It’s a journey will pass through!

Life is full of ups and downs
Sunny and raining sometimes
Full of struggles and at times calm
Bags of worries and happy loot bags
Some obligations and commitments
A constant fight for rights and right things
On top of all this life is too short they say
And sometimes you feel it’s too long
Remember to enjoy and roll over once in a while
For life is not always full of grass
There are some thorns and twigs too
Make sure they don’t get into you
As it’s a journey and we all will pass through!

The journey just began…!


The journey I took 22 years ago,
One way ticket to Toronto,
Still remember the night I landed,
With no idea where to go whom to talk to,
Cause you got to protect from strangers,
Yet a stranger helped me find a hotel,
A place where I thought through my plan,
A night changed me
From a scared to responsible,
Next day started with hunt
for place and job,
And the journey continued
from one place to the other,
One job to the other,
Learned people one by one,
On my way found some friends,
Whom you think are close were who used,
Others showed the path to liberate,
With determination and struggles,
Found new ways and new learnings,
Found a sales person inside me,
Who led to success one after the other,
Today, I look back with full of gratitude,
Humility and humanity taught love wins
No matter who you are, what you are
A journey we all have to take of our own,
From one place to the other and it goes on…!

The story of happiness!


There are vessels around us
Big and small some empty
And some full of wishes
Some are filled with tears
Some with loads of food
Yet the vessel makes noise
I am hungry, I am starving
I am unhappy, I am dying
They look colorful outside
Inside its all dark and scary
If we all share our vessels
We can share what we have
The needy can get some life
The loaded one feel not guilty
Imagine the vessels singing
It won’t be noise anymore
The vessels will be colorful
Inside and out being real
And musical with percussion
Happiness can live there too!

Let me …!

I believe I can fly,
Yes, I can at least try,
Let me study like others,
I also have my dreams,
That I want to fulfill,
Don’t cripple my wings,
Don’t stop my way,
Let me be who I am,
Don’t take my books away
Let me compete like everyone,
Let me stand on my own,
But just let me!

There’s more to her story…!


She is pure like this pretty flower,
She is smart and determined too,
She is capable and elegant indeed,
She has to work hard to be,
She is intimidating to some may be,
But her struggle is different than all,
Was she born like this? No, I would say!
Did she ask for to be born like this?
No, I would say!
Everyone sees the beauty and the outlook,
But very rare who see’s her bruises,
Everything that you see is not it,
There’s more to her story just like,
Everyone else has a story,
Don’t take her innocence for granted,
Don’t take her politeness as her weakness,
Don’t just test her patience for your sake,
Coz she has more to take on once you are done!

This beauty peaks in two weeks…


I may be like a twig short and weak,
You will judge as well for how I look,
My color, my race, my family, my city,
You will count my leaves and feel sorry for it,
Here I am for you with full of blossoms and spike,
The color, and the message to renewal as symbolic,
The fleeting nature of life, short and sweet for us,
This beauty peaks in two weeks and then tend to fall,
Such is life hence enjoy the spring which has its own beauty,
Because fragility of life, that’s my story for you all to remind,
Life is beautiful until it looks but there’s a short trip to all of this!

What’s on your mind?

My face may say something,
My mind may think different,
My expressions might scare,
My actions may be wonderful
Or even awful that some will say,
But hey, all it means what I grow
In my mind of thoughts I cultivate,
Positive or negative or neutral?
You got to think! Think! Think!!!
What I say?
