    Her shadows danced
    in hope of leaving
    her obstinate spirit
    that refuses to die out.

    Gold Hope, and Cape Tales

    Autumn Decay with Gold Leaf Dust
    Settling like the Dutch on her Pedestal shore. In the Magnificent days.
    The Holy Alter Of Table Flat Rock.
    A land with veins of yellow blood.
    The food for the goods of below.
    Gold, diamonds and marrow.
    Weavers, angelic Sparrows.
    A fine line between destruction,
    Beauty, lives, and duty.
    To honor red,
    Instead of Gold.
    To Pair it with Green.
    Watered from a well.
    Green and gold.
    Spring books,
    And
    The Veldt.
    The new world only saw white light.
    Not gifted with mineral restraint.
    If it was shiny and white.
    The felt safe from the shadows.
    Crows, black plagues and
    Indian Arrows.
    If it shined like their first born sun.
    They would thirst red,
    White and blue sky hues.

    Gold Rose For Those Few

    No fears
    Nor cheers
    Only peace
    In my tears.

    No war
    Nor blood
    Only recycling
    All the love.

    Must fight
    Split the air
    Breath brave
    From loving
    The sky.

    Open

    I think we live with a lot of closed doors. These doors are connected to our fears and our pain. They are connected to what we believe to be true about ourselves. They are connected to what we believe is possible for ourselves. They are things we treat as if they are dead and buried. They are our wraiths of hope and love. They are our demons of self-doubt and recrimination. If we can open and step through those doors, we can engage and become comfortable with what lies behind them.

    By not opening those doors, we are limiting our existence to one of reduced dimensions. We are narrowing our vision and allowing our world to be defined only by the things we choose to look at. If we are willing to embrace the idea of being open, and that by being open, new existences may become possible, we can radically alter the scope of what we feel is possible for us.

    Strength is :
    1-SMILING even though you're
    broken
    2-SHARING & TELLING your
    regardless how broken it is
    3-ADMITTING when you're HURTING
    & BROKEN
    4-ADMITTING you need HELP
    5-SCREAMING for help if you have to
    6-ACCEPTING anyone attempting to
    dressup your wounds
    Or
    with picking up your broken
    pieces
    7-strength is remembering that
    someone CARES about you
    when you've STOPPED CARING about
    yourself
    8 facing the toughest of days &
    The roughest of nights
    and still being able to realise
    That YOU'RE STILL HERE

    crying doesn't make you weak
    it can be soothing and healing
    shedding the tears to feel better

    so cry it out
    louder if you need to
    you're strong and ideal
    for enduring all that pain

    my friend called me a 'powerlady'
    cause i was strong and brave
    for being mindful about my emotions
    and enduring even if it's painful

    this made me to never feel ashamed
    of my own tears

    just like having sex
    an adult must do some crying too

    intense and necessary
    to find a release
    to feel alive

    To the Strong Girl, who deserve the best...

    To the strong girl,

    The girl who choose to accept rather than judge,

    The girl whose heart is so effortlessly full of love,

    The girl striving to do right in a world of wrong,

    The girl who has seen more hardships than happy days yet fights to remain strong,

    The girl who often struggles to find a place where she belongs,

    You deserve the world,

    You deserve the best of it..

    The evolution of pain

    The last thing that attempted
    to destroy me
    Must have
    Feared my strength
    Cause
    It unexpectedly run off
    leaving behind scars
    &
    How I'm so certain that it was my strength that was feared
    Cause
    With psychological bruises
    &
    Emotional scars
    day by day
    Bit by bit
    I'm still going

    I'll hold you up, I'll protect you with my heart.
    I might not be strong but it's the best I got

    I'll hold the pain, for you

    She was told to stop being herself
    But it wasn't like that for her
    she was hurt, traumatized
    but still chose to believe in love

    When you grow with trauma
    you choose how It Ends
    this was the end that she wanted
    to love unconditionally
    cause that's all she craved

    You don't have to understand
    It wasn't meant to be
    it made me happy
    isn't that everything

    Of course it was a lot to take
    the constant breakdown
    the complete blackout
    Teary Eyes, shattered heart
    but if you knew her
    you know she would choose it all over again

    She has been depressed, suffers from anxiety
    but if there was anything that she could change
    it would be the suffering
    to never see anyone go through what she goes through
    The constant battles, dealing pain

    A death ritual for herself
    to love everyone regardless of the pain
    to be a shoulder to cry on when there is no one else around
    reminding you that love still exist
    that fairy tales are not true
    that life isn't all golden
    there is no one there who will save you

    I've been through it and I am telling you that I can't be a silver lining
    I cannot make the pain go away
    all I can do is love you with all my heart and remind you that struggles may come and go

    but a promise from my side
    I am right here
    I'll hold the pain, for you

    Don't let something eat you up everyday because you will not be able to handle it later.
    Just like a wound left untreated can infect that part completely.

    If you ignore what’s bothering you, it will grow exponentially. Handle problems as they happen, not when they become too big to manage and little can be done.

    Am I 'Defensive'?

    Why is a woman who speaks her mind labelled defensive?
    Why is a woman's confidence measured against her tone of conviction?
    What is it that we should offer as an incentive
    To wash away the labels on us?
    Why is it a woman who prefers peace called weak..
    Doesn't it show her firm resolve and intelligent streak..?
    Since time immemorial, we have taken that iron clad resolve, forged ourselves to overcome centuries- old labels.
    Then why does it still fall short?
    Why is the grind consistent?
    Why are we still called defensive instead of being applauded for our straight forwardness..

    But you know what that these labels are not strong enough to stop our force, not anymore..
    We will run when we are expected to stand, we will laugh louder when we are expected to be coy..
    We will stand our ground...even if it is shaking..

    Dear Anxiety,

    You were always there for me during my toughest days and at times when I messed up. I don't blame you for my heavy breathing, throbbing beats, stammering voice, mixed emotions and thoughts or confidence getting killed. You are a part of me and I accept you just like every other existing emotion. You live within me not as a 'trigger' but as a 'teacher' who teaches me that sometimes, I need to fear in order to grow and step out from my 'comfort zone'. I'm still walking on that path to meet a good end and I carry you on my shoulders each time I decide to take a step ahead. I fear alot, I think alot and it's you who witnessed me all the time and made me feel alive. It's silly to say this, but thank you! It's you who brings out the best in me.
    Someday, let's meet and have a cup of coffee together and accept our existence. Without you, I can't dare to do great things. Life is thrilling because of you.

    With love,
    Me. A 'so called' writer.

    Money That Kills

    As doctors without good will
    And the necessary skills
    Buy their way into medical schools
    Through shameful money bills,
    The Poisonous Greed grows.

    So when a patient arrives ill
    They don’t hesitate
    To maim or kill
    If it means making the same money bills.
    And as this forsaken system crumbles,
    Many doctors with degrees
    Become armed murderers and thieves.

    Brewing About

    Lost in the wreckage the storm has now passed. Memories last lifetimes. The people within them when the memories are built upon, unfortunately do not last. As much as we wish upon a star it’s just not possible. My heartaches, it’s broken in so many pieces. Taken advantage of time, I plead guilty. I am at fault. Lives are busy trying to just stay afloat. And you are a failure at seeing the worst before the end. I am at least. Storms they pass by, taking their dark cloud that was formed with them as they go. The storms that are inside of us, they stick around. Brewing about. We can’t let them out, that would be to simplistic. Taking turns & carrying the dark clouds that follow them. Consuming so much energy you once had built up. Thinking you were doing so good. Then there is that eye of the storm to tear you right back down. Showing you just how weak you really are. Until it passes you are at a standstill. Standing. Waiting for the worst. With so much fury & fright you just hold on the best you know how. As you weaken, tearing you away piece by piece. It will take you years to rebuild. Rebuilding to heal all the wounds you have hidden away. Putting on a smile so nobody needs to worry. I’m guilty. I’m guilty mom, as you have taught me to do so. The strength I have never seems to fail me. It may now as I am starting to weaken. I hate to admit I am. I can’t tell a lie, as you see now firsthand. I will try to do the best I can. I promise.

    Perfume

    You wear a strong perfume
    To announce your presence in a room.
    You bottle in yourself, jealousy and toxicity
    And mask it with obnoxiously sweet perfume.
    You erect walls of lies
    And don’t treats others right
    Unless it put you in good light.

    You Discourage others but
    Seek the best for yourself.
    Tried to pull others down
    When they were finally wearing their crown.
    So now your smell chokes me,
    Because some scents are worse than others.
    They surround your heart in tendrils
    And clutch it too tight
    And not leave your lungs
    Even when you exhale with all your might.

    The Universe
    On this very same day,
    Millions and millions of light years away,
    A star is born
    And a galaxy is torn.
    Where both creation and destruction
    Can exist in perfect concordance
    Is one of the many curious miracles of this Universe.
    So at times when you feel hopeless and sad
    Don’t you worry lad.
    Realise, that your very existence is a rare phenomenon
    For you can dream and create just like this universe!
    You are more alive and vibrant than
    Any shooting star or supernova.
    So one night, when the sky is filled with celestial light,
    Tell yourself, till the end of time
    “The universe will look out for me”.
