MADE

Red roses were made

for love,
White roses,
for trust.
Green grasses were
made for summer,
the perfect spot to
sip in some sunlight.
Brown dried-up leaves were made
for the wind
to blow them away,
as they desired.
Candies were made
to keep the children
from throwing tantrums
and causing a bad headache.
Cinemas were made
for high school sweethearts
to celebrate an innocent love, just found.
White dresses were made
for ladies,
the kind with noses held up high
and artificial naiveté.
Red dresses were made
for exceptionally beautiful ones,
so they strike
with their love charm.
Puppies were made
for orphans,
to keep them warm at night
and listen to them
think about a regular family.
Kisses were made
for happiness,
the kind you feel when
you look in the other's eyes.
Prisons were made
for every man,
to keep him from
discovery.
Sunshine was made
to be bathed in,
without caring about stretchmarks,
or acne, or both.
Night time was made
to look in the sky,
at the stars
and dream without
waking up too soon;
possibly not by four a.m,
when the alarm goes off.
Music was made
to be felt,
as two tears drench your heart.
Cellphones were made
to distract from
loneliness and fright.
Money was made
to be buried,
where maggots would eat them.
What needs should we have?
Time was made
to be spent with
every ticking tok,
the one you think you love.
Teachers were made
to be taught on
how to teach.
Students were made
to realise the colony
is never to be trusted.
Government was made
to cause chaos
And fix them.
Nightmares were made
to sting
and toughened you a bit.
Children were made
to run around
and cause some screaming at.
School was made,
to trap a man
and subdue his abilities.
Poems were made,
to be scientific equations,
to solve various problems.
Women were made,
to be carefree in
motherhood and weak and strong.
Men were made,
to make their wives happy
and make sure they were carefree
And weak and strong.
You..,
You were made
to misunderstand yourself
and follow a plan.
And I?
I was made
to understand you
and follow the plan.

When my answers come

Life was designed to last once for every individual and as much as that sucks, it is true. We roam through life trying to figure out the true essence of existence and while that urge might be higher in some, it is lower for others. 
I mean, who cares about all of the serious stuff in life right? Roll up some weed, light it, smoke up some dose of daily conviction. Look forward to a what could be a better alternative for essence.
Truth be told, every single one of us humans on the surface of Earth, have that moment. A time when probably in a car driving to work, amid the endless news on the radio, it hits you- the realization of something beyond every individual you pass by on the streets, every nod you get in response to your greeting, every shade of pupils you've stared into.

And yeah, while some might boldly step out and share in an engaging tone, how, they realized, once, years back, the X, Y, Z, that led to making a significant decision in their lives, I sit there and wonder. I wo…

SEVEN MINUTES IN HEAVEN

seven minutes in heaven;
seven minutes counting
heart beats by the second.
six minutes in heaven;
all the while tapping feet
on shaky wooden floorboards
in nervous delight.

five minutes in heaven;
five minutes counting
down to reality:
a beastly, slimy one.
four minutes in heaven;
wondering if by chance
or luck or grace,
a glimpse of an angel
 would suffice.

three minutes in heaven,
and lo a ladybird atop
your nose tickles,
dances, wiggles, jiggles,
then away,  flies.
two minutes in heaven,
two minutes or the next,
daydreams finally might come
to be:
visions of sunny skies,
silly side aching laughs_
chocolatey gums,
all on display
for my ever aching eyes.

a minute left in heaven
the last, the longest,
the shortest it seems,
the last before you wake
and stare at
the computer screen
in a crowded
noisy bureau,
someplace.

you sigh.
"of course it was unreal."
