losers and winners

Every loser is not unworthy, unfit,
Every winner is not worthy, fit
Sometimes invisible forces meet
To decide who victory shall greet.

little sparrow

the little sparrow chirps and hops
busy flying here and there
looking for crumbs everywhere
her tiny wing barely stops.

hatred

This disease is named hatred
That makes you want someone dead.
The fault is hardly on their part
Because the disease thrives in your heart.

fireflies and stars

Firefly twinkle and glows
Soft breeze in bamboo grove blows
The stars look down at them
Musing if earth is mirroring them

face to face

We disliked each other when we met face to face,
So you donned a mask to hide your face,
You befriended me, acting clever, funny, and coy
Cunningly hiding a distasteful ploy!

devil’s slave

Don’t try to claim you are God’s mortal keeper,
Your actions are more like devil’s slave
Spreading hatred, anger, pain,
Do you think everyone is naïve?

daffodils

The daffodils dance in joy,
Red poppies look sweet and coy,
Bees buzz here and there,
Announcing spring is here.
