Sleep Away My Son

images-1

By:- rANJEETA nATH gHAI

On the days when you don’t feel,
Like getting up,
On the days when you wish,
You could hide away under your pillow,
And block any glimpse of sunlight,
When the dreams paint the world around you,
Sleep away my son….

This is for you on the days,
When laziness feels right,
Let sleep overtake you,
Drowning all your stress,
Away from test, grades, marks and fear,
Crawl back and snuggle up in your quilt,
Sleep away my son….

Some days will test you to the point of exhaustion.
Some days will wear you down,
You may feel the whole world,
Pressing down on your shoulders,
Depriving you of strength,
Pushing down on your soul,
So sleep away my son….

Crawling out of bed maybe,
Your biggest accomplishment today.
And you know what?
Maybe that’s okay.
Life can sometimes be daunting,
So give me your soul touching smile,
And sleep away my son….

To Dig Up Knowledge, You Have To Dig Around

22585583f86f5757e6417c53c246e7f3

By:-rANJEETA nATH gHAI

Sweating students;
Anxious parents;
Invigilating  teachers.
Clinking of pencil boxes,
Scratching of quills,
Rustling of paper,
Mindless pouring out of knowledge.

***

Students write, scribble and scrawl,
In the solemn air of the exam hall; brain dead they are.
Diarrhea of all sorts spilling onto papers.
Doodling with numbers,
And complexities of their vocabulary.
Combating more and more of that useless knowledge,
We would probably never use.

***

Too many problems, yet very lil’ solutions
It’s like stepping into a field of mines.
Suffocated; imprisoned by the tension,
Paperworks and all the lessons.
Tests doesn’t teach us how to be a good person.
How to survive on our own; or cope with beasty bullies..
Brainpower cannot be measured by grades or exam performance.

***

Delicacy. Perception. Precision.
Clarity of insight,
Being a good judge of character.
Exhibiting an understanding beyond thought,
Having an aptitude with words; empathy to emotions.
Knowing how to comfort, to console.
Signify the intricate beauty of the mind.

….intelligence is sensitive, having certain elegance.
It’s knowing, but not saying.

A Facade of Laughing Bonhomie

e46b8798589b46b04b914c8b1f37f717

By:- rANJEETA nATH gHAI

Behind her facade,
Is a sorrow with reason.
A girl who was filled with,
Insecurities, and sadness.
Emotions; locked and imprisoned,
Like a tiny white-winged dove.

*

Behind her facade,
I know a different person.
Who lives in a hope with dying light,
Looking happy and carefree.
Hiding a boiling, raging love,
Longing to be free.

*

Behind her facade,
Is a well filled deep with tears,
Home to her deepest darkest fears.
And I wish I could spill the sadness,
That threatens to destroy her,
Like storm waters sinks a ship.

*

Behind her facade,
She would always smile.
She would always laugh.
But her eyes void of life,
Voice void of emotions.
And I’m afraid they’ll buy the facade and she’ll drown.

*

Oh Mauli…!!
Don’t you know that you’re too convincing.
It’s time to remove the mask,
You’ve worn all your life.
Let your true self show.
Let the world peep in through the windows of your soul.

…..because all is not bleak.
All is not lost.

कुछ बिखरे पल 

images-1

रंजीता नाथ घई

मुट्ठी भर राख और
कुछ बिखरी यादें रह जाती हैं
जो रह रह कर हमें आंसुओं में भिगो जाती हैं|

कागज़ की कश्ती, रेत के घरोंदे
बनाते बचपन बीता, बस यादों में
सिमट के रह गए मेरा बचपन के अफसाने|

हर बीता लम्हा
कभी ख़ुशी, कभी गम
तो कभी नासूर बन जाता है|

दिल डरने लगा है अब
यादों की आहट से, बस याद उनकी आती है,
और रुलाती चली जाती है|

वादा निभाना हमारी आदत, और, 
हमें भूलना उनकी आदत सी हो गई है 
तक़दीर भी अपना खेल दिखाती चली जा रही है|
