Inexorable

Not the gushing wind
with a roaring voice,

Nor the deluge
bringing the city to a standstill,

Neither the fright
that breach all barriers
scaring lives,

Nothing succeed to stop her,
for her grit is inexorable
and she fought valiantly
facing every battle gallantly
with an inexplicable smile

Regina

Not her simple drape
or her bare neck
nor the simple metal earrings
or the bare feet
upheld her to be called
the Regina of the estate

But those enigmatic eyes,
the vivid moments that stirred inside
and the benign smile
that left the universe agog
and her graceful poise
all beaconed and screamed
her to be the queen
and donning her simplicity
she ruled the world

Her Grit to Succeed

You know how the celestial bodies are, always there but beyond reach,
and those stars,
rhyming charmingly in some poetic muse,
yet those boundaries never breached

And have you seen the clouds,
all fluffy and white
mesmerizing from a distance
yet no one can have a share of its shroud

And those words,
that thrive in your mystic mind,
brandishing a fearless smile,
but never to be arrested in a cage

Your grit to succeed
has a shining armor as such
for no one can hold your thoughts
from soaring,
and raising above the far skies

Promontory Rock

She stood strong
like the promontory rock
jutting out from the rough sea
standing for time immoral
battering the gale, the storm
and the high tides
during the full moon nights

And during the sun-kissed days
it battled with no respite
while the waves slapped its face
it stood tall exuding divine grace
and with defiant hope
it waited for the day
when a wandering seagull
would rest its wings
on its knoll
after a long haul flight
and when with perched eyes
it would gaze the horizon
mapping the pathway
to resume the flight
before the fall of the night

Until then the cape would provide
the seagull comfort and love
before it would soar away
consumed by its wanderlust
with the hope that it would
one day come back to the promontory rock

Behind the Ostensible Shield

She lived her life in style,
every day a memory,
every occasion a moment of pride

She was a dream to aspire,
a hope of making the dead alive,
A desire to weave
a reason to nurture believe

That’s how she appeared to the world, beauty, perfection, astute, impeccable were the superlatives
she was known for

But people failed to see,
how she achieved
what the world now envied

For her grit to succeed,
the abrasion and the bleed,
the emotional turmoil,
and the times
when she broke down and coil,
all the harsh realities were never seen by those eyes,
as they thought she never had to try,
for she was born to touch the skies

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
