    //It's a tough world out there and when you feel scattered like those gemstones of a broken necklace; this world constantly tries to pull you down– in the abyss of Saudade.

    Everyone faces tough situations at many points. But whatever happens, you must stand for yourself. If hope might not show her presence everytime, I should be the hope yourself, for your own precious self. Even if today's sunrise is cloudy, there is hope that the orange star might shine the next day....

    With feathers of joy, let's live each moment conquering our fears and tell the universe that we are one of those stars who still shine on falling//

    In a world where you feel cold,
    You gotta 'Stay Gold'
    ----- J. K.

    Here Princesse Dorée means The Golden Princess in French (I just tried giving a French literary touch to this, so do correct me if I am wrong anywhere!)

    ___________________________________________________

    ~Guerrière~


    It lies there– in the viridescent strath
    –My kingdom of sangria Fleur-de-lis,
    Whence buoyancy rollicks–salubrious
    Whence melancholia is a penumbra,

    My palais– it is of perle and mabre,
    –And my crown–it is pure émeraude,
    I ain't on my throne; the Princesse Dorée
    –On my unicorn 'Bonheur'– I sallied

    A princesse–with a baïonette adorned!
    Her stiff hands rested on rufous halberds,
    Eulogize her face–on it a casque lies,
    Atop her steel heart–is a silver shield,

    I–the guerrière–waged many a war,
    –With those palatinates of barbarism
    I couldn't defeat them–nay, I can't still,
    But–I didn't let their bugles horn up proud,

    A broken spear–a half pierced arrow–
    Murky gore–on my face and rosy lips,
    The merciless wind–condemned me–
    'Madame! Forsooth–thy heart shalt stop'

    'Twas a battle–against my own fears–
    My vizier named trepidation– I fight with,
    For a servant of mine; fear should be one–
    And not it's slave–shall ever be my mind,

    Will I be the princesse – safeguarding–
    Her tiara–embellished by hessonites?
    Or will the monarch perish–shattered
    –her reign dwindling away deplorably?

    And then– with each bruise and scar,
    My amulet blazes– it's my own courage–
    Which radiates–and penetrates my soul
    –I once again–with broken old weapons
    –Stitch fragments of my iron heart

    /With a warcry– the lady knight's voice doth capture the skies,
    The war she won– the diadem of her faith; on her
    pate–still lies/

    Guerrière

    With fire simmering in my eyes
    I sway away mightily–
    The rain pours; the sand blows,
    I glance into the demon–

    Hark–The cannons fire, it's time!
    –Fireballs surge on my army,
    Defeat calls me–I don't have much
    might
    Still–I will not abandon this fight...

    This is about the agony I have undergone during the hospitalisation of my dear father who was everything for me. He had suffered almost for one year and finally he was diagnosed as lung cancer. The title Do I need this Agony? Was said by him at the last stage when he was brought home. I had a great loss of losing my father.


    Life has its own ebb and flow
    Everything has time to grow
    Like finding the depth of ocean
    Explore it with passion
    A man with self determination
    Sailed out his life with a motivation
    Overcoming whirl pool with never give up
    Struggled, tossed, yet growing up
    Had a close knit family
    Showering love that flowed naturally

    A 'walking encyclopedia' he was
    Who lived for a cause
    His world is his daughter
    Protecting her in each step like fighter
    His life filled with sorrow
    Lost his father at his early age a hollow
    Learned to survive with his own hands
    On his own he stands
    Yet he was content
    Whatever he had he spent

    Giving in as much as love for daughter
    His desire shone in brighter
    As girls are not kept at home
    His "apple of eye" left cozy home
    She was happy in her new family
    Growing up on her own happily
    Got the new title as grandpa
    Filled with an awe
    She turned to be lucky charm
    Who with her smile kept warm

    As every tale has a villain
    His happiness slowly driven
    He(villain) was hiding in
    Whom he was trying to win
    Spreading, ruling over his lungs
    'The Scorpion' got clung
    Eating away his breath
    Knocking down with icy hands of death
    I as a daughter was helpless
    But to pat up myself bringing in courage
    'I am proud of you', 'Be Bold'
    Was his last message to his dearest pie..

    In my life the taboo of being called weak and sensible have always tormented me. Even, after huge struggles the voice of mine seems unheeded. So thought of creating my anthem as a voice for every eve like me... ❤

    I Am No Weak...

    July 25 , 2020

    I want a place in heaven,
    Dreams coming true as I have woven.
    Life is hard, I know that too,
    Coming forth, I need to face without much ado.

    But is it wrong to ask for a paradise?
    The mind diverts and I know it is not wise.
    Still, I am ready to face the hurdles as they come by ,
    The sun is the limit, but I will shine high.

    They say "You come alone, you go alone",
    'Focused', 'determined' are the only seeds that I have sown.
    But I reach a state when I am all too helpless,
    The need for affection combined with my selflessness.

    The perfect person that I want to become,
    'Powerful', 'dignified' should be the words for my outcome.
    I over think, maybe I am broken.
    But I vow to never let it become my token.

    I am ready to face the hurdles as they come by,
    The sun is the limit, but I will shine high.

    Battle

    His results had just come out
    Tension in the atmosphere was rising
    The television popped up his name
    Family was wailing, thinking of it as shame

    He hid himself, shocked with glee
    Little sister was dancing free
    He was in merit list, no one thought
    A miracle was suddenly at doorstep brought

    Family gained calmness, understood the message
    The son had an achievement under his name
    Sweets were brought, a bite grabbed by him
    Ran out his steps to celebrate with friends

    Unable to control excitement, he ran on the road
    Not being alert about traffic, helter-skelter were his steps
    The son had to talk to his bestie, hurried steps on the road
    Hit by a truck, he fell on the spot; eyes damaged to the core

    Ambulance was called, family informed
    Operation took hours; happiness turned to doom
    The son had lost his sight but not hope
    He was thinking of alternative career with a wide scope

    His voice was good, videos were now a target
    Daily practice resumed once back home under medication
    The soulful voice soon got a recognition
    The son's songs went viral, he became a celebrity

    Fame touched his name, he was sought by producers
    An event in life altered his track; did not take it negative to be sacked
    Fought all odds to become a role model for many
    Personal empowerment via inner strength are valiant swords for any battle

    ��THIS CHALLENGE IS CLOSED��

    *PERSONAL EMPOWERMENT CHALLENGE*

    "Say it With Strength" Saturday.

    Every so often throughout life, we're attacked by assailants, victimized by vigilantes, and harassed by haters. It's in those exact moments that our inner warrior rises up valiantly, bravely makes its presence known, and firmly declares and establishes exactly who we are in the form of a battle cry, a mission statement, or a personal anthem; much like the one I've included here, penned by the English poet William Ernest Henley in 1875.
    So for the purposes of today's challenge, I want you to do exactly that. Imagine a time when you were under attack, let your inner warrior rise up, and write a poetic battle cry (of 40 lines or less), that tells this world not only who you are, but also that you refuse to be thwarted or defeated.
    Please follow all the instructions completely, and see the do's and don'ts below.

    DO's and DON'Ts
    -Do read the Invictus poem to get an idea of what a battle cry is.
    -Do write your poem in English.
    -Do submit within 24 hours.
    -Do enter one submission only.
    -Do not plagiarize.
    -Do not use hate speech.
    -Do not use foul language.
    -Do not use nude/obscene images.
    -Do not write about political topics.

    DURATION: The challenge runs for 24 hours from the time of posting. It's officially closed when it says "1d" in the upper right corner of this post.

    REQUIRED HASHTAG: Be sure to use #cees_anthem_chall in your caption area.

    *Please support your fellow participants by reading and commenting on their submissions, as well as reposting, to increase visibility.

    Happy writing! ��✍
