Tinging a Tear

Have you ever tried to mix the ink of your pen


into the tear fallen fresh

on your book?

Tinging a tear,

how surreal it sounds,

but try it comrade,

and you will love to see what happens.

How you can modify a bio-chemical reaction

of someone’s action outside your body

How the transparent salty product of your eyes

turns into teal, fuchsia or pitch black

How I wish I could colorize

my thoughts|actions|feelings in the same way

How if I could find a pen,

Whose ink could possess the power to affect me and

transform the work of a mortal.

Rise and Shine

Rise and Shine

-Avleen Kaur Lamba

Amidst the sadness, the dull crowd,

Some people with lit faces spread happiness around.

When people feel they are the only ones,

Who suffer from tiny problems but they seem present in tonnes.

We’ll say to them come on look beyond,

Talk to people, share, love, create a bond!

Until you believe it, it’s never the end,

Dont jump off the cliff, but surely bend.

Bend and see the deep blue sea,

And then look behind the world saying “Come explore me!”

Look closely at the happy people, not from far,

They hide it well, but have a deep scar.

All that makes them different is their strong hope,

They know it’s a small hard phase and they can cope.

The message to the world is everything’s gonna be fine,

Stand up high, strengthen the hope, Rise and Shine!

Elegy to the jolliest uncle, who Lived

Elegy to the jolliest uncle, who Lived

-Avleen Kaur Lamba

This elegy is a medium to send love from me to thee
It may seem nothing at all, but futile,
Since people think you’re gone
But to me you’re still present in the early morning dew
In the wind that swirls my curls
In the rich who save love not money,
In the poor who long for God’s hand not land,
And most importantly you’re present in the words of the Lord
Which guide us to live and love, forgive and forget.
The moments I spent with thee, the blessings, smiles you gave free.
When uncles and aunts ate gossips and kids had plenty of cake,
We both in a corner, would talk in and out of little things
like getting an icecream at the lake.
Suddenly I go blank of thy memories with me,
Knowing they’ll suddenly return resulting ink blots on my books.
Feeling hurt when someone utters you lived enough or your suffering ended,
But your teachings of letting the world be, and that all’s god’s will makes me strong.
An 83 year old with the energy of multiple kids combined,
You’re the star that’ll glow in our hearts and throughout eras shine!

We’re The Ones We’ve Been Waiting For!

We’re the ones We’ve been Waiting for

-Avleen Kaur Lamba


Waiting for the buzzing alarm to wake you up in the morn,

Or expecting your mom to drag you out of your yawn?

Waiting for some energy to creep into you and take you on a morning walk,

Or secretly wishing some genie could find you and make you fly with the flock?

Waiting for the time when you could actually concentrate in class,

Or hoping to stumble on a guru who could make you meditate without a fast?

Waiting for someone to befriend you,

Respect you, admire you, love you only when you’re you?

Waiting and waiting for someone who could excite your mind,

Make you write poetry and not let go of your foregone passion behind?

Waiting for someone to stand up and answer that moron,

Who has nothing to spread but everything wrong?

Waiting for someone to make you finally change the world,

‘Cause you’ve come here for a purpose, not just play and work!

Then get up you, if you think and feel the same way,

As We’re The Ones We’ve Been Waiting For, Heroes of Today. 


Ray Of Hope

When the world would sleep in the brightness of Sun,

When the world would hide behind the jobs they’ve never done,

When the world would get sick in spring with no ailment,

When the world listening to music would turn deaf to your qualms,

When the world in debate would become dumb to console you,

When the world travelling would be blind to see you in pain,

A helping hand from a power would arrive,

Would advise you to love yourself and strength to strive,

Never borrow but always his help he would lend,

God would become your lifelong friend.
