#MondayMusings : Down the memory lane

#MondayMusings : Down the memory lane

While Mondays are usually spent wondering how did the weekend go by and waiting for the next weekend to come, today was a little different sort of a Monday for me. Stuck at home because of the bandh, an unplanned leave happened. While Eat-Sleep-Read repeat is usually the mantra for days like these, I had a strange urge to look at pictures from my childhood.

Lost

Lost

I find myself lost, In the madness of this world. For I find myself tossed, By the troubles of this world.   As a child, I had a dream, That I’d grow up to find myself. All I hear now is my heart’s silent scream, I live a life that belongs to someone else.   For how long will I go on, With dreams that […]

#MondayMusings : Rediscovering the joy of cycling

#MondayMusings : Rediscovering the joy of cycling

The cloudy Saturday morning doesn’t dampen my spirit. There is wind in my hair as I stop pedalling while going down a slope. The rains from the previous night have washed the roads clean and I seek to explore the inner streets of the locality that I live in. Being a Saturday morning, it is quieter than usual as the city hasn’t woken up like […]

#WednesdayVerses : Be brave, be strong

In difficult times, When things don’t seem alright. In the days, When life becomes a never-ending fight. Be brave, be strong!   There are struggles, That make you lose hope. There are losses, That you can’t seem to cope. But, be brave, be strong!   There are moments, When you’ve lost it all. There are torments, That you cannot stall. Yet, be brave, be strong! […]

No longer

No longer

There’s often a blast from the past, Reminding you of how things were. Lost in a bag of memories so vast, You realize many things are now a blur.   There were so many things, That you wanted to do. You wanted to soar high on those little wings, For your dreams were never few.   But then you let yourself to be pulled back, […]

#WednesdayVerses : Anger

#WednesdayVerses : Anger

Like the scorching heat of the summer sun, Anger burns things down. But it isn’t a battle won, For it burns you along.   It flows within you, Leaving you restless. And you don’t know how it grew, But in the end, it leaves you helpless!   A few words spoken, Which weren’t supposed to be mean, Now leave you broken, More than you’ve ever […]

#WednesdayVerses : Let go

#WednesdayVerses : Let go

It is hard to let go, Of things that really matter. But often we hold on, To things that bring us down.   For long, you’ve held on, To the many things, That others have wanted you to, It is time now to let go.   Let go of your inhibitions, That stop you from flying high. Hold on to that dream, Though it frightens […]

#WednesdayVerses : Fragments of time

#WednesdayVerses : Fragments of time

Into the oblivion I stare, As I look back on life. I sift through the memories, And find the ones now rare.   I go back to the good old days, As I reminisce the moments gone by. I’m filled with a longing to turn back time, To the time when my dreams I did chase.   These days life rushes past, As if on […]
