Father’s Day

Standard

A very simple photograph, evoking simple emotions. The Moon appearing like a pearl in the ocean, a jewel on a fabric, a bulb in the fog, guiding light in a storm, like a father, a bindi on the forehead of the woman, whose face can dispense thousands of worries in fraction of a second, mother’s.

Sparkling Moon on the forehead of sky,

dispensing cloudy frowns of worries,

just like a mother’s face would.

 

Lone ranger offering shoulder to cry,

to billions of stars, dispensing pain of distance,

like a friend’s shoulder would.

 

Shining jewel on the blue fabric of trust,

mending, hiding holes of mistakes,

like a sibling’s trust would.

 

Glowing in the distance, like a lamp in the storm,

dispersing darkness even before it comes,

like a teacher’s glow would.

 

Showing the way, easing the path,

lighting up the road, for future ahead,

like a father’s guidance would.

 

Caressing gently, empowering with the Sun’s reflection,

embracing, as one is,

like a lover’s love would.

To the young adult

Standard

They say, your inner thoughts are your most loyal friends.

Inspiring you, motivating you, giving you strength to carry on.

 

Unfortunately, they are your most dissuading foes too.

Discouraging you, demotivating you, sucking the strength out of your life.

 

Control your own thoughts for you can’t control others’.

Instill positivity in your own mind, for you can’t remove negetivity from others’.

 

let your own thoughts guide you, let the light inside your heart shine through.

Don’t give others the power to penetrate your soul.

 

People are people, some love, some hate, some are calmly indifferent.

Their words, their actions should not be given precedence over your own.

 

You are who you are, for you were meant to be like that.

Cherish yourself, value yourself, be your own ideal.

 

No one but you are the protagonist of the drama of your life.

Be happy, be peaceful and applaud yourself.

Tempest of emotions churning inside the stomach.

Unbearable pain which fails to subside.

 

Huge void which gets deeper everyday.

The absence of feelings arise.

 

Continuous pining for missing aura.

Dwelling within swollen heart.

 

Thoughts haunting like ghosts.

Clinging like vines.

 

Waiting for return.

Of presence.

Life.

 

Questions?

Standard

Answers to all our questions are buried deep within us.

Dig a little deeper and they shall find us.

 

We don’t find them for we are dishonest with ourselves.

Let honesty do the searching and they shall find us.

 

Questions don’t arise for we expect answers from others.

They are directed towards others  for we  are afraid of answering them.

Let integrity do the questioning and the answers shall find us.

Trust

Standard

Trust is the essence of a strong mutual bond. Everyone has their own perception of trust. It is difficult to understand and estimate it. The sanctity of a relationship can be easily compromised if there is slightest of breach in trust.

It is not a constant, it is a random variable. The value keeps changing with each action. The action could be the slightest of change in the whole equation.

Trust is also not a bank account where one keeps getting interest on it once it is earned and deposited. The Principal has to be maintained otherwise it keeps fluctuating.

It is like hard earned income, very hard to earn but easily spent or lost if one is not handling it judiciously. One needs to earn it, save it, invest in it, cherish it and finally enjoy it.
