Let it whisper  ,   Let it Sing

Let it be free from within 

Let it soar up in the sky so high 

Feel free to be what’s it meant to be

My daughter just joined college so an advice to her and all the children who are taking a step out of their cosy nests and starting a new chapter in their lives. Wishing them all the success and happiness and always remember

“You will get there,

but only if you keep going “

Open your arms to this wide world

Embrace life as it comes

Someone can call it pain

but others may think it as learning

Someone can call it pleasure

but others might think it as experience

Each one his own

Keep moving Keep experiencing

Be happy Be gay and smile

Today has gone

Tomorrow will be another beautiful day

I Feel Beautiful Tonight

I feel beautiful tonight,

No cares, No fears;

Just being me in this wide world.

I feel beautiful tonight,

No airs, No scares;

And what do I hear, the music in my ears.

I am beautiful tonight,

A step, A twirl;

A little dance that I love,

I smile from ear to ear.

I feel beautiful tonight,

Love the sky, the earth,

They whisper in my ears

I am beautiful tonight.

A Reflection


Rhythm of life

This poem came out of an inspiration while I was walking at the beach (one of my favorite pastimes).

I tried to match my steps

Dragging myself to keep the pace

Dashing and running

Puffing and Panting

Forgetting to experience what was around me

The extra pace burdening me

Tiring me to my core

I felt so disheartened and disillusioned

Felt the unhappiness seep inside me

Trying to follow in someone’s footsteps

Will I ever be able to get ahead in the race of life

Will I ever be happy and joyful

I felt the need to slow down

To soak in the sun and the sand

To feel the cool breeze gushing by

To watch the ebb and the flow of the waves

Splashing and playing with the waves

And as I watched the people pass by

I felt happier and at peace

Feeling the smile spreading across my face

Wasn’t life all about

Finding your own pace

And dancing to the rhythm of life.

Perfection ? A Prison.

I tried to repair the leaks,

To try to fix it and make it new.

An arrow shot at me,

New wounds arose.

I realized,

Mending and repairing, wasn’t that what I was doing ?

Renewing my wounds wouldn’t work no more,

It wouldn’t make me whole.

I realized,

I couldn’t go on trying to make myself perfect.

And still love who i am,

So i decided to embrace the battered and imperfect me,

And glow.

From Someone to Nothing

On my spiritual journey

Sharing some internal experiences on my spiritual journey how my internal realm has changed since I started this journey three and a half years back

I saw everything slip by,

My thoughts

My relations

My habits

My memories

Some painful some happy,

I closed my eyes and cried.

Watching and wandering

My old life pass by,

The memories the thoughts that had bound me and held me

Had frozen me and made me feel icy inside (dead inside)

And what I had held on to for my dear life.

I felt sad I felt empty

Drowning with each wave

Each storm which shook me and made me feel i had no face

As each storm passed I was emptier in its wake.

Slowly life slipping through my fingers like sand and water

I could cry no more

I questioned was anything my own

But I understood that I had to let go.

I opened my eyes to see the clouds part

And a sun shining bright

And the sky so blue

And there was still a life for me in the world outside

I was still floating in its aftermath

Lighter and happier with each stroke

Glowing and Growing as I awoke

I was struck awed with the thought,

That what I held on to was the cause of the pain and the misery.

Girl on the Swing

Feeling happy and blessed to finish my first acrylic painting and a poem to go with it.

The Peace Within

She swayed with the winds

Uprooted by the storms

Not able to stand on her own

The voices outside urging her to follow and abide

Drowning the voice that was in her heart

The pulls and pushes

Each day brought

The decision was tough

Should she listen to the chatter outside

Or her heart which had always proved right

Should she stand for her ideas,unexplored and unfamiliar

A lifetime of indecision

She had come to the point

Where she had finally grown

She knew that she would always follow her heart

The happiness and joy that spread inside

She knew she was free from the storms outside
