Random 16: Optional

Childhood game.

Agree and disagree.

Disagree and agree

was simple and fun.

Being in adulthood

for a long period.

Things are twisted.

Minds get rigid.

Ideas are fixed.

Windows are

tightly shut.

Agree – disagree

is not fun any more.

Friends mock others.

For being liberal.

For being kind to others.

Being rationale.

And most of all

for opposing

the fake image

of nationalism.

Staying and suffering

was optional.

The weight of

fake friendships was

heavy.

She chose freedom.

Now question is

Will she be happy?

Random 9: Pandemic

Don’t grieve. Anything you lose comes round in another form ~ Rumi

My heart goes

out to all

who are grieving.

Known or unknown.

Every news of

covid-19

is painful.

Watch it

or not.

People are

suffering and dying

due to inefficient

public health care

system.

Where are

we heading 😢

These are

just a number

until they

reach

the door.

Stay safe.

Help yourself.

Help others.
