Mirrored beauty!! Reflecting divergent roles Chubby, cheeky girl Lighting the lamp as wife Embodiment of motherhood Loving and caring daughter Without her there is a void She is a cactus Tough and soft Marvellous creation of God.
Life itself a battle field Everyone fights to yield Not only in legends we find We rage within our mind Painful moments we bear Turning into memorable scar
A child struggles, comes out from the womb Tearful, joyful, expressive mother's bloom Undergoes transformation in stages For finding justice he/she enrages Always on wheels to find a place Fulfill the dreams with a race
Like spider we weave the web Rising and falling on the ebb Our goal act as a Spur Driving out with Utmost care Celebrate the triumph of victory Finding a place in history
Facing life like a brave soldier Battle field's sole controller Each day a war front For getting a treasure hunt A makeover from the wound A joyous leap into the abyss found
This piece was inspired by the nausea and vertigo I've been dealing with for about a week now. As there's not much that I can do about it, I did what we writers do when we're unable to do anything else. I wrote about it. Thank you for reading!
P.S. I'll be mostly inactive until this situation resolves. See you soon.
VERTIGO by Carolyn Glackin Boy, you got me reeling Like I'm spinning in space Swaying back and forth E'er since I first saw your face Caught up in this motion I don't know what to do Going nowhere, yet I'm moving Ever closer to you Don't know how it happened Guess you caught me off guard Feelin' like a lunatic Life is hittin' me hard Babe you got me rockin' Like the waves in the ocean But it's time to cool it down I need to quell this commotion You shook the ground before me When you stepped on this Earth You showed me your true power So I'd know what you're worth No need to get it twisted Don't pull the rug from beneath me You gotta know by now I prize the love you bequeath me Never mind the past Let's move together in time Come find me in the beat Of every word that I rhyme You can be my rock 'Cause you're so steady and strong And I can keep us grounded We won't waver for long You got me straight up syncopatin' In this unchecked syncope Gettin' vertical with vertigo Between you and me Come on, let's shake it loose We'll be together, yet free.

I have written from the Point of view of a cloth that is used to cover a dead body.
I have heard that people get philosophical after the death of a loved one. Surely it does. I am sorry if it has put you in a pensive mood but this is reality and the faster we come to terms with it, the better.
I wasn't born into a perfect world so why does this world try to fit me into frames of perfection ? body shapers botox and padded bras why do I need to keep proving time and again that beauty lies not within parameters but in my wrinkles blemishes and brown skin But then .. I keep getting entrapped in this vicious cycle only because I allow myself to .
I do not believe in the concept of celebrities . Nor do I look up to someone as a role model . Because if I became you , where is the person I was meant to be ?
I believe ... In the power of a woman not because you were fortunate enough to reach a mark .. But in the power of a woman who struggles , keeps going against all odds and still strives to do the best she can .
I believe ... In the extraordinary power of an ordinary woman .
