You Are Special!

Stupidity is comparing yourself to others,

To your friends, your enemies or even your brother!

Humans don’t form a hierarchical chain,

Where one is over and other is under

In our own way, each one of us is a wonder.

.

If they don’t have anything other to do than compare…

Just think how their life is going to fare!

Imagine their despair

That all they can do is pass comments sitting on a chair,

While they don’t have anything to do and care.

.

You are equally important,

To describe success, there is no constant…

More Than You See

What you hear might not be the truth,

Just like the story of the fairy and your broken milk tooth.

Those who behave the sweetest,

Might just be acting in front of you, 

And could actually be the ones who are the most uncouth.

 

The person with whom you’d never fight,

Could end up being the one who’d give you a backbite.

Those who ALWAYS act helpful and kind,

Might have a hidden agenda on their mind.

 

If the unexpected often ends up happening,

Often hurting one’s feelings,

One wonders why hasn’t the word “unexpected” lost its meaning?

Memories

All of these stories

Some full of joy, some full of worries

Sometimes jotted down in journals or diaries

Are life’s memories

Creating mischief and putting your friends to blame 

The joy of defeating your cousins in a board game

Teasing your best friend’s with their crush’s last name 

All these memories are beautiful, all the same

Packing suitcases 

And visiting different places

Getting photographs clicked making different faces

And then later, remembering the times spent in these oasis…

Binge watching web series and shows

At late night just before you doze

And then getting annoyed when the mobile screen buffers and froze

Ah, what times where those!

Those small successes

Of winning a quiz through guesses

Or getting first prize in a competition where you had to wear fancy dresses

Reminiscing those give the most joy to your brain and its five senses

Sit back and go through your life’s memories on a random day of July

And one moment, they leave you horrified

And in the next, you’ll be flying in the sky 

And before you realise, you might have tear in your eye…

The feeling of..

                                    

 

There was something in his mind

Not person, not a thing

But the most important feeling

The feeling , the feeling.

It nourishes his soul

Gave him the confidence of being a diamond and not a simple piece of coal

It calm downs his mind

And brings in the belief that the  world might still be kind

Encourages him to work towards what he wants, bit by bit

It says, “It’ll surely be worth it”

Instills in the faith that even though selflessness might sting

But it does give you the wings

Towards happiness and jolly things

When others tell him to sit down

It tells him to stand up

When others tell him to stop

It tells him to start

When darkness and clouds combine

It provides him with a little ray of sunshine

Of love, faith and something divine

It might cause him to daydream,

But it does provide him with the mettle to reign supreme!

It might leave him dejected sometimes,

But it does provide him with an opportunity to shine!

It is what allows him to cope

With failure, distrust, and all the downwards slopes

It is the feeling of hope

Of hope, of hope.
