Why You've Fear When I'm Here?

Why you've fear,
When I'm here?
Why shed a tear,
I'm not clear?

You're every year,
Grown up in fear,
That brings you tear,
When you aren't clear.

Show always a cheer,
In place of a tear,
That will, my dear,
Drive away your fear.

If still you've fear,
When I'm near,
You turn deaf ear,
To my words, dear.

An Example's Better Than A Precept

'My son takes sugar candy
Quite often, almost every day.
He doesn't listen to my advice.
Please tell him to stop this practice.'

A mother told a Holy man,
Revered by everyone.
He smiled and replied,
'Next month bring the child.'

A month passed and she came back
'Candy, my child, don't take.'
To her surprise, he advised the Child,
In his usual tone, soft and mild.

To her query why this wasn't told
In the last meeting they held,
He said, 'I stopped eating candy.
I'm now fit to advise him really.'

Know The Game Of Life

A rich man built up a stadium,
In a ground to play every game.
On the day of inauguration,
There was a big congregation.

It was a show of football match
A pleasure for them to watch
Both the teams played well
Kicking forward the football.

The rich man's father,
An illiterate old villager,
Who was the chief guest
Kept his face in utter disgust.

At the end he asked his son
Why each player wasn't given
A ball each to avoid their run
Between goals for that ball one?

Marriage's Made In Heaven

To make a glass cup
It takes few minutes,
But to break it up,
It takes split seconds.

We smell the rose
Not by crushing it,
But thro' the nose,
By handling it soft.

The baby with care
Her mother fondles
As she wants to share
Her love with kisses.

Likewise, a marriage
That's made in Heaven,
Confirms a life bondage
Between man and woman.

Who Discovered The Mirror?

Who discovered the mirror?
We don't, at all, remember.
To show our faces beautiful,
How much it's really useful?

Above the wash basin
The glittering teeth clean
We see first every morn,
Before the day starts on.

The curly hair to comb,
The mustache to trim,
The oily face to foam,
How it helps at home?

Is there any beauty parlor,
Or a fancy dress store,
Or a modern shop tailor,
With no full size mirror?

Hunger, The Pang

Our mother earth gives
For one good grain sown
Hundreds of fresh grains
For our food in return.

How many sweet fruits
For a life time she gives
For one seed she takes
As one tree it grows?

Any animal on the land
Or any bird on the air
For its morrow's food
Does it take all the care?

For the food on the ground
How a crow makes a sound
Of 'caw' to call crows around
Just to share what it found?

Never A Drug-addict Be

A lad went to a chemist
With a big medicine list
Where one puzzling item
Wasn't familiar to him.

'A tablet for happiness, '
Never in his business,
He heard of, any time,
Was that unusual item.

However, he gave a small tablet,
That no where anyone could get,
What the lad ate and thought,
Of no more stress to worry about

The brain, a drug can knock off
And give him a momentary take off
To an unknown distant paradise,
With no pride or prejudice.

Mom or son, who is guilty?

“Mr. John, do you plead guilty,
Or, say for this theft not guilty? ”
The judge asked the young thief,
At the end, this question in brief.

“No, My Lord, I’m not guilty,
I say this upon the Almighty.
To tell the truth, my mom is guilty,
For her care upon me faulty.”

“My dad passed away,
I still remember that day,
When my mom cried,
I was then just a child.”

“In my student days,
I stole in small ways,
Coins from my house.
But my mom ignored this.”

Peace be with you (Latin-Pax Vobiscum)

Oh God! I need a quiet place,
Where flows the nectar of peace,
Not that kind of dead peace,
In the grave, one finds with ease.

I went to the Himalayas Mountain,
But peace there was no certain,
As the solitude tore my mind,
A little peace when I tried to find.

I heard good spiritual lectures,
Those from eminent preachers,
For peace, I left no place unturned,
But with a perturbed mind I returned.

Tell me, oh God, that unknown place,
Where lies that elusive peace,
What I need, now I can find,
So, I’ll have peace of mind.

25 (Thyagaraja) Musicians Admired the Saint

Musicians around the country
Heard the growing popularity
Of the great Saint Thyagaraja,
O’er his devotion to Lord Rama.

They all came one by one,
To the Tiruvaiyar Town
Heard his music, in turn,
Gave him their appreciation.

Gopinatha Bhattacharya from Kasi,
A musician famous in Hindustani,
He came all the way to meet
And hear the songs of the Saint.

Pleased with his request,
A song came out
From the Saint then
A pleasant melodious one.
