There will always be a time when things aren’t right
People don’t count on you
They think your time is over
or Maybe it’s not your thing
Amidst all this,
People stop expecting from you
People also call it the doom
But It should rather be called the NO BURDEN PHASE
Because people have no expectations from you
there’s no performance pressure
You can silently work and be the underdog
while others try to get rid of the burden of expectations (that’s on them now).
It’s your time to work harder and laze around
Think more, brainstorm and prepare yourself
to give your best shot at your opportunity, conquer it
and come again under people’s expectations
yet again to become a part of their scrutiny list
to step in the burden phase again
So somebody else could get a chance to be in the NO BURDEN PHASE.
The expectations seem very attractive at the start when it gets you all the attention
But with time it gets heavier, so
Do not let people’s expectations stop you
They are like fake friends, they come and go with good times
Don’t let them bother you
-It’s just a
Because if they won’t accept me…………
What if they won’t accept you?
You could do all that they please being paranoid by the fact that “what if they don’t like me!”,
but ever wondered
We are here for a very little time and tomorrow isn’t promised
We’ll soon be gone
and you can’t take these mistakes, embarrassments, with you
so let us fight our fear
this fear of not being accepted
And if you think you will look stupid and they would laugh
be happy about being somebody’s reason to laugh (life is about perspective)
Maybe you could laugh at yourself too
Mistakes that we make aren’t just lessons
They are the jokes (tragic ones though) still JOKES
You could either laugh on them with everyone else
Just crib over every other thing
You could cry and do every other thing they want and expect you to do and
make your life miserable
Just do what you want to do and don’t give a damn about “their” opinions
Because the importance of their opinions in your life is just as much as the importance of the GOOD MORNING forwards on family WhatsApp groups to you!!
So live free and let others think whatever they wish to
-Reject this visa
and make a new passport
Why do we need to respect women?
Housewives or the working ones?
Even if they work they do it for themselves so what is so great about it?
Why do they have special women’s day and week?
If there are any such questions in your mind, let me tell you that now
Women aren’t demanding anything special just some basic rights
Rights that include
The Right over her own body
The Right of having a consent
The Right of being free of public scrutiny for crimes she hasn’t committed
The Right of moving on from her past
The Right of keeping herself above anyone else
The Right for taking her own decisions
The Right to not carrying other people’s guilt
The Right of not having to always make tough choices
The Right to prove her worth after being born and not being sentenced to death in the womb
The Right of having their hard-work being paid in terms of productivity and not gender
The Right of
Is it too much to ask for?
We need to put a stop at such activities
We need to think of women as adult human beings capable of having the authority to take their decisions
We need to stop thinking that a married women loses her right of Saying No to sexual intercourse to her Husband
We need to stop assuming that if a women was raped it was her fault
We need to stop asking women to lower her voices in her life discussions
We need to stop blaming women for the misdeeds of her children
We need to stop
We need to start making letting them take control of their own lives
And then we might not need such days or weeks because they could have the 365 days of a year celebrating all that they want!
To the dear lady who is always portrayed to be the one sitting in front of a TV set and being jobless
I am sorry,
that people don’t respect what you do
that your kids ask you the question of what have you done?
That you aren’t their hero and they constantly compare you to their father
They fail to understand your resilience and call you weak
That it took years for people to realise that you are the house maker
That the only place they talk about you is tv series where they show you as a person whose only stress is the perfect pie you cook and the colour of the tablecloth
That even after knowing the kind of hard work you do, you are always portrayed as a lady with pitch-perfect makeup
let me tell you, that you are way more than what they show you to be
Don’t compare yourself to the working women who play your roles on tv, you don’t need to worry about sheets, laundry and your looks
There are always exceptions, aren’t there?
The ones who know your importance
The ones who treat you well
The ones who don’t expect you to be a superhuman
and the ones who accept you as who you are
And this women’s day Let’s not just talk about the women but also the men who understand women in the time of need
Who celebrate Women’s Day every day
– A party is nothing without the special ones
Played a video game before?
Former levels being Easy to engage you and the latter ones being tough,
but you are still stuck to it because we love challenges
So is life
it will get burdensome
but you will clear these levels
maybe not right now, after the break but that’s happening for sure
So do not think of quitting it
this game of life cannot be uninstalled
But can be triumphed
I am creek of words which leads to an ocean of emotions
Like water, I can flow through your heart and soul
Remember how you read me back then in school?
in your English classes to write exams
and now when the life examines you
Here you are searching for answers in me again!
I am not girlish (Is that what you think of me?)
I am a manifestation of love
but that’s not all
If only a novel is written on my story would people know
how I was lost in the heaps of heavy novels
but little would they know that I am a lot more than what they define me
a magician for those who believe in magic
a way of protest for a rebel
a song for the musician
a lullaby for a baby
a guide for the lost
a prayer for a devotee
a wave of feelings
the healing for a hurt
and a lot more!
I am a Poem

I post a poem from other writers on every MONDAY and FRIDAY
A letter to all the people I love,
FOREVER as they call it, I am sorry I won’t be able to promise you this
because I know it is a lie, it has always been and like every other lie, we don’t want to accept it, because this fear is a truth.
I fear to lose you just as much as you fear to lose me
and even if we control all the other storms of circumstances, TIME is something we will have no control over
So what will we do then?
Does this mean we stop loving?
Stop being attached?
Let us stop overthinking over this
Let us stop counting the number of days we have together
Let us stop promising forever and promise till the time we are together
I will love you,
be honest to you,
choose you over anyone else,
never leave your side,
Till the time we are together
and that’s a promise
Do we ever look at comedy movies and feel like being a part of it?
But we do wish to be a part of action and
drama movies because
we want to be a hero
we want to fight and conquer our problems
Life gives you problems to hero them
-You are the avenger of your life
Maybe its all a lie
We do not have a right to be happy
Everything that happens does not happen for good
We are made to suffer
Promises are meant to be broken
Hard-work does not always get success
Not everyone is meant to be happy
It could be the truth
Maybe whatever we have been doing all these years is a sin
But can you really live a life without these lies? (If they are lies)
Don’t these so-called lies build hope, happiness and love
They feel right and do not cause harm to anyone
So what’s the problem in believing in them
Maybe we might end up getting a punishment by a force of nature for all these lies
but that’s not promised either
So what’s the harm in taking a chance?
We’ ll all be dead soon (and that is promised)
So let’s not think of these possibilities and live our life freely
And choose to be happy and do things that make us feel right
-Not all Lies cause harm!
Do the memories from the past hurt you?
Do you still break thinking about those bad memories?
There are some memories from the past we don’t want to think about at all because those events from the past are the ones we have locked in the heart and wanting to forget them.
Memories from the past are like pictures
Just like the pictures of thorns cannot hurt you
why let the pictures of past affect you?
you know what is even scarier?
The thought of forgetting a beautiful memory that you wish to cherish forever
You don’t wish to put them in words much either because you are scared
What if I am unable to do it?
What if I am forgetting some pieces of it?
That’s something about memories they keep fading and one day they are gone forever
Memories fade but the lessons are ones we need to remember forever!
