She Strolled Past My Emotions

She strolled past my emotions, When I was left with a glimmer, A glimmer of hope and conviction, That I shall stride ways in liberation.

She strolled past my worries, When all I had was agony, I warned myself to keep serene, For plodding are our lives unevenly.

I could feel her fingers slip away, Away from mine, in anguish. And my world succumbs before her When the moment left me vanquished.

Lockdown Impressions

Hello from this side, after a very long break. A lot more had happened in life, and I have achieved what I have been dreaming since a time I can not recall. Finally, I have come back to my hobby that I have always wanted to find time for.

As the news has already filled the air, our nation has gone for a complete lockdown for 21 days. Ironically, most of us are left with nothing to do for the next few days. Have we all been left deserted for a span?? Possibly yes. But do you realize the positivity that had just crammed into our lives all of a sudden? Maybe this is the longest leisure time that most of the professionals in our country would have run into. The time to be within the comforts of your home, spend quality time with your folks and do whatever you have always wanted to do. Amidst all the negativity manifesting across the globe, let us unravel our oversight and hope for better new sunshine at the end of all that is happening. So here goes…

Dropping down into your own thoughts and staying self-connected.

This has been a camouflage in most of our lives as we have established endless excuses for ourselves. We have been lying to ourselves and have deliberately set our souls aside amidst the hustles of our lives. And now we are at a time to unplug ourselves from this over-connected world and discover the hidden self. Definitely, your soul has a bunch to share.

When you have to connect to yourself, you may have to go back to your childhood remembrances. Imagine you had an ambition which you, unfortunately, could not pursue in your life. Or you wanted time to pursue a hobby which was overlooked for long. Go back to your child snapshots and bring the child back in you. Maybe then you realize, you have walked far from what you have dreamt of.

Dr. APJ Abdul Kalam quoted in his book, Learning how to fly, ” You can only be YOU! But the world around you is doing it’s best, day and night, to make you just like everybody else. “

But do you see the brighter side? The world who have been constantly changing you have averted now and there is silence in the air. Discover the impossible, overcome your fears, acquire knowledge, and let yourself out from the mediocrity of your life. Be your boss and do what you love ❤️ for a couple of days ahead.

The Souvenir

Footsteps do follow me,

In the dark roads to my destiny

I choose not to turn back

But follow the aroma,

Spread by the outlandish flowers.

This place isn’t any new,

the same four rock pillars,

Where flowers hang down.

I know not, the color of it,

But the fragrance it spreads,

And waves my darkness away.

The fragrance wanes as time pass by,

Tossing me into darkness again.

I Ought to drag light into my way,

For destiny is waiting for me,

To barge in one day,

When I am done with my days,

Of hardships and wrath of the critic.

So I have ”Miles To go Before I sleep”
