    When I say you’re my life
    I mean you are who keeps me alive.
    Your existence,
    My lifeblood. My oxygen.

    When I say you bring colours,
    I mean without you my world is duller
    Without you,
    I don’t see a hue.
    Flowers look grey, Sky seems dark.
    Without you, there is no spark.

    When I say I love you,
    I mean I love the me when I’m with you
    I love every day that has you
    And I love my smile when the reason is you.

    Shine. Dream. Smile.

    One day you'll smile again
    None will rain on your parade
    The world won't haunt you anymore
    Faces on your sidewalk won't daunt you.
    You won't see dark clouds anymore
    Only clear sky
    Flowers won't look grey anymore
    So will the butterfly
    One day you'll live again.

    Be you.

    You are here because there’s something the world needs, which only you can offer
    It is your uniqueness and your power that makes the difference.

    You think you’re okay

    You think everything is normal
    And there’s nothing out of ordinary
    Then it hits you out of nowhere
    When people close to you ask questions
    It hits you like a wrecking ball
    That you’re not being yourself
    That you’re hurting.
    But the worst part is..
    The one who can heal you
    Is the one who hurt you

    Words make, words break.

    I do believe in magic; and the most evident magic lies in words.
    They can save lives sometimes and sometimes, they are deadlier than venom.
    They have the power to heal, and just as easily, do they rip hearts off into pieces.
    Choose them wisely.

    Find love in you.

    Stop leaning on people, they are weak.
    Stop finding solace in words, words can trap,
    Stop seeing happiness elsewhere, when you have it in you.
    Stop seeking love everywhere, when you can find it in you.
    Stop.

    I was right there
    I watched it all
    Riveted to the spot
    I saw it all
    My home being ripped off
    The walls crumbling away
    The wrecking ball
    Making it's way
    Through the memories we made
    In the garden, we played
    The old hammock, slightly frayed
    In this garden, I held the spade
    With a heavy heart, I saw it all
    Violent pounding in my head
    But I stayed
    Those were our memories
    Now clinging to the debris
    They wage wars
    Disregarding the casualties
    collateral damage, they call
    They worry not about the fatalities
    I was right there, I saw it all.

    Wasn't I supposed to be safe at home?
    Safe from the cruelty
    A refuge from inhumanity
    Wasn't home supposed to be a haven?
    Where hearts are at peace.
    And tired souls at ease.
    Or is it only for the privileged
    Not for me, I guess
    For my chatter is a nuisance
    Them slapping me, makes sense
    My dreams are shunned
    Here my sobs are stifled
    Tears akin to river foam
    There is constant criticism.
    Wasn't home, stockade?
    Protecting us from the hate
    Not for me, I guess
    I wonder how it feels
    To be god's favourite.
    Isn't home, Nirvana?
    Or is it just me, bad anna.
