Are you a writer?
I noticed a pair of raised eyebrows!
Left or right wing,
Do you have an ism?
I was bombarded with questions!
Do you keep roza?
And why are you
Breaking your fast at iftar?
Haven’t you seen me in temples
In a serpentine queue to get the blessings?
I was also there in the church
For Christmas to light a candle
And to attend a midnight mass.
Didn’t you notice my soul flying high
During the meditation on Buddha Purnima?
I was in lime light on a Parsi
Friend’s Navroz party
Enjoying the delicacies.
Yes, I’m a spiritual person
Not to mess with religiousness.
Praying for the humanity
Begging for peace to the almighty.
Not to be bound in a narrow boundary,
But, striving to reach above all.
The curious eyes were blinking in disbelief,
I was happy inside me, to be questioned often,
So the opportunist in me could spread the message-
Of humanity and peace.
