If I was….

What if I was a tree!

You must be a wine around me,

What if I was a stone,

You must be green algae living on me,

What if I was an abode,

You must be the only occupant in there,

What if I was a desert land,

You must be the wind blowing over me,

What if I was a mountain,

You must be the snow over me,

What if I was a river,

You must be a boat sailing over me,

What if I was a valley,

You must be seasonal flower existing over me,

What if ! Can be anything,

But you are never permanent,

Neither you nor your words,

Still I carry them along with full worth,

It’s not you, who is special,a

Oh dear! It’s my heart who should get all the credit,

Again and Again

Holding myself once again,

To check for her if she came online,

Despite of knowing it already,

Still heart want to make another try,

Sometimes it settles down in few attempts,

Sometimes it continue for hours trying every minute,

Building a castle of glass ,

Cemented with almighty hope,

And then feeling of getting dashed down everything,

Hurting itself when it ends up in nothing,

And yet again repeating the same next day,

Building and breaking endlessly again and again,

Sometimes I think how amazing the heart is,

How much important every feeling is,

How everything else just become worthless,

How it become the only important thing,

Is it same with everyone,

Or I m the only one, insane,

Whatever , whatever,,,,

With all dreams and their pain,

It just never want to give up,

And keep trying again and again,

Endlessly, insanely, illogically,,,

Repeating it everyday ,

Again and again,,,,

Faith in process

Waiting for that day,

Making it believe that way,

Like it might have been longer Autumn,

Last of leaves might have fallen,

Storms of winters may be taking away new buds,

Making it their habit to Repeat their wrath,

Even after that trees are still standing tall,

Roots are Holding the ground tight,

Sooner or later storms have to give up,

And give way for spring to come up,

And let those buds to bloom,

Hoping it the way it is used to goes on,

Nature has its way to tell us to hold on,

Hope and believe strengthen our faith,

Sooner or later it happens ,no matter what it takes,,

Roar of Sky

A wonder among the wonders,

Blinking in the form of thunders,

One after another strikes ,

Lightening all over the sky,

Maybe it will pour bigger,

As clouds presenting dark figures,

Isn’t it an exciting hue,

Little scary yet a beautiful view,

Thunders are rumbling harder now,

Making our heartbeats a bit louder,

Exciting our body with its roar,,

End of tunnel

If I could see,

If I could know,

If I could understand,

When this tunnel is going to end,

I have heard there is light beyond it,

It open up into bright white,

It makes everything visible to our sight,

Ending our journey through dark as night,

It opens a colourful world to our eyes,

Give reality to all of our imaginations,

Ends our wait filled with endless frustrations,

Ends the fray of keep walking on assumptions,

Gives Validation to our hopes,

And our faith gets a deserving win,

I heard it somewhere,

There is light at end of tunnel,

I wish I could know when will it end,

Sleep!!! Sleep!!!

Once again, It’s call for midnight,

Only nocturnals are left upright,

Yet another awake night,

Inner voices are calling to sleep,

It’s been an hour or more,

My eyelids have been in perfect lock,

But it’s the mind who holds the control,

It’s wandering about every aspect it got across,

Like it’s going to end all confusions tonight,

Like it’s the only time to plan everything right,

Like right now only, it can see the clear picture,

Like these moments are going to be very crucial for my future,

Making the wines out of every event happened today,

Taking me in and out of this imagination fray,

It’s strange how it’s the most difficult thing to restrain,,

And yet we make efforts to take whole world under our rein,

Call it important or just insomania,

Still it teaches some real aspects we ignore,

It’s our mind who holds power over all outer cores,

And it’s only responsible for every moment we live in disturbed state,,,

Best judgement lies with us

It starts with a self creation exposed to the world,

With mind blowing thoughts of getting applause,

Daydreaming about it to be considered as best,

And start feeling wonderful before that come to their behest,

And then few of them liked it,

With beautiful comments of praise and appreciation,

And few of them disregarded it,.

With some criticism and exploration of faults in its creation,

Oh! What has happened!

Everything suddenly starts feeling so bad,

And joyous heart suddenly become sad,

Thoughts starts pouring in and out,

Sharing it with world was biggest mistake,

Is it so bad ?

What has really made them to hate,

Thus world isn’t fair ,

It’s so bad to be here,,

That’s how we ignore good things,

Shifting focus on even if one bad thing come in,

We ignore there are still people who like us,

Why we need authentication of everyone,

Truth is one only we knows best about ourselves,

No-one can know us better than ourselves,

Be yourself with confidence and care free about people’s perceptions

You are unique and so is your creation,

Then why other should hold the key to our happiness or sadness ?

When best judgement lies only with us !!!

Roads are feeling lonely,

Streets are craving for a company,

Markets are plying for crowds,

Malls are convicted and put behind bars,

World is feeling being deserted,,,

Like everyone has deserted them,

Once being centre of attraction,

Now humanity has discarded and left them alone,

And feeling of worthless being all over them,

Finally humans are with humans,

Giving importance to humanity that has actual worth,

These times teaches these things their shallow importance,

Who often tries to take over importance of human worth,,
