The Choice

A mountain of burden heavy to carry,

Shoulders with tangled knots,

Tired with worries,

Working around the clock,

No Sleep, No Rest

Life was definitely a test,

A line of hurdles to cross,

Finding the way or getting lost,

Each test is a pass or a fail,

At the end you choose the trail…

Within

Deep within the search begins for peace and quiet,

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,

Within those feelings of uncertainty,

Comes a feeling of hope,

Opening the doors within,

To a key of opportunity….

FORGIVENESS

Forgiveness is a decision of the heart,

It is a tough one but a kind one to start,

Mind contemplates these decisions,

But it’s about being positive,

Removing any negative inhibitions,

Anger and grief come along,

Someone hurts you badly that you fall down,

But its all about rising and letting it out,

Pain and sorrow are the feelings that arise now,

But you gotta keep going and remember,

“Sometimes in life you gotta be the bigger person and forgive even those who don’t deserve it and let it pass”

An Empty Space

“Everything was there, yet there was nothing”

“Loneliness took over and brought darkness along”

Emotions were out of place”

“The need to be more visible grew”

Insecurities clouded judgement”

“The ocean of thoughts, the waves that grew stronger day by day”

Creating an empty space…..

The Sound

Calm and soothing to the ears,

The music which I hear,

A rhythm and a tone that catches on,

A melody or a song,

Dancing to the beat,

And tapping my feet,

My ears feel the sound,

I enjoy drowning myself in the sound of bliss…

Remember When I am Gone

Remember those memories we created,

Those laughs and smiles we shared,

The long journeys we took together,

Holding hands on a beach and the water coming by and touching our feet,

That piece of cake we shared,

The celebrations with our families,

Remember when I am gone,

We have faced so much together,

We were pillars of strength to each other,

Through those sorrows and the up and down’s.

As we grow old together,

Leading a simple life,

Till the end forever,

Remember when I am gone…

A Walk

She went for a long walk,

No destination just across,

Just kept going and going,

Her feet wouldn’t stop,

She went for a long walk,

Her mind full of thoughts,

Worries for what was to come,

Her tomorrow seemed so lost,

There was a sense of fear of the future,

She took a pause from her walk,

Sat on a bench around the corner and gave it a thought

Her mind was not calm she couldn’t think right

A decision could not be taken today,

So she continued her walk in a hope to find a way…

The Quietness

Sometimes when things don’t work your way,

When you feel your troubles are just getting over,

More comes your way,

You are tired and exhausted and you try to see the best in every way,

But all seems blank,

You want to believe things will be fine ,

But hope seems to disappear away,

Mind so still,

No thoughts no feelings inside,

It’s so quiet inside that the noise outside cant be heard at all….

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….

Silent Tears

Withholding it not knowing when they would flow,

Looks like small drops well settled at the corner of the eye,

Waiting to make their way down,

Sadness has brought them,

Now they refuse to go,

No matter how much you control they decide to flow,

People say once they flow your heart feels light,

But these are tears way old and dry,

Holding them back so long,

Now I have finally decided to let them out and cry….
