Your Guidance

102_1784

I carry with me the rare gifts showered

Those which You’ve graciously bestowed

These are the light for me in dark moments

At times counted as my achievements

They are neither my accolades nor

Do they define who I am in any war

These are neither my life’s sole identity

Nor do they fill me with feelings of superiority

These gifts are the humbleness

You taught by depicting kindness

Being patient in times of hardships

Not being slave to any ploys or whips

Striking the chord at the right time

Embracing friends & foes with same rhyme

You’ve fulfilled your celestial role here

Left it to us to learn to love and care

Your presence on earth is a divine delight

It is an infinite & eternal spread of light

Your journey fills one heart with might

Each recounted event is a new height

When one is blessed with Your guidance

Each moment is filled with reverence

This is the greatest gift ever given

Blessed are the souls who’ve taken!

Winds

When stormy winds come to greet me

In the midst of my long & curvy path

Let me not forget that you are there to see

That I learn my lessons without any wrath

 

When dusty winds cross my day’s toil

In this journey of small steps to cover miles

Let me remember that there is no glory in foil

That which you taught with gentle smiles

 

When coarse winds cut across the reap

In this fertile land where I’ve sown my grains

Let me remind myself that it is no good to weep

That the heap shall accumulate later when it rains

 

When dry winds cut across my skin’s surface

In this new land of options & opportunities

Let me repeat that there are many faces in this race

That teaches the law of change & need for peace

 

When there is no more wind that I can feel some day

In this land which I thought was mine with pride

Let me revisit my efforts & memories in a way

That rejuvenates & adds essence to my soul’s stride…

A Dialogue or Monologue

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?

Human: Yes

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.

Unsung song of soul

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…

Serene Abode

Distant from the hustle and bustle

Quite far away from all sort of tussle

There is a serene and lovely place

Where there is no need to be in race

You are at liberty to express your views

Emote & share all mews and news

Free from all kinds of judgement

You are at liberty to experiment

There is no failure or success here

Everything is a lesson there

Every human enters as a student

With questions & who is prudent

There is no need to exit this abode

It is like a journey on a road

Where there is no beginning or end

Mesmerizing events on the road send

Great message across to the world

You are gifted a chance to mould

Both one’s own & others’ lives

One is filled with liveliness and dives

Deep into a world filled with light

You are now armour less knight

There is no need to grope in darkness

To arrive at this mystical brightness

This is your open heart & awakened soul

That can make everything feel whole.
