    The prompt I gave myself was, "Something that makes you feel safe." I quietly realized I couldn't come up with anything.

    Imagination Infiltration

    This brain doesn't process "safety"
    correctly-
    inside these synapses,
    it doesn't even exist.
    I'm always sitting rigid, waiting
    for the other axe
    to graze my face,
    looking for traps in everything I see,
    monsters in everyone I meet-
    while the horrors
    I never thought to look for
    spread out of those bodies
    who birthed me,
    and their freakish behavior
    I never knew wasn't normal
    raised me up
    within splintered dreams.

    My imagination kept me protected
    when there was no safe reality
    to return to-
    but even that place
    has been infiltrated by demons.
    That safety I always felt,
    manufactured by my young mind,
    left far too many cracks and holes
    for beasts to sneak into.

    What I thought was safety
    in escapism,
    was really exposure
    to more sickness.
    Running to the television,
    to let my emotions go-
    finding comfort in characters
    I thought I could love,
    characters who I imagined
    could save me, and take me
    far away from the darkness
    of haphazard family violence-
    characters I connected to
    and still can't remove
    from my grieving heart;
    they were tainted from the start,
    written by demented men,
    dangerous and barbaric to begin with-
    motives a desperate young girl
    was too blind to recognize.

    Villains have infected
    everything I loved,
    everyone I thought I could trust,
    realize they've never trusted me-
    my childhood
    was riddled with them,
    hiding inside absolutely
    everybody;
    how am I supposed to pull
    their influences out of me
    like rotting organ meat?
    It is never that easy
    when their abuses
    helped shape me,
    their injustices created me-
    devastated me irreversibly.

    Now that they're being
    unceremoniously uncovered,
    we all, as grown men and women,
    must have a reckoning
    with ourselves, put our darlings
    and our biases all aside,
    to see how we can move on
    without what we once loved.
    There is no simple solution,
    no judgement in journeys-
    but a winding trek must be taken
    once we've seen the truth
    behind the veil,
    with new knowledge that
    willful ignorance hurts yourself,
    and most importantly,
    the survivors, who were wrecked-
    body, mind, and spirit-
    in ways you will never
    fully understand...

    Artless, apathetic fools,
    see what you
    can possibly live with now-
    and maybe one day,
    after pushing past your hindrances,
    we will reconcile and mend
    our imaginations once again.

    Was it wrong to be Born One or Trust Any?

    Been an introvert,
    Was compelled to turn out to be one for the sake of safety,
    It happened yet,
    Again and again;
    With trust and distrust;
    Freckles trapped in toxicity!
    Tears filling nostrils,
    Slowly wishpering to have the pleasure bearing it!
    Twitching in hopes;
    Sweat and fears dunked in;
    For it was not willing to lift the parched body,
    The path leading appeared dark!

    For she ain't a boy?
    Hardly a girl, merely a kid
    Thought it was a hallucination!
    But it's apparent that it is a matter of expectations;

    Was it wrong to be born one?
    Nothing is as concerning like the truth!

    You probably inferred ,but still hold it

    Lighthouse

    Lost at sea, waves carrying me farther,
    As I panic; searching for a way out.
    Hurricane winds pulling and pushing,
    Which way do I go?

    Spotting a low gleaming light,
    Calling to me through the storm.
    Currents try to deter my path.
    I must make it.

    With open shores there you are,
    Lighthouse guiding me to safety.
    Welcoming me to where I belong,
    I am home after the beaten path.

    Covid-19

    Tiny virus ruling the nation
    Proved that mankind is a notion..
    Whole world locked and without motion...
    Still we fight and have the motivation...

    Stay safe.. Wear your mask...
    Get your shot soon...

    Sure

    My favorite place is the spot between your collarbone and shoulder.
    That hollow of soft skin where I breathe deep. Where I begin my decent. Not the neck, although I love to hide there as well, but this is my special place on you.

    While we lay there and I place my cheek against your skin and the endorphins fill my brain,
    killing pain,
    erasing the disappointment of the day.

    This is my home, my sure thing. The place I can always go.

    We are solid, you and I
    Our foundation concrete, the bones of this house have stood through so many storms and hardships, so much grief and pain that has raged against the walls, chipping a little plaster at times or breaking a window pane, even yanking doors off hinges, but never bringing it down.

    This place, between your shoulder and collarbone is where I come to rebuild. Where we connect and make it stronger than it was before.

    Tomorrow

    Destruction is on the horizon
    Devestation won't be ignored
    You'll be disappointed trying to avoid it
    All you can do is keep moving forward

    You can't keep your job forever
    One day your friends will turn their backs
    Family will go off on their own endeavors
    And your love will leave you for what you lack

    Hopes and prayers won't stop what's coming
    Neither will wishing those days away
    Best enjoy the peace so long as you have it
    Tomorrow will be a kinda different day.

    Dear God,

    Are you not listening to the cries of your creation?
    Can you not see the devastation that's rattling the world today?
    The dead burned and buried like cattle herds.
    Without a moment given to loved once to celebrate their life and mourn for their loss.

    Are we punished for all our atrocious acts?
    Why are the innocent suffering at the sinner's expense?
    How long will you hold your silence?
    How long will you turn away your gaze from us?

    Save us with your mighty hand.
    Pull us away from this dread.
    Don't let us wither away before our time.
    Is this the beginning of the end?

    Dohe

    Rahimdas
    Rahiman ghar se jab chalo rakhiyo mask lagaye
    Na jaane kis vesh me corona mil aaye

    Kabirdas
    Kabira karha pijiye kaali mirch milay
    Raat dudh haldi piyo subah pijiye chai

    Tulsidas
    Chhota sanitizer tulsi rakhiye jeb
    Na kohu so mangiyo na kohu ko deb

    Surdas
    Surdas ghar me raho yeh hai sabse best
    Jar jukaam sardi lage turant karalo test

    BID ME COME

    I have sailed for too long
    on this boat I made
    with the failing arm
    of my weak flesh
    the waters of this boisterous sea
    rage unendingly
    but for your great mercies
    I should have gone under
    Lord, if it be you I see
    bid me come off my boat
    walking on water
    into the safety of Your ship.

    So , most of the ppl know abt sex-selective abortion.
    It is the practice of terminating a pregnancy based upon the predicted sex of the infant.
    It's mainly done in girl child case which means male children are more valued as compared to female children.
    According to me , abortion is a murder.
    No one has right to kill anyone before his /her birth.


    As mentioned above in the poetry , a girl child is telling her feelings to her mother nd blaming her also that her mother is killing her. So .. absolutely no, in most of the cases , the mothers are forced by their family to abort the girl child.
    There is no intension to blame only a mother for the abortion.

    Thnkyou @_aradhana di for suggesting me this topic❤️✨

    कन्या भूण हत्या..

    एक बेटी अपनी मां के कोख से अपनी मां को कहती है-
    "क्या डर शब्द से मेरी मुलाकात करवा रही हो..
    जिंदगी की शुरुआत डरने से करवा रही हो..?
    या कहीं..तुम जीने का हक मुझसे छीन रही हो..
    एक लड़की हूं..इसकी सजा तुम दे रही हो..?
    मां तुम खुद एक बेटी हो..एक बेटी की जान क्या तुम ले पाओगी..?
    पर डर शब्द से मेरी पहचान तुमने करवा दी..
    दुनिया को देखने की मेरी इच्छा अब तुमने मरवा दी..।।
    इस दुनिया में मेरा अस्तित्व होगा या नहीं..या बस एक शरीर कहलाऊंगी..।
    'तुझे तेरी मां के कोख में ही मार देना चाहिए था'- बार-बार यह सुनवाई जाऊंगी..।।
    मां तुम खुद एक बेटी हो..एक बेटी की जान क्या तुम ले पाओगी..?
    मां..
    सबसे अनजान..पर तेरी जान..
    अब मरने के लिए सक्रिय है..।
    क्योंकि अब रोशनी से ज्यादा मुझे अंधकार प्रिय है..।।"

    समाज की आंख पर तो पर्दा है..।
    पर एक मां तो देख सकती है कि
    एक बेटी का उसकी कोख से बाहर आना एक स्पर्धा है..।।
    निर्दयता को ये समाज दे देता है मात..।
    एक बेटी के जन्म से पहले ही करवा देता है
    असुरक्षित शब्द से उसकी मुलाकात..।।

    Let the world sleep,
    We can mummer in our ears;
    Under the bedsheet of dark clouds.
    Once bedsheet tears,
    We will disappear into sky;
    As a star to come down,
    To unite, glow amidst choas.

    Masks

    Pandemic times
    Fear in the air
    Everywhere you go
    Masks are the norm
    Eat and drink exceptions
    Friends and family missed
    Lock down blues
    Waiting for the day
    Vaccine down the way
    Can't wait
    Nature's greeting kiss.

    Nobody's gonna remember
    When she screamed for mercy.

    Neglecting the horrible aspects of childhood,
    They ignored her tears again.

    She was silent as a still image
    But her eyes told all the story.

    She was just five,
    What about billion years old soul?

    How she could explain that,
    How they "touched" her in the dark.

    Inside a locked room, middle of the night,
    She begged to not to give her pains,

    But she didn't knew the demons,
    With whom her people left for her safety..

    They kept fingers on lips,
    When she tried to raise voice.

    If she do so,
    She became the family destroyer.

    Being the little girl of the family,
    Everyone loved her intelligence.

    But behind the walls,
    they used her soft body too...

    They took care about length of her skirt,
    But no-one tried to look for lusty demons she was surrounded with..

    She begged again,
    Feeling the death being alive,
    But That night,
    She caught the most familiar face
    as a demon hungry for her body..

    He said " shhhhhhhhhhhhhh! Don't tell that to anyone! Otherwise they will kill you...!!"

    And that kept going on..


    WE ALL ARE FAMILIAR TO THIS,
    BUT NOBODY'S GONNA SEE IT,
    INSPITE OF KNOWING EVERYTHING...

    Apna promotion karne,
    Dusro ko neecha dikahne
    Ki bhai jo bhi ho, ladke kabhi galti karte he ni hai
    Bechare pyaar mein dhoka khate hai hamesha jabki sabka real nahi rahega aur zyadatar galti unka rahega
    .
    .
    Bhai log, kaafi ladkiya bhi dhokha khaaye hai par kisi ladke ke comment pe jaake nahi bolti jitna ladke pecche parte hai,
    Kyu inn ladko ko sabit karna hai ki vo kutte hai.

    मैने देखा है

    परिंदों से भरा वो शहर था,
    ना जाने कैसे दरिंदों से भर गया है,
    वादियों में छुपा वो शहर था,
    ना जाने आंसुओ में कैसे डूब गया है,
    लगता था जैसे कुदरत ने उसे खुद तराशा था,
    ना जाने किसने पैरों तले कुचल दिया है,
    खुदा ने उसे जनत के तोहफों से नवाजा था,
    ना जाने क्यों जहन्नम में वो बदल दिया गया है,
    मैने तो उसे परिंदों के साथ ही देखा था,
    ना जाने क्यों अब वो दरिंदो से भरा हुआ दिखता है।।

    Forget safety.
    Live where you fear to live.
    Destroy your reputation.
    Be notorious.
