When Expectations Make A Sound

Because it’s when the small becomes too big, And the big becomes too small, That the expectations set in And you lose it all. It’s not just you, And not just them. It’s a collective mess up That loses the most precious of gems. There wasn’t a solution That she couldn’t find. But there came…

The strongest of them all. That’s my father, right there!

A true gentleman that you’d find, Sophisticated, wise and kind. Full of warmth and care, And invaluable advise. Yes, he’s the one always by our side. He has his days, With rays so sharp and bright. We go through it in a daze, Only to know it’s his own amusing maze. Hasn’t ever looked for…

The one that’s always going to stay. Happy Birthday Mom!

We’ve had our differences, We’ve had some fights. Going through it all, We turned things bright. You became the one I’d turn to, Every time I came away with no clue. You became the person I looked up to, Every time I needed to know what’s true. Because, You’re brighter than us all, Yet calmer…

She.

She’s looking for someone. Someone to take care of her, someone to tell her she’s perfect. Someone who can be with her through thick and thin. Little did she realise that this someone was with her all along. This someone was no one else but ‘she’. 

Don’t Need A Break.

There are times when I know I just want to go away for a vacation – a pretty long one, if you ask me truthfully. But there is a reason I don’t need a break from life right now and there’s a reason why I am not going to for a while.

I grew up, didn’t I?

Life is considerably funny. There are times when your near and dear ones tell you how you’re their little kid and the same moment, you’re expected to act like a grown up for the outside world. Well, I certainly did grow up, didn’t I?

It takes what it takes

Dreams don’t just come true in a day. You need to work hard; rather, you need to work harder than you ever thought you would. It really does take what it takes to make things work for you. They’re your dreams and there is no way someone else can run them for you. 

Forever (or not)

“Life is fragile, handle it with a prayer.” Amidst all the posts talking about the Nepal earthquake – how many people died, how many building collapsed, what remains, what doesn’t and what’s being done to help the people there, you’re often left to wonder, is there any such thing as certainty? Browsing through the various…

Crossroads

Standing at a crossroad, Wondering where each would go. Will the end of this one Be the beginning of joy, Or will it bring sorrow? The answers are veiled by uncertainty And I still stand here, Calculating possibilities. Slipping into the oblivion, I randomly pick a road. And all it does, Is lead to another…

The color white

Today’s fad, A color that is far from sad. Even though associated with death, There’s no other color as warm as breath. From curtains to linen to daily wear, In our house, it’s everywhere. You may think we have lost all sense, To use a color that is death’s pretense. Here’s the argument from the…

The sign off

The sign off. The final goodbye. Probably the last time I see most of you. From the opportunity that walked in, To the next thing that walked out, Good or bad, Grateful! To all the times we have spent, To all the memories we made, Good or bad, Cheers! For all that you’ve taught me,…

Guts over fear

“Life is a roller coaster ride. Scream or enjoy the ride.” Whoever said that life isn’t easy, is absolutely right. It is that roller coaster ride that you can’t excuse yourself out of. It is that ride that doesn’t come with a set of safety instructions. You just need to do what you have to…
