Ode to Bombay

Its a trap
Wait, don’t take another step
Its addiction
The pain, the struggle and the web.

You come here
And you think
You think its not forever
But once you taste the poison
Oh you know
This poison tastes much better.

The life will be chaos
The chaos will become your life
The nights and days
The joys and pain
The struggle will give you peace of mind.

Few months down
And you’d want to run away
But I told you its a trap
You can’t find a way.

Even if you do
The peace will come to haunt
This struggle and the chaos
You’ll miss it when you’re gone.

For you know
The struggle taught you
The survival is tough
For you know
The chaos taught you
The life is rough

Not that only chaos is left
When you’re broken and hurt
You’ve sea breeze and sunset
The sand under your feet
And the food on the street
That’s all you’ll need
And there you’ll find your peace.

And when you’re happy
You can do so much
Party with the friends
Or just go for late night munch.

There’s a life in this city
With darkness and light
You can’t live in this city maybe
But you certainly cannot live without.
