This Moment I live

In my chase of moments
Yet to come,
I drown fixing problems
I have yet to face.

This is my moment,
My only moment
To live;
I have lost:

Life.

Waiting

Everyday seems I am reminded
Of the time, the minutes, the seconds passing
As the clock ticks, never stopping.

In a time where there are no worries,
No stops, no heartbreaks, no turns.
I would like to stop and breathe.

I would like to see hope come true,
I would like to see it all be worth it,
I would like for time to stop.

And not ask of me to worry
About the next moment,
The next day, the next month.

Waiting to live, just for today.
For me alone.

Illustrious Life

Life is an illustrious ball
With men and women dancing tall.
Sometimes together in orbit;
Often in undeniable repulsion.

None the less it all goes:
Round and round like clockwork,
Days changing to night and
The nights awakening to mornings.

Here we are: where we started.
Having twirled in a circle,
Now back to where we started.
Take a bow try again.

I Just Know

Where there is silence
Symphony will soon follow
Light will only shine
In the blinding darkness

The sweet scent of Jasmine
Fills the air as the wind blows
In a new direction
hearts that follow, see it

Rosy pink and majestic
A new dawn is begun again
To celebrate a new arrival
A beautiful new beginning

A turn in destiny
bejeweled with a newness
A blissful ambiguity
A skip in your heart beat

Fingers dance gracefully
over the piano in honor
Of a hope set to arrive
late yet long awaited

It’s here and
I just know it.

Try Again

Sunrise

The sun rises
The sun sets
The clock churns
Time goes on

Someone is born
Someone dies
Victories are won
Disasters strike

Calamities are overcome
Battles are lost
Hopes are won
Desires are crushed

The day ends
The clock is reset
Your chance ends
A new day is born.

Try again.

Wing it!

Life is a riddle
Spilling with opportunities
Pregnant with choices

What will I do?
Be tempted or die?
Run or sit tight?

Bad timing, why don’t you go?
Perfect timing, come on by!
My timing, totally absurd!

Here I am
Opportunity, here you are
Damned if I do, Damned if I don’t

The choice is mine
It’s not all clear
Am I ready?

Hell, I’ll wing it!
My chance,
I’ll take it.

Khushbo.

Truce and Happiness

Time you wasted
Desires you crushed
Hopes you halted
Endlessly I sighed

Why pretend
You don’t care
Its true.
I’ve learned to
live alone

You accuse me of
Callous rudeness
Its my shield you see
My armor at war
I fight alone

I want a truce
peace at long last
our kingdoms apart
borders etched
in chalk

Its not my duty
to change you
Its not my destiny
to chain you

You can shine
or you can crumble
its all up to you
life is our canvas
to draw or leave
empty

Still
I pray to God
for happiness
for you, unequal
and surreal
