Is It Fair?


Pockets breathing
But you can’t feel the air.
Lips mumbling
But you aren’t aware.
Tension piling
Teardrops everywhere.
Fake colors bleeding
Here and there.
A river flowing
Leaving the scars bare.
People dying
But nobody cares.
And we keep on smiling.
Is it fair?

The Drifter’s Dilemma

Rose in the air,
The fumes of victory.
After deserts and despair,
Fields green, finally.

Clear blue sky,
Soothing wind playing.
An alluring lie,
Or stars shining?

A divine soul appears,
An angel without disguise.
All sorrow clears
By those enchanting eyes.

Mesmerised by the beauty,
A drifter, a wanderer,
Losing his sanity?
Forgetting his nature?

With eyes blinking,
He tried to decide.
The turbulent drifting?
Or the tranquil side?

Being a drifter,
He chose to stride.
“Why?”, asked the nature.
The curiosity could not hide.

Replied the drifter :-
“I drift through the dark
To put on a flight.
A necessary part,
To appreciate the light.”

The Sunshine Blogger Award


Hello people! So, I’ve been nominated for an award called The Sunshine Bloggers Award by a wonderful and creative blogger Soumya. Visit her blog for some heart felt poetry. Thank you Soumya!
Here are my answers :-

1. Why are you here on WordPress?
Ans – I am here on WordPress to blog, I guess. And, why do I blog? I guess because it is a healthy hobby to write and interact with fellow writers and know about their perspective on different things.

2. Who is your favourite author and why?
Ans – I am not into reading much, sadly. Among the books I’ve read, my favourite authors are – Harper Lee (Only one book of hers I’ve read though – To kill a mockingbird) and Agatha Christie (I’m a big thriller fan)

3. What’s on your mind now?
Ans – To be frank, I’m thinking whether the answer to the previous question is longer than required or is it okay..haha!!

4. What do you want from life?
Ans – I’ve got plenty of time to think about that (i’m very unambitious and i’m not sure whether it’s even a word or not πŸ˜› )
For the time being, I just want to explore things and have some experiences, bitter or sweet.

5. Sweet or savoury?
Ans – Depends on the mood. But, I think I prefer savoury more than sweet.

6. What keeps you going during tough times?
Ans – I don’t know. I guess my faith on god and the fact that I can always come back home even after committing a crime (not in a literal sense!)

7. Your favourite quote?
Ans – I’m not sure if a movie line qualifies for a quote or not. But, there’s a movie called ‘V for Vendetta’ which talks about freedom and overthrowing the government and covers many other themes. It is a must watch for everyone. There’s a character ‘V’ whose line is –
“Beneath this mask, there is more than flesh. Beneath this mask, there are ideas. And ideas are bulletproof.”
This is one of my most favourite lines.

So, I guess that’s it. I hope you enjoyed the answers. And regarding my nominations, I nominate everyone who is reading this post to answer the questions which were given to me. Needless to say, it’s not obligatory. But, try it. It’ll be fun.

Here are the rules:-
1. Thank the person who nominated you. (which will be me..yeah!!)
2. Answer the questions from the person who has nominated you. (the questions are the ones I answered)
3. Nominate some other bloggers for this award.
4. Write the same amount of questions for the bloggers you have nominated.
5. Notify the bloggers you have nominated.

So, keep blogging, keep writing and keep smiling! πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚

God Bless Us All!


God bless us all!
‘Cause we are always lost,
Amongst a tornado of thoughts.
Always trying to do right,
We frequently lose the fights.

God bless us all!
‘Cause we are utterly confused souls
Swimming in a fish bowl.
Always dreaming of the sky,
We just can’t reach that high.

God bless us all!
‘Cause we’re His terrified sons,
Trying to smile under loaded guns.
Sinned we are,
Never afraid to go far.

God bless us all!
‘Cause we always fall for those marks.
Those evil whispers in the dark.
And then we judge accordingly,
Seldom knowing the reality.

God bless us all!
So that we always stand tall.
And find those beautiful things
Which won’t let us fall
But, fly without wings.
