    Beauty is the presence of God manifested in his creation to the conscious mind.

    To be seen, to be understood, to be admired for what and who you really are
    Isn't that what we ALL crave,

    But WHY are we so intent in RECEIVING IT from OTHER THAN OURSELVES ?

    Why are our HEARTS wounded when we do not RECEIVE this FROM THOSE WE SO DEEPLY WANT IT FROM

    FROM OUR FATHERS, OUR MOTHERS, OUR PEERS, OUR COMMUNITIES

    Isn't this the APPEAL OF FAME ?

    To be VALIDATED by MILLIONS, to KNOW that we are not only ENOUGH but SO MUCH MORE

    To breathe easy knowing that we are LOVED FOR WHO WE ARE AND NOT JUST FOR WHAT WE DO OR WHAT WE HAVE

    All of us have searched for this, only to discover that whatsoever VALIDATION we gain from the WORLD IS TEMPORARY AND FLEETING.

    NOTHING ON THE OUTSIDE can remedy this PERSISTENT HUNGER

    We must LOOK WITHIN and FEED IT WITH.. SELF ACCEPTANCE & GRACE

    THAT UNDERNEATH ALL THE RUBBLE OF THE EXTERIOR SELF

    WE ARE ENOUGH

    WE ARE TRULY ENOUGH

    Validation

    It seems darkness was before all else,
    Even when we think of NOTHINGNESS we visualise the dark, Empty void.

    Maybe at some point, LIGHT & ORDER emerged from
    this Chaotic darkness and when this LIGHT IS BURNT OUT THE DARKNESS WILL REMAIN

    Only for the LIGHT to RETURN and mock the Eternity of the Dark..

    It is all a part of the COSMIC COMEDY,

    We crave out LIFE with goals & dreams and achievements, we seek ORDER out of the MESSY SPACE OF CHOAS
    Only to be GREETED WITH DEATH..
    To be OVERCOME BY the VOID..

    So what are we to do ?
    In a world which there is no middle ground ?

    To LIVE is to BECOME LIGHT and RIDICULE CHOAS & DEATH

    To DIE is to be OVERCOME BY IT

    What is a dream?

    A star, leading to the shores of beauty ?
    A blossoming of the true self ?
    An Aim in an aimless world ?
    Or a rebellion against death ?

    From whence do they come from?
    And why are they so glorified?
    Is it a thing of Comfort for we frail creatures?

    In the bone chilling cold of the universe
    Does it warm our heart that we could BECOME something?

    That POWER & SIGNIFICANCE doesn't completely elude us.

    That somehow... even if only, for the Short period for which we LIVED
    We TRULY MATTERED

    What is a dream ?
    And what happens to those without it ?

    Do they BECOME dry, hallow, EMPTY creatures
    Devoid of SPIRIT
    Or
    Do they find PEACE with ALL THAT IS ?

    And moreover where should I find MY dream,
    In the feats of GREAT men ?
    In the Ancient scrolls of wise Sages ?
    In the expectations of my community?
    Or maybe something different Altogether?

    Maybe while we LIVE our deepest desire is EXPANSION,
    Maybe dreams are simply pathways of Expansion,
    And when we HUNGER for NOTHING,
    We BECOME NOTHING

    Why dear soul ?
    Why do you step into Fire knowing it will burn ?
    Are you so tired ?
    So burdened by the life you hitherto admired
    Why ?
    You know how this ends
    Why do you hurt yourself promising to make amends?

    "One more time.."
    One more time you say
    Till you lose yourself, to never return again..

    LUST

    Aphrodites has set her eyes on me..
    She calls me from every direction,
    She whispers to the depths of my soul..
    "Come to me..
    Come to me...
    Come drown your worries in my pleasure,
    Come taste peace in my ecstasy

    I am yours,
    Do you have the courage to take me ?
    Do you have the audacity to satiate these desires?

    Come to me,
    I am benign & deeply sweet,
    You have nothing to lose
    You have nothing to fear from me

    Come to me
    How long can you keep resisting my voice ?
    How long can battle your lust ?
    Just give in and be free
    End this needless turmoil in heart

    You've already tasted me,
    One more time will do no harm..

    RENAISSANCE
    Once upon a time,
    I was a shadow,
    Roaming about the world,
    Trapped in my own illusions,

    illusions of fear,
    illusions of hopelessness

    My Life often times felt like a mythic sword,
    Which I was unworthy to hold,
    And which I had no idea how to use..

    It wasn't until by and by that i learnt about the pen,
    The alchemist secret,
    Turning pain into beauty,
    And flaws into art,
    That I could overcome these illusions

    And move with about the earth, with purpose,
    With strength & vigor,
    And wield this mythic sword like a glorious warrior,
    to battle for truth, for beauty..
    And most importantly to battle for light.
