The Swing…


I'm swinging up and down,
Not knowing what is coming along,
As I go up, I see the most beautiful sight,
And when I'm down I watch the lava flowing inside.
At one point I have the heaven,
An angel standing beside me,
Telling the truth, separating the right from the wrong,
Guiding the way, showing the perfect path for my journey.
Then, suddenly I'm in hell,
Fighting with my demons,
Burning myself in the fire,
Where temptations are crawling around me,
And every inch of my body and mind is tired of struggling with the strongest evil that I have ever known.



I'm swinging up and down,
Not knowing where I belong,
The harder I push myself to be in a place where I can hear melodious song,
To make peace with my past,
Longing for the serendipity that other people have known,
The deeper I plunge into an ocean of darkness,
Into the void where I was left alone,
Trying to get a grasp on my life, for one breath.
I'm swinging up and down,
Not knowing if I should carry on.

Angel In Disguise👼

If you look really closely, you will find a lot of angels around you. Don’t believe me? It may be because they always come in front of us in disguise. Yes…. Angels in disguise.

In my life, I have met several angels who were there to protect me or help me when I was in trouble. I’m just going to share one of the experiences I had when I was a school girl.

Several years ago, I think I was in eighth standard, I met an angel as an autorickshaw driver. It was the time that we had just moved to our native place from a different state. So, it was a time of lot of changes. New place, new environment, new school and new friends. You know how difficult it is when you are in high school and everything is new to you.

One day, I was taking bus to my school and I took the wrong one. After sometime when I realized my mistake, I asked the bus conductor whether that bus goes to the place where my school is situated. And the answer was obviously no. He asked me to get down from the bus at a place from where I could get another one. I waited there for sometime but there was no bus. It was almost time for my school and I got scared. I didn’t know where I was and at that time we didn’t have any mobile phones. I had no idea what to do.

Then, I saw a autorickshaw driver. I asked him whether he can drop me to my school. He smiled at me and then said to sit down in the autorickshaw. After fifteen or twenty minutes we reached the school. I could see that I was late and school had already started. I asked the rickshaw driver how much I had to pay. He said an amount which I can’t remember now but I didn’t have that with me when I checked my bag. I looked at him and said that I study in 8th standard. I asked him whether he can wait for sometime so that I could go and ask my classmates whether they had got the money as I didn’t have that much with me. He again gave me a smile and said, “Don’t worry about it. Go to the class.” He didn’t take a single paise from me. I almost cried and said thank you from my heart.

That’s, one of my angels in disguise and I will never forget his kindness in my life.
