Contentment

Standard

When the heart is content, and desires nothing more, the soul is calm, without any resentment.

Anxiety falls away from the mind like a waterfall, quickly, mercilessly, violently, leaving calm in its wake.

Life meanders its way through mountains and valleys, flowing silently, gravely, turning into a lifeline for others.

 

When the heart is content, it accepts more, forgives more, is ready to sacrifice for others.

Anticipation of future doesn’t cause fear, the past is happily stored in the  pages of  mind’s albums.

Life gets easier, everything is no more a battle, winning or losing doesn’t make much difference,

for vanquished and victorious are both your very own.

Invisible

Standard

If only we could be invisible,

the winds bringing painful memories of the past shall not find us.

Unsettling the calmness of life, with emotions superflous.

 

If only we were invisible,

the pebbles of memories of losing someone shall not hit us.

Causing ripples in the lake of present, with which we adjust.

 

Hiding peacefully in the serenity of oblivion, we shall be withering away our lives.

Instead, let’s mourn and pay respect to the souls of people we loved.

Let go and rejoice at the passing away of bitter memories of the past.

 

Be visible again,

to welcome the breeze of new moments, turning into happy memories.

To welcome the wind which causes waves in the present, writing new stories.

Words

Standard

Words strung together like exquisite pearls,

Like a beautiful lucky charm for any girl.

 

Uncomplicated like a string of diamonds,

Simple, sparkling, splendid and uncommon.

 

Littered around like thousands of shells on a beach,

Hand picked separately, phrased together for each.

 

Spilling out from a pen, what heart wants to read,

like the very breath that all living so desperately need.

 

Words weave magic, sometimes the truth, sometimes a web of lies.

For words are words, it is actions with which a person is defined.

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.
