Special Something Forever....


It’s not your fault that you had to go away,
You never promised you will be here forever.
I look back at the days gone by,
Smiling as the glimpses of past cross my mind


I stare at the table,
Sitting on it is the broken brown cup,
Reminding me of our pointless fights,
Our silly talks about kites and ego rights.

I flip through my diary,
A paper slips on to the floor.
I stare it hard till it gets wet with my tears,
It’s a half done sketch of you my dear.

Your broken red bangle
Safely hidden in the shelf,
It is all that I ever stole,
A remembrance now, for my troubled soul.

You had told me, you had nothing to offer,
I knew you would never be mine.
You had to go away,
And now you are gone.

Why? What if? Why not?
Some questions have no answers.
Your absence does hurt, but I regret nothing,
You are forever my special something.

Your Thoughts Are Valuable....

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.
