Monkeys can be poets too!

And how I became one..

(A poet; not a monkey!!!)

~ Diwank Singh Tomer ~

By the way,
A million monkeys typing away at a million keyboards can't even recreate Shakespeare's name.

Here's proof.

Most of what I do is centered around one thing.



Simplicity is the ultimate sophistication.

Leonardo Da Vinci

~ Perfection ~

Some of us

love to chase


Some have


to run after

~ Perfection ~

But there's one other

curious kind

that'd rather have perfection

For him,

Seas aren't

deep enough

~ Perfection ~


challenge him not

and flowers lack color

He is looking

for something


~ Perfection ~

Something far

in lands unknown

and seas unexplored

He is restless

and this world,

only shackles

~ Perfection ~

To go there

he must

break free

Taking off

he looks back

one last time

~ Perfection ~

And right there

his eyes finally see

the extraordinary

the flowers

the sunset

and people and love

~ Perfection ~

His breath is gone,

his heart pounds,

and the winds whisper,

If this is not


then what is?

Okay, now let's be honest.

Poets are idiots.

I'm living proof.

Just like that.

You try to be moody when you're young and it had a good ring to it.

Jim Capaldi

~ Just like that. ~

I'm the moody parrot.

Says stuff.

Acts awkward.

Dances a little.

Flies away sometimes.

Just like that.


I'm a bit different.

I'm one with dreams.

And I live to chase 'em.

I'm a performer.

The Performer.

All the world's a stage, and all the men and women merely players:
they have their exits and their entrances;
and one man in his time plays many parts, his acts being seven ages.

William Shakespeare

~ The Performer. ~

I am in awe.

Of this violently beautiful Universe.

Its endless chaos.

I am surrounded by extraordinary beauty.

A flurry of emotions.

The teeming millions.


Breathing the same air.

Each last particle dancing,

Jiggling to the one rhythm,

Reverberating through the Cosmos.

What would I not give,

To live like this forever...

But, I too am a performer,

Jiggling to that Cosmic tune,

Who one day shall see his Act to the last.

Life is hard.

After all, it can't be fair to everyone.

Especially to morons.

Who let people go.

p.s. If you see her, tell her I said hello.


Gravitation is not responsible for people falling in love.

Albert Einstein

~ Sometimes. ~

Someone very special has left my life.

Probably forever.

I'm one who never said

what I should have a hundred times.

I understand too that sometimes

somethings are not in your hand.

Now. It's too late.

Boy, I have faith.

But, all you can do is trust the stars.

The puppet sometimes.


Love is a tricky business.

You almost certainly fall for melancholy.

Gradually though, you always see the brighter side.

Puppets of Destiny.

We are only puppets, our strings are being pulled by unknown forces.

George Buchner

~ Puppets of Destiny ~

I'm only worried because you're too.

Creating demons out of thin air.

Demons unwarranted.

Uninvited. Yet, so real.

Why are we upset?

Upset at an innocent truth.

A reality deemed sad.

I pledge today.


That will hold me together.

An Honest acceptance.

To remember to smile

like I used to.

Can I?

Of course.

We are Puppets of Destiny,

Or are we?

And then slowly, I gather myself.

Like a phoenix, from its ashes.

I'd begun to see.

Do you see?

I find hope in the darkest of days, and focus in the brightest. I do not judge the universe.

Dalai Lama

~ Do you see? ~

Do you see what I see?

I see wonder.

I see freedom.

I see a better tomorrow.

We are often the masters of our fate.

But deny it.

Let's embrace hope.

We are puppets if we wish to be.

Or not.

As I said,

I'm an alien kind.

The kind that'd sit in the theater for hours,

watching Inception many times over.

The kind that has whole worlds waiting for him.

Both outside and deep within.

When I meditate.

Soothsayer: Stop fighting. Let it flow.

~ When I Meditate ~

As I close my eyes

A million voices begin to sing

An eternal hymn

A ballad of the Wisdom of the ages

The sound of breath

The music of silence

Echoes through my heart

Invigorates the soul

Fleeting flashes

Of Colours old and new

The aroma of love

The moisture on her lips

A surge of passion

The unrelenting nostalgia

Agony and regret

Burn within the bosom

Then it all fades away

Visions subside

Sounds muffle

A gripping calm ensues

Beyond all pain

Beyond all pleasure

Standing on the brink of existence

I pass into nothingness


I fell in love.

All over again..


I have fallen in love.

I have found the paradox, that if you love until it hurts, there can be no more hurt, only more love.

Mother Teresa

~ I have fallen in love. ~

I have fallen in love.

With this wonderful world.

With this beautiful life.

Look around.

Everything is just so beautiful.

It gives me so much happiness to live in the moment.

To relish the sheer joy

of learning something new everyday.

The passion of work.

The tranquility of solitude.

Think about it.

Let's just chuck all our worries in a closet.

And lock it forever.

Let's learn how to live.

Not just persist through our day.

Have the courage to do what you love.

Those little things you never care about.

Matter a lot.

Pick up the phone.

Tell people that you love them.

Say sorry.

Be grateful.

You ain't got as much time as you think sonny.

Laugh a little more.

Look at a mirror and smile.

Know that no one can take that away.

I'm only surprised why I've never done this before.

Now, I smile. I dance. I cry.

I can't waste even a single moment of my life in regret.

Anguish and pain are part of life.

But, happiness too is an equal part.

Accept them.

Learn from the moments of sorrow.

Then, laugh them off.

Work. Hard.

Play. Harder.

Take part in a marathon.

Run till your lungs burn.

Relish the moment of victory.

Whatever you do.

Listen to your heart.

Don't let obsessions steal the fun.

Always know when to take a break.

When to get on the table and dance.

Just remember.

Only one thing matters.

And that's you.

Got drunk one day.

Too much grape juice gets to your head.

Then, I discovered Urdu.


A thing of beauty is a joy forever: its loveliness increases;
it will never pass into nothingness.

John Keats

~ Zindagi ~

Zindagi mein itna nasha hai,

Daaru kise chahiye?

Gaur se zara dekhiye to sahi,

Har pal ek nayi mehfil hai.

Us botal ke sahare jiye to kya jiye?

Zara haath thaam ke to dekhiye.

Par lag jaane deejiye har khaawish ko.

Dil ko khula chhod ke to dekhiye.

Kuchh raat saath guzaar ke dekhiye.

Kabr mein to neend bahut aani hai.

Zindagi mein itna nasha hai mere dost,

Daaru kise chahiye?

~ Pariyan ~

Kuchh pariya.n pha.nsi hai.n zameen par

Unko Jannat le jaana hai

Par nahi to kya hua

Firdaus yahi.n pe basaana hai

That's all folks!

Again, you can't connect the dots looking forward; you can only connect them looking backwards. So you have to trust that the dots will somehow connect in your future.
