If there is a blessing to all this noise around me, it makes the silence and the beautiful mysteries in the sky that much more noteworthy.

I found myself looking
at the golden sun this morning
thinking of how warm it is
This never ending source
of faith in living

I found myself standing
in the crowd yelling and screaming
Who doesn't realize the crimson sun
was ready to be a gift of love
for everyone who was celebrating
the end of the day

I found myself with closed eyes
seeing only the blue sun before me
I knew it was a sign of hope
which was nowhere to be found
using just human eyes

And I wondered then and there
Have I felt it in my chest
Or was it just the pain
                                             ~Trot

PEACE ON EARTH

A Whole New World

I see trees of green and skies of blue,
Clouded by destruction and the smells of fossil fuel
I sit here asking myself "What's an individual to do?"
I wonder if the solution to my species is to not even exist at all.
I stop myself...
Those thoughts are negative.
Negativity fuels fear, Fear fuels depression, depression leads to hatred. Hatred of the very vessel keeping us alive.
What one four letter word could do to keep us alive.
Hope.
Hope is what drives the masses to stand for what they believe in.
Hope is what motivates change in a world heading toward inevitable destruction.
Stop.
There goes my mind again losing its grip on hope. Grip on hope that we ...

A Soul had a wings to fly
When it started flying humanity opposed
Humanity divided itself in to multiple races which lead to collisions
Because of this collisions the souls wings were slaughtered.
Now the soul is alone waiting for its day to fly to reach its dream.

A soul had a wings to fly!!

In your shallow stare
I see a dark and stormy
Path I can't travel

      But in your breath,
      I hear forever
      Calling out to me
      Begging me
      Not to go;
      My heart gives in
      Because it cannot lie,
      So.....

             Again,
             In trepidation
             Mixed with hope
             I tell myself to
             Stay.                             JD

I saw America walking down the dark alleys of a new city.
I saw America exiled to another yet virgin land of her own choice.
I saw America, reincarnated, loved and unbetrayed.
How beautiful she looked in her yellow summer dress, the beauty of a phoenix, a solar power summoned at dawn.

Weren’t it for the faith  I had, I would have foresaken His love for me, the only blanket of true affection I was left with when everybody left me in the woods last winter.

I have Sola Fide inked on my skin for a reason. I rose from the ashes of my own failures and panic Attacks and stood up, breathing in the morning fresh air.

He is the only therapist who wouldn’t judge me, the one who would knock on my door and offer therapy to a girl as helpless as myself.

I still struggle up to this day alright, but a new dawn would wash all my tears and lick all my wounds and kiss me on the cheek .

"Your BODY can stand ALMOST ANYTHING,
it's your MIND you have to CONVINCE"
There's nothing limiting you, but yourself with that tiny little voice of fear in your head! So, convince your mind, and you're halfway there to achieving your goals!

Waiting for the sun
I lay still
Breath by breath
Holding my heart
Calming my mind
Seeking a hand
All alone
Hurt by feelings
Scarred by emotions
Destroyed by people
Who are now gone
Past my fears
Drowned in tears
I saw it all
With my bleeding eyes
How the darkness won
While I lay
Still and cold
Waiting for the sun

Humanity has collapsed,
All that is there is hatred,
In words, in papers ,in news,
In posts, videos and views.
The cruelty in judgement,
Turning errors into crimes,
Not giving a damn not a dime!
Brutality is the new concept,
Violence is the new nature.
We are painting a picture
With blood stains and torn skins,
Maybe the time has come, to pay for our sins.
Turning against each other
Is the last nail in the coffin.
So we prey on the weaks
And humiliate the supposed inferiors,
We choke the rebels and
Hang the good warriors
We seize the control and
Decide their last breaths.
As our sensitively shreds!
Venom in the jokes,
Disgust in the voices,
Wrong and wrong
Are the only choices.
Nature has ...

The ground
beneath
collapses,
I rise above.

The sky
darkens,
fumes suffocate,
I fly further.

Mountain peak
claws apart
my wings,
I reach for the wind.

I do not fear
The wind,
I admire it's vastness
I become one.

I breathe
Life returns
I live
stronger than before !

Hang on, the Tiger's still lurking beneath!
------------------------------------------------------
I don't know about others, but I can say this for myself, the amount of time the situation is providing for us to introspect and contenmplate is just phenomenal. It was one such contemplative evenings, yesterday, when a question from my beloved led from one thought to another, and I ended up telling her a story narrated long back to me by my grandfather. Its his story, a true incident:

My grandfather was a school teacher, and his workplace was about 32 km's ~ 20 miles away from our village. He used to start to the School on Monday morning and return back on Saturday mid day. He was mostly a...

I stand tall
Not because
I have done it.

Because,
I believe i will.

I am proud
Not because
of my feat.

Because,
I have faith to carry on.

I pat myself
Not as a praise.

Because,
I have resurrected hope.

I have galloped past
The storm,
Emerged out of darkness,
Picked pace every time
Faster than before i fell.

I am
Blessed with the strength
To withstand,
To keep going
come what may,

Towards
The finishing line
I have drawn for myself.

To end the battle
within me,
in my terms.

Sweet decadent darkness,
Creeping in through the wavering crevices.

The sun filled happiness kissing my lips,
Its fingers playing through my hair.

The interwoven tango with which the two play.
Fighting for who takes the  lead!

Spinning on an ever turning turn table.

Back and forth.
Up and down.
Round and round.

Who shall take the lead?

How can I write about hope
When I don’t have any?
I will make up words
That sound pretty
And cry fake tears of joy.
I will pretend hopefulness
And await happiness
That neigh will come.

Five weeks now we have been in lockdown

The world is on hold whilst it heals itself, unfortunately at the sacrifice of thousands of innocent lives!

Life for us all, is changed beyond believe!

But appreciation, respect, kindness & love has increased infinitely, it is a shame it has taken a pandemic to fill the world with this but it’s much needed!!

DEEPLY LOVED
