It’s All Just.... A State Of Mind!

Photo Credit: Image: SOMMAI /

How long are you going to stay entrapped?
Stay cocooned within four walls of your mind.
Why stand hiding behind your own shadow,
No place for shame, No place for regret, let it go!

What is that you are holding back in your psyche?
These are just thoughts,
Let them fly free and high.
Why heed to the cynics,
Why fret about what they think,
Why keep it all bottled up and let your soul stink.

What you seek you will surely find,
Just don’t give up, not just yet,
Walk ahead, walk just a few more miles,
Walk the path with head held high and a smile.

The gloom within is what you created,
It’s time now to shrug it off your mind.
It’s not as hard as you envisage,
It’s all just a state of mind.

    What you seek you will surely find,
    Just don’t give up, not just yet,
    Walk ahead, walk just a few more miles,
    Walk the path with head held high and a smile.

  2. You wished for a great life..
    But what you created within is just gloom..
    Why this melancholy, why this strife..
    When it is also within YOU to bloom!

Awakening Of the Inner Self!

It was yet another Friday or billions of earthlings. May be it was a mundane day ahead for some and exciting for others. An exciting day ahead for the ones who were certain of the joy to be unwrapped the next day, the weekend. Well, in my case it was the former. Blame it on being one amongst the many who work on Saturdays.

Sweet Song of The Soul

The distance between us questions possibilities,
Two souls who connect yet shall stay detached,
Life running along parallel tracks that shall never meet,
Yet hope says they would someday be entwined.

UnInhibited feelings spoken, thoughts exchanged,
Unassuming how the world would read them,
Prejudices can't be fought, let free thoughts sail,
It's a battle less spoken, but I know many shall be fought.

Feelings expressed in words for many are view points,
Sometimes misunderstood, unacceptable for few.
Thoughts expressed are sometimes song of a bleeding heart,
These emotions maybe shunned by many as no art.

Questioned and unacceptable orphan thoughts,
Wish to die accepted, but denied and stay detest.
Don't let yourself be consumed by the opinions of others,
Your soul deserves a sweet song, let it be one about it's zest.

Let's accept, It's important to fail!!!

The other day in midst of a long tiring journey from the airport I zoned out in thoughts, looking outside the window. What was I thinking? I was trying to fathom as to what's the single most element distinguishing mediocrity from excellence.

A lot of us have this beautiful idea in our mind to be achievers of some sort. Each individual has their own definition of excellence. All of it leading to creating a happy space in our minds. But these remain mere ideas and definitions in our head.

We have a lot of clutter occupying our minds. Some of it even includes being less appreciative of others success. Being too bothered about right and wrong of others choices. A bunch of useless thoughts which in no way are going to be helping us in our pursuit of happiness. When we are done with all the wining about the world and people in it, we get on with our mediocre life.

We seem to believe that there is solace in the cocoon of mediocrity.
