I sit and stare, stare at you,
Hoping to find a reason why I am stuck on you –
But, I find nothing,
You are all negatives,
A silhouette of white and grey hues –
We are bonded by nothing,

What led to this decision? Continue reading

Like a new born child
Is yet to have
Its first cry Continue reading
There’s one tough question for all genuine thinkers. The puzzling question is: Which faith does God belong to?
