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.

Just thinking...

Choice…

C

Life and death a parenthesis in eternity
What I do in between is entirely left to me.
The circumstances that I was born into
Was exactly what I needed, for my soul to evolve consciously.
But where I went from there
Was the choice bestowed unto me.
I have the power, I have the choice
To make this place hell or a place to rejoice.
I could wallow in self-pity, blame others for my problem
and cry out at the injustice done unto me;
Or use the lessons that I learnt to help some other soul
Be a beacon of hope and guide them to their true North Pole.
Spread love instead of bitterness, forgive instead of spitefulness, be grateful and not complain.
Help me God to remember these choices and to live without disdain.

Poems

A lonely life…

lonely

A lonely life I had chosen to live
On a mountain in recluse
Far away from the maddening crowd
Far away from the flawed mankind
They were selfish, arrogant and rude
In need of constant approval from the croods
Putting fake mask and pretending
Trying to act important and condescending
I hated them all so to say,
So I chose to stay far, far away.
One day my eyes caught my eyes on the mirror in front of me
I saw my SELF for the first time I felt
A being of light and love personified
Was the real me hiding inside.
Tears overflowed like rain on my cheeks
A joy exploded and I reached a new peak.
Then I saw that I was all-
Hatred and love, greed and generosity, pride and humbleness, war and peace
And that I had always the choice
To follow the path of fear or love
All along I had chosen fear
and so I had become a hater.
My eyes finally opened to the reality
I accepted myself as I was born to be
With all of lives duality.
A profound peace finally descended me
A blanket of love engulfed me.
I now walked down the hill
And embraced the first soul to my hearts fill.
For he was me and I was him with faults and imperfections
And it was finally okay with me.

Simple pleasures!

roses

Taking shallow breaths on the hospital bed,
the movie of my life runs through my head.
Of battles won and paths of temptations,
Of hatred and jealousy’s manifestations,
Of anger and fear spewed at situations.

Then comes memories of love at first sight,
Smile of my son which brought so much delight
Smell of my daughter’s shampooed hair,
the days of my motor cycling on the mountains without a care.

Simple pleasures which cannot be measured with money,
Makes me smile and my heart glow with its memories.

Then I realize the futile life I had lived,
Searching for “highs” that were short-lived.

If I had known that only memories I would take,
I would have strived on slowing down to smell the roses
and enjoy life’s simple joy for my heart’s sake!

A friend


Happy Friendship day

A stranger walked into my life

And forged a bond and made it bright.

A stranger not related by blood or birth

Cared for me during lives sorrow and mirth

A stranger who didn’t know my past

Accepted me as myself without any questions asked.

A stranger whom life brought to me at the right time.

Was the answer to my prayer during my lonely climb.

Without you ,lives burdens would have been hard to carry

Without you, laughters would have been shallow and wary.

Without you, I would have walked an empty lonely road

Without you, my life would have been like a black and white board.

Thank You my friend for showing up at the right moment

For being there and caring during all the trends.

You are the rainbow on the sky of my life.

Hope we walk together for many more miles!

Tell Me O heart…

Qheart

What do I tell of this heart…
What it wants I fathom not.
All the riches, all the food, all the clothes doesn’t seem to fill in this huge void,
The more I take in the more it gets annoyed.
After all the momentary pleasures are devoured
Asking me now what? Is this it? Is this all?
Is this life all about?
Tell me O heart.. speak to me loud and clear
What do you want?
What will lift you from this dark veil that you have dawned upon yourself?
What will bring in the cheer that you once held?
What can I do to bring that childhood happiness?
What will make me live me in this moment?
Because when I am here you want to be there;
When I am there you wish you were here.
All the things that are yet to come weighs you down
All that are dead and gone hang on like cloud.
Tell me o heart? What do you want?
Let peace fill in those holes and purpose fill my soul.
O heart …my window to my soul…speak out loud and clear
So I can live my life without regret and fear.

Don’t Quit!

When things go wrong, as they sometimes will
When the road you are trudging seems all uphill,

When the funds are low and debts are high,
and you want to smile but have to sigh

When care is pressing you down a bit,
Rest if you must – but don’t you QUIT!

Life is queer with its twists and turns
As everyone of us sometimes learns,
and many a failure turns about
When he might have won had he stuck it out

Don’t give up though the phase seems slow –
You might succeed with another blow…

Success is failure turned inside out
The silver tint of the clouds of doubt –
and you can never tell how close you are.
It many be near when it seems afar;
So stick to the fight when you are hardest hit
Its when things get worse that you mustn’t QUIT!

Hope

worker_spade

I build cements wall for the houses
But my house stands with tin sheets
I mend and shine shoes
But my slippers are worn out thin
I harvest crops for the world to eat
But my kids go to bed hungry
I wash your clothes
But I am scared if I wash mine it will shred
Who do I question about my status?
If there is one with answers let me know
I am the worker bee and my life is being squeezed out of me
Cause I have been crushed and discarded by the society that uses me.
So save me and give me hope that a
better tomorrow awaits me.
For I need to carry my frail legs to work,
Believing someone is looking out for me too.
