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

Standard

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.

 

Which imparts,

Life.

 

Dreams

Standard

Dreams are dreams, inconsequential, only, if they are just  dreams. So…

Dream a little, dread them a little, dare a little, don’t let them gather dust.

 

Dust them, oil them, pull them towards meaningfulness. To pursue…

Plan a little, play with them a little, progress a little, fail miserably if you must.

 

Open up the mind, think outside the box, focus, don’t let thoughts wander…

Wait a little, work on it a little, worship the idea a little, gift yourself your own trust.

 

Thus, realize dreams, turn thoughts into truth, keep the window to your heart open…

Live a little, laugh a little, long a little, give life a loving thrust.

Buddha’s Wisdom

Standard

We are prisoners of our own expectations.

Inviting in our lives, misery at the cost of desires.

We were born free, once upon a time.

Devoid of anything but an instinct to survive.

Drawing breath, our only skill, to stay alive.

 

Building dungeons and cages around us.

To imprison our own happiness.

Illusive as it is, capturing sadness instead.

Staring at its painful face, searching for existence’s worth.

Wondering about life’s root cause for serenity’s dearth.

 

Break the chains of expectations and set your mind free.

Let peace guard our hearts from desires.

Life happens at its own pace, no point rushing it otherwise.

Feel the gentle tug of contentment, as time slowly slips like sand from a fist.

Enriching your life with good Karmas, that is life’s  singular gist.

The dreamer

Standard

She lives in a world of her own, waiting for the future.

The future visits everyday, touches her and is gone.

She keeps living in a world of her own.

Throwing out bits and pieces of herself, into the real world.

A half conversation, a story untold, an idea being raised for so long.

Portions of herself surviving in both halves, people getting her all wrong.

She lives in dream world of her own, anticipating the unseen.

The unseen reveals everyday, making itself known.

She keeps living in a world of her own.

Sometimes confused, sometimes awed, sometimes disoriented.

Walks in and out of the maze of society, refusing to obligate.

If only she could wipe out somethings everyday, starting with a clean slate.

She lives in an unreal world, longing for reality.

Reality checks itself everyday, the truth is  shown.

She still keeps living in a world of her own.

The staircase.

Standard

Staircase spiralling up to the heaven or descending down to hell?

Taking you to the top or to the bottom of the well?

 

Reaching up for your dreams or treading on someone’s dwell?

Lifting the spirits or making them scream and yell?

 

Helping someone climb or pulling down, only you can tell!

Laughing while climbing or crying when you fell!

 

Looking up in sweet anticipation or looking down with fear of unwell?

Initiating action or waiting lazily for the gong of the bell?

 

Climbing up or climbing down, hold tightly the hand of integrity, don’t let your soul sell.

Protect it with trust and love, conceal it in tenderness and faith’s shell.

 

And if you choose to reach the top, be like a beacon to the ships in the ocean swell.

Guiding them to safety of home, bidding troubles farewell.
