What if ? or What ?

What if –

What if man was happy?
Can he take happiness?
What if man was successful?
Would success go to his head?

What if all women ruled?
Could they rule out their hearts ?
What if you let the child grow?
Would the child outgrow innocence?

What if there was no big war?
Would the ego wars within end?
What if the world was a happy place to live in?
Would it remove our internal sorrows?

What if we had no pollution?
Are our hearts anti –pollutant?
What if life came to an end?
Is this life worth living?

What if we all try to change a bit?
Will bit by bit change the world?

So What –

So what If I can’t rise?
At least I can ask for one!

So what if I am a single Casanova?
At least I am not a married vagabond!

So what if I am married?
At least I have kept only two!

So what if I am divorced?
At least I was not the only one infidel!

So what if I lie?
At least I am not twisting the truth!

So what if something happens to me?
At least I am better off dead..than living!

So what if life stinks!
At least I have a Deo!

So what if I will suffer one day?
At least I am living it for today.!

How I feel, the way I feel,
this time and moment intact,
often times I think how-to-react,
it's a mixed feeling you know
mixed with joy and anticipation,
or nervousness and palpitation,

How I feel, the way I feel
Too much to think
and time is the only link
to reality and expecations
of prayers and affections
Reaching the destination

How I feel, the way I feel
the love for her and my child
and my dreams so wild,
I want to explore the future,
to see our treasure,
knowing not to expect too much or less,
whatever happens may God Bless !

Scrambled Egg

Want this ,
Want That,
But get not what I want,
Sometimes, It’s tit-for-tat,
Or simply brick-bats,

Crib on this
Fuss on that,
I eat more and get fat,
I never “have” but always “had” !
Good sometimes, But mostly bad.

Jealous of this ,
Envious of that,
He has this, he had that,
Keep consoling I was better,
But still come out a cropper.

Life is like a piece of cake,
Only too many things at stake,
Or too many mouths for the only steak,
God ! please give me a break !

Somebody give me the answers I beg,
Coz all I’m trying to do,
Is unscramble my scrambled egg.!

You Can’t unscramble your scrambled Egg !

Gyanban's thoughts -

I thought about this at the breakfast table one day,when my scrambled egg wasn't done well,I tried to fix it at first,
put some butter,added some pepper,still no good,toasted some bread,still not enough perfection,garnished it with
some coriander,I thought maybe the look and smell would make it different.

It occurred to me..this is exactly what happens in real life.We try to over work the solution...but - hey there isn't one sometimes.If you have screwed it can't unscrew it.what is done cannot be undone.We chase perfection all out lives , yet many don't die happy....similarly, some of our actions and deeds once done, cannot be undone no matter what the measure.
Therefore,peace of mind will be in acceptance,then realization,and then making sure
you have learn't something from it. History will therefore never repeat it self.

Enjoy the bite !

Looking glass

I look through the looking glass,
the world I see is a farce,
filled with hate and corruption,
giving into unreal devotion,

a farce where hypocrisy prevails,
and true identity is under veils,
Vexed are those who dare,
lie in a dark corner bare,

Bare your soul to none,
with no where to run,
you 'll cry alas alas,
and just wish there was no looking glass...

Gyanban's thoughts -

an imaginary world,duality is the order of the day, it's everywhere..within and is ingrained in our system
how are we going to find our soul guide?

Forbidden dreams

Dream away to glory
vegetarians feast on chicken curry,
affairs last forever,
marriages break every quarter,
colleges are always on strike,
and canteens are forums to write,
where people never get a pay hike,
The forbidden dream is such,
you won't understand much,
you can't feel it,can't dream it but live it instead,
as you wake up realizing you re already dead.

Gyanban's thoughts -

a small poem if you will, some lines really to highlight the ironies of life with a dash of humour,
I think when I wrote this,some of these things were happening in my surrounding...
and in some sense they're still happening...


Icebergs are melting, Facebook vacations are cooling. Business reviews are hot. Whatsapp calls are not, Climate is changing, G...
