You want to play with me Dear
Then you may hurt yourself in fear
You desire to mimic my tune & rhythm
It is a dangerous play but removes phantom
You wish to use my warmth when cold
It teaches courage and to be bold.
You hope to live and nurture in my space
Then you will learn to embrace me with grace
You dream to be fierce like me in all wars
Then follow your passions & reach the stars
As I’m the indomitable spirit in this universe
Learn to encompass this wisdom in all your verse.
Everything that begins has to end one day
Let this day be rejoiced as a day of rebirth of a ray
A ray that is as virtuous as fire & as pure as a dove
The phoenix shall rise from its own ashes to sow
The imprints & the beauty of this insight forever
In humanity, so that it never wavers again ever.
Who am I?
When there is no peace in surrounding
When the heart is racing and pounding
When the feet are tight in bonding
Will I seek you for strength and rebounding
When words hurt my inner peace
When emotions leave me at unease
When thoughts are as stiff as chalk and cheese
Will I seek you as a source of Peace
When Time seems to go against
When Fate seems to play foist
When Luck is as sour as Yeast
Will I seek you as a ray from the East
I am a human struggling with choice
I am a form waiting for some great voice
I am a seeker searching for an unknown Source
Who am I seeking is unknown of course
You are an ultimate Choice
You are the Final Voice
You are the Only Source
You are my conscience course
You are the one who advises to be right and good
You are the one who waits to be felt and understood
You are the Strongest Source in this World
You are the Eternity Power my dear Lord.
But why don’t I seek you in pain
Why do I take your name in vain
Why can’t I see in sunshine and rain
Why will I muddle you in my Brain
Let me know you as a Painter
Let me appreciate you as a Creator
Let me know you are the ultimate Writer
You are the one who acts as Sculptor.
I’m the flowing water that loves its own serenity
Of moving across plains, plateaus, hills in eternity
I’m the fluttering butterfly that adds colours
It helps in regeneration across the flowers
I’m the breeze that touches across lows & highs
It shall reach heart’s deepest core without any vies
I’m the blue sky that aspires to reach for stars
Adds amazement alike during bright & dark hours
I’m the burning fire that is always fighting away fear
To embark on a new journey with the near & dear
I’m a union of all these elements by divine miracle & grace
Yet question my existence in idiocy amidst this worldly race
A question that haunts me all day and night
Did I come to become a participant of a race or fight?
The answer is never affirmative, yet my restless mind
Is so used to this old patterns; but it shall one day find
A new dawn where all the questions ceases to exist
As my breath discoveres its purpose for this visit
Let this new dawn be showered on all those who wander
In search of clarity & light; & bestow with divine surrender
Let my existence be never questioned on any day
I shall move with the five elements just like a ray!

She travelled an extra mile
To get back long lost smile
Took a deep breath for a while
To let go of any kind of vile
She just saw river water flow
The speed of her steps is slow
To remove all the buried hollow
To rise to new vision from low
She could feel the warm breeze
It gently removed all crease
She felt anew, calm & peace
It’s fresh, an effect of confusion cease
An orb guided her to a place
The stride there is sans race
Her inner beauty increased the pace
It gently lit brightly all the days
All the days of her life are now
Full of surprises, newness as she bow
To the divine call & unconditional Love
Her heart & actions are as pure as a dove
Everyone is given a chance to choose
This is the time to be diligent & muse
Life is not meant to be an unworthy ruse
It’s meant to add meaningful colour to the view
When the choices are made in true spirit
It shall be followed by myriad merit
The path for co-passengers is also lit
It is a decision of the heart & not wit.

Travelled down the steep memory lane
The track seemed at times grand yet lame
At other times it was mysteriously insane
Filled with glittering memories that never wane
The passage though quite old, at times
Seemed quite new, with fresh chimes
New messages & voices just like hymns
Are flowing that are like the new rhymes
Learnt from old faults & felt remorse
Learnt to bury the old fury for a new course
It is time to bury all of it to open new doors
It is that hour of the day to re-begin with new source
With this acceptance moved towards the aisle
The brain was racing as if filled with puzzle
But the heart is slowly recovering from the hustle
To open a new door keeping away all past tussle
The new door is attractive & appeared bright
Touched the knob & opened heart to a new sight
It’s filled with illumination from an unknown light
All the past pain & pleasure is worth the wait!

An alien with beautiful eyes and a smile full of grace encountered a human who seems to be engrossed about something. Their conversation is as below:
Alien: What is that you are thinking about?
Human: You must not have noticed, this world is full of issues, concerns. I have so many duties & responsibilities. It’s not that I’m not happy but there is a constant struggle to prove
Alien: To whom & what do you prove?
Human: We need to fight for our existence & prove that we are worthy for our work & literally everything- it’s called competition.
Alien: Survival of the fittest, is it?
Alien: It is an animal instinct. I thought humans are above these animal instincts. When you are blessed with bountiful of resources on this Mother Earth why do you still struggle?
Human: Because we all fight for the same pie. We struggle to prove our existence. But yes, sadly there are few of us who struggle to meet ends.
Alien: You appear to be a bit contradictory- when you know you are fighting for the same pie, why don’t you just move ahead?
Human: Alas, wish I knew what for I’m here, I would go after my pie.
Alien: Do you think you are sent on Earth to run after pies, collect souvenirs?
Human: What else should I do, I’m just bored. I should keep doing something to occupy myself and tell people around.
Alien: Do you live life for yourself or to prove to people around?
Human: Frankly speaking, to a great extent for the sake of people around me- responsibilities.
Alien: Working for the sake of others is indeed a great quality- then you should be always happy. But why is it not happening?
Human: Let me ponder……..May be because I don’t do it with my heart.
Alien: Any specific reason?
Human: May be because I’m scared to discover the ‘real me’. May be I’m just blaming the people around me- calling it responsibility & shunning my true nature.
Alien: What is your real nature?
Human: Being a human.
Alien: What is it being like a human?
Human: Humanity is a blessing. It gives one the brain to think, body to turn your thoughts into actions & a heart that can carry memories. A heart that can feel & bleed also- A soul that can imprint & touch upon many other souls-make a difference
Alien: Are you living this blessing?
Human: Not fully. But I shall from now. By the way who are you?
Alien: Can you answer this question for yourself?
Human: Until few moments back- no. But yes, now I can. I’m a Human
Alien: You are a Human blessed to experience life in each breath on this beautiful planet called Earth to carry your work wonderfully with Love.
Human: Nice definition…when you can define who I’m so well, I wish to listen to your words on who you are…
Alien: I’m an ‘Angel of Hope’, just like you are an ‘Angel on Earth.’
Human: Do you keep coming here?
Alien: I’m always with you; you just need to open your heart for my messages to flow. By the way, do no start defining ‘you’ again.
You are blessed with an existence to live & let live; not to prove your existence. Your existence is proved each moment you breathe in & breathe out. Craft your work with love not as a burden.
Human: “Live & let live- craft work with Love…”
The Angel of Hope vanished.
The human was left in a mesmerizing state, not sure if this strange meeting really did take place or has it happened inside the brain. No clue. But the message is simple & clear.

Searched for light in a dungeon
Startled by the presence of a scion.
My scion is not from nobility
Not born or brought up in aristocracy.
Has the qualities of a warrior
Decided to be always a Savior.
Followed instincts till the last breath
Left traces & marks after death.
These marks are my memories
These traces are my treasuries.
I’ve worn them as shining amulets
That makes me flow like rivulets.
I do not have a portrait of yours
To show to the world that clears
The myth that you are imaginary
You are a grand scion & a legendary
I’m an amateur who cannot paint your glory
Nor can I showcase or portray your story.
Yet, I know the truth that you are there
You could quench the thirst of my quest in this fair.
Blessed is the soul who could accompany you
As in your presence everything presents in a new view
On one fine day this numbness turns to sensations
The mystery shall be beyond any language’s depictions.
Till that moment carefully wrapped in the deepest
Of my memories, you shall stay in my heart’s divine closet.
Hope is the light that can be lit even in a dark alley
Faith is the bird that can sing even in melancholy.
Let us light the candle of hope in our heart
Let the bird of faith sing to re-create our art.
Let us take a step forward & rise after calamity
To learn & breathe in fresh essence to humanity.
Let us pledge to carry forward the torch of light
Let this sojourn be filled with pride and no fight.
Let the bird sing the unsung song of our soul till the destiny
Let the light enlighten us to spread this message till infinity…
A dream like view in the eyes
Looking above at the skies
Glowing & enchantingly nice
An expression that can stab vice.
A thought provoking gait
Unique combination of mercy & might
Self absorbed at any new sight
A presence blessed after a long wait.
A smile that can rob away all pain
It can cure even the stab or slain
A memory that can never ever wane
A treasure of hope that makes one sane.
A portrayal that reminds one’s purpose
A tale that reminds there’s nothing to lose
The human birth is for a noble cause
Each moment is the result of what we chose…
