Your Tribe


You’ll search for it all of your life,

A feeling of belonging ;

Soldiers don’t fight and die for queen nor country, my friend;

Brotherhood is what we live for and die for:

It is the only battle cry that has stood the test of time;

For, we are pack animals forged into a tribe;

And, while I may not always agree with you, my brothers;

It is for you, and you alone, I shall willingly lay down my life.

Circles We Roam

The circles we move in,

Are not circles but squares,

Keeping to the corners,

Feeling isolated from the rest;

Like we were eccentric millionaires,

Except poorer by some measures,

Richer in others,

Who are we to adjudge-

Be it circle, square or triangle and your place therein-

When you are the one feeling left-out?

Self-indulgence and narcissism bring their own poverty;

For, whatever your station in life-

(Real, perceived, envied or longed for),

You cannot help wanting to belong.
