    Default Laughter on a sinking ship

    Follow us on Social Media

    People tell me
    Try to laugh at life

    I smile
    and find joy in children's laughter
    the swaying of trees and singing of birds

    I close my eyes and sigh
    as I hear
    trickling water
    feeding the earth
    growing the food to maintain our existence

    Everywhere I look
    I find glimpses of beauty-
    the root of joy
    In all things green and pure

    But to laugh at the foolishness of man
    the biased hate of black and white
    the stomping pride of arrogance
    Shameless boasting and obscenity
    the whirling laughter of intoxicating power -

    In these, there is no joy

    The hardness of the human heart!
    How many are buried
    whose hearts died long ago?

    Like hardened earth that leaves no trace of footsteps
    unlike soft green grass that
    bears the imprint of those who pass

    Hardened hearts
    blossom into beauty
    when truth and softness
    cover their darkness with light

    We eat, we drink, we sleep, we work,
    we love, we hate
    our birth is followed by our death
    its time unknown

    All that's really ours
    is what our hands have sent forth
    In a world where virtue is scorned

    Time passes like sands through an hour glass
    like the steady motion of a sinking ship
    and we, on board
    oblivious to its downward turn

    To the very end
    are we bent on laughter?

    While others weep,
    can we smile -
    When cries of injustice
    echo in our ears?

    like so many bubbles of joy
    on waves of inhumanity.
    Pyar Na Dil Se Hota Hai, Na Dimaag Se...
    Pyar To Ittefaq Se Hota Hai.
    Per Pyar Karke Pyar Hi Mile...
    Ye Ittefaq Kisi Kisi Ke Sath Hota Hai.
