Proud

February 9, 2015 Leave a comment

When was the last time someone told you they were proud of you?

Flying on a magic carpet
To exotic countries
Greeted with cheers by die-hard fans
Crying to catch a glimpse of me

A shining limousine picks me up
Protected by body guards
From media and paparazzi
Fans vie for my attention

Whatever I need appears
I have the magic midas touch
The world around – a maze of mirrors
Everywhere I look there is just me

Sucked into a vortex
By fame, pride and wealth
Drawn away from love
My own being has deserted me

This mind, intellect and ego
Truth, knowledge and freedom
Happiness, fearlessness and fame
Are all an illusion

Blowing away my magic carpet
Pricking the balloon of my ego
I was pulled down to earth
By a shattering quake

Jolted from my reverie
Half-asleep and inebriated
I held on to my prized possessions
Self-belief and happiness

Peace

December 9, 2010 2 comments

The ubiquitous lust for power
Constant strife and discord
War, discontent,  terror and arson
The constant rhetoric and finger pointing
Arms race and nuclear buildup
Bloodshed and broken rubble
Shuffle like images in a kaleidoscope

The fleeting dove has lost its way
In this illusory maze
Deluded in anger , lust and envy
Its vision is blurred
Seeking the rainbow -utopian and ephemeral
The naive man rushes outward
Hidden in his own bosom
Is the lasting peace he seeks
