You've never given me any trouble
You've always given me, only love.
You've never asked me for much
You've given me, whatever I required.
You've never judged me
You've always ensured
That I present myself
In the best possible manner.
Thanks for allowing me to be myself.
Thanks for being my best friend, LOVER :)
All I need is company
All I want is someone
I can open my heart up to.
All I need is empathy
All I want is to be heard
And not be judged by you.
All I need is love
All I want is love
All I need is to be loved
All I want is to love you.
Someday I want to climb high
High up the mountains,
That seem to touch the sky.
Be a part of a range, so large,
That I'll finally understand, how tiny I am.
In a small tent I'll stay
Where people won't tell me,
What I should wear
And how I should behave.
They won't care for my qualifications
All they'll want to see, is a smile on my face.
I'll forget about the frivolities
And focus only on
What really matters to me.
The people here, are living at an altitude,
That's higher than the height,
Of the clouds, floating in the sky.
Here, possessions don't matter,
Because the sole focus is happiness
And being satisfied with what you have.
For millennia, enlightened men
Have made the mo...
Always got an eye on the future
Making sure I'm on the right path
So that I'll be a successful man, one day.
Saving every rupee I can
To accumulate enough
So eventually, I'll be able,
To afford a nice place.
Reaching out and making contact
With people I've fallen out of touch with
So I'll have a vibrant circle of friends.
Somewhere along the line, I realise
I've forgotten about the present moment
Today I take a pledge, I will work
Towards the goals I've set.
But I won't deny myself
Of the pleasures life offers
SO, I will be sure,
To have some fun today!!!
I walk with my head held high,
As the sun rises from below me
I'm not afraid of my past
The night lies behind.
I don't care, if you insult me
Feel free to make fun of me
Because you only see the darkness
In the shadow, my form is casting.
But very soon, it'll be noon
And in the gleaming sun,
I will be walking.
My Shadow will be small,
As I will be stand tall.
My past won't matter then,
I'll be over it, I will be shining.
There's this large wall up ahead,
Its too large to scale, I'm afraid.
I don't want to be here,
I just want to get ahead.
My mind is racing,
My fears run deep.
I can't see what's beyond,
I've lost the path I was on.
After a while of fighting with myself,
Of desperately trying to move forward.
I say to myself, no matter what happens,
I'll overcome the obstacle I see in front.
I free myself of old dreams,
Take my mind off downtrodden roads.
I chose a new path to go to down on,
To a region that's not obsolete or old
Wild is my spirit and my destination,
A forest filled with pine cones,
A place with tall trees and new hopes.
"A Place Where you Feel Home"
A place you come to,
After a long day.
A place where,
Your words hold weight.
A place where,
Judgements aren't made.
A place you come to
And make your problems go away.
There isn't a storm
But the wind is crazy
There isn't much breeze
The night is eerie
No matter what is happening
Nature is so very interesting.
The world puts me in a box
Tells me what I'm good at
And restricts my activity, per that.
But I'm not just a commerce graduate
Nor am I interested only in maths,
I like accounts but I'm also into prose.
I Don't Care, what the world thinks or
There's very little money in poetry
I'll do what I like, please myself too.
The world may revolve around capital
But emotions and feelings, don't die easy.
Money is essential for your well being
But pursuing your passion
Is what makes you happy.
I hope, all of you enjoy what I write
Because I really do like, the letters that you guys post here.
Cheers and Happy Holidays :)
In the cold wind I came riding
Without a jacket or a scarf
Covering my neck or my ears.
The chilly wind froze my body
But my spirit was frigid earlier too.
I found out today,
She's left me for someone else
So now I'm at home, all alone.
The fire warms my body
But my heart is frozen solid
And it won't heal anytime soon.
Cheating is very very hard to deal with especially when everyone else, all round is merry and celebrating.
So for everyone who's in a stable relationship, it's time to celebrate our partners, this festive season.
It's cold in Bangalore,
My mum asks me to wear a sweater.
She dictates an order,
And I comply with her directives.
I grab my keys,
Walk out the front door.
As I proceed towards the east,
I see many people, sleeping on the streets.
Without a layer of wool or cotton,
Harsh elements, are upon their bare skin.
I crib all day, want to own more things,
But I am truly happy,
To have the basic necessities, today.
In this season of joy and celebration
I feel truly blessed to have the basic necessities and so much more.
Close your eyes and you'll witness
The creativity that every human possess.
Each of us is just a speck
In this vast universe,
The Milky Way travels in.
Our existence is tiny
But there's a magnanimity
In every being, that is living.
The shared consciousness,
Of the seas and the trees
Exists within this body we reside in.
The Milky way speeds along
At over a million miles an hour.
The solar system is a little slower
It takes a couple hours.
In these vast cosmic spaces
A tiny planet, we call the earth is present.
On its crust, we go about our business.
Existence is vast and even though we're small
We have a purpose, for which we're here on Earth.
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!
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
But I know,
I won't be here long.
Because I'm a fighter
And I don't give up.
I'll climb up
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.
Mom’s and Grandma’s are forever asking us if we have had enough to eat and make sweets on special occasions. I though of a frail o...
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.
It's easy to write off faith and call yourself an atheist. But the fact of the matter is that, BILLIONS of people across the world believe in Shiva, Allah, Jesus and gods with inn...
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...
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
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
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
And the only reason to meet
Is because of the way
Our bodies feel.
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
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.
