  9597.     

Not into The Ocean of Verbiage

too much words
i am exhausted with so many
garbage in this
wasteland of verbiage

this prolixity eventually says nothing
someone leaves
on muted steps

what you hear is the sigh of
nothingness
true, it is true
less is always more

  9598.     

Not knowing you is respect

I ask your name, what you do, what you are,
You said
I do not have to know you
You are nobody
You have no name
You do nothing
You are not what you are

I am not knowing
I do not know you

We call each other as friends
Blind friends
Two blind friends touching a big elephant
And we shall say different things

You are nobody and I am nobody too
That is identity enough
Respect for nobody to nobody
Blindness is now dignity
We feel the heart
Because we have no eyes
We do not touch
We have no hands
We only speak
Because what we have are only
Two hearts. No eyes. No hands.
A mouth a nose. We are breathers in space.

We are incomplete. That is complete
Respect for humanity.

We are simply breathers. Nobody touching nothing.

  9599.     

not me

yes, the ordinary person that you meet
in our town
you do not even know my real name
other than Mister
but i do not really mind
i like it that way
just being another ordinary person
the one that smiles when you smile
at me
as i pass by you and you too pass by me
i do not stare
not that it is unethical but because i have my own thoughts
to ponder for the day

how i live my life in privacy
away from the mob
the crowd
the many
the extraordinary demands of the society
like how the ocean dissolves me
like a drop
in anonymity

i like just being myself
a glistening dew on the petal of a rose
that i put on the glass vase
all alone on the table

yes alone but not really lonely
just being special
to myself

this solitude
regaining strength from the past,

those old days
when my mind was murdered
because i did not bother to guard it
from the multitude
from them
not me

  9600.     

not minding

not minding but letting
the little grow
to be himself a man
of his own making
without
the intervention of
anger
and insult, you find
nature's laziness
complacency and
carelessness merely
seeing but not doing
sitting around things
that the little boy could
have changed early
letting him see the
world unfold before
his eyes
until he becomes a
man
shaped by his own
version of the world
nothing about codes
and behavioral norms
then you set him free
telling yourself
i am so sorry for you
now you are on
your own
clean your own
mess
