Gratitude

pexels.com

Do you see what I see,
When I see through the lens,
The lens that magnifies
The goodness amidst chaos?

Do you feel what I feel
When I am Cleansed
With the potion of kindness,
Ignoring bruises of toxic thoughts?

Yes, I am transformed,
Hammered with feathery blows
The touch of Gratitude
Which reveals the treasures I have!

I am grateful to all the people who gave so much to me in spite of my ignorance. I am grateful to all the things nature has given to me in spite of my apathy.


Though I will never be satisfied and desire for more because it is my weakness to be seduced by worldly things. And for that, forgive me. I am just a mere soul trying to outshine the dark!

Coffee with 1000 Followers

The morning comes with a new beginning, new hope, more inspiration and more positive vibes.


I couldn’t have asked more from the wonderful wordpress community for giving me 1000 followers. Let me sip my coffee which I prefer with sugar and milk and settle down with this amazing feeling, cheers everyone!


The journey so far has been more about downs than ups. I started blogging back in 2015, wrote for 2-3 months and then the gap of almost 5 years, got stuck in a rat race and struggles of life.

I am still struggling but maybe getting to see the bigger picture. You see I use the word ‘ maybe’ a lot because I am so uncertain about things. Many will think how confused I am though they will agree that-


Life is all about uncertainty. One moment you are full of happiness, the other you struggle with grief.


What I am on the scale of cosmos? Nothing, just a whisk of time fading with every single second.

So I prefer to flow with this wind and expecting every possibility of life to face.


This is a new beginning, a new challenge, a new opportunity to grow.

All the Light we Cannot See

Craving

Beyond the mountains of grief,
There’s an ocean of Ecstasy.
Beyond the rubbles of my failed endeavours,
My soul craves for that vibrant Felicity
!

Maybe there’s an ocean of blue,
With whom I can relate to!
Maybe in those depths of afflictions
I can find my divine benediction!

Let me struggle
In these swamps of disaster.
Let me find my way
Against these Howling gales
.

Till then wait for me
If you are already through.
Till then breath in the valley
And enjoy the view!

Ikigai: The Japanese Secret to a Long and Happy Life

Mother Nature

Humanity flourish in her lap,
Every joy blooms in her warmth.
Her glistening presence, her every giggle,
Ride on soothing winds to caress our restless souls.

O Mother, your divine beauty
Fills my heart with sheer bliss.
Your selfless love is beyond anyone to fathom.
You still holds me with your ailing grasp!

What have I done, O Mother!
To infuse pain in your veins.
I choked your lungs, I exploited your love,
Ignored your tears but you still persist to give!

Save the life infusing aroma
Of the wet earth in those rains by saving her!
Save the existence of all of us
By saving her soul flowing in our veins!

The Black Iron

He has been bent,
He has been forged,
He has been hammered like a
hot iron to obey the blacksmith.

How much he can take
Before his soul rages embers?
How far he can go
With his bones chiselled to weakness?

But fortitude is his strongest suit,
No fire can turn him into weak ashes,
Nothing can shake his unabated spirit,
‘cause he is an iron who absorbs thousand blows!

100 Selected Poems, John Keats: Collectable Hardbound edition

A Handful of Stardust

Self clicked

A potpourri of grains rustled
With afflictions in a void, so vast.
The grains of the stardust
Glistened with pride,
They were all alike.
Those similar grains of stardust
Contrived humanity who made boundaries
The divisions of religion, the difference of colour,
Black, brown, white, yellow.
Everyone will go down the same drain
To become the similar
Handful of stardust again!

Together We Can

Self clicked

Limped, Vanquished
I treaded among the rubbles
Of million dreams, lying
Shattered around me.

I yearned for a Distant dream
But my world looked grim
Then a voice I heard, a hand
On my shoulders, “together we can!”

Answering some questions


What would you like to convey if you become the voice of Earth?


(Voice of Earth) I have seen many chaos, actually I was born out of chaos. I have seen many mass extinctions but it will be my biggest loss If I lose you, Humans! I will continue to thrive even after you, so don’t destroy yourself. It is my humble request.


What do you do for relaxation?


Reading books and listening soundtracks. Currently I am reading “All the Light We cannot see” by Anthony Doerr.


How do you attract new readers?


Well, you have to be consistent with your blog. Your content should be unique, eclectic and deep. That’s my method.


Favourite genres of music?


I love soundtracks a lot. It churns emotions in me. My favourite soundtracks are-

On the nature of daylight by I think Max Richter. It has been played in movies like Shutter Island and Arrival.
No time for caution, our destiny lies above us from Interstellar by Hans Zimmer.
The other genres which I like are Hard Rock, Punk rock, Alternative Rock. I also hear Bollywood sometimes.


Thank you for reading!

Hang on My Patience

Self clicked

Sailing precariously
On the surface.
Stuck in the dark swamps
Of restlessness.
Intimidated by the howls
Of my raging heartbeat.
Oh my patience!
Hang in there On the fringes
‘cause it is you my Angel
Who will show me the light
At the brink of
my dwindling hope
At the far end of my
Howling nightmare!

Poverty Speaks

Life has been quite awful for many people these days but nothing Worst than the adversities of the poor labourers in India.


They have been over utilised, exploited by the capitalists for building their empire and now they have been dumped on the road to suffer with no food, no help.


All they want is to return home when the world is stagnant with no work around. My heart grieves for them.


Poverty speaks….


My sweat built
Your soaring Castles
I gulped tremendous pain
To Fulfil your worldly desires
And I didn’t complain
Even for a second
For the tiny bread
You thrown at me in return
But now when I want you
To stand by me
You only discarded me
I am bruised,
But I have not lost hope
I will walk forever on the road
The place where my heart is
The place called home.
My sufferings are not new
May not shake your inner core
Because maybe I am poor
And poverty is only meant
To lie on the road and suffer!

Be grateful to what you have and be an Angel for the needy!
