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…

Unspoken Words

Full of emotion,

So precious as if they were golden

And had the power to swim an entire ocean

But in the end, those words just weren’t spoken

 

“Why?” you ask

Only because getting them out of the soul was such a task

Therefore, they had to live their entire lives with their faces wearing an invisible mask…

 

Ego and arrogance one again did something which was inexcusable,

Preventing a bond which was so pure and beautiful

Or maybe those words were so divine and bountiful

In love; That they didn’t deserve to be spoken in this world which has become so fake and delusional…

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…

Mind

Prone to wander,

And although not scared to face things even scarier than thunder,

It’s own thoughts make it shudder as if it is being blundered,

And it becomes their slave rather than its commander

It is indeed world’s most complicated wonder…

What it doesn’t know is that it is the most potent thing to ever exist 

For it is the creator of the most powerful technology and most effective medicines for the treatment of most horrid of cysts.

Someone tell it that it is indeed God’s most special gift

And even when all other material things disappear, it is the most likely to persist…

So strong that it can destroy itself and deteriorate

Be it in the form of excess sadness, pleasure or love that it itself might create.

There is a limit to the emotions that it can accumulate

If pushed beyond its limits, it is likely to disintegrate…

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

 

 

 

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.
