‘Tis sometimes good, to let your hair down,
To laugh out loud and forget to frown,
To indulge yourself, to make you, your first priority,
To enjoy your happiness, and shed that anxiety,
To live a little for yourself, just how you’d want to,
To be haywire, awry and askew,
To take time off and find your zen,
Because if you wouldn’t, who would, then?
Because it’s my mom’s birthday today…❤
On some days she is the rain,
On some days, she becomes your sunshine,
On some days, she is a myriad of emotions,
On some days she is bereft, of expressions,
On some days she is a handful, claiming your attention,
On some days she remains silent, anxious with apprehension,
On some days she charms you, with her lilting laughter,
On some days she captivates you, with the fierceness of a warrior…
She becomes everything there is and beyond – you wouldn’t want to assess her capacity,
For, she decides, she defines, what she chooses to be!
She thought her dream of pursuing music for a career,
Was now a closed chapter,
For, she was forced to stay within walls four,
And manage the household chores,
Little did she know,
She’d be wooed to revive her passion and how,
The man who ordered her to quit, her “better half” out of the blue,
Now, leaves no stone unturned, to get her back to continue,
Money sure, has the Midas touch,
For it manages to make a gentleman out of an egoistic grouch!
A man looked at his teenage daughter tending to her parrot in the garden,
He strode over to explain to her that the cage wasn’t its safe haven.
“Don’t cage the bird, just let it fly,
The poor thing can’t even speak, it wouldn’t ask you what or why,
Let it take its course, Don’t restrict it by force,
Set it free,
For, the world, it needs to see,
Don’t cut its wings, just let it fly”
“What about me, dad?”
What’s with the “Maybe it’s not meant for me”,
“I’ll have to just let it be”, philosophy?
The brickbats, the failures, the taunts, you face,
Don’t let them put you off your chase,
Defy gravity if you must, but continue to fight for what you want,
There’s nothing that’s impossible, there’s nothing that you can’t,
Keep alive the spark, extinguish not, the fire,
Go ahead, dare, to live the life you desire!
To all those amazing souls out there who have a dream and wish to live it, who struggle with life each day and yet, will to pursue their passion – This is for you. Keep alive your fire, your determination to succeed. Cheers!
Days when you lose track,
Nights when you cry yourself to sleep as you hit the sack,
Moments when you fear,
And hide from the world, that single tear,
Every time that you are drowned in self doubt,
And your life looks like a huge clout,
Breathe. Take a step back. Relax,
You don’t break, You ain’t made of glass,
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!
