Appropriation!

For that was taught in school and I’m a grown up now.

Running by the clock, ticking with its hands

Looking at the hour glass, the falling of sands.

I flip it around to save another hour

This life seems rather little sour.

Running around, dancing onto someone’s song

Wondering when and what went wrong.

Thoughts and ideas just remain in mind

What’s on paper is perhaps unkind.

Trying to explore, travel a new place

Looking for a room, a little mind space.

To disentangle the entangled thoughts of myself

To let the knowledge elf out from one of the shelf.

To be who I am, to do what I want

They say it’s an excuse but I am an infant.

I don’t deny, they have reasons to complain

But this is who I am, perhaps insane.

I can’t agree to be someone else and gain affection

They might not know it, but that’s called appropriation.

Younger Self!

We often follow the values that were instigated into us in our childhood.

Talking to my younger self today

Looking at myself back in the way.

Nothing is changing everyday

But as I look back, time has passed away.

The time that had a treasure box

Of tight hugs and a paradox.

Paradox of so many realities

Away from accustomed formalities.

As I grow up I relate to mom and dad

As a kid too, I wish at times I had.

It’ll never be easy to be in their shoes

As a young girl, I loved moms big shoes.

Going back in time, regretting a little too

Of mistakes I made and for whining so much too.

But today when I see this grown up girl in me

I think of how years passed and how I became me.

Getting to know myself better I had a word

With my younger self about this world.

Asking that kid to forget about the pasts

And to think about all the treasure that lasts.

And as a result I’ll run back into dad’s arms again

The way I did as a young child then.

I’ll kiss my mom and bring back the lost time

For my younger self knows it was pretty sublime.

Somewhere!

Striving to reach a destination I’m not sure even exists.

Looking for a quiet place

A place for mind space.

A place where my soul is at peace

Where I have my own think piece.

A place where my dreams are understood

Where I’m fearless and stand withstood.

A somewhere that defines my mind state

Somewhere I can find my imaginative state.

A path for my perseverance

A plateau for thought clearance.

A home for family and love

A sky where flies the white dove.

Looking for a quiet place

A place for mind space.

The Life Ahead!

Because, I’m made for more! 🙂

Yes, there’s a lot to do today

But it’s a long day anyway.

Can I put that phone away?

Can I go out to dance and sway?

Swearing on myself to live

But I don’t even have the time to give?

What kind of a living is this?

When I can’t call my mom and just miss?

A moment of joy stays forever

How many moments do I remember?

So many years of life yet a few memories

So much time has passed but no stories.

It’s revolutionary how people live their lives

I don’t want to just be remembered as archives.

All of us get the same 24 hours

And all of us have some special powers.

Let’s make it large while we have this time

For this is the time that will make us sublime.

Contentment!

What’s life without happiness?

1.jpg

Why is happiness so tough to achieve?

What is that we have to give to receive?

Receive the satisfaction, the joy?

Why can’t we always enjoy?

They say, those always happy are lazy

But what is life like if one is sad or dizzy?

Yes, we should break our mental barriers

Break our comfort zones without being worriers.

But what’s more important is to enjoy the life we live 

The comfort we’ve got and the love we give.

It’s important to know the value of our life

More than reaching out for more with strife.

Essential to know sorrow and enchantment

And accept life the way we get it, with contentment.

Living!

For today, when I woke up I didn’t want to exist but live.

Work, eat and sleep

Waking up on alarm beep.

Run, earn, look good

Don’t smile, wear that hood.

Don’t laugh, don’t feel

Be hurt, but don’t heal.

Don’t take a break

Time to be awake.

Don’t explore, no curiosity

Understand your work intensity.

It’s time to sleep, go to bed

Listen, obey, don’t use your head.

Mind language, don’t take much time

Be the best! Be sublime!

Leaving this existence far behind

I come out as strong and kind.

Keeping that fear away

And making special my today.

With taking less and more of giving

Now I guess, my life I’m living.

Constant, Consistent And Continuous!

There are certain things in life, you just can’t change.

I know change too in life is constant

But the way I look at you won’t change.

I know at times people become distant

But this love we have is too strange.

This extreme affinity I couldn’t have shared

If it weren’t sharing with you

The love, the laughter, the conversations at infinity

Wouldn’t be this easy for me if it weren’t with you.

Time has flown so swift and smooth

And I feel as if I met you just yesterday

I’m not just saying this to soothe

But I don’t know, if I can be without you today.

Life has been both cranky and calm

Since the time you’ve held my hand

But you never let go of my palm

Whether I was in soaked boots or sunny sand.

It’s commendable how you’ve loved me

And how deeply you care

There aren’t many who’d wish to love me

And have a piece of their soul to share.

I know my ways to love you are distinct

They aren’t so expressive and illustrious

I know my love is not so succinct

Yet, it’ll always remain constant, consistent and continuous.
