Cherish Little Things in Life.

I received a text message from a friend yesterday asking me if I ever thanked my friends for their smiles, hellos, and taps at my back, etc while she thanked me for the same. These may appear little things to one but if one notices, it certainly adds value to one’s life and makes it cheerful. No matter how introvert you are and how reserve you stay, you cannot imagine life without people around you, sooner or later you do feel the need of speaking to someone even if it’s a short conversation or just a hello. However, it entirely depends on you if you cherish these minute moments in life. If you do, you will certainly be happy. And if you don’t, then you will be haunted by the joyless shadows. Hence, try celebrating the little things in life like a stranger’s smile, a song sung with friends, or even a morning walk in the University.

Sense of Belonging.

I always describe myself as an explorer on a way to decipher the untapped, bitter and seraphic realities of life whenever I am being asked to introduce myself. I believe life is a never-ending journey of self-exploration and while one continues to explore himself, he certainly is living a life. As soon as s/he ends the travel of self-discovery, s/he will start finding his/her life a meaningless one. The meaning of life may be different for different individuals but it usually revolves around people you care and with whom you share a certain sense of belonging. A sense of belonging forms the basis of the meaning of life. For instance, we belong to our beloved parents who wish to see our success and therefore, they emphasize on our studies. Since, we belong to them, we do consider if what they want and start considering a sound career and the attainment of education as one of the aims of life. Similarly, for some, keeping their loved ones/spouse happy could be the meaning of life as they feel a sense of attachment to them. While there may be a lot of meanings that could be derived, I am still in quest of one.

The Tender Moments I Yearn for

The endless treasured talks at night
And the silent solemn promises
The winsome words to make things right
And the comforting seraphic caresses
The morning missives and the goodnight lines
The quixotic hugs and embraces
The cute little cards and the odorous nosegays
Filled with earnest and heartfelt praises
The eternal waits, the never-ending times
And the fondly glance and gazes
The trivial tiffs and the temper tantrums
The acts of mischief and rollicking phases
The long, long drives and shopping sprees
The leisurely walks along the beaches
The heavenly halo and a hand to squeeze
Are the missing elements being needed

Let Us Plan Peace.

Let us drench our souls with the fountains of pure love
And cleanse our hearts from hatred
Let us free our minds from all the turbulence
All fears, all pains, and all that’s dreaded
Let the melodies of sacred harmony be played and entertained
And the call of the innocent be heard
Let the tranquil aura surround the celestial sphere
And let the true peace be observed
Let the violence end and the bloodshed cease
Which breaches all the peace
Let the wars in the world be abolished and done away with
And the spirits of unity increase
Let the world be a heavenly cosmos
For us to live and share
A pacific place in the holy space
For all the people, dear

Falling in Love Again.

The dreaded years of sorrows have seemed to reach a close
The bruises are now healing, and so are the painful woes
The times of my life rejuvenate and revive
As the love strikes again letting me feel alive
The evanescing light in my heart seems to glow anew
Eclipsing all the grief that somehow made me blue
Wiping all the tears being shed in vain
I can feel the holy love happening again
And while my life had been as dormant as a sleeping volcano
With nothing to cherish and celebrate
A new spring of love splashes in my heart
Transforming the entire fate
Changing all around me, myself, my fears and pains
It seems like I am falling in love again!

Lonesome without You.

Have you ever wondered how alone would I be?
While gazing at the moon and walking by the sea
While the gentle wind would play with the tresses of my hair
And the chilly breeze would freeze my salty, flowing tears
While the Mother Nature’s shower would be tapping at the pane
And I could hear the whistling of the distant trains
Have you ever wondered if what is solitary’s pain?
While I would pass by the sweet dwelling that we shared
The times when we had fought, and the moments when we cared
While I would feel affrighted by a terrifying nightmare
The times when I would be surrounded by the unseen fears
When there would be a winning, a time to celebrate
Or a phase of failure, a stroke of ill-fate
While the sonance of the silence would all that be heard
And the surrounding views would go on getting blurred
While the soul would lastly be liberated and set free
Will you then be wondering if how alone I had been?

The Worrying Whys Within

The worrying whys still haunt my mind
And the Acherontic aura surrounds me
Neither letting me live nor letting me die
The story still confounds me
Had it been the Divine play or the Tempter’s little game
The miraculous reality of my life or a hallucinating dream frame
Had it been a pure devotion or an infatuation ended with time
Had it been my fault or yours masterminded sweet crime
If I had several flaws and never let you feel mine
What made you love me then before choosing to decline
If you had been the one alone to give up and give in
What would you call the stances when
I never treated your lies as sins
If faith was all you had in me, and the affection would have been true
How come you placed false blames on me been based on reasons untrue
And now when we have separate ways to follow and pursue
All I need is a justifiable reply for all the questions from you
Since, worrying whys still haunt my mind
While, the answers to the questions I try to find.

Loving You.

With brimming tears and aching heart
I kept on wondering what made us part
What made you turn away your face?
Letting me follow the sufferer’s race
And while you turn a deaf ear to
The words I spoke or wrote to you
I wondered if it were really you
An unforeseen illusion becoming true
When times have changed, and so are you
Still, why do I keep doting you?
And when there is nothing left to be true
Yet, why do I keep loving you?

Weird Whispers.

Alone in my darkened room
Along with the blessed solitude
I lay straight and stare the wall
Figuring out my life's rises and falls
Thinking that I may belong to somewhere else
Knowing it made a little sense
Comprehending the purpose of my existence
Was I being created for practicing persistence
Thinking what forced me for doing wrongs
Why was I destined to hear the melancholic songs?
And when I ended up questioning myself
I saw a ray of light entering the room
I woke up and took a great deep sigh
A sigh of relief, that's what I believe
As Lord has shown me the way to fly
A reason to live; a purpose to die
