Their parting was no less than a cataclysm. For there was no bloodshed but the roar of the silent howling was worse than any massacre.

My Will To Bounce Back

You can take my wealth,
my proud belongings,
and every one of my worldly possession.

You can attempt to take away my pride,
The earthly bindings,
And snap me away from my social tribe.

But what you can
Never deprive me of,
Is the hope to resurrect,
And my will to bounce back.

Igniting Hope

She had talent of many kind,
But was stuck in life’s daily grind,
She had beautiful wings,
But it was entwined in her fate’s string,
And though her spirit was alive and free,
Yet she was confined in her postponement spree.

Until the day when he came to her life,
He showed her the world beyond the rife,
He nurtured her flairs,
Smoothen the wings,
He elevated her spirits,
With urge to break the mold,
More stronger within.

And she flew,
with arms stretched,
And with twinkled eyes,
Taking her maiden flight,
High up in the skies.

Let Hope Be Your Guiding Light

Hope is an amazing tool when put to use. Analyze this – if you are unfortunate enough to fall from a plane. You can either surrender and accept the fast approaching death or can take a diving position, thinking 3/4 of this world is covered with water and you will swim to survive.

Let the hope be your guiding light as you begin your 2018. Have a wonderful new year.
