The Remorse


I saw a girl down the street,
A toddler who loved a treat,
With an innocent smile she wandered around,
From one place to another as she didn't remember where she was found.
With a plastic carry bag on her hand,
She was following the big girl who was in command,
Picking up the litters to buy some food,
But I'm sure it was no good.
I walked past her in a hurry to get my bus,
Thinking that I would get another chance and no need of a fuss,
Doing the same thing the whole week,
Finally I found sometime for the weak.
Waiting for her with a bag in my hand,
I never thought that I would be so late to understand,
That reaching out to others is never a waste of time,
Now, all I got is a feeling of remorse that I was not there for her on time.

Perfect Storm

Alone in a deep forest,
Thinking about whether to protest,
Against all discriminations and bias,
Or to hide away and be pious.
She saw innocents being crucified,
Blamed and buried for something they had never tried,
Powerful was taking advantage and pulling the strings,
And then they claimed about their sufferings!
The reality was reversed as people closed their eyes,
The perpetrators said they were victimized,
Now, how can she just be quiet?
The perfect storm was in formation and she said to them, try it.

Spirit

You will find the greatest human spirits,
In the hell's deepest pits,
Where people refuse to surrender to what happened to them,
And don't allow to be defined by the people around them.

There is an unrelenting human spirit in each one of us,
That helps us to fight any evil forces,
An undefeatable mind and a body in motion,
With courage, resilience, love and compassion.

Rain

Heaven has opened its door,
Bringing tranquility to our soul,
Soothing the Earth's burned skin,
Making the thirsty birds to sing.
Trees are whispering their joy in my ears,
Swaying their body like dancers,
Sky have their own drum beats to show off,
And I'm wondered by the lights they are bringing out.
As I sit inside my house watching the downpour,
Every drop is a grace that I was hoping for.

Taken For Granted..

Like a candle she burns for others,
But gets blamed for the death  of a firefly who tests her patience.

Like an ocean she gives lives to others,
But gets cursed for all the drownings who underestimated her and forgot the strength.

Like a raindrop she quenches the thirst of others,
But is defamed for the destructions caused due to the negligence of yours.

How long will you take her for granted?

Cancer

When I first found you,
I thought it's good to have you,
You made me believe that you helped me grow,
And that you are the reason that I glow.
But then as years passed by,
You made your way to each and every cells of mine,
Killing all the normalcy,
There were times that I couldn't even clearly see.
Many years passed and you became a part of me,
Biting my lips I tolerated all the pain you caused to me.
But now, as your toxin is spreading to my brain and affecting the people around me,
It's time to do a surgical incision and do an ectomy.

A Prayer


A morning so beautiful,
How could I not be grateful?
Yesterday is all gone,
And tomorrow is still not grown.
All I have is a wonderful present in my hand,
How can I just let it go like sand?
This life's path is narrow with rock and thorn,
So I start the day with a silent prayer in my lawn.
A prayer to keep my hopes high,
And to keep my feet on the ground while reaching for the moon in the sky.

Farm Day, Fun Day

When the schools are closed for summer vacation, then it’s the time to explore new places. As I come from a part of the world where we can find a mini farm in most of the houses, I was missing animals in my life. My daughter is an animal lover. “Mama, can I keep that cat?” “Mama, how about a dog?” “Oh! I love rabbits. They are so cute.” “Mama, can we keep chicks or ducks as pets.” These are just some of the examples that she asks about keeping a pet at home. So, we decided to go to a farm today.

The place is so beautiful and serene. A wonderful place for children as well as adults. My daughter loved feeding animals there. Another attraction for her was to find the fairies and their houses. The walk and the nature itself helped me to relax and calm my mind.

Sheeps came running as soon as they saw us. They knew we had their food and I had an excited kid beside me.

Those hens reminded me of my childhood. I had hens, Blacky and Browny when I was a kid. I still remember the day they died one after another because of some flu. My mom told the news when I came back from school. I did cry a lot on that day.

Ducks were hungry so as the goose. So, the goose decided to peck them all to have some food.

While, other geese were enjoying a lazy day.

Turkeys were into some show off mood today, I guess. To be honest, my daughter got afraid of them.

I loved these two and it was so much fun watching and especially feeding them. They are so adorable.

Those piglets reminded my daughter of her favorite character, Peppa Pig. They do love muddy puddles!!

In short, it was an absolute fun day!!

Please leave your comments on the post as I would really love to read them.
