I still think of you.
I still yearn for you.
I still hold so much respect & love for you in my heart.
Adek rindu sangat dekat mama.
Semoga mama tenang di sana, mama.
In the light
Of her own darkness
And that of the night's
The restless rain
Belittling her strength
As do they
Who sit in judgment
Because she exists
So she alone
Must come to terms
With their poured out torment
Without letting it
Define her. JD

Funny as it may sound, but buying cigarettes can teach you some lessons. No, I'm not talking about cancer or how tobacco can make you go blind. I'm talking about retrospection while talking to the woman who owns the convenience store where you buy your poison from.
I realised it isn't the tobacco I'm addicted to because I still had a few cigarettes left when I last visited the store. It's the conversation I have with her that's my poison.
“I am flying! “, she screamed.
She was free. Therefore she knew that the world would be the perfect playground.
Smart. Beautiful. Independent.
She was everything she always wanted to be.
A woman standing in her own truth.
First time when my heart started beating it was with you...
The moment I felt any pain it was realised by you...
In the matter of stress or test I was comforted and motivated by you...
No matter Anything I do... I can't be like you...
For me you're the first and most lovable treasure....
Whose Love For Me I Can't Measure...
Taking Care Momma
Time has went by and now we've switched roles
Having me at 16 and dealing with life's blows
To me there was no problem you couldn't solve
Through my growing up you were always involved
Now you're getting older i must take care of you
You've always had an independent point of view
There's nothing wrong with me paying you back
This is the story of our lives so sit back and relax
A baby cant help the fact that their dependant
Now the tables have turned dont be offended
This is a time for me to show my appreciation
You fed me and made sure i got an education
I dont remember going to bed with any worries
You taught us to pray and read our bible stories
Anything you need i...
The clock kept ticking, the time kept passing. But nothing changed. She stared at the clock as it did what it was created to do. Showing her that time was passing. Valuable time, that she did not know what to do with. She looked around. The breeze had not grazed the curtains for a month now. The windows were shut like her heart. The darkness of the room did not measure upto the gloom filled in her eyes.
The clock kept ticking, the time kept passing. But something had to change. She took out her phone, saw his pic for one last time, saw their pic for the umpteenth time. She used to smile. She wanted to smile. Fidelity was not his virtue. But who lost? She opened up the camera and gave hersel...
An Ode to Her
May Her voice forever speak
Endless, spill words honey sweet between
Rose Petals, a dessert luxurious
Intellectual, sparks make fireworks
Turn, the air vibrant with color.
May Her graceful body always move
Elegant, hips swaying to a beat
Relishing, gleeful in the musical
Influence, hands reach for me
Touch, a worn paperback soft.
May Her eyes continue to smile
Expressive, sky blues alight
Rife with joy, laughter, yet
Infinite, Iridescent irises
Twinkle, holding a universe.
May Her wonderful person
Eternally, live in a paradise
Running, through ripened orchards
In silvery strands of moonlight, tap my shoulder an...
A cool evening, Sevenish.
A break in Tradition.
My Darling Gorgeous' Mother,
Soon an old familiar forgotten feeling will return. Unbidden, unwanted; once the feverish activity ceases, it will be you, yourself, and the television echoing from the bare walls, the dogs asleep at your feet.
Depression, melancholy, wet tears may well up, even spill from your eyes. It will seem that what you have left, is all you will ever have. It just gets smaller and smaller, each momento chosen over others now lost to the dust bin. Boxes of your last life still unpacked, brown memories looking for their new home...
You doubt yourself, you wonder Where?, Why?, How?, Was it me?, Not again....
At 19 I met you and our relationship was completely different than my parents. It was healthy. At 6 months I started to feel that you weren't the one for me. At 20 you proposed. I said yes. The anxiety followed. The nagging feeling lingered. I kept telling myself "He's a great guy. You're being shallow.". When I was 21 we wed. The anxiety became a haunting monster. At 22 I left. I look back and see a young woman detached from her own voice. I see a woman settling. Today, I see a woman so brave. A woman brave enough to leave comfort in search of what she truly deserves.
Be not weak woman...you are gates of the strength and gates of the soul.
My Dear sister,
I still remember those old days being kids,
On festivals, it was a #KitchenSet always brought for my sister and I got the Gun,
On her birthdays, She used to get that #BridalDoll and Cricket bat for me...
She questioned my Dad always, that Why she couldn't make it to any Convent or #EnglishMedium school.
When she asked to play outside with us or to go to school tours, she was answered #TheyareBoys.
When she asked to join Computer classes, she was forced to join #CookingClasses instead.
She wished to pursue MBA, she found herself in a girls college enrolled into M.Sc (#HomeScience)
Even with a Gold in her PG, when she asked that she wants to do a job, to do...
¡Cuidado! Porque ella es peligrosa...peligrosa para los que no entienden la complejidad de
una mujer, porque defiende lo que más ama, porque desafía las normas de como debe vestir una "dama" , porque ante las injusticias jamás se calla, alza la voz para que el mundo la escuche y sólo la baja para decir al oído en forma de secreto lo mucho que te quiere, peligrosa porque le gusta estudiar, prepararse, porque no le gusta depender de nadie, amante de los viajes y de los libros y eso para algunos es sinónimo de peligro, desde hace varios patanes atrás que desconfía del amor, desde hace varias falsas amistades atrás que desconfía de las personas.
Es valiente, tenaz, orgullosa, caprichosa, ...
Aaj maine tumnhe dekha.
Uss andhere mein jisne mujhe
yeh quabool karne par majboor kar diya,
ki tum har jagah ho.
Tumhe dekha maine uss aandhi mein
Jo mere baalon se khelti hui guzar gayi,
mano jaise tum hi ho, mere kareeb .
Tumhe dekha maine uss barish ki boond mein;
Jo mujhe sehlate hue mujhe mein sama gayi
Mano tum mujh se fir ek ho gayi ho.
Aaj maine tumhe fir se dekha
Unn sari cheezon mein jo haseen hain.
Tumhe dekha maine, aur qasm khud ki
Main nazrein nahi hata payi
She gathered up her luggage and took one last look around.
Years she spent in this place, investing mentally, physically, financially,emotionally, and spiritually.
Even now, she goes breathless when she recalls the disgraceful disservice of her employer, and the shades of death she endured from her ex husband.
She couldn't stay in that memory bank long ; her therapist has worked hard to help her control the traumatic aftermath.
Today, was it...
The new beginning she'd been sitting, wishing, hoping, and praying for, for such a long time. She has been offered a Newspaper Editor position in Miami, FL, and she accepted it.
Florida was miles and miles away from Amsterdam, but Gretchen cou...
Mother - A pillar
Of the house
Of our lives
Of the world
Having you is not recognised
When you aren't there we struggle
In all the troubles
You protect us
You shield us
You fight us
Yet you love us
Unexplained unimaginable pain you go through
Yet you smile when u see us
A part of you we are
Build from your flesh n blood
Mother is not just flesh n blood
You are a feeling we love
The care you do and the moments of solitude
We come to you in all disputes
You are our ears and you are our hands
You guide us through life
We all bend In front of you
to seek your blessings and to seek for help
For your words are wiser than the whole world
For your care is purer than any
For you are t...
Something soothing touched my heart
Something relaxing touched my hairs..
Something calm closed my eyes ..
Something filling contended my spine..
Something soulful blessed my stars.
N so I recalled.. M in my mom's arm
Standing in front of you everyday
I look into your eyes
Wanting to hold you in my arms
Asking for your permission
The glitter of your eyes
Are now tears of mine
No hint of recognition
I was busy in my life
I didn't realise
M losing something so important
Without whom I can't survive
Unanswered calls, unheard messages
Now I play them on repeat
Just to hear
The love in your voice
The care you shared
Oh my mother m in despair
Please come back I pray the lord
I promise I will be different
I won't be the same
I now know this
How important you are
What I have missed
All those years
Hoping and needing your one single touch
Maybe you remember me
For at least one insta...
मेरी हर दुआ संग तेरे हर घड़ी
जाने कैसे बन गई ये रातें अब नई
तुझसे और क्या अब मांगु मैं भला
एक आंखें भर गई सों बातें मरतबा
तेरी हर कमी है यादें अब यहां
तुझसे और क्या अब चाहूं मैं भला
तुजको मांग के मैं रोया हूं सदा
तेरी बाहों में हूं सुलझा तेरी आंखों मैं बसा
मैं तो तेरा हूं तू मेरी मरतबा
तुझसे और क्या अब बोलूं हरदफा
मेरी हर दुआ संग तेरे हर घड़ी हर जगह ।
