"....have patience with everything unresolved in your heart and to try to love the questions themselves as if they were locked rooms or books written in a very foreign language. Don’t search for the answers, which could not be given to you now, because you would not be able to live them. And the point is to live everything. Live the questions now. Perhaps then, someday far in the future, you will gradually, without even noticing it, live your way into the answer.”
― Rainer Maria Rilke, Letters to a Young Poet

Selfie Saturdays #12

Happiness is being still..
Listening to the sound of silence within you..
Appreciating every passing second..
Being aware of every breath you take..
Knowing in that very moment..
That you are ALIVE...!

Be so inspired by the life you want to live
That you fill your heart and soul with it..
You are the only one who creates your reality! Period.

Trust your instincts
Do what feels right
Listen to your heart
It always leads you in the right direction!!

As all of me
Stands on a wire
A part of me 
Is set afire
To seek yet find
The weak in my mind
To kill what wasn't
To perfect what isn't
Living on the edge
Building my sledge...

There and back again...

Like a new song now
That's flowing down
A river of lyrics
Music and limericks

What wouldn't I give
To sing out loud
Every note strung strong
As my heart beats along

What you make of your life 
Is totally up to you
But what you let life make of you
Is the truest test of your character...!

Life halts
Life hiccups
Life swerves
Life thrills
Life loves
Life seeks
Life finds
Life remembers
Life changes
Life goes on..
Choose wisely
Coz life's worth it...!

Death is but the beginning,
The beginning of the end,
The end of who you were 
And who you were,
Is nowhere close to who you are meant to be!

An eye opener
A time turner
A life churner
An ego burner

Selfie Saturdays #6

Amidst white shores 
Walk triumphant oaths
Unto those stars you gaze
Let your dreams come forth
Run swift now, unfazed
Amidst sweeping waves 
And changing capes
Run now! As fast as you can!
Unto them dreams 
That for so long, from you have escaped...

A willing mind
Walks gently now
It will in darkness find
A path long left somehow

A trusting heart
Breaks the silence
Wagering paths apart
 Moulding conscience

A steadfast grip
Upon dream's threshold
It cannot let slip
What faith must unfold...

Sometimes you've just gotta stop letting things get to you
Sometimes you've just gotta go with the flow
Sometimes you've just got to ignore the 'insensitives'
Sometimes you've just gotta do your thing...

Selfie Saturdays #4

First of all I'd like to apologise for not being able to post any Selfies the last few weeks. Been travelling + Lack of  access to good internet connectivity. Well, am back home, so keeping up with the momentum is no longer an issue!!:))

So here's today's Selfie :

Take the road less travelled. 
Forge a way of your own. 
If you get lost,
you at least know your way back!
If you make it,
you leave a path unfound, behind..

'Living life to the fullest
 is learning
 to love yourself first

'Sometimes keeping things simple
is the most complicated thing 
that you will ever do 
only to realise the beauty
of it's simplicity in the end!'

Which also reminds me of the fact that:
'Everything is simple if you'd only let it be..!'

If only I had the answers...

Why is it that some scars simply refuse to heal?
Why is it that some memories return to haunt you over and over again?
Why is it that when you could once feel the pain, you can't feel it any longer?
Why is it that there is always someone around the corner to break your trust?
Why is it that death constantly feels like an easy way out?
Why is it that 'depression' fails to leave it's hinges?
Why is it that you give permission to people to hurt you one more time when they just did?
Why is it that when life just starts looking up you unconsciously shy away from it?
Why is it that you feel lonelier that the loneliest you have felt?

Here I am...

Here I am
Notice me
I can see you
But, can you?

I'll stay
As long as you want
Standing right here
Like always

I felt this back then
I think I feel it now
Not sure anymore
What this is?
How can I tell?

Selfie Saturdays #1

I've been thinking for awhile to make a list of all the 'A-HA' moments that hit me once in awhile. You know one of those times when you just realise something - whether it's about life, yourself, people around you, family, friendship, out of the box, crazy, funny, 'Oh hold on! This doesn't make any sense!' or 'You've gotta be kiddin' me!' liners. So finally I've come up with my 'Selfies' - Nope not the 'Look-at- me' pics taken by an extended arm kind but more of a 'This-is-what-i-think' liners of an extended mind kind!! I wanted to do it regularly so here I give u 'Selfie Saturdays'. Just stuff that I think is worth sharing rather than leaving it to be forgotten in my Random Access Memory..:)

So here's today's Selfie :

'Getting into photography is just like getting into a relationship - 
Exciting in the beginning, 
Confusing in the middle, 
Burn-out somewhere in between,
Passionate towards the end if it still gets you excited..
In the end you realise - The beginning will always be the best part of your story!'

I saw love and yet didn't
It was hiding behind my door
Crouching like a mouse
I didn't know what to do
But I took a step forward
Bent down a bit
And gave it a comforting look
It stared back still scared
What next I thought?
I fumbled, looking for the right words to pick on
See I didn't want to hurt it, even by chance
This was my first encounter with love
Never dreamt I'd run into it
In a state as such!
I reached out with my hand
Thought I'll help it stand upright 
Before anything was said and done
Love looked up with big, bold, beautiful eyes at me

You'll never know...

Never Know 
True love
Until it breaks 
Your Heart..

Never Know 
Real strength
Of character
Until it's
Tested infinitely..

Love someone...

Love someone, for love is real
Even if you have to stand and smile alone
Love someone, for who they are
Not what you hoped they would be
Love someone, inspite of love
You don't need a reason
Love someone, because you want to
Not to be loved back
Love someone, because you really do
Even if they don't

Wake me up...

The lyrics of the song 'Wake me up' by Avicii that inspired this poem..

It took awhile to realise
What this was,
That wasn't over

A step ahead
A step back
A hiccup of fear
I knew it clear

I took my time
With every line
On a canvas I drew
The thoughts words threw

Love is in the air...

Love is in the air
Take time to spare
Every moment bare
Its not what you wear!

Looking bleary eyed
Hair locks tied
Staring ahead wide
It's time...
Hop onto the ride...

A butterfly flutter
 A stomaching mutter
Make sure you don't stutter
It'll be as smooth as butter!

Thursday, May 8, 2014


A second's thought
A heart sought
As time bought
This moment caught

A silent dark
A night stark
Make your mark
Before the morning lark

Peacefully still
Observe every moment fulfill
A meditative thrill
The world's your window sill...

Love after love... by Derek Walcott

The best words that I've heard so far....so simple yet so profound...and 'head smashingly' true!!!:)

Tuesday, April 29, 2014


I tried, hold on
I fear, it's gone
To give up, I know not
To give in, I cannot

A heart untamed
Stunned and framed
Shush! It claimed
Every beat that flamed

Dear Nala...

Today is the first time I'm writing to you
Like an invisible soul mate 
I've been creating you for awhile now
Breathing life and shape into you
Carving you out of nothing but just my thoughts

Thursday, April 17, 2014


A spare room
Emptying space
A faint heartbeat
Thundering mind

A turn inward
Breathing consistent
A quiet sigh
Becoming aware

I am a stranger
While you can, remind me who I am
I search for me when I can
To know more, sometimes less
I saw a part of me run down a tunnel
I know not when..

I am a stranger
I look for me every now and then
Hoping to find the part I lost
Stumbling unseen down the tunnel
I peeked in every time to pen

Dare to dream...

I skipped a beat
Took a seat
Red as meat
What a feat!

Caught your eye
A quick high five
Was it hi? No bye?
Please don't lie!

Tracking time...

I don't know how to start
I don't know where to start
It's been so long
That time has seen us apart
With memories imprinted
Like a knife through my heart

I held on, I let go
Yes I did
I stepped forward, I moved on
Goodbye, I thought I bid
