Is There A Way?

Is there a way to find out,
What is inside your heart?
Is it the feeling of happiness of loving someone?
Or a feeling of pride of owning someone?
Is there a way to find out,
What your intentions are?
Is it to bring out the best in someone?
Or to tarnish by spilling out the the secrets of your trusted ones?
Is there a way to find out,
Who you really are?
Is that the big smile on your face is honest?
Or just a lie to hide your poisonous mind which is dishonest?
Is there a way to find out,
While I'm standing on this crossroad,
To run towards you with all the love in my heart,
Or to run away as fast I can with my life in my hand?

Immersion


I found myself in a lovely place,
Where a gentle breeze touched my face,
Where the mountains stood with their heads high,
And where the birds flew freely in the sky.
The river was so pure that it mirrored my face,
The grasses were so soft which reminded me to offer my prayers,
Where the sun enjoyed playing hide and seek with the clouds,
And the trees danced slowly in the wind singing their songs aloud.
Then I saw a familiar face which I love dearly,
Those eyes were speaking to me and all I wanted was a hug so tightly,
That we could breath out all our air to the atmosphere,
And release our spirits into that place that we really care.

The Volcano

Once there was a beautiful place with lots of trees, plants, animals and birds. A place like heaven where the day started with the blooming flowers and chirping of birds and ended with an amazing view of sunset and the nights were so serene. A volcano too lived among them. She loved to see lives around her and was proud of the place where she was situated.

One day, the volcano was tagged as an extinct one as she had not erupted for a long time and scientists could not find any activity within her. So, people started to come to this beautiful place to see the volcano as well as to make some business out of it. Many of them who came, were not that gentle towards her or to the place which she loved. They exploited it so much that place started to ruin it’s beauty. As people thought that the volcano was extinct, they used to go nearer to her and threw stones at her. People love to tease and attack something which they think that can’t react, don’t they? It continued for a long time and what happened was unexplainable. The volcano erupted with a maximum intensity and she started to spit fire balls along with the lava and poisonous gas. The whole place was turned to ash and the lava engulfed everything, people, animals, birds, trees and plants. Nothing survived.

Now, the volcano was tagged as active. People were afraid not even to go nearer to volcano but to the place. She waited patiently because she knew that the place will be beautiful and she will be happy. After a few years, she was proud of the place again where she was situated and she lied dormant once again watching the beautiful sight around her hoping that she won’t be tagged as extinct again.

I have tried to make my point using a parable here. I hope that you will like it. Please leave your comments on the topic as I would really love to read them.

The Pretence

So how's this, this mask?
Do I look pretty? Do I look smart?
Tell me, what is my role today?
Should I just keep my eyes dry or should I also wear a smile?
All those bruises can be made unseen,
With a make up and no one will ever be keen,
To question how fake is the smile,
Or am I living a lie?


An abuser lives in all of us,
Some find happiness in other's tears,
Beating up, mocking up and blocking everything what is dear,
Others like to turn a blind eye making me to wish that the death is near,
Never reach out but love to give a long sigh,
All I want is someone to sit beside,
No need to talk, just hold my hands tight,
It's another day as I can see the light,
I should be ready for the people outside,
So tell me, how's this, this mask?
Do I look pretty? Do I look smart?

What’s Your Status?

Clearing my exams with distinction

Looking forward to get the admission

They stopped me on my way and asked me

Hey girl, what’s your status?

Finishing my college with flying colors

Preparing myself to get my dream job and put some feathers

I found people on my way who asked me

Hey girl, what’s your status?

When I thought I found a perfect match

We could live forever with love in our hearts

But again, I was surrounded by people who asked me

Hey girl, what’s your status?

Hearing those questions all along

Starting to question myself whether I’m alone

I found the answer to that question inside me

So now, when people surround to ask me

Hey girl, what’s your status?

Looking in their eyes and standing on my ground

You know what I say, this is my status.

Soulful Eyes


Standing two feet away from me,
I knew that you were watching me.
All I could see were your eyes,
Flames of fire burning my eyes.


I couldn't stop myself but to stare,
Wondering what else must be there.
I remember those eyes from somewhere else,
Is that from this life or the previous ones?


Are they meant to pierce my body, soul and mind?
All those questions were passing through my mind.
Those eyes were so deep and soulful,
That I could drown myself and be grateful.


When we got distracted from the people around,
I knew that those eyes will just linger around.
May be not in this life but surely in my dreams,
Ahh! I think it's time to wake up from my sleep and say goodbye to my dreams.

A Letter To My Younger Self….

Dear my younger self,

It’s been a long time that I didn’t write to you. But you know that I miss you a lot. We had such a wonderful time together. I still remember those days where I was still learning not only the academic stuff but also about the society and the world itself. That was the time where I started to broaden my mind and started accepting the people from different backgrounds. I went to several states, saw people who spoke different languages and followed different culture and traditions. You made so many friends and some of them are so good that I can keep for lifetime and share my secrets. You learned about technology including computer which is helping me now to connect with my parents and friends even though we are miles apart. You read so many books and gave me a wonderful space to hide each time. Your sleepless nights with your friends where you roamed the streets enjoying street foods gave me sweet memories to remember for the life.

I’m not afraid to tell you that you did some mistakes too. You were so poor in making decisions about your own life which had a great impact on me later. You were so naive to trust people who were not good enough for your time and attention and got hurt so many times. Sometimes, you were so stubborn to accept the facts because you thought that you were right and were not even thinking about other possibilities. Lack of wisdom made you to jump on certain opportunities and then to get disappointed later. You didn’t have the patience to wait for the best ones to come and opted for the things which you thought were good for the time being.

I know that I gave you a list of mistakes that you did which affected me a lot but I want to assure you that I love you a lot. It’s because of you, who made me who I’m today. I learned a lot from all the mistakes you did. Time made you to go for a trial and error method and I got all the results. You gave me bitter and sweet memories which is essential for a good life.

At last, I want to tell you that I would really like to visit you but you know that it’s not possible. I will always keep you in my thoughts as you are so dear to my heart.

With love,

Your older self

Look Up To A Tree

When I was happy, I looked up to a tree

It showed me how to dance with the wind.

When I had sorrow, I looked up to a tree

It made me to hang on till the storm changed to a breeze.

When I was proud, I looked up to a tree

It taught me to stay rooted and be humble.

When everything crashed down, I looked up to a tree

I learned to be patient with the things that cannot be changed.

When I had more than what I needed, I looked up to a tree

I found that the true happiness is in giving what others need.

When I was hurt, I looked up to a tree

And it showed me that the healing was always from within.

When I felt alone, I looked up to a tree

It made me to believe in myself and to trust that I’m unique.

True love?



They say love is blind,
But why it sees only the beauty outside.
They say love gives us the purpose,
Yet, they use love for their purposes.
They say that love is unconditional,
And they rip love with all of their conditions.
They say love bears everything,
Then why does it break without even thinking.
They say that you can find love in other's eyes,
Then why do they keep on looking for other sides.
They say love heals,
Then why does it causes so much hurt.
If you find someone who says I love you,
And then, do all the second lines,
Beware of that love, my love!
Because, that love is not of the truest kind.
