Do you see me? Standing on the side, Without any movements. May be I'm just a pole, With a bulb on my head. With no special traits to attract, But to just give all the light that I can. When you struggle in darkness, To show you the way,to avoid any harm. So the next time you pass by, At the very least, can you acknowledge my existence? Do you see me now? -JMJ
Walking alone, Tired and fed up on herself, She felt hopeless, On her way back home, She found chaos everywhere, Not only around her, But also in her mind.
Shouting with excitement that her mama is home, Her little daughter opened the door when she rang thebell, Seeing her mama all exhausted, And offering to give a head massage with her little fingers, The daughter smiled pouring out all her love and care, And she found her little piece of heaven, On her daughter's lap. -JMJ
In your eyes, I saw my life, Blossoming like a fragrant flower, With all its beauty and elegance, Like a queen with all her grace. In your eyes, I saw that flame, Which burnt my eyes to find a way to the heart, The light which brightened my soul, The fire which engulfed me whole. In your eyes, I saw lyrics of a beautiful song, Bringing rain to a deserted heart, A melody, so divine soothing my body and mind, The music which unknotted emotions of all kind. In your eyes, I saw myself, With well guarded walls,protecting myself from another hurt, Scarred and bruised from old deep wounds, Standing tall with my perfectimperfections. -JMJ
She saw herself in a castle surrounded by all the courtiers. In the mirror, which was placed right in the centre of her bedroom, she found out that she was the princess. They asked her to leave the place as it was too risky to stay there. It was a fight or flight situation and she was a fighter. She would never leave anyone behind.
Knowing her very well, one of her advisor handed her an egg. She gave him a perplexed look. What was this all about? He told her that the enemies had already reached the gate and she should protect that egg from any harm. That was her duty towardsthe kingdom.
So,she ran as fast as she could keeping that egg safely in one hand and holding the sword in another. While running, she developed an attachment towards that egg as if it was something which belonged to her. It gave her a purpose to live and fight with the enemies with all her courage and strength.
In that dark night, where the moon also forgot to show herself, princess ran towards the battlement to reach the tower. She tripped on something and the egg fellfrom her hand. She screamed out of fear and pain. While falling from the height, the egg cracked and she saw a beautifulbaby. A human baby from an egg!!!
It was quarter to four in the morning. When I had woken up from the sleep all panicked and worried, I found myself all wet in my sweat after aterrible fight in the dream.Correction… Nightmare!
I still don’t understand why on the earth I was protecting an egg and why would a human baby hatch from it!! Any explanation or suggestions are welcomed.
Please leave your comments on the post as I would really love to read them.
Fallen leaves lying down in disgrace, While waiting to be crumbled and crushed by others, They feel the ground, so cold and dead, And see the grey sky with no rayofhope. They remember the spring when they were new and fresh, So beautiful, green and tender, They were the best companions of the tree whom they adored, And shared everything with each otherso that they couldgrow.
Then came the summer where they loved to give shelter, To everyone who came to them from the scorching sun, Or from the downpour in June, Their compassion and care helped others to live, love and breed. In autumn, they brought colors into life, The trees adorned them like precious ornaments, Enjoying everyone's attention and praise, They were at their peak. Then, they started to fall, Some even didn't try, But others gave a fight with the wind, Not willing to let go off that tiny little connection with their mate.
Lying on the ground they can see the bare tree, their old companion, The squirrels, birds and the insects to whom they gave shelters to, And the people who found shade under them too. So now, they are waiting for winter eagerly, To cover themselves with snow, To erase all the memories, To forget and to be forgotten. -JMJ
When the night falls, Sun leaves you and the darkness starts to fill your eyeballs, When you stumble on every rock on your way, All alone on a road in a land far far away, When all you can hear are the screams of stillness, And you find signs of increasing frailness, Open your eyes and look in the sky, As the moon and stars are not saying you goodbye, Feel the ground, And walk as if you own the land, Listen to the sound of wind in the trees, The music of the rustling leaves, Settle your nerves, Because you are a part of this powerful universe. -JMJ
