I sit infront of the portico
Thinking about my stolen dreams
I never knew who the thief was
Even if I knew,
I never had the courage to face him.
I never wanted to go to that unspoken place
That place where he hid my dreams
That place which was locked tightly using apprehensions.
That place where my dreams took a backseat
That place where dreams considered themselves to be nightmares
That place where dreams were burried alive in a coffin of compromises.
I found the key
The key to my dream yard
The key to my strength
The key to my courage
The key to the rebirth of my dreams
The key to my happy life

Black & white
We hugged affectionately and went for a stroll in the woodlands.
and I was jolted awake from my reverie.Why am i not fair? I catechized myself.
- Is it my fault that i am born like this?
- Will my dream of being friends with people who are not of my color ever come true?
- Is me dreaming of being treated as an equal not fair?This is the story of every other person who is not as fair as you are..sorry..it ain’t a story it’s the reality.
We have reached the mars and are happy that we have hit a homerun but a simple thing like not being a racist is still a pipe dream .I don’t say that everyone is against racial discrimination, but the world has not completely changed my friends. We should put our shoulder to the wheel and work towards a better tomorrow.
- How can people be so shallow in their thoughts?
- How can being black be considered as a sin?
- How can the color stop you from being who you are?
Though it might sound cliché,it is the inner beauty that matters.
You might be fair and still be an ass.
You might not be fair and still be world class.
So the concept of black and white is completely irrelevant.
Be true to yourself and to the the people you love.
In this dog-eat-dog world,i am sure one day we can grab this tree of racism from its roots and burn it to ashes.
