Sail on this River

I hope you fight till darkness turns to light
Have a sense to stand out wrong from right
And when the storm comes, you don’t avoid
But you go out and dance till it dies

I hope the child in you lives forever
You find your friends and play out the sadness together
And when its time to say goodbye, you say your prayers
Wish them happiness and sail on the river

I hope you appreciate your presence in this world
Treat everyone with love and respect
Remember, kindness and sympathy is what brings joy
Money is temporary , just a scam- a ploy



Each day I see you
Like I haven’t seen you before
You look new to me
From head to toe


The eyes, the lips
They shine and glow
When sun looks at them
Through our bedroom window
You wake up and pull your hair back
Take the rubber band of your wrist
 and tie me a pony
I lay on my back throughout this magic
Only to wake up to your kiss
The shine transfers into me
And I start my day  with ecstasy

Jinxed Happiness

I am happy in your happiness
But scared to express it sweetheart
Don’t want to taint it
Don wan to jinx it

Have had hard time knowing
And understanding
What it means being happy

Had it all once,
Had it all gone once
Don’t wan to repeat the same
Thing twice

So have faith and know that I am happy
In your happiness
Just that to express it
I feel crippled

Find Your Paradise

The purpose of life
Is too look beyond walls
The hurdles, the road blocks

Keep moving, running
As no good can come
From being dead at one place

Keep faith
Tides will offer opportunities
To find a beacon of hope
When you are stranded in an island

Learn from past
Even if it hurts
Don’t ignore it
There will come a point
When the hurtful past
Will metamorphose into a beautiful present

Look around
Take a breather
Life moves fast, real fast
Step out of your shell
and for a while, just for a while
look around

and stick with your choice
Most people falter because they are afraid to choose
The comfort that comes from not choosing
Not risking becomes detrimental for them
Without them knowing

One thing I know for sure
That there is no perfect time to wait for
Regret will come down the line
For a lot of things
But mainly for the things
You did not do
And not for the things you did

Find a friend
Feel closer to people
Empathize with their pain
And you will find your pain
Melt away

Live in the moment
Seek happiness in the moment
Come out of day dreaming
Enjoy your moments
And become part of a paradise
It is not a place
But a feeling
Of belonging, being part
Of a moment


The fire within
burning low
lately, these dreams
have been hollow

Once they sparked,
burnt bright
like a rainbow
these were multicolored

Thoughts ignited happiness
the days were shiny
now they lie in a box
shut down, cryin

Belief is firm though
solid as a rock
these dreams will take me far
and the clock will turn back

You are Branded

Life they say is what you make of it, what do you do when you are grieving
You know for sure that; smile and the world smile with you
grief and you grief alone

What happens when there is contentness
in grieving, in pain, in all the suffering you go through
You know you are scared, of tainting happiness
hence you leave happiness alone

You live in dejection, in dispirited heart
Enjoy the pain it causes you , it brings out the best of art in you
you live with smile on your face, for the world to see
and keep the innerself unkown

You think what’s the point, in revealing what’s within
when on earth has this helped anyone
there exists more detractors, more who brand you as negative thinker
but you still hang on to them, and don’t disown

They are all you got, in the world that don’t get you
the place, the time all such variables
exist to give your presence a meaning
little they know, that you have already
defined yourself, already carved the path
for the past and the future you have already sown

You appreciate both sides of the world
your range of emotional experience surpasses theirs
They pretend that they are happy, they pretend that they are content
and it marks the death of their progress, because the true happiness
this pretense has never known

YOu are what you are, you did not ask for lord to be this way
you take it, deal with it, and make the best out of it
just because you are down, doesn’t mean you are not happy
As what is happiness if not a hint of sadness
You value both sides of the coin, and none of these emotions
you have outgrown.
