Life

Life is like a fairy tale
Just hold onto its sail
Steer your life as a ship
Adoring the artistic trip

Never be rattled
By the storm
Face the battle
And you will transform

Flaunt your smile
As you walk the aisle
Hearts are won
In barely a defile

 

आंखों की नमी और माथे की सलवटें,

आईना है तेरी शख्सियत का,पैमाना है तेरी काबिलियत का।

(The moisture of your eyes and the crease on your forehead is

the mirror of your personality and the measure of your skills.)

Vulnerability

Vulnerability can be one’s strength. It reflects the capability of being wounded or hurt but you also gain strength by enduring sufficient pain and when its full to the brim, you decide enough is enough. Ability is embedded in the word vulner’ability’, so basically it is your ability to deal with the hardship in your own unique way.

The origin of vulnerability and vulnerary comes from the same Latin word vulner-vulnus. Vulnerary is something which is used to heal wounds. So going by the origin, being vulnerable is the ‘ability’ to guard your fort against all evils and cure yourself from all the diseases that plague you.

So be vulnerable, be strong.

Regrets

What exactly is regret?  Have you ever pondered about a life without any regrets?

I believe having a desire for something and not getting it gives birth to regret. When we look in hindsight, we feel that we have made some mistakes in life that causes misery, but the fact is something different. The decision which we are calling as an act of foolishness was a well-calculated decision taken at that instance of time which later turned out to be unfavorable. With time everything changes and so does our decision making capability. We evolve with every second.

Imagine what our lives would have been if some of the events did not occur as it happened in the past. We would have been an entirely different entity. Regrets are part and parcel of our life. So stop cringing about it as it has moulded us to who we are today.

A Stupid Boy

Once upon a time
in his sublime
there lived a stupid boy
who lost all his joy.

Believed in magic
and trusted fairy tales,
stayed away from reality
hidden in misty veil.

A worthy noble soul
yet to find his goal;
kindness resides in the core
his intentions are always pure.

Fell in love
when not supposed to
trapped in distress
without any clue.

Oh boy! you’re too stupid,
you still believe in cupid..!!

Find your way out
from this love bout.
Mould your entity
without losing your identity.
