Prison! #Poem

Once passing by the prison
Thought came to my mind

Why such a big gate to this building?
and why is this compound wall so high?


I asked the reason
No one told me as, I was child!

I arrived here
Inside this big gate

Why there is no connection with the outside world?
and why outside world takes us as criminals?

I understood everything here
But now it’s too late!

To make easy money
We kidnapped our friend

Why, I didn’t listen to my parents?
and why parents didn’t keep an eye on my friends?

Or else I would’ve not done kidnapping and robbery
In a company of bad friends!

Understood this is a dark life
So, completed further education

Why people don’t accept criminals, when they try to live good life?
and why criminals don’t get a chance to become a good person?


So, to start a good life
I want to wipe the stain!

Halloows’ Eve!

Moon reflects bleached coral view
Calls of magical souls receive
Costumes of halloween or something new
On all hallows eve!!

Hey, sense the spirit of halloween
You may receive what is unseen
Curious detectors can be seen
Carved pumpkins and the light within!!

When the bogeyman knocks
You might get shocks
Don’t look at the clocks
Say goodbye to all of them,folks!

In Goa, Priests offer Mass for the “Souls of native”, in the last week of October. Hallows Eve is celebrated here in Goa, but not like the carnival. On the 1st November, “All Saints Day” and 2nd November, “All Souls Day”. We attend Mass in the Church or in the Cemetery

Am I getting old? : Poem

Eyes wide open,
breath kept on hold.
Staring at the new one,
Am I getting old?

All duties are done,
still no one told.
You changed your tone,
Am I getting old?

Guarded your home,
from thieves, because I’m bold.
Still new member is come,
Am I getting old?
