    Stay or Go

    Have you ever lost yourself?
    And the found that self back again?
    How about finding someone you don't know?
    Unsure if this new you,
    Needs to stay or needs to go?

    I'm not perfect and I don't want to be

    Life isn't always glitter and glory
    But I'll write my own story
    Free, limitless, messed and funky
    Sometimes chilled and at times grumpy
    No matter what, I'm me and
    I'm not perfect and I don't want to be

    Sometimes I'm scared and at times lonely
    But optimism is my attitude and that's only
    I speak my mind and I'm self assured
    Yes I make mistakes and I'm flawed
    If being flawless is perfection then
    I'm not perfect and I don't want to be

    Spirit of Tree

    Today ...
    I found happiness
    In a swaying tree
    Whose branches moved
    with currents of the wind

    Wise spirit of tree
    Asked me to let go
    be one with the music

    Let the song of life flow

    There is magick in nature
    For those who can see
    There is healing for pain

    Hidden deep beneath

    Open your heart
    Hear the whispering wind
    Be one with the magick
    Let the song of your soul
    Echo in your Dancing

    [[Novice]]

    [Chased that pursuit
    to become that desirable star
    in everyone's eyes;

    Strolled myself miles and miles
    to see myself
    lost in the path full of lies.

    What I am,
    and what I want to do,
    I don't know what's my value and price.

    Cried all night
    till I fall asleep
    to make myself feel nice.

    While folks much younger than I
    are so sorted in the ladder of success
    and they continue to rise;

    And now, I get up after losing
    over one third of my life
    beginning again as a N-O-V-ICE.]

    Why is there an 'if' in Life
    Is it to warn you of uncertainty in rife
    Or to let you celebrate the chances you get
    So you don't miss them and regret.

    APOPLECTIC APOCALYPSE

    The deserted streets, brimming crematoriums
    These abysmal sights were never even sporadic
    What we could never imagine is present at our disposal
    The desponding destruction of mankind
    Leaving us in a quandary

    The nature is so apoplectic to gift us a viral apocalypse
    Wrecking to eschew itself from its enemies
    Perhaps to pummel our conceit

    And now when the mankind is meandering to the bottomless future
    Just adumbrating
    Lay prone than supine
    To avert the knock.

    Tiny questions!

    Question arises in my mind,
    very tiny they are,
    But why can't I tell my mother?
    That questions gather-- in my mind.
    I want to fly, why can't I go to
    fairy tales
    I want to get wet, why can't
    I go in the watery place, like a duck.
    I want to drown in the middle of the
    sea,
    Wanna bring stones like a diver,
    Why can't I bring it?
    Why that?
    She doesn't answer these questions,
    just scolds me and leave.

    What I Wanna Be ?

    Sometimes when my mind is full of void,
    I ask myself a question that i generally avoid,
    WHAT I WANT TO BE, WHAT I WANNA BE?
    This is the question that fills me with confusion,
    Sometimes anxiety, depression fills my mind with delusion.
    But ain't that the question that everyone asks?
    Hiding their dilemma behind the masks.
    Sometimes, I just want to be a bit sloppy and very happy.
    What we all want is to make our lives less awful, more joyful and a lot colorful ain't that sounds cool?
    But then sometimes when my mind is full of void,
    I ask myself a question that i generally avoid,
    WHAT I WANT TO BE, WHAT I WANNA BE?

    आओ मिलें,
    कही बैठ ज़रा बात करें,
    कुछ छुपाने को जी चाहता है।

    बोल की बोली छोड़,
    बोलती निगाहों से नज़र मिलाऐं,
    आज कुछ बताने को जी चाहता है।

    वो दबी सी कस़क,
    दरार से छलक जाऐ,
    यूं मुस्कुराने को जी चाहता है।

    झूठ नहीं,
    ना सच ये कह दे,
    बस ऐसा कुछ छुपाने को,
    मेरा जी चाहता है।

    The Rhythm That Your Stories Tell

    The rhythm that your stories tell.
    The bliss that your touch feels.
    The tune in which your prayers sings.
    Is nothing but unscripted sync of my lost life which now I 've found.

    The curl of your hair.
    The presence of your care.
    The unspoken tales of mare.
    Is nothing but your truth for which I stand to dare.

    Your dusk tone.
    Your black eyes.
    Your zipped lips.
    Your enduring smile.
    Is nothing but an inspiration to walk with you for several miles.

    Oh! Unknown ,
    I promise to thee.
    To bring you with plea.
    To breathe together with glee
    In the journey of life it will be nothing but Just you and me.

    I SEE YOU SHINING SOMEWHERE IN THE DARK


    I like the foggy winter evenings,
    Where I find,
    The sweetest memories of you.
    I hear your voice,
    Again and again;
    In the sound of slowly falling fog.
    I draw your pictures,
    In the sky,
    Shining with twinkling stars.

    In every winter evening,
    Sitting near the window,
    I stare at the sky;
    Until midnight.
    When the whole world sleep,
    I feel the calmness of surroundings.
    I recall the memories of the past.
    That turn the darkness into light,
    That make everything alright.

    Whenever I needed you,
    Your were there.
    You picked me up,
    When I was down.
    You gave me strength,
    When I was at my lowest.

    You chased all my doubts always,
    You turned my life around,
    A blessing is what you are to me.

    I wanna let the whole world to know it;
    That,
    Every night..
    When I turn out the lights,
    I see you shining somewhere in the dark..

    A mother is like sunshine,
    her sacrifices are countless to define.
    Her love has no limit,
    as she has a beautiful and selfless spirit.
    To keep her child happy, she bears every pain,
    which is hard to explain.
    A mother never let you feel the pain she goes through,
    as her desire to see you cheerful and prosperous is true.

    Too scared

    This unsettling feeling,
    My heart running .
    Running away from the feelings,
    The feelings I don't want to feel.
    These unwanted feelings,
    That make me numb.
    Life feels too hard,
    My breath unconscious.
    Blaming myself for everything,
    Feeling trash, but being rash about my own self.
    Kind, but sometimes, too kind that it hurts me to my core.
    Skin unclear, eyes covered with dark circles, lieing to myself.
    Running away from my soul,
    Too scared to reveal myself to me.
    Too scared of being a bad person,
    Too scared of ruining my life,
    Too scared to live.

    Just for a Single Day

    Let's go out of the way,
    To enjoy something for the day.
    Let's not wait,
    And seek other's permission,
    But do what we like,
    Just for a single day.

    With the million of people
    Stressing out about the other people's view.
    Let's do something
    Which could make them stare us out.
    Let's keep all the rules shut
    Just for one day.

    Let's enjoy our life,
    Without any bondage.
    Let's forget all enemity ,
    Just for a single day.
    Be delighted to hold each other's hands
    Just for a single day.

    Let's make this world a better place,
    Just for a single day.
    And eventually as we try for the second day,
    Days will turn to weeks,
    Weeks to month,
    And months to years.

    Eyes talk

    Eyes talk, don't they?
    Sometimes they are full of dreams,
    Sometimes a little bit of fear ,
    Sometimes they shine brighter than stars,
    And sometimes they fade like dawn ,
    Eyes talk, don't they?
    If you ever come to her ,
    If you ever desire to know her ,
    If you ever wanna feel her,
    Her eyes are there for you,
    Waiting, waiting and always waiting,
    Waiting for you to come to her,
    Waiting for you to love her ,
    Waiting for you to understand her,
    Eyes talk, don't they?
    Her eyes are calm, beautiful and infinite ,
    But also angry, harsh and magnificent,
    Destiny lies in her beautifully wild eyes.

    Loner

    Expectations that reached the sky
    That one day I'll move on and fly
    A normal high school child's dream
    Just a normal life didn't want anything supreme
    A joyful day with the gossips in peer
    Wanted to be happy and always cheer
    Her imagination that had out grown her
    But then she realized she deserved to be loner

    The isolation that had suffocated her to the hell
    Always waiting for the tinkle of the bell
    Heard the tinkle and to the dwelling she rushed
    Laid on a pillow that the tears had mushed
    Holding the heart that had been crushed
    Hold the tears ,to the loner heart she shushed
    Exclaimed to herself,"don't be a moaner"
    But then she realized she deserved to be a loner

    Hello life

    "This life ain't easy it's full of hurdles
    Until we meet again save yourself from troubles.
    Don't worry dear, you'll meet the loved ones
    But look again if they're or not a con
    Watch the sun when it sets in the west
    In the purple horizon that is where the moon jests
    On your twenties we shall meet again
    Watch out for the foe and stay

    ~Love letter from a pillow to a book ~

    I hope I am not too late,
    But destiny has intertwined our fates,
    My nights have been sleepless so far:
    Let me hold you in my softness for a while.
    I am used to once a night relationship but,
    With you I want to spend my eternal life.
    I want to wake up in the mornings to your beautiful lines and phrases,
    I want to touch your curves and wrinkles that mark your beautiful pages,
    We are from different worlds,
    Where my best friend is my bed:
    And you are bind to the shelves
    But for once let 's break the rules
    And be each other's eternally...
