Let Your Heart Beat Again!

Sudden and Instant,

A calamity, rocked her world.

 

What a tragedy!

 

Her small little world crashed,

Shattering her heart into millions.

 

A dark cloud hovered over her.

 

For months, she passed the days with a smile,

Keeping herself together.

 

Afraid to fall, she stood strong for far too long.

 

Down she went, almost giving up,

But the light caught her eye.

 

Wrapping her up in its vivid flash,

 

It touched her soul, mend her heart,

Gluing the pieces back to where they should be.

 

A day like this, she never imagined,

 

When she will stand taller and stronger,

When she will re-open her life book,

 

Her journey wasn’t over, she had more to go on.

 

The darkness, was washed away by the light.

Now she sees, and she sees clearly.

 

She has a destination to reach.

 

The path is gonna be tough and bumpy

It is not going to be easy

 

But with the light inside her, she is a whole new her

 

This time, she is not quiting.

This time, she is gonna make it.

 

With the light inside her, she is gonna make it.

She is gonna make it and so can you! 

Let your heart beat again!

Finding Peace on a Rainy Day

Closing her eyes,

She raised her head,

Into the wind,

And felt it flit across her face.

 

Reaching her soul,

It made her forget,

All the worries, that were bringing her distress.

 

A little drizzling joined the breeze,

Falling on her face, and bringing out the smile,

Enabling her to feel the peace.

 

Inside and out,

She felt it all.

Inside and out,

She felt free.

I was trying to write something where I can show you and can make you feel about the weather and how it affected me rather than just state about it.

This is my first shot at this. Do tell me how did I do.

Are you feeling it? :/

Shattered Pieces

There are days when

She herself is shattered into million pieces

But if she gets the chance to tape someone’s pieces together

She takes it

 

When they walk away, happy

A smile appears on her face

Only to be washed away by the thought

Will there be someone for her

Someone who can take time to patch her up

 

Looking at her shattered pieces

And the high walls, she screens herself with

She laughs a little

Her door opens to all

But she ain’t gonna step in just about any body’s house

 

Afraid to put herself out in the world

She keeps her shattered pieces to herself

You can tell, she ain’t feeling ‘on the top of the world’

But her lips her sealed…

…..

Still Your Baby Girl…

She is big and strong

You raised her well

But hey mom and dad

Don’t leave just yet

 

She is still your baby girl

 

She still gets scared

She still cries under her pillow

She still needs you 

She still wants you

 

She is still your baby girl

 

Her fears have grown from a boogeyman to real challenges

Her smile may not always be real

She might not say much about it

 

But she is still your baby girl

Oh, dear parents

Do not leave

Not quite yet…

Create Your Own Fairy-tale

They say the world is a place without magic,

What if they are wrong?

They say there are no happy endings,

What if they are mistaken?

*

You!

Yes you.

You hold the key to your very own fairy tale.

*

Be kind and gentle like Snow White.

Be free-spirited and tough like Merida.

Be optimistic and graceful like Cinderella.

Be noble and strong like Mulan.

Be lovely and selfless like Belle.

Be faithful and adventurous like Pocahontas.

Be lively and clumsy like Anna.

Be elegant and brave like Elsa.

Be cute and rebellious like Ariel.

Be determined and unique like Tiana.

Be charismatic and innocent like Rapunzel.

*

Be your own fairy godmother,

Be your own prince charming,

*

Don’t be afraid to fall,

Just stand up and smile.

Because you hold the magic,

You hold the key to your happy ending.

I think this is the best poem I am written in a while.

It conveys a good message.

What you think?

Do comment, if you think it’s worth it and if it is not, do leave your suggestions. I will appreciate them.

Thank You.

In this Big Big World

A lot of people gonna hurt you

In this big big world

 

But you gotta stand up

Because you are stronger

Than what this cruel cruel world has to offer

 

Remember this, my friend

These back-stabbers, these gossipers, these leeches

Are not worth your attention

 

Focus on something better

Like you

Like people to whom you mean so much

 

You will find numerous blood-suckers

In this bad bad world

 

Who will try to drain you

Of your sweet sweet smile

 

But I am telling you my friend

Stand your ground

Keep your smile

 

Only then you can handle anything

This big big world throws at you.

To every person out there. ❤

 

Just say to Yourself that You are Happier than Many…

Sometimes in life you feel so blue,

But someone somewhere is not as happy as you.

Far at the border when a soldier sleeps,

Missing his loved ones he silently weeps.

Somewhere a mother painfully signs,

Because her new born baby didn’t open the eyes.

When reason to smile you may not have any,

Just say to yourself that you are happier than many.

A DAY IN THE LIFE OF LAURA AND JOHN

Laura woke up to the sound of her alarm. She got out of the bed and checked on her baby in the cradle, sleeping like an angel. She kissed him on his forehead and said in a cheerful voice, “Happy birthday, my dear.”

Then she turned to her husband, still sleeping. She shook him hard to get him out of his deep sleep. Her husband (John), was still rubbing his eyes when Laura made her way downstairs.

After wash up, John joined his wife in the kitchen. She had a lot of ingredients on the shelf.

“What is all this?” John asked.

“Don’t tell me you forgot! Today is our Gabe’s first birthday.”

“Oh, of course I remembered. What I meant was what are you making?”

“Yeah, right.” Laura smiled and rolled her eyes.

“OK, here’s your breakfast. Eat it and then please bring all the things I have written down.”

“And don’t forget the sugar. I have to make a cake.”

Finishing his food, John got up, changed, said goodbye to his wife and made for the door.

“Goodbye honey. Don’t be late!!” Laura called.

But as John got out, he saw his neighbor.

“Hey, Zack, how is life coming around?”

They chattered for a while before heading their own ways. As John walked down the street, he met a stranger.

“Can you guide me to Downing Street’s press office?” 

“Sure.”

After sending the stranger in the direction of his destination, John continued down the street and reached the supermarket.

There he realized, he had lost the list somewhere, but as he had gone through it once, he thought he would be able to buy all the stuff. After a while, when he thought he had bought all the stuff, he made the payment.

“I think I am forgetting something.” John tried to remember but nothing came to his mind.

“I think that’s all.” And started back for home.

On the way, he stopped to buy a newspaper. Finally when he got home, he realized how late he was. Because on the sound of his arrival, Laura came out of the kitchen and was now standing in the doorway with an annoyed look on her face.

“I brought all the stuff.” John smiled and tried to cool down the tension between them. But it was obvious from her expression that she was in no mood to smile. She snatched the shopping bag from John’s hand and went back to the kitchen. John followed her to the kitchen; she was taking out the stuff. Suddenly, she stopped short and murmured something.

“What you said?” John didn’t quite get her.

“Where’s the sugar?”

“That must be it! I thought I was forgetting something.” exclaimed John, snapping his fingers.

“You forgot the sugar…..” It was more of a statement than a question.

Laura’s face clouded over. “I told you don’t be late but here you are. Late! Fine I will get over it but you forgot the sugar! I told you, I have to make a cake!”

Laura sank to the chair. John tried to seek her forgiveness. “I lost the list somewhere. I thought I have brought everything…….”

Laura was close to tears. “Now what are we going to do? What’s a birthday party without a cake?”

“Gabe doesn’t know that. He is just a baby. Make something else. The guest will eat anything.”

Laura looked at him with a bored expression. Shaking her head she got up.

“I guess I will just have to make something else.”

“That’s my girl. See there’s always a solution for everything!”

With her back to him, Laura said in a tight voice:

“Don’t think you are getting out of it, this easily. We don’t have much time. Go change and dress up Gabe as well.”

“Diapers too?” John asked in a troubled voice.

“Yes, diapers too.”

As John turned to go, Laura teased him, “And try to enjoy what you are going to do.” She turned to face him. She was trying hard to keep a straight face and John caught the look. He smiled and said, “I know. I know. I deserve it.”

The party went well. After seeing off their guests, they changed for bed. As Laura was changing Gabe she said, “Not bad for a first time. You did a pretty good job, changing his diaper.”

She looked at John with a smile on her face and a twinkle in her eyes. Then they both shared a good laugh.

THE END

*******************

The story behind this story:  I was in the first year of my bachelors, when we were given a task. The task was to write a story based on a number of pictures. We had the choice to determine the sequence of pictures and of course to construct a story as we like, including the characters and dialogues. And then we were suppose to act on it.

We did good in presenting this story. But I wasn’t expecting what came next. Our teacher liked it. He actually liked my written version! That made my day. Of course, there were few mistakes here and there. He guided me on those (thank you, sir!). And also added that he liked how I composed the story and that he enjoyed reading it.
