LET GO

Let go of the fear that holds you back,

Let go of the tear and replace it with a smile,

Let go of the procrastination and go do it,

Let go of the past not worth pursuing,

Let go of all the hurtful things people said,

Derive strength from your weakness,

Let in only those in your life who are worth your time,

As quoted by Paulo Coelho “Nobody is worth your tears, and the one who is won’t make you cry.”

THE DECEPTIVE PERFORMER

Called as a wizard, spell caster or a magician,

He creates a stage of illusion,

Audiences are entertained by tricks of the mind,

A dream come true to many,

The magician performs his greatest acts of performance,

Waves his magic wand in the air,

Speaks magic spells and things come out of thin air,

A performance specially crafted,

Drawing the crowd to the elaborate charade,

Though none can see the deception,

Executing the greatest trick up his sleeve,

He captures the audiences with his invisible charm,

Ends with a gentle bow and a standing ovation from the crowd…

The Quietness

A sheet of layer of dust on the tables,

The chairs have not been sat on,

A dingy room and smell of staleness in the air,

The dark corners covered with webs in thick layers,

No one has visited this town,

A deserted look as you enter,

Where are the people gone?

One can hear the silence nevertheless yet so loud….

Within

Deep inside the search begins for peace and quiet,

Deep inside the mind makes noise forbidding the clarity of thought,

Deep inside when fears become reality,

And the mask you wear falls off,

Your emotions are seen by everyone,

But felt only by those few,

Happiness and joy so many come along,

When sadness comes upon,

Very few come by,

Deep inside the way must be found,

Deep inside within is the key towards light…

The Barren Lands

In the desert in the vast sand dunes and empty landscape,

With no rain the heat never ceases thereby hurting the feet,

For miles and miles nowhere to rest and only warm sandy breeze,

Beneath the blazing sun the cactus flowers bloom,

The trees are barren,

High up in the sky I see hawks circling nearby,

Trying to find my way through with no water and no food,

Long barren stretches all the way with no sign of any life,

Lost in a desert I see a tree is on the bank of a pond of water,

I quickly run towards it but it seems to be moving further away,

Then I realize it is a mirage that I see on this warm sunny day,

Sand storms begin to arise,

As a steady wind begins to blow,

Fine sand lying on the ground begin to vibrate,

Unable to take the heat anymore I fall down and faint,

When I wake up,

I find myself in an old run-down place,

I open my eyes and thank my stars for being safe,

And decide to never get lost in the barren lands again.

The Creative Mind

The mind can travel anywhere to any place,

Create stories and experience life in a different way,

Build over places visited in reality and dreams,

Create our own colorful world fill it with imagination and life,

Be any season we can create spring,

The mystery and the curiosity to venture to the unknown,

When imagination and creativity get together a writer is born..

The Prayer of a Tree

We were many some years ago,

Now we are only a few,

Weird sounds huge monsters like,

Crossed our path and removed everything in sight,

Let us live and let us stay,

Our branches represent care and extend and provide shade,

In the summer we dry up and wait for the rains,

The trunks arching in the woods and children playing in their tree houses,

People enjoy the fruits and I circle them with my roots,

I give you air,

I give you life,

With the oxygen I provide you survive,

Plant more seeds and water every day for I will provide you with all the happiness in every way,

Give the gift of tree let the birds sing free…

DOWN THE STREAM

Way down the stream,

The water is at its peak,

Caught in the waves I swirl around,

The stream ahead joins the sea,

I am eager to reach the bigger waters,

From there on I reach the shores,

Where it is safe for me,

On my way,

I catch the eye of young children playing nearby,

They are amused by me,

They watch me and play with me,

and let me go my way,

My journey is a tough one to take,

For the waters are deep,

I am just a small boat I may sink or cast away,

But yet I continue in these aggressive waters,

Conquering all the hurdles in my way,

For my destination is unknown,

I follow the path of the sea and go with it wherever it leads…

Story of Life

Life ! An ocean of possibilities,

A string of relationships,

A beautiful confusion to be sorted by decisions,

An obstacle crossing course,

Life! A desperation to survive for many,

A monotonous routine,

Life! a Trail of discovery and learning,

An unexpected surprise which every now and then arises,

Lies to be confronted by truth,

To some it is the thirst for power and greed,

Life! A combination of all the emotions put into an individual’s story……
