Mask

 

Ipseity is looked down upon

As a threat to cultural norms.

You are treated as an outsider

And labeled as a snob.

 

Who is your friend here?

And who is your foe?

It is so difficult to decipher,

That you may never know.

 

In the midst of facades

And false social charms,

Can you stand your grounds

Where all seems just a farce?

 

To find a real face,

is not an easy task.

Coz it’s always well hidden

Behind a congenial mask.

Light

 

~~

 

From the wells of darkness,
To a world full of lights,
It’s not a serene drive,
To carve your own path,
From despair to delight.

 

Don’t ever give up,
On the dreams of life.
Keep your desires and hope,
Forever abundant and alive.

 

For, one gust of wind,
Is enough to change the tide.
And one twist of fate,
Can brighten up your life.

Time

 

~~

 

Between the dusk and dawn,

I was just lost in time.

In a world full of sorrow,

Nothing had been mine.

 

Rise said the sun,

Shine said the stars,

Life is just so precious,

Success is not too far.

 

With eyes on the summit,

To scale new heights.

Just spread the wings wide,

Its time to fly high.

 

~~

 

Birds of a Feather….

 

~~

 

Filled with laughter
and rejoice,
life was merry
with its youth and charm.

 


 

We sung in chorus,
the songs of life.
Friends till eternity
will reign our ties.

 


 

As the time passed,
it dispersed the flock.
Only memories remain
of the wonderful past.

The Star

 

~~

The sound of the stilettos
echoed in the aisle.
The gait of the winner
emerged in style.
 
The smile that dazzled
and head held high
with crown on the curls
waved the rising star.
 
Amidst the cheers and wishes
were celebrations abound.
What no one could see
were the tears and the scars.
 
~~

The Winner Takes It All.

 

~~

Friends turned foes
with jeers and taunts.
I still rose from the ashes
coz I had to prove them wrong.

 


Faith kept me going,
tears made me strong.
Victory is around the corner,
I shall reach there before long.

 


Deal the cards you own,
in the best possible stance.
Life is like a game of poker,
the winner takes it all.

Life is Beautiful

images-22

~~

Desires of the distant past,

are fulfilled joys today.

Gone are the days of worry,

they are swept far, far away.

 

The promise of the future,

the wishes of the heart,

I watched my dreams unfold

and it was just the start.

 

Rewards of patience reaped

when the time was right.

Life was never so beautiful,

the world was never so bright.

My Guardian Angel

~

~

The Angel in the skies,
Showered blessings on me.
With mist in my eyes,
I looked up to thee.
 
Why oh why, so long did it take?
I asked, with a voice so full of pain.
Said the Angel; it’s not an easy game,
To sway the fate and change its way.
 
The path of your life
Was obscure all the while.
I had to rewrite the destiny
To make you smile.

Sunset

Sunset

~

Sea breeze with a whiff so faint

Crimson Skies have a golden haze

Urgent waves show no restraint

I just saw ‘my world’ in your gaze.

 

On the horizon is a Sunset so grand,

I just want you to hold my hand.

Be it storm or be it tide,

I want you always by my side.
