Hushed Winds

​Because most days are like home days,

no mood to glam,

no mood to slay,

Just bury myself in books,

colours, brushes and simply spray,

wear baggy clothes,

and sing my own musings and verses,

smile as my hands move across blank pages,

create something,

that I can’t think about,

write something my heart gushes without doubts,

take notes, and

listen to tell-tales of emotions.

May be because without the Cinders , Ella wouldn’t have been the Cinderella to her Prince ,

Maybe because without being grounded,

I wouldn’t test my wings,

And so, When I’ll know I’m ready,

I will let you watch me fly, 

and soar,

and smile.

Until then, I’m the hushed winds in your sky. .

#10 Her Thoughts

Hah!There’s sunshine in her soul,

to cast out her darkness,

to let her be radiant,

let her rule her whole.
Can no one her dominate,

can no one make her a petty prey,

Because Queens are born to rule,

not be a slave.
She wasn’t forsaken,

she was let free,

by life who had a purpose 

deep in it’s stormy tranquility.
Don’t get too close,

you won’t want to burn,

Don’t get too cozy,

life’s not as predictable as the sun,

it’s not always about being the light,

it’s about the shadows 

and the dark,

how it all 

builds your might.

Sun kissed

​And when the Sun kissed her in the shadows,

All the darkness faded into a smile,

It was like butterflies dancing in her moonlight.

And when the Sun kissed her ruffled hair, 

She seemed to not care 

of the depth she was drowning in,

because as the light hit her in her nothingness,

she felt the promise of peace and serene.

Why worry?


Amidst the chaos.. Amidst the calm..
Life gets complicated.. Yet its so much fun..
I’m more than what I think, I’m more than ENOUGH..
Why worry of being burnt while facing the sun?

I thought I messed up big time,
I thought this I won’t survive,
I thought I’m suicidal, there ain’t no positive vibe,
And in it all I forgot :
Why worry walking down the tunnel, at the end of which is light?

I was remorseful of time lost and mistakes done,
It felt bitter,  I felt shunned,
I strived to be better, and from better best,
Again it slipped by me:
why worry of perfecting imperfections,  rather just be yourself?

What good did it do to worry?
What good did it do to overthink?
Did it fill you a pot of gold? Or
Your health was pink and green?
Did you manage to feel satisfied?
Did you fulfill all your hearts desires?
Or did the fear and frustrations take a toll?
And there you stand all grumpy,  desolated and belittling your soul?

If worrying would fetch us a penny,
wouldn’t we all be rich?
But alas! It degrades us uncanny,
Why worry and throw a fit?

We want them to tell us it’s okay,
We want them to tell us we aced,
We want them to appreciate our efforts,
We want them fill our buckets with praise!
We want and want and hence we worry,
But ain’t what we got enough?
Ain’t what we do, speak it’s own language?
Why worry and feel disheartened?
Had it all not let you smarten?
Didn’t it add to you an edge?
Do you still feel it was worthless with all that they say?
You still worry more about the world,  more about everything.
Why worry so much,  when one day life will end in a blink?

Nothing is permanent,  not you ,neither me
Not every time will you happily sing,
Why worry if your harp lost a string?
Can’t you fetch another?
How long will you cry and wail?
Why worry and be lost in agony?
Can’t you hear the clock tick ? See your ship sail!

Why worry about money?
Didn’t God say he would provide?
Why worry about tomorrow?
Didn’t the same Lord say
He would never abandon,
Your future is shiny and bright?
Why worry of not being successful?
Didn’t he say- He gives us hope, and will bring us prosperity?
Why worry and feel discouraged?
Will it change your fate?

Have we all not to go but to the same grave in the earth below?
Have we all not to live but merely co-exist and worry and complicate things?
Will worry fetch you love and contentment?
Will worry you befriend?
Have you not thought so much that worry causes more havoc?
Don’t you believe and trust in HIM who told you:
“Don’t worry. Dont be afraid.”
Over and over and over again.

Why worry while chasing the rainbow,
without the clouds and the rain and the sun,
will it still be the same?
