On a loop…

I go on a loop, with a clam, 

Seeking reality amidst all the sham,

In the mission to figure out who I am, 

Only to discover bliss in the mayhem!

A good turn, my way :)

Yesterday, my friend and I got into a share-auto on our way back home from work. Soon afterward, the heavy downpour started and as the auto sped off we were worried about how we’d reach home on time. Since we were the last 2 passengers in the rickshaw, the driver said he’d better head straight home, when he asked him if he could drive us to our destination (we had to take another bus to reach home). Fair enough. But then, as we reached our stop, the downpour became heavier making it impossible for people to walk on the streets without an umbrella or a jerkin – and we had neither. The auto rickshaw driver sensing that offered to drive us to the bus stop (for which he had to take a left from the junction where we had planned to get down and drive a few metres, whilst he had planned to go straight) and we gratefully agreed.

But he didn’t just drop us off at the bus stand and leave yesterday. He was kind enough to let us wait in the auto rickshaw until the bus came (10 minutes later), he ensured both of us got in safely and then left the place. 
That was one good turn our way yesterday. God bless him in abundance ✨😊

Let go! ✨

Why bottle it all up, inside,

When you can let your emotions be your guide,

When you can choose how (art, music, poetry, dance, theatre, cinema and so much more), to bring it all out,

Not just scream, weep, laugh or shout,

Where, you can stagger, yet, find your own pace,

Paint your canvas red, if it’d bring you solace,

Why bottle it all up inside, 

When there’s so much in the world to confide!

It’s For Forever!

Time flies. Circumstances change. Faces become unfamiliar. We age.

It is ironical though – the fact that we meet millions of people in different phases our lives, but we manage to stick on to only a few. A few become strangers, a few, acquaintances, a few, family, and a few, friends, for life – because, we connect with them like we do with nobody else. The wavelength, the rapport, the understanding, the warmth.

To those few of you in my life – you belong to me.

It doesn’t matter in which part of the world you live, it doesn’t matter if we don’t converse everyday, it doesn’t matter that today ain’t friendship day – but – I love you.

I am, because you help me be.

Thank you, for, you connect with me the way I am,  you connect with my flaws, with my  follies. With my imperfections. With my eccentricity. With my absurdity.

This bond we share, just so you know, is for forever.

To Dreams!✨

It’s never too late,

Don’t push something to be destined by fate,

Instead, work your way toward what you want,

There’s​ nothing in the universe, that achieve, you can’t,

For, what you’re seeking, is lying in wait, seeking you,

And all it takes, to reach there, is, efforts true,

Be your own paragon

Become your own icon,

Create for you, a niche that you’d be proud to own,

An identity, a name, that no one can dethrone,

Begin to climb the ladder to a life you think would awesome,

Live to see your dreams blossom!

My Sunshine, My Rain πŸ’–

The last thing anyone needs in life is negativity. In any form. 

What’s meant to be, will be and there’s no stopping it. But let’s not complicate it more. 

There’s already too much void around, in life. There’s no more space for vaccum.

So here’s to weeding out

Weeding out people, and thoughts, that ain’t anything else but only to pass your time with. 

And here’s to blocking all the vaccum and void with people who you really matter to, and who, matter to you. 

Because, the rest don’t really fit in.

So here’s my mid year resolution. 

Staying away. 

From people, to whom I ain’t bringing a ray of sunlight. From people who only lend me shadows and dark clouds – sans the rain. From instability. From disrespect. From resentment, regret and repentance.

And here’s to my bunch of happy people. For, you are my sunshine, you are my rain. Because it sometimes takes a storm, a rollercoaster ride or a tender flight to realize what people truly are.

Oh, and the number of contacts on your WhatsApp chat or the friends on your Facebook account really don’t matter. ‘Cause you already know who you are to people and they know what they mean to you.
Cheers!πŸ’–

P.S. Let them know they mean the world to you, if they don’t already know. It’s important they know.
P.P.S. Choose wisely. ✨

Keep Going…✨

With the crests and troughs in the curve called life,

There’s nothing uniform, not even the strife,

Keep going, give whatever it takes to reach where you want,

There’s nothing in the world that achieve, you can’t,

Look beyond your flaws, look beyond your scars,

For you are meant to reach the stars!
