I believe, I trust

Success is the result of our genuine talent, sincere effort and strong decision to not give up before we achieve our goal. Yes. But then how is it that only few succeed while many do not, despite of the talent, effort and determination? We do reflect- oh the timing was not right, or some strokeContinue reading “I believe, I trust”

Have faith

Watch flowers bloom,Listen the birds sing,Bump into bunnies Scurrying and hurrying,Dancing and hip-hopping.Rise and shine, With love and faith,Of all the divine,And in God’s trustMay your soul be refined,And in blessed love,May you remain entwined.

Closure

At some point of time,Its just time,To leave a job,To leave a relation,To leave a nation.Some by choice,So we may rejoice,While some endings Just are meant,Pre written, predestined.Perhaps a reluctant exit,A heart-heavy bye bye,At crossroads, we arrive.Eyes we may half close,Refusing to face The uncertainty upfront,Though questions chase,No answers to hunt.Then tears escape,And sighs releaseLipsContinue reading “Closure”

Migrant

The winged explorer,The sky-migrant,The global gliderThe borderless flyerThe bird Tell me, Do you look backTo your first nest,To your first branch,To your first tree?Do you only fly onward,Do you only move forward,Never glance backward,Never sigh,Just fly high?Me too, a migrant,Between cities,Between tongues,Between thoughts,Between my originAnd final destination, Here and now, on earth,Only pursuing Peace isContinue reading “Migrant”

Hope

Hope:It’s a sweet nothingYet just about All you’ve got, It’s everything.Hope heals The heavinessOf bitter reality, It is so coolingOn a life burning.Hope enables one,To go on, to cope.Life’s not alwaysA walk on tight-rope,Hope revives And reminds;’Believe, Joy too, Lies withinLife’s scope.

So what now?

Let’s say,What you did dream,What you did chase,Was a slip between The cup and the lip.You may sulk, screamPine for what is not,Won’t let it just go,Oscillate to and fro-Pendulum-like, movingWithout progressing.As you observe,Surely you know,Back and forth, Forth and back,Ask your self,What in this lifeDo you really lack?

Only

Only when tears overflow,We regain our balance,And then does peace glow.Only when fears We do face and overcome,Does living lifeSeem worthy and awesome.Despite the impediments Continue your journey onward.Despite the highs and lows, Our gears we quickly change,We drive and move forwardThrough Life’s Complete and inescapable ‘Good and bad’ range.Let go the tears.Face your fears.ChangeContinue reading “Only”

Heard?

Hush,Heard the whisper?A sound softer,But so much sweeter?Hush,Heard the whisper?A sound quieter,Yet so much truer?Hush,Heard the whisper?A sound fainter,Yet so much wiser?Hush,Hear the whisper:A sound, a murmur,That’s Softer,Clearer, Fainter,Sweeter,Truer,Wiser.Listen to your heart’s whispers today.

Heartfelt

All that is true to self is heartfelt. All that is heartfelt is sensitive. All that is sensitive is caring. All that is caring is loving. All that is loving is gentle. All that is gentle is delicate. Like the breeze Gently touches The soft petals And makes the flower sway, Lead a heartfelt GentleContinue reading “Heartfelt”

Brought nothing, lost nothing

Born empty handed, Leave empty-handed. Live with love and light. When here we landed,Weren’t you and me,Both born empty-handed?Then let’s live life,Without hate and strife,Unassuming and light,Choosing love: Not might over right,Decide none to exploit.Lets feel from The depths of our heart,And reach great heightsThrough our open, Un-burdened, mind,Always to ourself remind:To keep our thoughts,Continue reading “Brought nothing, lost nothing”

Disentangle

From little to more,We are entangledIn daily lifeOur mind and heartTired and mangled.Take a deep breath,Now with force exhale,And let it all go,Repeat again and again,Till you knowThe heaviness is gone,You don’t feel Overwhelmed and low.To yourself Just remind,To:Disentangle, Distance,Detach.You can’t alwaysYourself grind,Free yourself From burdens,From ‘Musts’ And ‘Shoulds’Do not your mind, So strictly bind.LifeContinue reading “Disentangle”

Being just me

No I didn’t prioritize Folding clothesCookingHouse keeping.I wrote verses.My apologiesFor fresh fruit,Salad mealsAnd just washedUnfolded, unironedClothes.I deliberatedOver lyrics,Rhythm, rhymesAnd word tricks.To sweetly suggest Being a woman I can multi-taskComes with a risk:I need my rest, My ‘me-time’,To hum my rhyme.What I can,What I will,What I won’tI decide,You don’t.

What if…

If we’ve lostA near and dear one, May we find withinPatience and solace,That they’re restingIn a better placeWhat if Death was for themRest and relief?They could not bearThe suffering, Take not the pain,So left this lifeAnd the soul reached A beautiful realm Much greater, higher.Let us perhapsHold this belief,To lessen the sorrow,A comforting thoughtMaybe weContinue reading “What if…”

I walk

I walk. Sometimes, I walk away From an uninvited Walk-in visiting memory, Sometimes, I walk To reach nowhere, But to walk away From the need To reach Somewhere. Sometimes I walk Away from expectations Unreasonable, stifling. I walk Miles and miles. Sometimes I walk To sort out My own journey, Meet my thoughts halfway, QuestionContinue reading “I walk”

Compassion

Halt a moment,Stop! Save a child,Listen to the lament,Life for love is meant,Rise above discontent,Revise your intent,And choose to be,The One to helpTo nurture and care, And let each of usTo the ‘other’Be truly’God-sent’.

Reflect calmly to find your balance

Meditate to findThe balanceBe mindfulOf how you feelKeep your mind Very still.Meditate to de-stress,To worries release,To realign,Receive peaceAnd reconnectWith the Divine.

Draw the line.

Life is not about just having. Life is more about living. Life is more about experiencing rather than accumulating. Money is no doubt very essential for enabling empowerment. There are no two things about it. But to live less in order to earn more and just have more at the cost of too much stressContinue reading “Draw the line.”

One day at a time

When in life,There’s no rhythmThere’s no rhymeNo laughters chime,A tear glistensYou can’t even sigh,Your breath feels muffledEach time you inhaledIt felt like an effortAnd you struggled,At that juncture,When every nerveYou feel will rupture,Just be in silent pleaReally pray to the Divineand sense the silenceAnd hear the quiet,Say to self,One day, at a time.

Shifting your thoughts

It has been a challenge and quite some watchfulness was required in becoming an observer of my thoughts and detaching from them and choosing which ones were unwelcome. But the effort has been worthwhile. I am sure with time, we can change the thoughts and see the extraordinary effect of the shift within and without!
