Does Life Have a Meaning ???



“One writes a poem

when one is so taken up

by an emotional concept

that one is unable

to remain silent.”


Stephen Dobyns



Haiku :

Does potential count

Could we be better people

The prospects waning


Emotions all quenched by fear

To placate mother, others


Time to make a stand

Feel the spirit arising

Satisfied with me




Goes on

To what end

In spite of me




Trying to balance the life
Between the responsible and the silly
Attempting to avoid the strife
Do we need to grow up really

Does our life need a philosophy
Can’t we just wing it day by day
Why do they demand us to live consciously
I would rather we just go out and play

Does life have a meaning
Should we just sit around and ponder
Ignoring what we are feeling
Is time ours to squander

The soul is so mysterious
The Uni-verse is made of love
So let us all not be so serious
Just agree to meet later in the above

ME and the Boss
