Briers on your Path

Briers in the journey of life
will engulf you
piercing your skin
making your heart bleed

and your innocuous soul
often after facing the thorns,
will dread to walk the path again,
impeded by rising doubts,
and scared from getting hurt,

but when did the path to anything beautiful
travels through a rosy road

Nurturing Relationships

In my opinion, the most complicated thing to comprehend is human relationships. And it is rightfully so, for relationship is an amalgamation of diverse attributes like emotions, resilience, aspiration, freedom, and security. The human mind is a rational grouse, worse, it never forgets and files memories, both good and bad, with equal fervor.

The bonding in a relationship never happens in a trice nor does the bitterness erupts with a sudden burst.  It dwells within us over time. So, when a bond between two human beings deteriorates it is never a sudden expression, but a synthesis of overlooked emotions stashed over a period of time. The same is true when individuals’ bonds for a lifetime, for in such cases there exists empathy, respect, and enough space for each person to grow and flourish.

So, I tell you this, if you truly want to nurture a relationship, never ignore the subtle hints thrown at you from time to time. See if you can pick the signal from the noise. If you think you are treated unfairly, speak your mind, express your thoughts, be compassionate, and at times learn to forgive.

Remember, in a relationship the biggest deterrent is silence. And despite the efforts, if things aren’t working seek help. Often seen as a taboo but consulting a professional often does wonder.

A Relentless Pursuit

A firm determination to beat any odds,
display of courage in every lunging stride,
and hope for a better tomorrow in the twinkle of your eyes,
can dissolve any mounting fear
can clear any obnoxious mind

What is Greatness

Greatness is not the good deeds you do and smear on the map for everyone to admire your generosity, greatness is when you do an act of kindness without any expectations or  bellowing your name with a loud reprise

Harnessing Positivity

Have you ever been caught in traffic only to realize you were trapped in the jam not because of some morning rush, or odd hour construction work or for an accident, but because a bunch of inquisitive drivers decided to slow down so that they can have a good preview of an incident that happened on the opposite side of the lane? When you reach the spot, you give a good peek and then become frustrated, cursing how people have lost their senses, never acknowledging that you subconsciously did the same when the occasions presented itself. But isn’t it a common episode in our lives? We are always curious to find out about things that hardly concerns us. And despite the fact that we may not be able to offer any help, we still crane our necks to get a glimpse of the scene.

Some of us do demonstrate the same behavior in our daily lives too. Anything related to others interests them. Querying about other endeavors, gossiping, weighing into other decisions, judging people, and spreading half-known facts to the community at large. We may not realize, but such behavior does more harm to ourselves than others. Like how the cars slowed down in a traffic jam, we throttle our own progress wasting energy and time discussing others. More we indulge in such behavior more we defocus from what is important often resulting in mediocre outcomes.

So, I will tell you this. The secret to happiness is taking interest in one’s own life and let gossip be a charm for the ostensible minds. I know it is easier said than done and our long-nurtured habits are so hard to shun off, but it can be easily done by harnessing a positive attitude. To remain positive is a skill one can acquire. Like how a craftsman chisel stone over time to create a masterpiece, you can do the same with your habits. While it is a skill to be learned over a lifetime, by taking small steps you can excel it over time.

What Worries me the most…

Not the monstrous night with specter lurking in the dark,
nor the ghoulish thoughts that often clouds my mind,
what worries me most is the demon inside
that I have nourished over time

I am a fighter

There are moments
when I believe
I will battle the storm
and put a defiant face
to defeat all the miscreant thoughts

and I fight with valiance
keeping the guard rails on
protecting the vulnerable heart
but then there is that one moment of weakness
that dissolve all the pretentious walls and I am left naked and exposed

And though battered and marred
I don’t give up
and I rise again to nurture my beliefs
and rekindle my trust,
for I am a fighter

Everything lies within

When the world closes on you,
when your own thoughts rattle your beliefs,
when your visage displays a pensive smile,
at that moment don’t go nowhere
but look inside your soul
for answers to all confusion lies within

If we can tame…

If we can tame the monster within us,
that invisible fear that blinds our faith,
and the vicious thoughts that rattle our peace,
the world will be such a better place
