Because I am Man

When I am shattered, I can’t cry,
Have to smile, I have to show off nothing happened,
Because I am man,


When I lost, my beloved,
Have to collect myself, I have to carry on,
Because I am man,


When I am pierced,
I can’t announce, I have to keep quiet,
Because I am man,


When I am being cheated,
Have I to swallow, I have to wear silence,
Because I am man,


When I am in agony,
Have to relax, I have to keep calm,
Because I am man,


I can’t say I love you, I am not supposed to be emotional,
I can’t say I am sorry, I am not supposed to have weak,
I can’t say I need you, I am not supposed to be fragile,
I can’t say I am exhausted, I am not supposed to be robust,


All these, expectations, desires, rules and traditions
of this world, from  this society,  for this gender,
All are good, still, I would say to you
Men are not apathetic.

I am Nomadic

I am Nomadic


One day while hiking to my way,

A sunny humid day, roaming alone towards my unknown destiny

Silently and calmly moving towards nowhere,

Not feeling any pain, frozen grin,

Lost to my own world, just scrolling with time

It was my simple, decent life,

But sudden.



I feel a breeze on my shoulders, whispered into me in lusty sound,

I am with you on this deserted trail of life,

“You could not see me, you could not feel me, but I am with you”.

A sound   thousand miles away from me, but feeling somewhere from within me.

I astounded I turned up it was you.



I solicit her how elongated our journey is my lady..?

She said. As long you could walk..  a Nomadic, a Wanderlust

I am with you. How near, how dearer can say.

But  it is sure ..I am with you, 

From that day till now

I am Nomadic……
