 A girl like you

A girl like you
with a past like that,
A girl like you
with the remnants of a family scandal
from a previous generation 
looming over your head ever since birth
carries the opportunity 
to restore your family’s pride, 
they said.

A girl like you
with your present in your hands,
A girl like you
full of curiosity, dreams and hopes
carries the responsibility 
to go live your life to the fullest,
no one ever said.

For years, I let myself be weighed down 
by a past that was never mine to carry.
For you see,
a girl like me from a past like that
doesn’t deserve happiness in the present.
Or so I was made to believe.

Today, as I turn 25 years old
with nothing but an obstinate soul
to my credit,
I scream out loud.
I SCREAM
THAT A GIRL LIKE ME
WITH A HEART LIKE MINE
DESERVES THE ENTIRE WORLD
IN THE CUSP OF HER PALMS.
I SCREAM, THIS. IS. MY. LIFE!
AND I HAVE EVERY RIGHT TO LIVE IT TO MY SOUL’S SATISFACTION AND LIVE I SHALL!

I’ll love you till my last breath

You were looking at me with a blissful gaze.
While I was enjoying raindrops all over my face.

As the raindrops rolled towards my lips.
My love drenched heart just felt your kiss.

My heart froze deep looking into your eyes.
It felt the love of a heart so wise.

One day I wish you’ll be mine.
N we’ll celebrate our love with the cheers of wine.

In your arms I’ll love to die.
You are n will be my honey pie.

Together we are a couple so great.
Oh baby. I’ll love you till my last breath.

Family Unity

A generation started so long ago
With strength in every thing we know
A binding towards love and respect
Unifying all goodness that comes next
With caring and love to follow through
Revealing all wonders of family new
Keeping the closeness pure and true
A lasting bond of more than a few
Never forgotten with times that bind
Unity of family should be pure and kind

A New Day

Make a fresh start to a new day
Encouraging all goodness to stay
Thinking of things anew and true
Bringing out the best in you
To enjoy wonderful things around
Appreciating the day you found
What a beauty each day beholds
Just as we have always been told
With greetings we will often say
Hello! And- have a nice day.

Mind ,Body, and Soul

Our minds, so powerful and true
Being all that it could be to renew
Imaginative thoughts given to all
Showing the beauty of things we recall
The body full of movements with grace
Reaching places at its own pace
Coping with situations we may face
All things adjusting in its rightful place
The soulfulness of awareness and serenity
To accept and remember through our destiny
Growing stronger with all goodness around
Never lost in time, but always to be found
All working together towards one goal
The renewal of mind, body, and soul.

Mother the Great

My mother is great who loves me
My mother is brave who saves me
My mother is wise who gave me wisdom
My mother is a teacher who taught me
My mother is a friend who accompanies me
My mother is intelligent who understands me
My mother sleeps less to cook and feed me
My mother waits for me when I am late from school
My mother cures me when I suffer
My mother prays for my better prospects

Fear of the World

A dark sea churns in my chest,
I feel like I’m losing breath,
Fear clogs up my throat,
In anxiety’s chokehold

Deep breath in and out comes choppy both ways
I want to scream! Should I pray?
Practically shaking
Out the window goes rational thinking,
Wondering, wondering
Worst scenarios playing

What if? What if? The room is too small
Or I’m too big I don’t know I don’t know
Help me! Help me! Please don’t touch me

I’m surrounded yet isolated
I think my friends are secretly bored of me,
My mother never wanted me,
Father left me,
Brother hates me

All that’s left is me
I’m scared, I’m scared
Of myself and of the world
Who am i? Who am i?
Everyone else seems to know except i

Why? I ask, why?
Failure encloses me in folds of cold darkness
My heart begins to beat more not less

It’s as though I captured
A bird and locked it away in my
Chest. Beating, banging, struggling to escape
Locked in my mind I slowly suffocate.

Daddy, I trusted you

Daddy I trusted you to catch me
You let me crash and burn
Daddy I love you
But you still walked away
Daddy I miss you
Yes I sound insane
Daddy I hate you
No I’ll never be the same
Why did you leave me?
Why didn’t you fight?
Was I not important enough to
Continue to be in your life?.

You and me

You and me were the best of friends
Who had big brown eyes and brown hair too
When the sun shined and smiled we did too
We had a smile as big as what some called the great west Nile
We shared the same veins and the same beats to our hearts
When you blinked I peeked when you sang I whispered
It was tough for me when you left me here, but always will I remember
You and me were the best of friends.

Angels fly in the sky

Angels fly in the sky
Not visible and shy

Perform duties on command
Have no desire & no demand

Out of them four are major
Seek to deliver on order

One is for the books
Message to messenger looks

Second is on pouring rains
Earth to fertile for grains

Third is on taking life
Without weapon or knife

Fourth is ready with sure
To destroy earth to sky sure

I’ll be there for you

I’ll keep you safe
I’ll keep you warm
I’ll be here for you
When you wake at dawn

I’ll always be with you
Throughout the day
Holding your hand
To show you the way

I’ll be by your side
When ever you need
A shoulder to cry on
In your hour of need

I’ll be there for you
However long it takes
I’ll be happy for you
Although my heart breaks

Wishing someday
We will be together
Living our dream
Forever and ever.

Tomorrow never come

Tomorrow never come.
Adorable sun never set.
But come if you will never harm,
And set if you will never hurt.
Terrors of this evil world,
Cruel and wickedness of beings
Leave me nervous and overwhelmed.
I would fly if I had wings.
Death is no longer remarkable.
Death of my fellows terrifies me.
Youngsters’ death ain’t remarkable.
Who knows? Maybe I’m the next.
I gotta pray, obey and prepare.
Since death is a snare.

My Love Shubh

My love story in my poem.
He calls me jaanu. I’m calling him baby.
He loves me much. I’m loving him too much.
He think about me. I’m thinking about him.
One day he says he can’t live without me.
I’m saying it’s also impossible for me.
And some months later.
Heartbroken. And his name called by me heart-breaker.
He said give me a break and don’t text again. Goodbye.

YOU

When I am sad you make me happy;
When I am mad you make me laugh
You make me believe and not give up;

You were always there when there wasn’t anyone,
You show me what love means
And that makes me believe love exist

When the sky turns gray you show me hope
I want to hold you tight and never let you go
For your presence complete me

You support me whenever I am in tears
When I need a hand you are there to hold my hands
If we are apart you call me day by day

We talk all day and all night long
Even we are near or totally out of sight
And that’s make me uncomfortable without

If I need someone to talk to
You are always lend your ears and listen word by word
Whenever I am lost you show me the way

Then I trusted you with my closest eye
It doesn’t need me time to give all my trust
For you deserve to be

Till I wake up one day losing my pledge
I don’t mind you enter in my world
For you change my life

How I wish I can keep you much longer
For I find happiness and shelter being with you
I love you and I will always do even we are apart

A love that will always stay
Though world never let us to make it real.

TRUE LOVE Exist

How come you walk away from someone you love
And decided to turns as like nothing happen
How come you opened a locked door
And closed in one as strong at a time.

I can still remember the image of your face
The moment you said “We are going to stay forever and ever”
For we uttered such sweetest words
Now, I wonder how this could be.

Does forever and ever are just words?
You made me as a whole
And showed me how to love in unconditional
Yet, you are crossing your words

You are perfect in my eyes
And no one else could ever makes me feel this way
I could not just compare you in anyone in this world
You showed me that TRUE LOVE exist

There, I thought, I finally found someone true
Yet, I was wrong and wrong again
How could you break a heart that beats you alone?
My love for you just won’t die down easily.

I wish you would open your eyes and dare to look at me
And hear “I love you and I don’t want to let you go”
But it seems you don’t even care
Just everything goes shambles without you

I just wish I could learn to forget
To forget the image of your smile and be deaf of your cracks
You taught me to handle when everything goes tough
But you forget to teach me to stand still whenever you’re gone

I know I was been even more tough to be drive
But, I tried my best to change and seem my best not enough
Yet, it’s too late, you already blow it away
It seems you are content to left me and walk far

You even doubt when I said I love you, please DON’T!
I may be even more regimented
But it doesn’t mean I don’t love you
I love you more than you’ll ever know

But, now you simply changed
That breaks my heart in pieces
An ink pot of tears as I write this thought
Each word within is equal to one tear drop.

Yet, despite of all we’ve been through
I can’t learn to hate and forget you
Just imagining the image of your face and
hear your cracks
All anger is gone.
