The Story Of Dime

Poem By Radhika Karia

Once upon a time; there was a dime,
This traveled from pocket to pocket.
It had its own fame, and a widespread name,
That no one ever dared to mock it.

It gave us joy; it was not a toy,
It was something to keep with pride.
It made us glad; it could make us mad,
It was something we had to hide.

Sharing it was tough; it made people bluff,
It was envied by one and all.
If it was passed a lot; or made a lot,
Somehow its value would fall.

It became a need; a strong creed,
And overruled the world of trust.
Lies were born; relations were torn,
From love it turned into lust.

This dime created; a world that is hated,
In a strange sort of way.
It made history; I do agree,
But it will destroy humanity one day.

Angel's Wings

I dropped from the sky, like an angel with no wings;
I was like a nightingale, who couldn’t sing.

I had parents who were happy but later tore apart;


Forget his name, forget his face
Forget every story, forget every place.
Forget the smoke, forget the calm,
Forget the love, and forget the harm.

Some Said...

Some said I had lost my mind,
The first time, on you, when I laid my eyes;
I was not sure if I was thrilled or petrified,
Cos you saw through me with no lies.

Thinking Of You

Months passed, days passed and even hours,
I was lonely looking at the stars.
Thinking of you, my love, my dear,
Fills my eyes and brings me a tear.

A Permanent Mark

The lust in your eyes told me you wanted me;
The distance, the time, away from you haunted me.

I came to you with all the love I had stored for you;

Mother… An Angel

A mother, an angel with wings of gold,
She puts us in the sun, and helps us mould.

Her sweet talks and her purposes so bright,
