Take Charge

For once I thought,
It’s enough.
The pain.
The anguish.
The lamenting.
Let it just be done.
For once and for all.
And cherish the beauty of now.
The power it holds.
Life could be messy right now.
But it couldn’t be any better too.
Things might be shady.
But when has it not been?
If not this, the other.
And well, we know now,
it’s never easy peasy.
So just stop complaining.
And embrace what you have.
Many crave for this comfort.
Work their ass off for this job.
Many save lakhs just to visit home.
Or wait tirelessly for a vacation.
Feel blessed for today.
For you cannot hold all of world’s joy at once.
And that is okay.
It shouldn’t stop you from being grateful.
I wanted to write something utterly beautiful today.
But anyway, not every day could be a writers’ day.
So I just pour the thoughts in blank verse.
And let them find their meaning.
While I discover mine.

PS: Feeling confident, sharing positive vibes πŸ™‚

The Birthday Letter

I love to write birthday notes and letters for my friends. However, this year, I wrote one for myself. This was when I was super busy at work, but needed self love to the most πŸ™‚

Happy birthday hera,

Today you turn 26. It doesn't feel good to say though, but you are aging like a fine wine, just keep the fats away, will you? You look beautiful, however. I am just trying to say that you need to work on your lifestyle. You cannot sit upto 12-16 hours on your computer and expect a healthy life, you know what I am saying?

Complains apart, I wanna tell you that you are my star. You have come a long way my girl, and I know you'll do good. Just hold on, okay. This too shall pass. And can I reuse the quote - 'what doesn't kills you makes you stronger'. Besides, congratulations for making it to a new job in 2022. You genuinely deserve this raise, so stop misjudging yourself. And you are doing fine. Just think about your learning curve, it's advancing exponentially can't you see? Let me tell you a secret, this is just the beginning of the good times; your good days. You are going to be rock strong, believe me I know the emotions inside of you and how they keep trying yo pull you to the bottom, but hey, I know you. I know you are not ordinarily ordinary, okay. You be good. You are gonna be something. Something that someone can look up to.

I got so much of deep talking to do, maybe we should have a call someday. It would save either of us our time. But for tonight, sending you love, hugs, and simply positive vibes πŸ™‚

Gold

It's difficult explaining anybody why I must stay aloof
For nobody gets how I need to keep my heart safe
How important it is to not let it break
To not let any stranger create a wreck

I already got too much in my head space
My heart breaking with familiar ache
Ruins of days that still walk past by
Memories that never say goodbye

I don't know if anyone is capable of holding
The heart so tender a thing that it is
You need to be truly a man to know
How to hold a heart of gold
