A Second

Opening its arms to take me in,

The waves crashing against the rocks,

Sun shining bright on my face,

As I begin to descend my fall,

Standing at the edge of the cliff,

My heart races, Palms sweaty

I close my eyes and take a deep breathe,

This is it ,

The time has come to overcome the fears,

I count in my mind missing a few numbers in anxiety,

Finally its time I jump,

In mid air I feel free and for a second my heart skips a beat,

The next moment the time moves so fast,

I am in water swimming in the sea,

Making my way to the shore for a gasp of breathe,

I made it and I sigh in relief….


The Hard Way

A fact but true,

Decisions are hard,

The hardest are the ones which may have a consequence in the future,

The dilemma of taking the right step,

One wrong and you are stuck in the rut,

There is a lot at stake,

Past experience is a learning,

But desperation is another ball game,

How do you take decisions,

At the end whatever you do you are at blame,

Decisions of all,

Is a very tricky one,

You never know when you will fall in the pit and may never rise again….


Emptiness and a feeling of belonging nowhere,

Trying to find that steady hold on to something,

Trying to cope up with things life throws at me,

I just seem to be living day by day,

Going with the flow as they say,

With each passing day as the time passes by,

Until one day I will realize I haven’t lived my life at all

The Voice

The sadness hidden somewhere in that anxious laugh,

That drop of tear in the eye held back waiting to fall,

The voice in the head speaking aloud ,

Everything is going to be fine…

A Contract

Terms unbreakable,

A bond so unwillingly false,

Tight and close,

No room for negotiation,

A signature,

Desperate times,

No choice seems the only choice,

Seemed right for future then,

Followed by Regret and no way out,

A contract a trap,

You keep falling only to realize how deep you are in it….

A Void

A feeling that cannot be explained,

Thinking aloud,

Trying to see beauty in everything,

A quietness so within that silence seems loud,

A sadness within that happiness,

Emptiness so empty that nothing seems to fill that void…

A Billion Dollar Smile

No matter what life brought them,

One thing that they held proudly,

Was their billion dollar smile,

Priceless but worth much more,

Alms help and gifts help them survive,

They accepted with a smile on their faces,

The smallest to smallest joy was celebrated,

Simple things brought them happiness,

No money , Nothing could compare,

To the billion dollar smile….

Recipe of Life

Mix sugar for happiness,

Lemon for sourness of sorrow,

Mix chilli for challenges,

Blend disappointments with achievements,

Create a sauce for curiosity,

Add it with a pinch of salt,

Enrich the flavor that comes out of life,

Spice it up with a bucket list,

Leave left overs for bad decisions,

Add some good ones for the final touch and seasoning,

There you have it the recipe of life!!

The path was long,

Sun bright shining on ,

Mirage of water appears,

Bathing in sweat, Feet swollen

The path never seems to end….

Every step becomes a burden,

Every move becomes difficult,

Its a long way to go along the unexplored road…

The Spinning Wheel

The giant wheel of life where there are ups and downs,

The seesaw which rocks from side to side,

A feeling that everything is uncertain and gone,

Those dashing cars,

Where you were hit many times and still made it through the fall,

Every time the spinning wheel turns,

It points to what is to come,

The wheel of life makes everyone forget who they actually are ,

At the end of it we all still manage to survive,

As the roller coaster ride doesn’t even stop for a while…
