What Happens

What happens when branch leaves wither in freezing winter, the tree body stands devoid of leafy clothing all day and night. What happens when frosty cream is sucked from cow milk, the solution rendered listless, resembles white mineral water. ...

What Difference Does It Make? - Part 2

What difference does it make as to whether I met you at the very first cry or the very last cry of my miserably impoverished life; as your robustly humanitarian cheeks; reborn me an infinite times even after the earth had ceased to exist as the; g...

What Difference Does It Make?

Tell me what difference does it make; whether I use my artistic left hand to write; or whether I voraciously emboss alphabets on barren paper with the bohemian fingers in my right? As long as the ramification of it all; is literature which handso...

What About him

Even though you had beautifully sparkling eyes; with loads of charismatic fortitude entrapped in your bones; still you trembled at the thought of clambering up 100 floors of the colossal building without the escalator, What about him who was per...

We've All Been Sent To Win.

We've all been sent on this bountifully eclectic earth; to tirelessly adventure; and not to pathetically stagnate in the corpses of miserably penalizing and delirious depression, We've all been sent on this celestially fantastic earth; to inte...

Were You sleeping?

Were you sleeping when countless infants were being ruthlessly orphaned; left to beg on the discordantly hapless streets; with their limbs horrendously maimed by the treacherously barbarous society? Were you sleeping when countless soldiers were...

We're All humans.

There wasn't a brain born on this fathomlessly enchanting Universe; which came without its share of imbecile eccentricities; at times meandering into the aisles of wholesomely decrepit meaninglessness, There wasn't a lip born on this boundlessly...
