Beauty

Isn’t it beautiful listening to the sound of the rain?

Isn’t it fascinating thinking how the moon wanes?

Isn’t it lovely seeing the mountains covered with white snow?

Isn’t it pleasing to feel the wind blow?

.

Seeing the birds fly,

Having your dog come and sit nearby,

Looking at clouds in a clear blue sky,

All lifting your mood up high!

.

Who says beauty is found in material things?

Are gold and silver really needed to experience the joy life brings?

“Comfort” Zone

Getting out of one’s comfort zone,

Trying out travelling alone,

Making decisions that are risk-prone,

Is no doubt difficult – like trying to live without a phone!

.

Often leads to breakdowns,

Often makes one look like a clown

And often makes one frown.

.

But then if one doesn’t live for these things,

They are just like a bird without wings.

Even if their day-to-day life doesn’t sting,

They miss out on life and all that it brings.

Think over Overthinking!

Thinking of shallow things too deeply

Yes, to stop overthinking about things isn’t easy

But then, you’ve got to keep yourself busy!

.

Play a game of carrom,

Or go study the structure of an atom.

Watch a movie

Or go do something goofy.

Read a book

Or go learn how to cook!

.

Why pretend when you’re not fine?

In front of those to whom you say, “You’re Mine.”

They are the ones who’d get you off of your tough times.

.

If you don’t come out and express,

If all you do to your thoughts and feelings is repress,

The mind would become a bubble of stress.

And when it’d burst, it would create a huge mess!

Hope For Humanity

He had a dream

To do something for the disadvantaged

To improve their esteem.

“Your idea is not feasible,” they deemed

But he never let them affect his saintly scheme

.

He always had hope

That his idea had scope

When someone told him to stop, he said, “Nope”

He was made up of stuff that would change the globe.

.

Now, whether he succeeded is a different story,

But actions like these bring mankind glory.

Amongst this world of insanity,

There are still people who give hope to humanity.

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?

Who Knew

Who knew that behind that laugh

Was a heart that was broken in half

 

Who knew that behind that beautiful Instagram post

Was a soul that was depressed the most

 

Who knew that behind that gorgeous face

Was a person who had no inner grace;

And needed to be put in his place

 

Who knew that behind that poet’s charming phrases

Were his life’s darkest phases.

 

Who knew that behind that “loyal” friend

Was a stranger that only knew how to pretend

 

Who knew that behind that closed room door

Was a brain that was waiting to roar…

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…

My life

2019…

As 2019 heads to a close, I have been thinking about how the year panned out and I came to the conclusion that it was one full of surprises(good and bad), love and hate, and full of moments that can never be forgotten. In short, the year was quite eventful and interesting, to say the least 🙂

  1. First of all, I started writing this blog!! And it came out to be my savior whenever I needed to vent out my feelings on whatever topic it may be. Also, I started writing poetry all thanks to this platform. 31 January 2019, the date of my first post and also the date I would never forget in my life. 50 posts aren’t bad in 10 months and I’m quite proud of myself for that. Also, to those people who have followed the blog since the start, I have a special place in my heart for you all!
  2. Made a lot of memories with some of my best friends playing video games(I would be lying if I said if I wasn’t addicted to Fortnite) and talking nonsense till 3 AM every day just before my Class X Board Examinations(Apparently a big deal here in India). Managed a decent grade in the same despite all of this so-called time wastage
  3. A special mention for the special birthday surprise from my closest buddies. It was one hell of a birthday!!
  4. Made an awesome friend who has always supported me ever since. Also, I made some confidants who were once not so loving towards me <3.
  5. I went to Yellowstone National Park and saw the geysers that I read about so much in textbooks. The park’s attractions like The Old Faithful, The Caldera, and the Mammoth Hot Springs were quite a spectacle and were totally different from the usual tourist spots. Also visited Toronto just around the time the Raptors won. Let’s just say that the city was crazy during this time.
  6. I wrote a book!! Well, a single story which is going to be published in a book and it was an interesting experience! Not to forget the  complications that I had to go through to change some part of the story due to a reason (SECRET)
  7. Took up Commerce as my main subject(after a lot of deliberation) in class 11 and to be honest, I could have taken up Psychology but am still satisfied with my decision. (Economics is love)
  8. Learnt some new skills unknowingly.  Robotics, editing and carrying out surveys being some of them. Consistently wrote for the school magazine. Interesting fact-Around half of the articles that I had published were taken from this blog. But I lost all the basketball tournaments in which I participated. *Sobbing*
  9. I visited Sikkim, a small state in India and had some different experiences there. River rafting and hiking to name a few. Also experiences what it was like to have difficulty in breathing due to high altitude!! I also went to a hill station with my school-mates and made unforgettable memories. (3 AM Chit chat and playing cards)
  10. Maintained my old habits. I’m still an overthinker, still sensitive to emotions and still an introvert. Old habits die hard. I did get more vigilant, became more confident and tried to give all of my love and affection to all the people I like and care for.

If you were a part of my life this year in some way or the other, be it a reader and supporter of the blog or my best friend, I love you all. Let’s kill the next year and the decade together !!

Over and Out!!!

All it takes

All it takes is to say thank you

To please a hardworking soul

All it takes is to say sorry

To fill in the relation’s gaping hole

 

All it takes is to love with a genuine heart

To bring delight on a person’s face

All it takes is to keep your ego aside

So that you become someone whom it is impossible to replace

 

All it takes is to be patient

To get better things in life

All it takes is to be humble

To become the one people would like to prioritize

 

All it takes is to smile

To show the world that you are strong

All it takes is to forgive

To ensure that your bond stays intact lifelong

 

All it takes is to communicate directly

To clear all misunderstandings

All it takes is to be sensitive to people’s concerns

To be on the same page even when your views are contrasting

 

All it takes is, to tell the truth

To assure yourself that you are not playing with anyone

All it takes is to come out and express yourself

To get the weight off your shoulders that almost weighed a tonne
