My home is the world
My home is where
I have a feeling of warmth
Home is an area
With an oh so cool breeze

Home is not just my house
But any place,
I fall in love with.

Travel allows me,
To have multiple places
That I now call home.

I've slipped through some cracks,
I haven't been shining vibrantly.
I've been dealing with some issues
And I need silence now.

I need to focus,
Regain my strength.
I may be down now,
But I refuse to be written off.

I'm on the floor today
But someday soon,
When I'm mighty and strong,
I'll fly, high above clouds!

RUN!

Her only crime was loving him,
And he did love her too.
Till his last breath, he loved her,
He even wrote her a note,
As he lay there, bleeding on the road.

She was made to break her bangles.
The vermilion on her forehead,
Her pretty pink sarees,
Were taken away from her.

It's time we stop this stigma,
Accident victims need to be attended to.
Widows may have lost their husbands,
But they are as human as me and you.

Widows in some parts of rural India are still treated like filth. Their clothes are taken away, the sindoor on their forehead is rubbed off.
People are reluctant to attend to accident victims for the fear of being persecuted.
This needs to stop, for us to progress into...

I've fallen into a hole
It's dark all around
I'm scared and
Uncomfortable here.

But I know,
I won't be here long.
Because I'm a fighter
And I don't give up.

I'll climb up
And soon,
I'll see the sun.

We used to be together,
But now, she's moved away.

I used to talk to her everyday,
But now, things have changed.

We used to fight over trivial issues,
But now, she's unavailable in the day.

I used to love only her,
But now, I love her husband as well.

I used to wait for her, to come home,
But now, I'm awaiting to meet,
The baby, growing in her womb.

Sister's are a real treasure
That you love always,
But value, once she's away.

He worked long hours at the mine
His nails were dirty
His jeans tattered and torn.

She had plenty of money
Wore Gucci skirts
For her nails, French Manicure.

A man who lived on the streets
Fell in love, with the woman
Who's compound had paved roads.

Her grace and poise won his heart
When she served him food,
At a soup kitchen, on Sunday.

He finished his meal,
Went up to her
And shook her hand.

Thanked her for sponsoring
And serving them,
The food that they'd had.

They fell in love with her
Because she gave them all,
Love straight from her heart.

The sky is overcast
The weather gloomy

The mind wanders aimlessly
Because things are bad
And I feel lonely.

The mind however is under my control
Unlike weather, that nature plays with.

So I tell my mind, to be less melancholic
And imagine a future, where things,
Are more to my liking.

Use the power of hope,
To climb out the pit I'm in
And be in a place,
Where things are clear and sunny!

She appeared old and frail
The last time, I went to say 'Hey!'.
But her spirit, it seems
Had NEVER AGED.

A warm smile appeared on her face,
And as always, offered me an Orange.

The sun was about to set
And her face was bathed
In a glow, orange.

An opportune moment,
It was the right time,
So I got down on one knee
And she said yes.

She never got to meet her,
But I'm glad, that she was there.

A LITTLE INSIGHT :)👇

The challenge for today was to use orange in a poem/ quote.
I began to think about the fruit, Orange and this led me on a train of thought.

He saw her at a bar
And used a pickup line
She started to laugh
She asked him,
You wanna go,
Up to my room?

He said sure,
I can't keep my hands of you
But I got to go to the restroom
I'll meet you on top.

He went to the pharma
Picked up some protection
Before heading up.

It's good to have fun
But it's important to be safe
She appreciated him for that.

It's important to be healthy
Even more than having fun
When you realise this
You protect yourself.

Good to be aware. Use protection everytime.

I remember Miss Jenny,
Using the blackboard to draw shapes.

My homework was to place 100 dots
And make 50 circles in my notebook.

I used to hate it,
When I had to take down
The words written on the board.

A few years later, when,
They started to dictate sentences
That needed to go into my book.
I began to miss the board

A place, where things would stay
Until they were erased,
To make way, for more words.

A board I used to dread,
Became one, I came to crave.

Life has come a full circle
These days I use
White chalk on the blackboard,
To impart in my students
The knowledge that lies in my head.

This man from Chennai
Walked barefoot to Kashi
To receive the Lord's blessings.

Another, walked across the street
And left his slippers outside
Before proceeding to meet,
The lord, waiting inside.

At Kashi, he was blessed to see
The Arti on the banks of The Ganges,
Felt peace within, as he flew to Chennai.

The other man, finished his darshan
Stepped outside, with a calm mind
But lost his wits when he found,
That his slippers were missing.

2 men, both found peace,
For one it was lasting,
The other, lost it.

Ooohhh he kicked again!
Dear baby of mine,
Right now you're in me
I'm able to feel you move
And send you, the nutrients you need.

Oh! Silly baby, don't you worry,
About how this world's going to be
Mommy's gonna be there for you
And take care of your every need.

I can't wait to know how it feels
When you hold my finger tightly,
When you nurse at my breast
And draw milk from me.

Just come out, on time tomorrow,
I can't wait to Love you,
Once you're outside me.
My dear baby, I'm waiting eagerly.

A mother's love is pure and divine. She cares for little, other than her baby's well being and health.
A huge shout out to all of our great mothers. For holding us inside for months on end a...

WHAT'S REQUIRED.

There were days back then,
Before I got my spectacles,
Way back, in 5th standard.

When in my notebook I'd write down
Not what was on the board
But what I held within my mind.

I did whatever I liked
Without looking at the cost
Or at the damage it cause inside

Drank alcohol on the weekends
On the weekdays, cigarettes sufficed.

A glutton for burgers, with extra cheese
Never bothered about the excessive fat
Or calories the soda had.  

One day, my parents were called
And pointed out, the spelling errors.

My parents rushed to the hospital
When they found out, about my cardiac attack.

I started wearing spectacles in 5th grade
Started to write not what I liked
But what...

BUILDING BLOCKS.
So many nights
I've already spent
At your house in Delhi.

Every morning, however
I'd get back to my hotel
Get refreshed and then,
Rush to my office.

But today, you told me to stay
And a toothbrush was awaiting
On the counter next to your sink.

These little advances,
In our relationship
Bring with them
A hope for tomorrow,
I see my future is being built.

I don't care
If I never find
A special someone

But if I do like a girl
And it's the same for her
I'd want something, Long Term.

Because attraction is common
I've witnessed it,
Being a hormone riddled teenager
Now I'm not a kid, any longer

Physical Relationships
Work out great, for a lot of people.
But me, I'm looking to MAKE LOVE

Having sex, is a small part of life
But it tends to occupy
A large amount of brain matter

Thoughts and ideas swarm my head
What should just be concepts
Turn into realities instead.
But time is unforgiving
And life, unpredictable

If all other aspects
Of the relationship
Are ignored
And the only reason to meet
Is because of the way
Our bodies feel.

We beco...

As a child, my perception was limited
I always viewed the world
Lit in the brightest colours.
During the day, I attended school
And in daylight, I thrived.

At night, I had to complete
The homework that I'd be given
And the worst part of my day,
Was turning off the lights and
Saying goodnight to my parents.

Because that was when, EVERYTHING,
Would go dark completely.
All colours would vanish
And black is all I'd see;
It really was scary.

As I got older, darkness,
Began appearing, so much more often.

Some great memories have happened
When in complete darkness,
We have been shrouded.

And these experiences they taught me
That darkness isn't only black
There's tiny rays of light
That m...

As I listen to great songs,
In my head, patterns start to form.
The kind of music, matters not
Where it's Rock, pop or hip hop

Patterns are what I find
When I close my eyes.

As I perform, my music, live.
I hope that you'll forge,
Shapes in your brain.

I hope that as you listen,
You find patterns in my music.

This way ideas,
Will keep flowing.

One day, I dream,
That as I groove, to your music,
I'll form patterns and derive hope.

They might not do the best work
But the people on top
Get all the attention.

Once you go high up,
You forget how the bottom was.

But it's important to remember
That passion you felt
The pain you overcame
To reach the top rung.

Right now,
With you by my side
I have in me,
Joy and happiness.

I have within, all the bright colours
That a rainbow carries. 🌈

But this isn't how, it's always been
Before I met you, Black and White
Were all the colours
That existed in me.

*Home*
I lay on my bed
Resting my head
On 2 pillows
While 1 suffices

I lie contemplating
The time that's passed
The experiences so profound
That have just occurred

For when you travel, you see
You move around
And you watch
Your soul dance

You feel light and giddy
Experience joy and freedom
For your shackles, they break free
Your little world grows

To now include the magnitude
Of this large world
Your home becomes larger
And ceases to be, just another building

The more you see
The longer you stay out
The larger
Your world continues to grow
And then one day

You come back
To a street that's too familiar
To a building on a lane
A place you call, your house

But the feeling is strange
As li...

I wrote a few poems
A couple of compliments,
I received for it,
And suddenly, I felt invincible.

I started to feel,
Like the only person
In the entire world
That could write these beauties.

Today I was told,
By someone, I dislike
That I was no one great
A dozen others, they could find
With poems better than mine.

This fickle mind of mine
Decided that I needed more
Started to feel terrible
That, little talent, I have.

Started comparing myself,
To people all round
And found them all
To be better, than who I am.

Everywhere I saw,
And in everything they did
I found myself lacking
The skills they were possessing.

Extreme pain I'd feel,
Constantly berating myself.
So I Decided,

TEARS AREN'T BAD.
A few tears
Are well and good
They help drain,
The tank inside.

A tank filled with love,
Rife with emotions.
So shed a few tears,
Drain the tank.

Let love come pouring
From the heart
Through your eyes
Let it flow.

Some memories have a taint,
Let them go away
Replace them, with those,
Filled with gaiety and joy.

We remain together and stand tight
For we aren't movie stars
That grow rich overnight
Or Fall in Love at first sight

We are the Dreamers
We don't give up
We stand with one another
We put up a fight

Time takes its toll
But eventually
Things are set right

There's a reason
I cuddle with her every night,
Because every time I see her,
Love is the only emotion I have, inside.  

And despite all our troubles
I'll keep on loving you
For I may not be a movie star
But you really are,
A heroine in my eyes. ❤

Now as an adult,
The games have moved
From my TV and gaming console
To politics at office.

The Princess, in Super Mario.
