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™‚

2022

2022, you are brutal
You kill me
You despise me
And make me feel
As if everything I did
Wasted
My efforts
My hard earned
Back to square one

2022, thank you
For a raise
I didn't deserve
You challenged me
Bombarded with
Struggle
And Over-time
But that's what
Growth demands


2022, you're still here
Laughing at me
While I rant
But I ain't giving up
Beyond limits I
Rise
& Shine
My silver lining
On the other side

Mending

People can put you through shit
And yet act like it's your fault

Then they'll do that over again
And say they were just afraid

You'll see them spill out what's in them
Only to realize you were in delusion

That's how you know you were but the one
Know your worth and walk away

I know it hurts to know not everything
you thought and dreamt and felt was true

But never let them take you for granted love
And never let them take away the best in you
