Take some time out,
And ditch all the doubts
Dive into your solitude and pour the gratitude
It is okay to not be fine
Sleep if you want, wake up and run if you wish
Stay untidy like you please or pamper yourself with a spa breeze.
Munch on the veggies or dig in the junk
Read your favourite book or watch your favourite show.
Roam out with your friends or gift your family some time.
For once, let go all the stress and focus on loving yourself
For this canvas is yours to paint on
with all the strokes you please
Each will live a trace
So make sure to practice it with grace
This life is a one time show.
Do not let it go.
There needs to be a time,
When you are more mine
Where i can hold on to it all
Where we don’t have to face this fall
It amazes me how all of it passed
All it took was a breath and a gasp
The laughs I’ve shared here were the loudest
The fears I overcame here were the scariest
The tears I’ve shed here were the thickest
The lessons I’ve learned here will be the biggest
When it all sums up and gives me a lifetime joy
My heart screams ahoy!
No one will say none will scream out loud
But deep down we all know
The heart got lucky enough to stay
Doesn’t have boundaries that compel it to walk away
It stays were it belongs
A part of it will always long
Long for a little more time a little more mine
Maybe a little lifetime.
How do I let my wings flap,
When everyone stands ready to snap them off.
How do I admire the beauty of the night,
When my eyes are constantly alert to be saved from being the devil’s delight.
How do i enjoy the rain ,
when I am constantly reminded of drowning in it.
How do i feel good about the clean surroundings,
when I know it is because of the tiny hands working.
How do I appreciate the education system ,
When I know the bank balances win over the capabilities.
How do I understand the tradition and idea of marriage,
When i am aware of the sold brides who are underage.
How do I celebrate a child’s birth,
When I know about the increasing numbers at the orphanage.
How do i see the leftovers in the bins,
When the streets are full of malnourished skins.
How do I support women empowerment,
When I know of the millions who are forced to sell themselves every night.
How do I breath afresh in the warm lemongrass scent,
When I know there’s a hole depleting and going closer to the end.
I do not feel free here!
The true problems are always within and therefore we need to stop covering all the bad by bringing the good in the forefront.
We will be truly free when the fake smiles do not hide heavy hearts, when every human is valued equally and when everything is the same in and out.
Show the bad, work for the bad and bring it out.
Happy independence day!
You are celebrating freedom today and we will be doing the same tomorrow. But deep down, we both know that we still share the same cage that has imprisoned millions of hearts that remain undivided in spite of the borders and the bombs!
The world has so much glory,
But only when it is free from all the agony.
I want a silent night where I’d go on a stroll and observe the beautiful place,
Where hatred and competition doesn’t leave a trace.
When the moon lights up the empty roads, trees provide rest and shelter to the lonely goats.
Where the baby sleeps calmly in the mother’s lap,
And between both’s satisfaction there’s no gap.
Where two lovers meet silently by the side, the flowers and birds bloom aside.
When the tired child sleeps in peace
And every men is at ease.
When there’s no honking on the roads,
no screaming for the odds.
When people are not involved in any fight,
Everything feels so right.
When the vendor doesn’t have to shout,
And no human has to doubt.
This looks like a mirage, like a dream
But your souls will scream
When you know it’s nothing new
It’s the story of every night when the world is at rest and sleeps so tight.
But the night fades and the sun shades the world again
Starting a new game
The world is at rush, the world is at play
Wish there was a further delay
Not the rays of the shining sun, but the calmness of the bright moon give me hope
And shows a world that will cope.
Men has gone so wild and savage,
Only a night can calm the inner rage.
If we could only not hide but say,
There would be a perfect match of what you want and what they give.
Not leave but stay,
Goodbyes wouldn’t be so hard.
Not only laugh but cry,
People would feel it’s okay to express themselves.
Not react but respond,
There would be lesser chaos
Not judge but understand,
There would be less people dying of depression and anxiety.
Not hear but listen,
There would be lesser broken relationships.
Not lie but trust
Happiness would prevail
The world would be a better, happier place with all the simple acts of kindness
No matter how dark a night is, the sun will always rise next morning. It is only hope that keeps us all going.
Wouldn’t it be wonderful to work towards steps to fulfill those hopes
All it takes is the simplification of ways by which we lead our lives
There is no greater loss than the loss of a human.
You love a person, or hate them. You are fond of them or irritated by them. All of it matters only till you are together. Once the person is gone, you miss even the stupidest things about them. And the tragedy is, they don’t seem stupid anymore. The worst thing you can do a to a person is taking them for granted. The worst mistake you can do in your life is not knowing someone’s worth. The love, hatred, joy, friendship, relationship or the bond. All of it exists only till the person does. The person’s talks turn into echoes that fill your ears, the blur sight you try to visualise turns into your tears, their habits turn into your memories, their things and belongings remind you of incidents with them and their laugh turns into something you will forever miss. It is strange how suddenly one day, the person is gone forever and all you had to tell them, all you had to do with them or all the time you had to spend with them becomes just a wish and how you feel you had done that earlier. All of it turns into regrets now
So let go off all the chaos and value each person from your heart.
Because no matter, what bad a person does, it is never enough to justify their lifetime absence.
