Poem 179 - Energyless

Early in morning
No energy to press paste
Don't know how I'll brush

Poem 178 - Blood without a murder?

I come out of the washroom, after cleaning my hand's mud and sand
I see the walls red, I get scared - is it blood? For a moment I just stand
I scream out loud, my mom comes in and looks at the red wall
For a moment she stares, and then comes a smile that is small,
I turn back to the wall and see my little sister sitting with a paintbrush in her hand

Poem 177 - Diwali

Diwali is a festival celebrated in India. It is celebrated by bursting crackers, and it is supposed to be a very happy time during Diwali. A very happy Diwali to all

Diwali-the festival of lights and crackers
Houses are filled with sweet boxes and chocolate wrappers
Light a cracker or eat a sweet
And don't forget to keep you home neat

A festival of love and care
And nights are filled with fireworks in the air
Diwali is here so enjoy this festival
As it is something very special

Start a new life on this festival of light
Wish for a future, that is very bright
On this occasion let us start anew
And pray to god and tell thank you
-Gaurang Rao

Poem 176 - Out On The Roads

Out on the roads, vehicles have filled the street
Crowds in restaurants, no parking space free
I walk past a new restaurant, and warmed by the grill's heat
I look inside and I see a kitchen that is warm and happy

I cross the road, I see a family bursting with shopping bags
I look around and see a shopping complex around the road
As I walk near it, a shopping trolley-a man drags
I take a trolley myself, and the trolley I heavily load

I grab some food, put it in the trolley, to fill my hunger later
I take a can of oil, some pasta, and grab some juice
I grab a can of milk and curds, and I head to the counter
I am on the road again, trying to call a taxi, I am tired and so are my shoes
-Gaurang Rao
