    Jingling Of Hope


    Jingling of coin.
    Works on my broken hope to join.
    Even in this hypocritical society.
    Where men came to kill their sobriety.
    "What's your dream?" , My teacher asked.
    To which I proudly said , "To buy my mom the bangles she sold so that my studies could last."
    Going back home.
    Enjoyed the tamarind candies while I roam.
    That my mum kept as a reward in the lunch box tin.
    Cause I always threw left over food in some bin.
    While wandering freely, destiny had some other plan.
    That's why few men abducted me and took away in a van.
    I kept screaming ," Leave me alone , let me go."
    Little did I know it was just the beginning of my woe.
    "What part of world is this!" , I wondered.
    Where men were outnumbered.
    I was shivering with fear.
    When she welcomed, "Have this candy and come with me dear."
    She reminded me of my mother.
    So I held her firmly while she was taking me through rooms decorated in bright colour.
    She added , "This is your new home."
    And asked me to get ready before gloam.
    "I want to go.", I cried.
    To which she took my lunch tin and put a coin inside
    She shook the box and asked me to focus on chinks
    "Go home once the box is full.", she winks
    While sending me in the room , she whispered ," Obey the payers,
    Even though they may give pain while entering your layers,
    Still make yourself likable. ", she said.
    But what happened next led my tears to shred.
    How couldn't he see my suffocation when I groaned under his grunting and gasping breath.
    That Led my soul to death
    She granted another penny
    That's when I realised the tin still needs many
    With dreams in eyes
    Body bleeding more than its size
    I shook the tin
    That reflected hope of a brighter tomorrow away from this sin

    A penny for your thoughts

    A penny for your thoughts? Collaboration with Poetic Beauty

    A penny for your thoughts
    Can a brain be bought?
    Everything you were taught
    You could make alot

    I don't want to pry
    But what's on your mind?
    If you tell me ten times
    It would be worth a dime

    I have a thousand thoughts
    But there's one thought
    Worth more than a million pennies
    It's more than just a thought , it's a
    Wish and turns into a plan
    Is to wake up in his arms
    Everyday for the rest of our lives

    Choose the people who will support your ideas.
    Knowing where your ideas will be effective matters a lot.
    Don't just randomly go on telling your ideas to people.
    They might say it's not worth our time. We can't invest on something like that.
    You are just demotivating yourself by sharing your ideas.
    But the ones who understand what you are trying to do will give you a clear path, a much better version of how you can be successful and they will invest in your ideas.

    Dad: She is going thin.
    Mom: Ohh! Please! she is growing from all sides


    Its difficult to understand how different people express their love for you...
    Its not complicated to understand humans its just psychologically and scientifically "not possible".. Every inch of a human is different..
    Dads have difficulty expressing because they are used to keeping their shit together.. that they can't just say I love you to your face... On the other hand moms are savage.. they troll you but they assure you that next time someone apart from her says those words you are prepared to answer yourself..
    Honestly, it took time for me to understand a lot of things..
    Be happy with what you have now. Because 90s kids are blessed with the most evolving parents..our parents have seen us grow through the most technical generation and they are the ones who are keeping us alive to keep up with all the shit.. A study says almost 75% of the current youth have at least thought of committing suicide once in their life time and 57% of them backed out because for them their families were the better picture.
    Love your parents when you have the time.. Hugging your mom wouldn't cost you a penny and discussing about other people with your dad wouldn't make you dumb..

    I still remember...

    I still remember how those eyes use to tease me.
    I still remember how those creepy situations would make me feel.
    I still remember how it all changed, where no penny left in my bag.
    I still remember everything which helped me to be real me.

    If this life was worth one penny, I will bring my piggy bank and save as many.

    She offered him a penny for his thoughts, even though she knew they were worth at least twice that amount.

    My lucky penny

    I remember the day When it all ended
    I had to give up my lucky penny
    You had to give up a penny too

    Yet the stories were quite different
    You gave a penny from the thousands you already had
    I had to give my favourite out of the pennies few

    And now even though i may be broke
    I wish you always have your pennies with you

    awaited words

    I seek your words daily
    I seek the scribe of your thought
    and emotion
    awaiting another pennyed gem
    with glee and furrowed brow alike
    and often bewildered delight
    so please feel free to amaze me
    with your wonderful brain tonight

    Life lesson !
    ...


    From
    Get me a toy,
    to
    Get me a bike..

    He gave few pennies,
    But seldom a hike..

    I wonder with a strike-
    Life & Father's approach to teach,
    is more or less, seems to be alike.!

    A penny and love are a lot like you see, a penny cost more to make than it's actually worthwhile love, it costs everything at times and it could always just amount to nothing in the end.
    I don't know if people understand that because they always seem to poke and pry at the heart, feel like it could be ripped out of their very chest by the person they trusted the most.
    Though that's the thing, you put your faith in others and that's the problem. Others can use your feeling's like a personal game, only to set a new record or break one that stands.
    It's honestly sickening, people use hearts as if they were expendable as if they were invincible. But that's when they hear the most terrifying sound.
    A crack then the sound of glass shattering inside of you. That my friend is the sound of your heart breaking in two. Who knew that it could happen to you, I mean you're the strongest of them all, the lighthouse in the lightless abyss.
    That's when you know that all that shit, all of it was real, and you just fucked with it all aimlessly so call it karma that it just happened to you. Have your heart broken as you've done to people before.
    Though now it's hard to breathe, hard to see it seems you're living your life underwater constantly breathing in the water until your lungs collapse or until your head explodes.
    Love could cost the world and more, and in the end it may give nothing but happiness or should I call it bliss? Cause it isn't always there. Just as a penny costs more to make a heart does too.

    The Arrogant

    Why do you drag your cloak with vanity?
    Pride is the garment that befits ony The Mighty!
    Those of you who boast their amassed wealth
    Had He not blessed you would you even have health?
    Look at the way you frown upon the destitute
    If born penniless would you like for yourself this attitude?
    You spare not a single chance to show off your money
    But when a needy asks you, you say "I'm already in debt honey!"
    You spend thousands to get latest gadgets
    But if your servant asks for extra penny you say, "I don't have it"
    Man's greed can only be satisfied by grave dirt
    Only then he will know his treasure's actual worth

    A STORY OF SIMPLICITY - "AVON MITHAI"

    EVERY MORNING WINTER OR SUMMER, WE STOOD OUTSIDE OUR HOME DRESSED IN SCHOOL UNIFORMS, WAITING FOR MOTHER TO DROP THAT RUPEE IN OUR HANDS. JUST A PENNY WOULD FILL THE NEED OF THE EMPTY POCKET AND ACCOUNTED FOR CHECKING MY POCKET EVERY SINGLE TIME WHILE AT SCHOOL HOURS.
    WHILE WE WALKED BACK HOME I WOULD BUY THE "AVON MITHAI"(Coconut and milk flavoured Sweet) AND GOT TWO FOR A RUPEE. IT WAS MY FAVOURITE BECAUSE IT WAS CHEAP AND DELICIOUS. THE FLAVOUR WOULD MAKE ME SEE HEAVEN AT TIMES AND MY FANTASY TUMBLED WHEN IT WOULD STICK TO MY JAWS. I WOULD WALK BACK HOME HAPPY AND CONTENT, TRYING TO DISENGAGE THE MITHAI WITH MY FINGERS.

    LIFE WAS JUST SO SIMPLE AND HAPPY BACK THEN. NOW THAT LIFE ISN'T REALLY LIFE WITHOUT MONEY, WE TEND TO LOOSE OUR SIMPLICITY IN MANY POSSIBLE WAYS.

    Need a penny
    To go back,
    Where I was,
    What I was,
    Who I was,
    How I was!

    Need a penny
    To go back,
    With whom I was!

    A Chance Encounter

    A glass of water being spilled on hard wood floors fades the varnish.
    I am a penny that was in the glass and left to tarnish.
    Now free at last.
    The glass and I, knocked over by a cat, share the same vision and attempt to roll to freedom.
    Set on the edge of steps by a human prone to forget.
    We were set up to fall to our death.
    So many good reasons why I bounced one way and he smashed to pieces.
    So many reasons, that I forgot them all.
    The entire time that I sat drowning in a sea of seeing but not being, we shared many things such as, collected thoughts and unreasonable dreams.
    Yet all along, we did not speak.
    Not a single hello and with no time to say goodbye, our paths had crossed with no explanations as to why.
    Still, all and all he was a glass filled with something he did not wish.
    And i was a penny too heavy to swim.
    And for unknown reasons, left to tarnish inside of him.

    Even if all I had,
    Was a crooked penny,
    For all the times,
    I cried myself to sleep,
    I would be richer,
    Than the woman I loved,
    The only reason,
    That I have to weep.

    Less than a penny

    I'm not so bold,
    Or so I'm told.
    I'm like a mole,
    That's about to be plowed.

    I start to talk,
    And then they walk.
    They can hear me,
    But they won't bear me.

    Apparently I'm so showy
    But not like Joey.
    I try to be funny,
    And i end up being a penny.
