Quest

Poem By Vidushi Khera

Directionless as the air, with nowhere to go.
Suspended like a particle with knowledge all around.
Yet unable to bring together things…aside, above and below...
Only capable of carrying the nothingness that is found.

Turning into liquid which takes the shape and understands…
The intricacies of its surroundings, yet with no form of it’s own.
But at least it learns and shapes itself to the knowledge at hand…
And with a gust of pointless air, is not so easily blown.

Lo and Behold…it musters itself to form a solid mass…
Visible as a shape, tangible as a form, has an identity – a body like gold
A body of knowledge that it has amassed
And now holds it’s own without support – reaching the zenith of its existence in this world

When the hopes of life lead to dead ends
When all your surroundings have nothing to give
And you can’t imagine life the way you live

Knowing Me

I'm and ordinary person with extraordinary thoughts, yeah that's me –
I’m quite different in a lot of ways you see.
I love you; yeah I’m crazy about you,
And every one else too.

Behold… A Marvelous Game! !

When at the end of the day
As the light seems to fade
When eternity meets eternity
As the endless earth meets the endless sky

Don'T Think That I...

Don't think that I am
Waiting to be told what I have to do
I can think my way through
And I'm thinking

Painkillers

My heart ached with sorrows that I had all my life,
It was like being cut to pieces by a knife.
But just as I was about to die, just before it was too late,
I got joys that were like painkillers, but side effects filled my heart with hate.

The World Is In Pain

This world was once as bright as gold
With happy people young and old
But then as the people tell
To the evil goodness began to sell
