The Cocoon

The cocoon she had formed over time had cracked open. She was aware but consciously ignorant about it. A strange mix of discomfort and anxiousness was forming a deadly potion on her mind. Her sane being wanted to restrict exposure to the wild world, but the devil inside wanted to explore the uncertainties.

She floated in a sea of ecstasy as the first ray of externalities braced her soul. It felt exquisite, different and refreshing, from an otherwise mundane life. For once she wished to use all her might to leap forward, breakaway and free her soul. The new world was waiting with open arms, but will she succeed in breaking free from her cocoon? Only time would tell

Beyond Reach

The universe was within her
The morphing moon,
The endless galaxies,
The astral brightness,
She consumed them all.

She was a force,
A rebel without remorse,
She lived per her terms,
Rules were never her concern.

She danced to her tunes,
She was a God’s blessings, a boon,
A deviant force
Like some mysterious rune.

No boundaries could confine her,
Limitations couldn’t deter her,
neither could hold her to any decree
And she soared achieving the impossible,
Abolishing all creeds.

Fire,
The wind,
The water,
The elements,
She had all,
The universe was within her so was the world.

Never Give up

The roads may not exist,
The paths might not have been traversed before,
The reality may rattle your being,
The future might put you in an abyss with no scent of spoor.

It doesn’t matter how you feel,
It doesn’t matter where you land,
All that counts is your grit to go beyond.

Beyond your trepidations,
Beyond your fears,
Beyond those inhabitations,
Beyond any queries.

For you have one life and many hopes,
All beaconing your name only if you can hear.
