Falling for Her, Poetry by Shubham Atul Kumar Joshi(SAKJ)

Genre: Sad, Romantic

Falling for Her by Shubham Atul Kumar Joshi(SAKJ)

Falling for her was never a matter of choice,
At its initiation, I knew the probability of being with her,
Was equivalent of getting a seven in a single chance of dice,
If given a chance would have never fallen for her,
If we were not meant to be,
then why the hell I met her….

I tried to hate her yet failed,
I tried to hide my feelings yet failed,
In the quest umpteen times I did hurt her,
If she got hurt coz of me did I really ever love her???
Well this question is of as inconsequence as is my life now,
But I will love her till my last breath that’s a vow……

They say true love never goes unattended,
May be my love was not as true as I had intended,
I fell for her with the way she walked, she talked,
she argued, and laughed like a child,
What I forgot was that from the moment of my birth,
I have been the destiny’s cursed child,
Falling for her was never a matter of choice,
At its initiation, I knew, I needed a seven in a single throw of dice…

IF?…………………………with apologies to Rudyard Kipling, Poetry by Lesley

Genre: Life, Society

 

IF?…………………………with apologies to Rudyard Kipling

 

If you can find your phone

When all about are fumbling in their bags,

If you can self scan shop,

And not find anything scarier, and carry on regardless

When there’s an unexpected item in the bagging area……

If you can choose the queue that has no ringing bell

And pack your stuff and find your purse

Although you feel like hell,

If you can stir a pot and clothe a tot and fill a vacuum flask,

And find a shoe and clear up poo – then you can multitask!

If you can smile when others take the piss

And not ask does my bum look big in this?

If you can fill the unforgiving minute

With sixty seconds worth of emails sent,

Then yours is the earth and all that’s in it –

And what’s more you’ve had  a life well spent

 

Lesley
