Obscure Hints (a poem)

They talk of footprints
Along the winter sand
Those obscure hints
Of God’s guiding hands

When we’re struggling
We believe God is hiding
It feels so puzzling
When our life is backsliding

Tiny Speck in the Mountains (a poem)

Waves of mountains in distance – stop to take a look
Pastel pink, blue, and yellow – looks like a painting
I feel small amid grandness – tiny speck out here
The journey is not done yet – it has just begun

Searching for Wholeness (a poem)

Searching for wholeness, never out of reach
The constant push-and-pull of emotions
Ebbing tides of epiphanies and stagnation
It’s always right there – inside of us

A walk through the neighborhood
Among swaying trees and greenery
Sometimes you forget nature could
Soothe your senses and bring you back
To the center of everything

Blue Thoughts (a poem)

We had blue thoughts back in those days
When it seemed, the skies were always gray

Cloud a mind that eventually strays
And wants to cut the cord of thought

Mania Again (a poem)

My mind explodes in pain
It’s like a volcanic eruption
I know that I am not sane
And my life is an interruption

The prophets foretold my death
On a lonely street in a distant city
The madmen screamed ‘till I was deaf
Then the hospital committed me

We are the Machines (a poem)

Ensconced inside the machines
I am no longer human now
But part of the digital whole
Hallelujah, my brothers and sisters!

Say a prayer for the internet
And let go of all your worries
And those mistakes you regret
We all have the same disease

The disease is the digital utopia
And I must say, it feels grand
To lay inside the machines
Where my consciousness expands
