Gender Equality.

I was scrolling through the comments of a YouTube video yesterday, when,

A random insult thrown at the YouTuber caught my attention –

Aimed at him, was the proverbial swear word, not so subtly cloaked under the sheath called “woman”,

Because, hey, where in our dictionary, in our history, have we had ANYTHING against a man?

Ma Sita, was denied an opportunity to present her defence, 
Lady Urmila’s sacrifice has never been recognized just as intense,

Queen Draupadi is often looked down at, cited to be the cause of the war, 

But the inability of her husbands, five, to rise to her defense, has never been criticised on par,

For, SHE, in the world of patriarchy we live in, is always the target, the victim, the shield, the sheath,

SHE, without a choice, is forced to bear the wound, the scar, the taint and the pain beneath,

SHE is stereotyped, prised to compromise,

Her opinions, most often than not, stay disregarded, no matter how wise,

SHE is made to toe the line, her achievements remain overlooked – big or small,
SHE is forced to live under his thumb, expected to wait around at his beck and call,

But lest we forget, it is SHE that has always encompassed HE, 
For, without her, HE, can never be!

Faith restored 💖

She lay immobile, for months, in pain,
The doctors tried everything they​ could, but in vain,

God stepped in to intervene,

Decided, it was time for the vagabond son to enter the scene,

She caught a tiny glimpse of his face – Lo and Behold! – she moved a muscle, with fain,

What medicines and mendicants couldn’t, mother’s love did it again!
Cheers!✨

Dream Away 💝

Dream of a cloudless sky with abundance of sunlight,

Dream of starry moments in the twilight,

Dream of how you would want to live,

Dream of what you would want to give,

Dream where reality wouldn’t take you,

Dream of what you would want to undo,

Dream while asleep, dream when awake,

Dream of something you wouldn’t wanna fake,

Dream with hope, dream without fear,

Because, dreams just don’t have boundaries far or near,

Dreams ain’t just your imagination at play,

Dreams are just your brain’s way of saving your day!

The War.

She always fought her battles, a fighter,

She won over her demons like no other,

She was a warrior, a crusader, 

Who never bowed down to failure,

Succumb, yet, she did, to cancer,

But knew not, until she lived, fear!

The BIG Charisma

My very first poem. I wrote it when I was in class XII. Crazy, silly, mad, excited, overtly enthusiastic, a bit too sensitive. That’s exactly how I was, way back. That’s how I still am. The poem still, is extremely close to my heart and will forever be. 

Happy World Poetry Day 💝

Cheers✨

Emotions That Matter.

When the world outside,
remains dark, 
just for you;
when the people outside,
remain furious,
just with you;
when the place 
around you,
tells you,
you are a “nobody”
think “BIG”!

when you lose,
when your luck fails,
when you are miserable
and you are misunderstood;
when people forget you,
or tend to ignore you,
or intend to hurt,
just think “BIG”!

when you are not listened to,
your presence is not felt,
and you feel lost——
when you break down 
and lose your self confidence
or feel bitter,
dream “BIG”!

when people step over you,
or make you cry hard,
and you think you are—
“A LOSER”, “A GONER”
and you forget to smile,
just dream “BIG”!

when nobody you like,believes in you,
and they lose their faith in what you can do,
or throw away hopes of what you are capable of,
become “BIG”!

BE YOURSELF,   BELIEVE IN…

The Wait…

When you’ve done all you could,

Even when, no one, by your side, stood,

You mustered up courage and hope,

And took upon you beyond what you could cope,

You waited day through night, 

You looked above wrong and right,

Futile your efforts were, you did know,

Yet, your disappointment, you didn’t show,

The wait was perhaps worth it all,

Inspite of the pain, the tears big and small,

Because, the chaos, the pandemonium, it brought and broke,

Actually, strengthened your soul with each stoke!

Live Your Dream!

Your dreams define where you want to reach, and what you want from life. So, dream on!

Emotions That Matter.

Days when you lose track,

Nights when you cry yourself to sleep as you hit thesack,

Moments whenyou fear,

And hide from the world, that single tear,

Every time that you are drowned inself doubt,

And your life looks like a huge clout,

Breathe. Take a step back. Relax,

You don’t break, You ain’t made ofglass,

You don’t know what you have in store,

So hang in there a bit more,

Pursue your passion, push yourself to where you want to be,

Live your dreams, life will show you what you want to see!
