Karmic Chakra of Pain

Karmic Chakra of Pain, originally uploaded by firoze shakir photographerno1. born on the street
on the heartless street
she will remain
her life revolving
round the karmic
chakra of pain
very soon she
will be a child mother
another childhood
going down the drain
a cipher on the soul of society
a brainless heart a heartless brain
more sorrow more misery ingrain
like a sordid chapter lost in transit
tear drops in vain
through sunken cheeks
pitter patter of rain

Hopeless Homecoming

Hopeless Homecoming, originally uploaded by firoze shakir photographerno1. on the streets
of despair
elusive hope
they search and grope
slaves of misery
bound by rope
for a new life
there is no scope
the graph of pain
a downward slope
children on failed destiny
on drugs and dope
a failed karma
they have to cope
visited by the sins
of their forefathers
washing the guilt
with a bar of soap

Flickr allows them to breach my privacy.

With Best Wishes From Mumbai

With Best Wishes From Mumbai, originally uploaded by firoze shakir photographerno1. by the road
of the road
for the road
born to beg and die
on the internet
as a pedestrian poem
as we meet your eye
despair sorrow misery
hidden beneath a cry
from the streets
to your computer
as we winglessly fly
meaninglessly our pain
transcending the treacherous terrain
of a starless sky
with best wishes from Mumbai
silence of a slaughtered lamb
as the blood flows and dries
in a land of vultures
among the lord of flies

Hunger Lives Within Us

Hunger Lives Within Us, originally uploaded by firoze shakir photographerno1. a life we lead
without fuss
hunger lives
within us
ashes to ashes
dust to dust
iron in the soul
we rust
it was the egg
or the child
that came first
rains cloud burst
yet dying on the streets
of thirst
celluloid dreams of
slum dog millionaire
our future life

Jesus in Mumbai

Jesus in Mumbai, originally uploaded by firoze shakir photographerno1. as he walks
the streets of mumbai
the pain the passion
of his people within a sigh
14 stations of the cross
a path to peace
no person will ever deny
to save you from
he had to die
I am the Resurrection and the Life
words in introspection as his only reply
in the land of his birth
death devastation
a motherless child
a wasted cry
Israeli bombs
as gifts to humanity
from the sky

Dedicated to Da Vinca
Revised Poem
