Poems by Tulsi Shrestha
AN ENCOUNTER WITH MAD MAN
While I am walking proudly on the road .
A mad grabbed my neck from behind
Enquired me with bloody red eyes.
Who are you to create the truth. …?
That too is for your own benefit .
“Run away oh mad , I will hit…”
I threatened him with a shout
He laughed aloud and asked
“Who is mad you or me….?”
“Stand before mirror ask yourself ”
Flavour of flesh of innocent animals
That you enjoy in name of sacrifice.
Killing His own creations to please Him
Aren’t you superior to God himself …?
Your society retains power
To burn alive bride with dead husband .
Have ever noticed yet, cruel crocodile …
Killing and eating its own generation.
Oh what a sound mind , you all do have !
Killing millions of your own destiny in name of
Religion and race, nationality and sovereignty
Don’t ,you feel any shame. ..yet
To rationalise crime against humanity
With interpretation of your cruel logic .
Still, you dare to call me Insane…..
I am human with alive volcano
Boiling lava inside me… going to
Explode over all of you…..”
He cried aloud ha ha ha…
I felt the sky cracked with his laugh
Now it is my turn away from his grip
What an encounter with a mad !
I enquired with myself. .who is mad he or me ?
One who manipulates morality for one’s benefit or
One who explodes philosophy in unconscious state.
PHILOSOPHY OF LOVE
The pages of rhythm of my own life
Never matched with content of rhymes .
Like a couple ,one can’t see
and another can’t hear.
She cannot perceive the most enchanting
voice and melody of her own beloved .
He cannot watch the most gorgeous
beauty of his own beloved.
Still they are perfect and ideal couple
in reflection of society and culture .
All his songs reveal beauty of femininity .
But none of them create image in mirror .
Her beloved prepared a full page of essay
explaining excellence of music and melody.
She is beyond his imagination .
He is indeed beyond her perception.
But souls of these two,
dissolve inside one platform.
Both of them remind it as
ecstasy of passionate
DUALITY WITHIN YOU
Feel proud to join in procession of animals right
But you still enjoy flavour of flesh in dinner night.
Manipulate the meaning of sovereignty and
To feed fruits of invasion enclosed inside
A world that belongs to you, no right for
others to view.
Still you cry aloud ‘Humanity Resided Inside
Dialectical conscience always revolves inside
To destroy the serenity of mankind within you
Advocate in favour of humanity in sunshine
Programme to conquer the world in mid night.
Sympathise in griefs of neighbours in day light
Plan to capture resources belong to them in
A glory of walk to new house painted with
Might turn a laboratory to culture a race of
your own choice.
Ambition that you got, keeps away others
from their faith.
A dawn of destruction peeps out from white
Duality inside you, will reverse what you say
Feel glorious to announce as Advocator of
But not hesitate to flood blood for few inches
Need to feel shame to cry in favour of
equality and justice
When you are one who violates human rights
Your shadow might have frighten Peace and
Indeed, you are a human, but without heart of
Just to nourish your ego, you enjoy to
You dream to visit Mars for your lustful honey
While people here, die without a drop of water
Still you always try to justify evil attitude as
Dual parameters to blame others and justify
Proclaim yourself as an angel who preaches
The criteria of morality changes along with
power you gain.
What you remarked as illicit, starts to get your
Dual personality turns out to be reality of your
You are product of your own decisions, not
Any things that you do is a reflection of duality
You ensure duality as gate of fate for your
Might not have suffered from incurable
symptom of duality
If you have remained innocent and ignorant as
Triumph of victory, an illusive
achievement…Isn’t so oh my friend?
