Life is mostly about
paying bills and dying
cooking, lots of it,
eating, crying
it is also a lot about dreams
seeing them and flying
and sometimes landing flat on your face
while trying
but then I would be lying
if I do not give enough credit
to those occupying
the space in my heart
the ones I return to after trying
and the ones who accept me whether I succeed or fail.

Will dark drive out the dark?

dark

When you are feeling lost
and there seems no hope
you don’t get answers from inside
and there is none outside that can help you cope.

When their darkness is starting to match yours’ frequency
and there is resonance
everything may collapse
once you slip into helplessness.

You stand there hoping for dark to drive out the dark
simply not seeing that it won’t be alright
their darkness can never drive out your darkness
it is time you find your light

and your light should be so greater
than their darkness combined
that it just doesn’t heal you
even their darkness sublimes.

Burning the boats

boats

I stand on the riverside
and I see multiple islands
and also multiple boats
Having the privilege of choice
there are many that I can board
and also come back to
where I started from
I will still have the same silver spoon
they once put in my mouth.

There is an island of passion
one of responsibility
then there are many more
of various dreams that I see.

Having the privilege of choice
I know I can always come back to where I started from
but as the years pass
I get a feeling, strong
that of all the boats that I will take
based on my journey
my future will shape
so even when I am blessed with the privilege of choice
I wish to step back for a moment
listen to my own voice
and for once
take only one boat
and burn it down when I reach the other side
and somehow
make it all right.

Everything’s gonna be alright

Yes, you wanted that job real bad
and you are still hoping for that dream to come true
and it hasn’t happened yet.

Yes, you expected happiness after all that sorrow
and you have been struggling hard to find happiness
and it hasn’t found its way yet.

Yes, you tried your best
you have failed and you are waiting for success
and it is nowhere to be seen.

Yes, you are a bit tired now
you want to have all those things you wanted
and they are still miles away from you.

Yes, it does seem that there is no hope
that it is dark all the way
and that light won’t be found.

When you are faced with such times
remember that light will always find its way
if you are willing to look for it.

If you are ready to bear the light
after staying so long in the dark
light will come to you
and it will hurt for a while
but everything’s gonna be alright.

Don’t lose your spark

I know you started out with a dream
and you tried to turn it into reality
your dream died while competing with many other dreams
but do not lose your spark.

I know now that your dream has died
it must hurt
but whatever happens, build your dream again
and do not lose your spark.

It may take a day
or years
to see your dream where you want to see it
keep working
do not lose your spark.

Many dreams will come
many will go
a few will live
many will die
but remember if your dream can make even
one face smile
for that one smile
do not lose your spark.

Mom, you read me fairy tales, reality is different

If a poet(ess) loves you, you won't die

reality

I still remember how Cinderella accidentally left her shoe
and how I prayed silently for her to be united with her lover
And I still have fresh memories of Snow White
a story that told me that love conquers all
even death sometimes.
I grew up with these fairy tales mother
the tales that you read to me
and you said there is always
some beauty
hidden in the darkest of times.

Mother, I don’t blame you
but when you used to read me those fairy tales
you made me have faith;
faith in the fact that everything will be alright
that magic exists
and it can work in the strangest of ways.

Today when reality stands in front of me
I am hung between the facts and fantasies
I am trying to push myself over to the other side
but my heart is still stuck
at the point
where…
