Just hold on….

Just don't stop believing 
Just hold on
Just one more time
Just one more try
Another battle, another fight
Nothing comes that easy
Some will win, some will lose
But tales do not end here
Just another story
Just another assumption
The whole book is awaiting
Just hold on
Just don't stop believing
Working hard to get your pursuit
Working hard to get your dreams
Feeling the euphoria
That thrill of emotions
It's not over
It's not the climax
Of the story, you are living
Stories are hidden in stories
Till it is done
Till you decide it to be
It's not over
Till your last breath
Just hold on
Just don't stop believing
Standing on the verge
Just a few more steps
You can't give up now
Things only you know
Things no one can see
Feelings you conquer
Just don't stop believing
Just hold on
Just one more time
Just one more try
Write it the way you want
Your story, your tale

My Solitude.

My solitude talk to me 
Talk for me
But I never listen
May be afraid to listen to the truth
About the consequences
About the continuations

My solitude argue with me
Argue for me
But I never heed
May be afraid to heed the transition
About the nightmares
About the choices

My solitude complain to me
Complain about me
But I never acknowledge
May be afraid to acknowledge the reality
About the people who left
About the people who stay

My solitude always spoke with me
Spoke for me
Always holding the hand
Of my introvert self
Hidden behind the glee.

Freedom!

( For the visually challenged reader, the image shows a hand extended out with a little bird sitting on it. In the background, one can see a lake and it’s shore in distance)
Finally, you are free
From the golden cage of greed
Believe me, you can fly
The sky is waiting
Spread your wings and fly away.

Battles Known-Unknown!!

You try to make the worst seems better 
You try to make look yourself strong
You try to find the deserted core
You try to find the excuses untold
You try to search the keys of unopened doors
You try to search the lost qualms
You try to sail that dried ocean
You try to sail that fallen cloud
You try to climb that collapsed mount
You try to climb that cut-down trees
You try to absorb all the guilts
You try to absorb all the sins
Barren land, all deserted and bruised
Old wounds cut open, stinging more
Millions of reasons to give up
Millions of reasons to let go
But you try to fight, you try to fight
Those battles are known but unknown
Breaking the barriers, cracking the fence
Smashing the palaces of solaces
Boundaries undefined and vague
Comforts don't captivate and excite
Invisible passages enchant
Quest to find that lost soul
Quest to find that abandoned self
You feud, you resist
You withstand, you keep
Those unknown battles which are known.

उठ देख जरा …

माना रात अंधेरी है सुबह होने में थोड़ी देरी है 
पर तू ऐसे सो नहीं सकता, तुझे खुद को जगाना है
पर तू ऐसे रुक नहीं सकता, थक नहीं सकता
क्यों रोता तू क़िस्मत पर
उसके आँचल में क्यों सिसकियाँ भरता
ये तेरी ही दास है,तू क्यों निराश है
जो नहीं मिला,जो बीत गया
जो आने वाला है जो चला गया है
उसका गम क्या करता है
तू क्यों खोता ऐसे आस है, सोच जरा
तेरी इच्छाशक्ति बड़ी या भाग्य
एक ठोकर से ही तू डर नहीं सकता है
ऐसे छुप कर,सहम कर बैठ नहीं सकता
अभी तो पूरी जंग है बाक़ी,डर नही सकता
तुझे खुद को हराना है, खुद को और तपाना है
दीये की लॉ है तू,रोशन करना एक जमाना है
खुद की तलाश कर, खुद को पहचान जरा
उस ज़िद, उस आशा का दामन थाम जरा
सोना नहीं रातो को तुझे,तुझे ख़ुद को जागना है
खेलता तू अंगारों से, आग से क्यों घबराना है
चलता अकेला अंजान राहो पर, क्या भय है
सागर से भी गहरा, तेरा आत्मविश्वास है
माना रात अंधेरी है सुबह होने में देरी है
तू सो नहीं सकता, तुझे खुद को जगाना है
हारा कब तू किसी से, हारा तू खुद से
अब और नहीं, खुद को खोज ले फिर से।

Footprints of spirit

(For the visually challenged reader, the image shows a person walking in a desert, dwarfed by huge sand dunes. A long line of their footsteps can be seen behind them)

For Sadje’s What do you see # 46 – 7 September 2020
Walking all alone
In the desert of life
Leaving the footprints
Omnipresent in this universe
Journey of origins
Various births you take
Unique in all ways  
Carrying the burdens
From one to another
Pulled apart and aloof
As if the outside this mortal world
Become formless, indefinite
The only energy you feel
Roaming with the shadows
Tramping with gloom
In search of the absolute truth
In search of the final destination
Away from the hallucinations of oasis 
Away from the illusions of delusions

There is the fire within….

It's hidden, It's apparent 
It's small, It's big
There is the fire within
Burning brighter than the fire around
Nothing was too painful to survive
Reminiscences of past, Fantasies of future
Perceptions of the present
Memories haunts, Expectations kill
Disappointments and let downs
Misgiving answers
We pursuit and plan
Making it more tormenting
Agonizing the whole soul
There is the fire within
Scorching brighter than the dawn
Sparkling and radiating
Spreading out among the stars
Illuminating the cosmos around
Atomic collisions of the thoughts
Reflections and impressions
The most powerful weapon
There is the sun within
There is the fire within
Maybe a missile or lantern
Maybe the destroyer or keeper
Maybe little, maybe unknown
See the smoke, feel the heat
vaporized the deceptions
faded the notions
There is the fire within

It rises up…..

FOR SADJE’S What do you see # 45 – 31 August 2020
When gravity playing tricks 
Trying to pull it down
It rises up, It rises up high
In the sky, wishing to touch the stars
Driven with the fire within
Against all the odds
Against all the qualms
Spread the wings and fly away
Exploring higher height
Looking at the pinnacle
It rises up, it rises up high
It rises up from the burdens
It rises up from the skepticism
It rises up from the dust
Unstoppable and never look back
Follow its path, not afraid
Between the realms of life
It rises up, it rises up high
Spreading happiness and delight

Imperfections?

She doesn't see her charm 
She doesn't see her real
She doesn't see her truth
She doesn't see her allure
She doesn't see her worth
She doesn't trust her
She doesn't know her
She is beautiful, she is perfect
She doesn't want to understand her
She doesn't want to believe her
The only thing, she beholds is scars
Her imperfections, her flaws
Her pains, her agonies, her miseries
Words echo in her head
Millions of reasons to accept them
To let go, to run away, to quit
Keep on hurting her, keeping her down
Beauty goes deeper than the covering
And you don't have to change
The world itself has wounds to hide
Even the moon has blemishes
embracing them with grace
We find it beautiful, envy the praise
Making a wish upon a fallen star
We believe the false dawn
Untrue hopes and mistaken beliefs
Let me be your mirror, Let me be your light
Let me be your voice, Let me be your self
Beyond this heaven of lies
Deeper than your eyes would see
In the wide sea, with high waves
There is a paradise, There is a euphoria
A place of bliss, Where your heart abides
You are more than you feel
You are better than you think
You are imperfect but perfect

Just Another Girl

She is not the Queen, She is not the Princess
She is not an angel, She is not a sunshine
She is one amongst you, Just another girl
Who lived in a black and white world
Innocent and naive, who trusted all lies as truth
Questioning all the existence, all the utterances conceded
A rebel, A fighter, A procrastinator, A loafer
A paradox, A dreamer, A Observer, A believer
Who believed, one day she will touch the clouds
Who believed to visit all places unexplored
Who believed the world is still beautiful and colorful
Who believed, the whole universe is waiting for her
Who believed, she does not belong here
Who believed, some bigger meaning waiting for her
Who believed to unfold the lores, the enigmas
Who believed in those said definitions
In search of the explanations and moralities
Who believed in freedom not bounded by strings
A fallen leaf, A dried River, A cracked earth
A shattered hill, A lost cloud, A rainbow without rain
Unopened book with blank pages which are penned
A mirage in the desert, which has disappeared
Silent yet her voice reaches everybody
Absorbing in her soul, all the tales and adventures
The essence of nature, the smell of tangibility
She is one amongst you yet different
She is just another girl.
