Chai, chai!

Choose to erase

The negativity.

Choose to erase

The frown,

The doubt,

The grudge.

The clocks tick

Real quick,

Let go the hurt,

Choose responses

Silent or sweet

But not curt.

Though thorns do prick,

Choose not to cling too

Long to wounds and lick.

With each sip of chai,

Just one by one overwrite

All negative memories,

Recall moments light,

Jovial and bright.

Choose to overcome,

Pain, pettiness, plight


Choose cheer and delight.

Choose to add

A dash of your 'awesome',

Accept life's cup of tea

As it does come,

Chinni kabhi zyada,

Kabhi kamm.


Chinni* sugar
Kabhi* sometimes
Zyada* more
Kamm* less
With each sip of Chai, Say to yourself I aim high!
Chai ke saath biscuit ho jaaye,
Life mein aapke, chinni gul jaaye!
