Going Home

What you do to me doesn’t matter how I feel is meaningless for this is not a  journey but a sojourn with a quest   This soul’s bled a million blood drops and billion more it shall weep before I can return it to the ‘one’ for eternal keep   I remember not exactly why…

The Humble Wildflowers

Matchbox homes piled up high guarded doors reticent windows behind cautious curtains hide frantic heart beats desperate sighs not a friendly face I spy

Believer

If you’re a believer, come in  Why should it matter  What you eat Where you live What clothes you wear How you tie your hair  How old you are Who your parents are What jobs they do How you cleanup after loo The colour of your skin The language you communicate in If you believe …
