Rising Above All Odds

Ckonfab

Battling the darkness,
fighting the malign,
jostling adversity,
dodging cosmic signs.

Like a gladiator’s grit,
the moon repels and morphs.

Every shape being unique,
every shine to behold.

Not very different from you,
for your best comes to display when the stakes are against you.

Abstruse Soul

Everything she chose not to say,
yet whispered through her eyes,
and every time when she opts to stay quiet
while the world was in a prattle riot,
made her aberrant from the rest,
and she remained a defiant spirit
a desire from a different world

Everyone longed to be with her,
showing keen interest to discover her self,
instead, she discreetly decides to walk away
kindling her abstruse soul

She was Beautiful

She was beautiful,
not because she was the epitome of grace,
neither for the aura she displayed
when she walked on the pave,
nor for the gorgeous dresses
she meticulously drapes,
and not for wearing the perfect smile
hiding all the surging rile

She was beautiful,
for everything she didn’t
force to subscribe,
and for displaying
what her mind prescribed

Like the vernacular verse
she wore in her colloquial thoughts,
or singing out loud
without worrying about the crowd,
and for the endless emotions
she relentlessly showed,
like crying and smiling together
as her heart bestowed

And for the sand dunes, she built,
and for the dreams, she conceived,
and for not caring who was there to watch,
she was beautiful for who she was

She Contravened

Every occasion when the world pushed her
to follow the societal norms,
she contravened such thought

And doesn’t matter
how rough the gale was,
she remained floated
gracing an inspiring smile
like a bobbing buoy

The universe disowned her,
the world outcasted her being,
but no matter how tough
the circumstances were,
she didn’t deviate from her stanch

Slowly, with few steps at a time,
She surged ahead,
and she formed her own clan
defined by her terms

Her Blurred View

She thought he was gone,
dissolved in some blurry horizon,
never to return

She labeled it as fate,
accepted his absence
even before her eyes could blink,
and that heart
raised a slight shrug,
and she moved on with her life

She put layers after layers
of thoughts,
renewed love,
fleeting desires,
and charming promises,
all over her bruised heart,
and she assumed such diminutive hope
would be buried without much ado

But he was never gone,
for her mind got engaged in new covets, making him dissolve in oblivion,
but he stood there braiding time
waiting for the dust to settle,
patiently but surely

And then one fine day
when she was flipping through
her past yearn,
she saw him,
never disappearing,
questioning every one of her belief,
and each one of her credence,
and from there on
her life was never the same

Rekindle Hope

In the time of despair, we should never lose hope, for the hope will get us going and the faith will ensure the journey is worthwhile. So, let us rekindle the hope, rejoice the moments and make every effort count

Believe

Ckonfab

Give it in,
Let it go,
For this time believe what I show,
I am your shadow,
Not different from you,
Maybe few shades darker but I am the new you,
Untie that knot,
And believe in this thought,
Together we will create some stories untold.

Let us attain the uncharted paths,
and descry some unexplored roads,
Together let us pledge not to impede that
shining glow,
If you trust me, hold my hand,
In front of us, no gale can stand,
You connect in rarity with someone,
Don’t let it go in some doltish rationale,
Show that courage and take that plunge,
Behold the moment don’t let it expunge.
