Peace of mind

I keep thinking why is this life so complicated.
Sometimes we feel elated and in other times very low,
It brings struggle with every moment's blow.
When will we get that peace of mind,
for which everyone strives to make life sound.
sometimes getting peace of mind seems to be inevitable,
then why we struggle to make it credible.
Oh! there I see a lad with tattered clothes,
with smile which I wish never fades.
He is happy in his own world,
very unaware about this dirty world.
Dirty world i mean here is the world of corruption, crime and politics....
To secure their votebank, politicians apply manier tactics,
they communalise the society and instigate the brothers to spread hatred among themselves.....
Sometimes i feel,
Why is the world so mean,
for one's own gain ready to cut anyone's vein..
The limit gets crossed when a man when ignored by wife,
in order to have dirty pleasure in his life,
kills her and fulfills his lust with her numb body.
Oh god, what kind of world are we living in?
where there is no one to see all these sins,
The rich is becoming richer and the poor, poorer.
On one side i see an eminent buisness tycoon gifting his wife a hefty aircraft
and there i see a poor person dying struggling the chilling cold.
My inner voice keeps asking,
Is this the world which is worth living,
where there is hatred all around.
It always compels me to ask a question to myself and to someone there,
somewhere there in the sky........Will i ever get that peace of mind?


  1. This just about sums up the life in the metros. Great poem. Keep it up!

  2. This is what a complete package is.. compels you to think " are you living in hell ?" believe me things are worse in small towns.. I have witnessed ppl selling their children at a Rajasthan village. Blast victims at Sarojini Mkt. Gruesome!!
    anyways gr8 work keep it up.. !!

    and u dont hav to go to sky, I can suggest u a place to find peace of mind - Ramakrishna Mission, gole market.. :)

  3. I don't knw where is dis world heading towards.
    i will surely try to visit Ramakrishna mission soon.
