One Step At A Time..

I grew up learning that

No matter how hard you fall flat

You got to stand still

Continue with stronger will

As every moment passes by

Adds new lessons sometimes wild

So I never gave up on hope

I smiled in order to cope

 

I wished to just flow

And spread smiles with some hope

No wonder how you broke

hid the pieces with the cloak

To hold the world around

‘Coz that’s when you confound

There’s a child inside

Who doesn’t want to die

Unknown to the knowns

like the locker of the Davy Jones

 

One day life will be pride

Listening to this inner voice

And the dreams it once shared

Fictional, but back then i didn’t care

The dream of living love

Diving high as two doves

Holding hands with flying wings

Resting and fighting beings

Creating new lives

Binging to play kites

 

Growing old with pitfalls

Yet rising above towards the stars

Building home, our little spot

Within the woods at hill-top

Grazing the little calves

And playing with our dogs

Teaching a bunch of kids

Of the near village called mids

Watching the dusk and dawn

Dancing and singing loud

 

But darling what I have been

Grown up dreaming

Has caused me a big fall

And i don’t see how to let go this long haul

The wounds are deep and scars

Are open to dust and flaws

So I try to spread smiles

With a little hope to hung by

To the people close to me

I came back smarter they believe

 

To stay alert I don’t calm

At the face of truth I am alarmed

The dream has turned its back

And has been the trojan attack

I don’t see the sunrise

Just left with emotions deep inside

I try to quiet them

Kill or silent them

And be less than a human

To protect self from demon

Mind open but heart closed

Words playing but feelings shorn

 

But,

I grew up learning that

No matter how hard you fall flat

You got to stand still

Continue with stronger will

As every moment passes by

Adds new lessons sometimes wild

But I don’t know if it’s the time

To give up hope and let feelings die

So I smile for another mile..

Take one step at a time and one step at a time yet another at a time..

 

 

 

 

 

With a grain of salt..

With the whites and blacks, let the greys origin.

With the hollows and flat, let the plates merge in.

With the whisper and noise, let the silence say.

With the snow and fog, let the clouds rain.

With the depths and highs, let the plains await.

With the impulse and values, let the wise dominate.

With the myths and evidence, let the imagination abide.

With the intention and action, let the integrity play.

With the truth and false, let the perception embrace.

With the love and hate, let the peace create.

With a grain of salt, let the lives stay.

 

MIT-TE SHABD

Shabdon ke jaal mein khud ko hai baandha

Anjaane mein dheeme dheeme khud ko khud se hai khoya

 

vishwaas, saath, pyaar or bharosa

Kabhi khud ko lapata toh kabhi khud mein kisi aur ko hai paya

 

Ansuni aawaaz cheekh rhi hai

Mere hi shabd ab mujhe bezubaan kar rhe hai

 

Dabi hui si khwaahish aaj marr rhi hai

Khud ki paribhaasha bhi ab mitt rhi hai…
