Emotional Emancipation!

Toxicity of relationships stifle me

tremors of raucous feelings erupt into an avalanche,

rustle the pages of thoughts,

scraping buried memories.

Torrents of unsaid words

trapped within the fortress of my heart flow.

Deluge of tears ink the blank paper

with whorls of pain.

Emotions that asphyxiated within

today,

taste freedom after a long battle of holding on!

L- Limitless Freedom!

A to Z Challenge 2022 – Nature and I

Don’t you think many of us restrict or limit our growth by boundaries we set for ourselves? Man is blessed with boundless potential. Yet the fear of failure, self-imposed barriers and doubts curtail his growth.  Snug and cozy in his self-created comfort zone, hesitation greets his step outside of it. The mind holds on to the “what ifs” before giving it a try.

When I see the birds fly across the blue skies, it reinforces my belief that that we too are blessed with abilities in abundance. When the fledglings are ready, the mother pushes them out of their nest. The little ones instinctively flap their wings and fly into the sky, overcoming fear, slowly but steadily gaining confidence, before soaring into the vast open sky.

“There is freedom waiting for you on the breeze of the sky, and you ask, “What if I fall? Oh, but my darling, what if you fly?” Erin Hanson

 The flying birds are a good reminder for me to let go my apprehensions and dare myself to take my feet off the ground.

“The reason birds can fly and we can’t, is simply that they have perfect faith, for to have faith is to have wings.” J. M. Barrie

the flight to freedom

 All I need to do is, shrug off the self-doubts infringing into my mind. Soaring into the limitless expanse is a dream which I can realize, if I believe in it.

Like Rumi rightly said, “You were born with wings, why prefer to crawl through?”

She,

voices her opinion loud, against her dwarfed rights

  turns deaf to societal charades, with a whispered sigh

 gives wings to her crumpled dreams, to reach the pinnacle

fights a daily battle against unseen and unsaid rules

frees her imprisoned longings, with her head held high

 adorns a resilient avatar, with her tenacious spirit

proudly wears her tiara, despite the many scars.

Her life is a collage of challenges, a different set each time.

She expertly sews the many patches of her life

into a beautiful quilt, 

signed with the motifs of her victories!

All she only wants is,

freedom to celebrate herself, to be who she is!!

Happy Women’s Day to all the amazing women here!

Free!

Hooked to phone – free time vanishes!

Breakup did not free the memories.

Divorce, freed her from abusive relationship.

Her free verses captured many hearts.

Tiny joys of life – Absolutely free!

Break free, from stereotype societal molds.

Free of thoughts, she experienced bliss.

Makeover!

The lock down cleanses the landscape

stay away humans balm the earth,

liberate it from their vile deeds,

as it breathes and rejuvenates

to a complete makeover.

Empyrean blues smile across the horizon

cumulus clouds indulge in careless whispers

the zephyr flirts with the virgin blooms

sounds of chirps serenade the world

sparkling brooks mirror a pristine image

boughs dance in gay abandon

the nadir glows a radiant gold, before

the night sky flaunts a starry spectacle

flora and fauna revel in its new found freedom

nature’s beatitude delights hearts!

Differentiating between

religion, caste and colour

obliterating lessons of humanity

creating islands for himself

by the boundaries of

trivial and mindless demarcations,

drawn by the imbecilic humans,

lost in the wave of animosity

drowning love in its intensity!

But ,

I hope, our soul awakens

from the ignorant slumber

to ignite a fine ray of hope

to end this apathy

and redefine the ambit

to include brotherhood

and to leave a legacy

of a country endowed

with life without territories!

 

 

Dreams to be fulfilled…..

 

 

Culture2

An onset of a tempest brews within, when people put on a veil of ignorance,

when unruly waves of indifference drowns many in its flow,

when plunderers in the guise of rulers silently kill,

we lament the gradual death of the soul.

 

Oh ! Did your freedom go in vain, in the eons of time?

The martyrs who valiantly chose to rest on your earthy bosom,

whose widows swallowed silent tears,

when the infinite sea of fighters united

to drape you in the tranquil costume of freedom.

 

Not all is lost, dear Mother

a glimmer of hope quells the darkness,

when selfless crusaders stride on a march

chanting slogans of equality for all

with a dream to see you, O Mother!

In your natural splendour,

where the belly’s don’t feel the hunger,

children tread on a path of knowledge,

a women is not robbed of her dignity,

where  home is not a privilege of a few,

where the only religion followed is that of

humanity and brotherhood

where love and peace dwell for eternity.

 

Let’s join hands together to realise this dream

to make our motherland proud of all her children.

You let go the trigger of your words,

hitting bulls eye, it shredded my soul.

battered and betrayed

the hurt , buried deep in my heart.

for long, it lay captive in the confines

waging a lonely battle with raging emotions and angst.

rising  from the depths of anguish

it, finally  found  freedom!
