Life as a Game...

Like in the game of Snakes and Ladders,
Sometimes we rise up and sometimes we fall,
Sometimes it's hard, but we can always stand tall...
Or like in the game of Chess,
Sometimes we move forward and sometimes we fumble,
But if we play smart, we will never stumble...

Like in the game of Cricket,
Sometimes it's easy and sometimes we are made to sweat,
but till the last ball is bowled, why should we fret?
Or like in the game of Soccer,
Sometimes we may be challenged and sometimes we may as well falter,
But if we play fair and with fervour, the situation we can surely alter...

Like any other game, in LIFE as well,
Sometimes we will lose and sometimes we will win,
Sometimes we will earn fame and sometimes not even a pin :-D
Sometimes it's like a riddle.... there will be twists and turns,
Taking Life as a game, we need to play it bearing a grin,
If we lose..., Picking up the pieces, we can always re-begin :-)

Solace in Redemption...

Talking to myself until I respond back,
the very soul that had seemed to have ebbed away...
Coming out of the dark haze,
I no more recede from the shore,
I no more succumb to others' influences,
I no more give in to others' wishes & persuasions,
I am no more trapped in any frozen prism,
I have now learnt my lessons,
I no more allow anyone use me,
I am no more chained emotionally, ... can no more be...
I am no more locked, I hold my key,
... and I respond back, to me.

While I open my eyes to a brand new beginning,
I am no more lost... I am found.

A Surreally blissed Saturday Night...

Everyone searches for sanctity in their own sources of comfort .. and I have found mine :)
Logging off my internet connection and switching off my lappy, as I lie here on this cot, on the terrace, in this beautiful night... I see this beautiful moon up there.. among thousands of stars. So far away, yet seeming so close. Creamy and white, so pure and innocent, so elegant, always glowing with life, shining ever so bright, all through the darkness, all through the night. Looking like a beautiful bride. Surely a sight of comfort. Like an inspiration, a cleanser of one's mind. Majestic. Truly a masterpiece of God.
I wonder how does the Moon do it all night, shining alone, with just the stars and the dark clouds as companions, in a black sky and never a complaint in heart?

I am about to ask the moon "Why are you smiling?"
As I keep on staring closely at it, I feel like the moon is saying something to me...
and as I try to listen intently, I hear her saying "Keep on shining..."

O Ice-cream ... Yum Yum Yum

I mayn't remember when the first time we kissed,
but your taste, so divine, since then has always made me feel blissed...
Icy and chilled, you are always sweeter than anything,
Calming my burns, allaying my pains inside and soothing...

One scoop of you into my mouth, and you melt,
Such instant gratification, I could have never felt...
As you glide down, teasing my tongue and throat,
small chunks of cashew and almonds, as if they float...

The rich, creamy feeling in my mouth that you create,
And when it's the chocolate flavour, I just can't wait...
Calories or Tonsillitis or Tooth-decay... why would I care?
When Mummy isn't around here, I can always indulge and dare ;-P

The Strength of My Weakness : Affection

I am smiling once again... though I amn't able to feel being fully happy,
I am placid once again... though a numbing emptiness consumes my whole being sometimes,
I have buried and entombed my pain deep inside... though the numbing thoughts resurface sometimes to leave my mind perturbed,
I am singing once again... though a wailing silence engulfs and chokes my voice sometimes,
I have resurrected my heart now... though it feels something is still dying inside,

but reassembling myself brick by brick, I am recreating my world now...
and this couldn't have been possible without the tender, doting affection of you all my loved ones... the souls who truly care for me.

Like a pinpoint of light growing towards me, you all pulled me out from the darkness and into the light... helping me to see the way through the maze of pain...
and now I understand the reason for the human need for love, affection and companionship.

I thank all of you for grabbing my hand, before I fell too far too deep to ever resurface again...
I thank all of you for helping me believe that Flowers bloom as winter comes to pass...
I thank all of you for helping me sow fresh dreams once again...
I thank all of you for your affection when I really needed it the most...

Moving on...

Some dates sometimes might make one feel like they are etched on memory... as if impossible to forget ... last year's 9th of July ~ the longest night of my life or 22nd of March or 18th of April ~ the day I entered community and my life was turned upside down from thereon.... but the priorities in life should be rightly placed. And I have now realised and have correctly chosen mine.
It's not easy to hide behind a laugh and act strong, to shut the doors on the memories that keep coming back, It's not easy not to think about the broken remnants...
but the past is never going to take me anywhere... and one day I will surely understand that whatever happened, happened for my good... time will surely make me realise that. Till then I just need to keep going on without looking back ever again.
"Leave them all behind... Learn to move on...", I keep reminding myself.
Some good memories we made, those that had made me really happy at those times.
But at the end of the day, I need to accept that God had never made you for me, He has chosen someone else for me whom He thinks better suited for me, than you would have been,and now I gleefully accept His plans.

I just need to have faith on Him and let Him unveil His choice at the appropriate time ...
Till then, I can happily go on and not stop, not look back but leap out into the abyssal plains out there in the world, waiting for me... with one hand in front and one hand behind...
Ages pass with movement.... I keep hoping so
and repeating to myself -- "Don't stress the could haves... b'coz if it should have, it would have. God can never be wrong." 

Happy Birthday anyway.. Live happily :-) as I continue flushing out the memories and moving on...

Falling in Luv again & again...

I guess I am suffering from 'abibliophobia' ~ the fear of running out of good reading material! :D
Especially when I have no book in stock that would keep me absorbed during weekends. So what do I do? Buy more books :D
Tearing the plastic cover, I just love the fresh scent of paper... that absolutely irresistible smell of a new book... the certain whiteness of the paper... warm and crisp..
Flipping and caressing the pages gently, as if I am running my fingers through my beloved's hair :D 
Holding the book with both hands, as if I have cupped my beloved's face and her cheeks with my hands and just about to embrace her into my arms...
and I am in love once again, lost in my romance with books :D

But if it had been just about the outer features of a new book, then it wouldn't have been called Love.. rather it would have been just an attraction! And I am in no way just merely attracted to the outer features of a new book... These outer features do attract me but what makes me fall in Love with a good book and return back to it again and again is it's inner matter.

But then again, just because I am falling in love with a new good book almost every week, I can't be named as a Casanova! :D Would I be? :P
There is no enjoyment like reading :)

My Family

Brought together by a common destiny & nourished by Love aplenty,
The people who always stay by my side, never making me feel empty...
With arms wide open, always to welcome me in,
A feeling of comfort, and making me grin...

With encouraging words, urging me whenever I am stalling,
and always there to catch me whenever I am falling...
Never losing faith, never giving up on me,
My Papa, my bhai and my dearest Mummy...
The people I always feel proud to belong
... always helping me, to stand up and to walk strong

My Resurrection...

There was a time when I felt I was stuck,
and the roads led to nowhere,
Dark and hazy... Clouds and shadows everywhere, seeming never to end
I wandered for far too long, not knowing what could lurk at the next bend!
Just wishing for that particular moment to come,
Longing to break free, to begin anew and start over wholesome...
A new Beginning....

And here I am... re-born again
I am new on the inside,
Outside will never change...
A stage of my life is over as I emerge from my cocoon,
My old life ended, and I will never go back there again...
I am a butterfly now & I know now how to fly,
Filled with luv for life & dreams of touching the sky...
This new beginning is the start,
To a better life... with a resurrected heart.

Happy Birthday to Me :-)

Good Morning, Bhagwanji... :-)

Good Morning, Bhagwanji... I am ready for today :-)
I am willing and listening to what You have to say...
My mind is clear now and gone is the fog,
My eyes are open and I dedicate to You today and everyday...
I have clothed myself in Your righteousness,
My heart on my sleeve and smile on my face....
I am taking in knowledge You have given to me,
and am bowing before You before starting this new day...
You are my charioteer, please guide me all my lifelong,
Keep me under your wings and Don't ever let me do anything wrong

Why dwell in the past?

U drown not by falling into a river, but by staying submerged in it ~ Paulo Coelho

It's time to pick myself up with renewed vigour.
No more of dwelling in the past, no more holding onto something that was never mine, no more looking back...
I need to fly once more and this too shall pass.....
I need to unfold my wings..slowly but steadily...
I need to feel all the colours of life,
I need to smell the fragrance of life,
I need to trust God and his predetermined provisions
I just need to spread my wings
....and I am ready for my flight....

My New Blog & My First Post

LIFE RETOUCHED...
Each day is the beginning of the rest of my life
So every day is a new day, a new beginning.... to make things better.. to make this life better...
to make each day better
I am reconfiguring, re-believing, re-feeling life...
Having thrown away my broken wings, my broken mind, my broken heart, I can now feel being free, regenerated...
