A Ray of Hope

A Ray of Hope Freed from the hell Called self-pity, There are lessons to be learnt. Lessons; that teaches To unbound from shackles of past And not to dwell on the negatives. Let the fires of self-worth crackle Released from purgatory. And in the end The embers left Shall tell …

Speak Softly For They Are Listening

Speak Softly For They Are Listening The butterflies have fled. Sparrows have flown away; Never to return. Living within the circle of smoke and fumes That hovers above. Arrogantly.

With tired legs, I began to reach it, A garden; Which I hadn’t frequented in a while Which I knew existed But now had towers and skyscrapers Blocking its pristine view. * The world in which we live today Is made up of concrete blocks Instead of trees. Raped by …

A Whole New World Within

  A Whole New World Within Another year nearly coming to an end. Many untold stories still lie buried within. Guided by the unknown, Embarking on a new journey. This heart would learn to embrace, And discover the inner soul. *   “Don’t Judge a book by its cover” A …

A Stampede In My Mind

By:- rANJEETA nATH gHAI A tempest, Of emotions Exploding up Like lava Seeping out through Every nook and crevice Of my soul Showing mercy to none. * “Calm down,” I tell myself There’s nothing that Worrying can ever change. What is to be. Will be. Whatever happens, will happen for …
