It was so wonderful to have you in my hands, That I jumped in excitement like a kid, I hugged and praised all your colourful features, And my heart swelled with pride because I knew that you belonged to me. When the wind came, you started to flutter, And I knew that you wanted to fly high in the sky, So, I carefully chose the string to tie it with you, Then ran towards the highest peak that I ever knew.
I looked for the wind directions to help you with your flight, And slowly detached myself from you for your wish to come true, When I saw your happiness I had to cut the string that attached you with me, To let you go,to see you roam freely. But, when the wind settles and you find that there is not even a breeze, To keep you motivated with your flight, Find your way back home, And I will be waiting with the perfect string to launch you back in the sky. -JMJ
Please leave your comments on the post as I would really love to read them.
Last night I saw you on my way, Talking to someone and walking away, I saw you were all smiling and happy with your life, While you made me to think all about my life. Last night I saw you turned to look at me, And your helpless eyes spoke to me, I felt a twitch in my heart as I saw the sea infront of you, Were you happy for yourself or for someone that you knew? Last night I saw that you were saying goodbye, While wind whispered in my ears all the secrets of your eye, In that cold dark night I saw your tears coming through, Last night I think I dreamt of you. -JMJ
With a flawless skin which has no sign of aging, And dark long hair which can be really engaging, Deep blue eyes which has an ocean inside, Anyone would love to dive in without knowing what is inside, She has a perfect smile that can lit up the sky, But with a dark heart reflecting all the evils under the sky.
Other one is an epitome of ugliness that's how the world see, With no facial features or perfect teeth, People loveto swipe quickly as her picture comes on screen, But her acts of kindnesses are always honoured behind the screen. Her eyes are doves symbolizing peace and love, And hands so warm that can calm any storm with a touch or a hug, She is a free spirit woman who you can never tame, So, if I want to define beauty what it would be? -JMJ
Do you feel like sometimes whatever you do to make things right it’s not enough? You try and keep on trying to make other people’s life easier and happier but ultimately, you get blamed for the things that you never did.
You feel like everyone’s fingers are pointing on you and you don’t even know why? People take advantage of your silence because you don’t want to hurt others by telling the truth. Every morning you get up hoping that it would be a good day and try to be positive but you overhear people saying lies about you and spreading gossips.
You feel like to shout on top of your voice saying to the whole world that you are innocent but all you can do is swallow your words and take shelter in the dark corner of a room. You feel like you are walking on the eggshells.
Do you feel like even if you are honest about each and everything, everyone will make you a liar because that is what they want for their reputation and benefits? Have you ever felt how cold the world can be?
Something strange happened today, I got a smile for the rest of the day, We met a charming lady on our way to the shop, While I was rushing through and said my girl to chop chop. This woman at an elderly age, Was sitting on a wheelchair and looked like a sage, She waved,smiled and gave my child a shake hand, It gave me a feeling like someone has already planned, To meet a stranger and to make my day, I would love to meet a stranger like her everyday. -JMJ
Strength is when you get up every morning, And all you want is to do moaning, Instead you decide to get dressed, Believing that you are amazingly blessed.
Strength is when you are in a rabbit hole, But try to put a smile on every soul, And even when you are tired to take another step, You lend a hand who have fallenon their doorstep.
Strength is when your heart bleeds, Still take the decisions according to their needs, Even though the person has hurt you so much, You just hope for their happiness without any grudge.
Strength lies in our values and integrity, It lies in understanding our talent and capability, Strength is not only physical but emotional and mental too, It's walking in the darkness keeping your head high and believing that you will getthrough. -JMJ
You will be that pain in my heart that never gets old, As your lies were taking chances one by one to unfold, A scar in my heart that will always be new, While you are partying with someone I knew. Time heals everything they say, Hoping that it won't be a lifetime and that's what I pray, How could one can understandanother's soul so deeply, Yet can't see their betrayals and be blind completely? -JMJ
I wrote this poem while I was watching Grace and Frankie. It was actually Frankie who inspired me as she loved Sol and knew each and every minute details about him but didn’t realize that he was cheating on her for about two decades. Irony is that they were like soulmates.
I saw dark circles under my eyes, But they always told the truth and never the lies, They have hope beyond the troubles in the world, Even when I was feeling all crumbled. I saw wrinkles on my face, But they reminded me of all the laughters and the grace, They were not only the signs of my love and care, But also my strong determination and willthatyou mustbeware. I saw my hairs are turning grey, That's not a reason for dismay, That salt and pepper hairs on my head, Are the signs that I have come so far ahead. -JMJ
