Take my hand…

Come take my hand,
Let’s walk to the fringe of the society,
Where stigmas have been stepped over,
Where rules have been bended to fit,
Where the how to’s have been redefined.

Come take my hand,
Let there not be another morning filled with excuses,
For all the things that doesn’t feel right but forced upon us,
That we stay within bounds.

Come take my hand,
Let there not be another night filled with anguish,
That only your soul knows.
But you smile outwards so that you don’t ruffle feathers.

Come take my hand,
Let me lead you to the land of the bold,
Where the lions have walked with their heads held high
Where the warriors have strode towards what felt right.
Where the misfits have not molded themselves to the holes that fit tight.

Come take my hand,
For though the journey is hard and filled with strife,
On your death bed, you will smile!

A New, New Year’s List

HNY2018

My heart is excited at the blank new page that is before me,
Things to do, things to accomplish, places to see,
The list is endless and as same as the previous years I feel.

In this New Year,

What if I focus on joy and that which brings my soul alive?
What if I learn to let go, instead of holding on tight?
What if I learn to listen, instead of trying to tell my side?
What if I learn to love, no matter what their slights?
What if I learn to forgive, instead of defending my right?
What if I learn to live this day – one day at a time?
What if I can carve some alone time to hear the whispers of my heart?
What if I learn to live like my inner child who I had left behind?
Because in the end, it is not what I accomplished in the world that counts,
But how many lives I’ve touched and how alive I was – while I lived, that’s paramount.

Poems

Faith & Hope


At times of distress,

When life seems like one big mess

Like the view from behind a black shade

Where Everything looks bleak and grey

When getting out of bed seems like a hurculean task

And you feel like heading outside with a clowns mask

Keeping putting one foot before the other

And just tell yourself I’ll get thru this  hour

For everyone, we’ve got only this day

Even when life seems all lovely we will never know how long it is there to stay

The miseries that are at your doorsteps

Are not tattooed onto your life forever

With just a dollop of faith and a grain of hope

Take a deep breath and calmly cope

For When you are on the other side, you will see

How this pain has broken something deeper within thee,

To bring forth light and discard the unnecessary.

So hold on don’t let go…

For another miracle is yet to unfold.

Poems

Thoughts

Do you take your thoughts seriously?

If so I can imagine how your life would be,

riddled with fear and anxiety

life feels like a horror film on eternity

But if you observe very carefully

They are like passing clouds floating endlessly

Dont believe them unnecessarily

For they are not what they seem to be.

Replace them with positivity

whenever it is necessary

Let them float across without touching thee

Being aware of the vicious cycle of negativity

You will see your life turnaround

to a future that is bright and unbound.

 

 

 

 

 

 

Poems

Prince Charming

Fairy tales read at bedtime

Told me of a Prince who would complete me in this lifetime

Held on to this dreams and looked out the window,

For the Prince to arrive and take away my sorrow.

Held on to the hope that my Prince would arrive,

And deliver me, from this prison of mine.

Held on to the fantasy that once the Prince enters,

I would be free from my dark tormentor.

My Prince did arrive, I thought I was finally saved

I sighed with relief that I got the love that I craved

Little did I know, that he was looking for the same

Someone to complete him – a dame who would take his name.

Disappointments took me on a quest for the question that still loomed

Why did I still feel incomplete? Am I doomed?

After all the searches the path led me back to me.

There was nothing that I lacked and I was whole and complete.

I was my savior and the answer to my questions in the end,

And my ‘Happily ever after’ began just then.

Poems

Awake?

 

Seas filled with toxic dump,

Forests slayed to make more room,

Carbon spewed through the industrial pump

Making glaciers melt fast, pronouncing doom.

Hatred running rampant with her hair billowed in the breeze

People killed in the name of glory

Nuclear tensions rising with unease

Animals lives too are grim and gory

God are you awake? don’t you see, all that is happening in our planet which makes me weep.

Please wake up God, clear this mess I plead.

In the silence God whispered

I am awake

ARE YOU?

 

 

Poems

Unity

Unity

If all the people were Hindus

Or If all the people were Christians

Or if all the people in the world were  Muslims

Promise me that there would be less blood shed.

If all the people were brown

Or if all the people were black

Or if all the people were white

Promise me that there would be no hatred.

If all the people spoke Spanish

Or if all the people spoke English

Or if all the people spoke Hindi

Promise me that there would be more understanding.

In a world which flourishes with diversity

Where everything and everyone is as unique as one can be

Why do we seek to conform  humanity to singularity?

There is beauty in our variety

So let no one take propriety

Let’s learn to rejoice in our differences with humility

and be united as one big human race family.
