Life is a race, Sometimes you win, sometimes you lose, Whatever is the case, Just never slow your pace, For – you will always get a chance to hit an ace. There will be times, When you’ll have to endure a winless streak, But, let it not make you meek, Instead, take this as an

Melbourne – The Poem

From the face of it, Life in Melbourne may seem all rosy, But, to be honest, It’s far from a doozy; You grind out the whole day, Yet, at the end of the day, You still still find yourself in dismay; You try and wrap up all your pending tasks, Yet, eventually, You find yourself

Disengage – The Poem

When people try to intentionally disturb you, Disengage, Nothing undermines the attention-seeking personalities of dolts more than not being paid attention to; When people pass remarks about you, Disengage, It has a curious effect of making them look like a big fool; When people criticize you for no reason, Disengage, Nothing frustrates them more than

The Imperfect Man – The Poem

Call me a loose cannon, But I don’t like to walk on eggshells, Call me reticent, But I express myself in my own way, Call me diligent, But I believe God resides in the minutae; A maverick, I might, or might not be, But I absolutely abhor policing of legal thoughts; Being less than perfect,

Depression – The Poem
Depression – The Poem

Synopsis: I won’t deny: I suffer from depression from time to time. I know how it feels, and feel I can articulate the experience better than those who don’t go through it. This is a small part of the reason for me writing this poem. There is another important reason that compelled me to write it.

There Will Be People – The Poem

  Verse: There will be people who wouldn’t let you live, Just leave them for good; There will be people who will never do right by you, Don’t worry about them; There will be people who will drag you down, Get rid of them if you can; There will be people who will put you
