Drafts of Life

26 April 2021 at 07:44

Unsent message

Well framed emails

Revised too many times

Yet saved as drafts

Confessions to make

Feelings to express

Conversations all set

But they never leave the head

Bound to happen

To hit send someday

Yet isn’t it great

The power to hold back for a bit

Take all the time you need

But you have to hit send

Cause drafts do no good

Till you let them go

Beauty in Diversity

8 January 2021 at 06:16

390K species of flora

8.7M species of fauna

So different from one another

Yet bounded in a world with each other

Beauty of the cherry blossom

So unlike that if the rare orchids

Poles apart from one another

But together make the world better

Easy to accept

The distinction in plants

But too hard to do

The same for humans

Welcome the unlike specie

Accept the divergent amidst

Cause the oddballs, the freaks

Are all part of the society

Open your arms to the world outside

Embrace the misfits

And learn to love

Let eccentric become unique

Cause there’s beauty in diversity

The center of universe

29 December 2020 at 05:33

A speck in the cosmos

Just a collection of atoms

What is it you pride?

Why hold yourself above all?

They say don’t be the center of attention

Take everyone in consideration

The world doesn’t orbit around you

And it’s time you realize it

But while the moon circles the earth

And the earth, the sun

Relativity says the earth’s at rest

And that motion is subjective

Be the center of your universe

Your relative rest

Let your world revolve around you

Even if you are revolving in someone else’s

Be your protagonist

While being someone’s wingman

Yes, your world orbits around you

It’s yours for a reason

Tempered Glass

1 December 2020 at 10:41

Often ignored

The most important part of the phone

Fall and crack

Yet leave the phone intact

After severe blows and great falls

It’s the time when it’s replaced

That the phone’s at its weakest

And a single fall will lead to pieces

We are but the phone

And our walls the glass

Absorbing all our blows

And saving us from the fall

It’s when we rebuild them

Too broken to go on

That a single word can break us

And bring our world apart

They say bring down the walls

And let out the emotions

But are you ready to buy a phone

Without the tempered glass?

A weaver’s mess

10 November 2020 at 05:07

Interlacing two yarns

Giving rise to a cloth

A mishmash of threads

It is a weaver’s mess

Yet there’s something so appealing

About the tangled disarray

About a beauty outshining

The clutter that there is

So similar to life

Full of chaos and regret

But it’s time that we weave

The yarn ourselves

To make a cloth of elegance

To wear with pride

To embrace our mistakes

And find beauty in the mess

Wings in Chains

25 August 2020 at 07:04

Sleepless nights

Tossing and turning

Endless thoughts

Of what could have been

Parsing each fallacy

Over thinking each fight

The past moves on

But leaves us behind

Shackles of past

So hard to break

But one can’t fly

With wings in chains

Letting go is hard

But freedom is beautiful

Life is too short to think

Of what’s already gone

Chained wings

Head in sand

28 July 2020 at 04:48

Don’t be an ostrich

Don’t bury your head

Don’t hide from danger

Don’t ignore the bad

But what’s so bad

In stepping back

In not facing everything

Like it’s the biggest deal in life

Cause sometimes it’s best

To just let it go

To not give a damn

To every single blow

It’s good to know the bad

But it’s okay not to act

It’s okay to not care

And it’s okay to hide

Because it’s just life

The blame game

21 July 2020 at 11:08

Don’t burst crackers

They pollute the environment

Don’t watch television

It’s just garbage

Oh! You have a headache

Must be that phone

β€œKids these days”

Everyone loves to taunt

How are we to blame

For a mess you made

Crackers are tradition

Was that not what you said

We are just cleaning up

A mess you made

You birthed technology

And now crib at it’s flaws

Next time before accusing

Remember these words

β€œKids do as they see”

So look in the mirror

That’s the person to blame

Love yourself

8 July 2020 at 03:28

She looks in the mirror

But doesn’t like what she see

She overthinks every photo

Before she presses delete

She alters her hair twenty times

Still doesn’t think it’s good enough

She looks at her figure

And wishes she were slimmer

She cribs of not finding love

And of bullies

And their mean words

But who’s fault is it after all?

How do you expect someone to love

What you yourself hate

How do you ignore mean words

If you think they are true

No one can do you any harm

Unless you harm yourself too

Love your flaws

They make you you

And it’s time to finally fall in love with you

What if they never died?

β€œAnd so there was victory of good over evil”

But did you ever wonder why

It’s the good that always won

Or is it the other way round

Are they good just cause they won?

Because isn’t it just a perception

The good and the evil

Let’s be honest

We loved Angelina in Maleficent

Cause it’s always those who live

Who get to tell the story

Ever wondered if

Aladdin was written by Jafar

Or Harry Potter by Voldy

It’s the living who write

Give words to their tale

Maybe Scar was not that bad

And Cindy not the goody two shoes

Because life is nothing

But a perception

There is no good or evil

It’s just a suggestion
