Colour My Soul, Colour me Bright...

It all looks so colourful outside,
But I sense the darkness within.
In search of colours to brighten my soul,
I step outside the imaginary walls,
And so does the new journey begin.

Never been certain what colour was my soul,
But it sure was not grey as now.
May be it was pink with love,
May be even yellow with joy,
Or maybe it was red, blue and green.

Wonder aloud where did I lose those colours?
What made them go light and disappear?
Was it the pain I brought upon myself?
Or was it all just my fear?

It’s time now to smash out of the shell,
Heaven within awaits with open arms.
It’s time now to soak myself in joy,
It’s time now to smile and ring the invisible bell.

  1. Lovely poem, after a long gap, Vijay:) Cheers!

  2. That was nice a read!!
    for some reason reading the poem reminds me of "Colours of Light" by Dorithea Mackellar. It guess it is the essential use of colors to describe the bigger picture.

    i write poetry very intermittently, so i understand when u say words flow on their own....:0), but dont stop when they flow.

  3. its a beautiful poem ,loved it :) :)

  4. This is one of your best poems and I liked it very much. It is not simple though. It makes you to take a pause and think, and that, in my openion, is the sign of a really good poem.

  5. Very beautiful - kind of reflects my state of mind!

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.
