budget allocation
The aid does not reach to the people in question
It makes way straight to fund managers
Politicians are eager to grab as scavengers

The social service has become tool of unsuccessful
The person, who has failed in life, comes forward to do needful
It is strange and funny to witness such scoundrels
But they are well disciplined to offer orchestrated tell

I was stepping in to become young
I thought it is nice journey but too long
I am afraid and take care not to go wrong
I was expecting everything for song

All Dreams Not Come True ###309(In 500)

All dreams may not come true
All credits due may not accrue
But with true reflection in mind
Ideas newer and newer may emerge and find

A Place Called

place called “home” is to feel homely,
God’s creation standing by to look so lovely,
May be she is with all her elegance,
Everything for sure and no pretence,

Anywhere You Like

You suggested to me let us meet anywhere,

A place Where HE is not there,


Learned poets have said “beauty is to enjoy”
Like fresh flowers always give you joy
Don’t attempt to pluck or destroy
Not to play with it as simple toy

All Hopes Against Hope

All hopes dash against hopes
It is like tight walking on simple ropes
We may counter stiff resistance at high slope
Bonding may not be possible even if you elope
