The omnipresent spy
Even before you walk,
Your steps I track
Even before you speak,
I record your talk
Even before you think
All your thoughts I sync
Even before you try to wink
I keep you restless and awake ....
Forget your individuality and identity
You are just a 'non- entity'
I occupy all the available space
Like the furtively alert 'Pegasus'...!
Do not raise questions like 'how' and 'why'
I am the omniscient omnipresent spy
Who can demolish any and every question
Before you wonder and feel the sensation !
Blossoming to greet sun,
Hope and optimism
Greets people every morning.
As the day progresses,
Failures interspersed with success
Till late night
Little optimism and
Lot of pessimism
Lead people to pray
For a better tomorrow ....
Have passed this way
But every new year,
And yearnings for a better year
Never cease ...
Every extra day or year
Adds to history of optimism
And existence of life ....!
