Stop, and find your way to Freedom

freedom

Ic : Internet/Google

Stop galloping, and you will breathe,

Stop going haywire and you will arrive at your destination,

Stop looking out, for you shall encounter ‘peace’ within,

Give a pause to talking, you will listen to the melody of life,

Stop crying and whining, to smile and enjoy the Creator’s Creation,

Stop yelling and you will connect with silence,

Stop holding on, and you will find freedom !!

Little Things….

Little things.jpg

Simple things in life are free,

A hug, laughter and a smile,

A pat on the back, wouldn’t hurt, once in a while.

A word of praise, a compliment,

A simple appreciation,

Could add to one’s emotional achievement.

A thank you note, a caring stroke,

A kind gesture to light up fellow folks,

A little practice of gratitude, wouldn’t hurt, to bring about a change in attitude.

It’s never too late to begin our journey,

To enjoy the little things in life,

Let’s extend a helping hand of kindness and laughter to someone, today,

As we spread our wings, to reach towards the sky !!

 

Growing Wings.. November Writing Prompt #4

butterfly

Everyday, I am growing wings,

Little by little, when I fight my fears, and go beyond,

When I prod myself to lift my spirits, and move on.

Everyday, I am growing wings,

Little by little, when I become aware, of my limitations,

And work on burying them, to make a mark from there on.

Everyday, I am growing wings,

Little by little, when I learn, from my experiences and carry on,

Leaving the erroneous happenings behind, to make fresh beginnings, to live life full on !!

I am growing wings, to propel me a little higher,

From where I stand today,

To a newer, fresher and higher beginning,

To make a mark for each new day !

Life’s Maze..

life's maze

Different paths of life,

Some circular, some curvy,

Some straight like a ramrod, some topsy-turvy,

Some pave our way and are arduous, some joyous, some unpleasant treacherous ones,

Unpredictable twists and turns,

Some bushy and thorny,

Sometimes a simple and plain journey,

We ought to find our ways,

Through life’s difficult maze !!

If Not..

If not, for the genuine tears that flow, who would care for the emotions,

If not, for the melancholy of grief, who would appreciate happiness,

If not, for the baffling complexities, who would recognize simplicity,

If not, for the hunger of needs, who would enjoy the cuisines of existence,

If not, for the bitter hatred, who would cherish the unconditional love,

If not, for death, who would care for the gift of invaluable life,

If not, for the deep desire of the soul within, who would care for the experiences !!

 

If everything we got or had would last forever, how would the quality of life be?

We enjoy life, because of the polarities that exist, which makes us strive for and also appreciate our blessings.

The above written post is one of my random ramblings, do feel free to share your thoughts..

My Bestie…

via Daily Prompt: Rapid

woman-570883__340.jpg

You are calm, you are dutiful,

You connect to the world within me, making me peaceful,

You provide me life and stay a lifetime with me,

 You are my loyal friend, for till the end, you are with me.

When I am angry, you work at a rapid pace,

You are the only one who runs along with me in every race,

You are the most precious asset,

Taking care of you is the best bet,

From the time in the womb to birth, to death,

You are the life saving mechanism, 

I bow down to you for being there for me, my dear BREATH !!

Flaunt your Gratitude, not Attitude!!

via Daily Prompt: Flaunt

celebrate-954794__340.jpg

When we let go of gratitude

We open the doors of life to attitude,

It Brings along a host of its dubious pals,

And we fall prey to their numerous calls,

We then flaunt arrogance, anger, stature and ego in style,

Giving them the unintended importance, for the next mile,

Till we realize our callous attitude,

Which makes us crumble in solitude,

We need to make amends of humongous magnitude

To recall and restore the lost GRATITUDE !!

If tomorrow comes..

via Daily Prompt: Radiant

Today is,

is the birth and inception of a new day,

Today is,

the day, your chance to bask in the glorious sunshine,

Today is,

the day to begin, to enjoy the fresh spring flowers,

Today is,

the day to sway in the resplendent and radiant nature,

Today is,

the launch to unearth and discover the new “YOU”,

Today is,

the first day to commence the rest of your life,

Today is,

the day to locate the divine address within you.

Today is,

the day you have been blessed with,

Today is,

the day to appreciate life and be ever grateful,

For you know not,

If tomorrow comes…

Come Back…

via Daily Prompt: Betrayed

You entered my womb,

I carried you,

You entered the world

And I nurtured you,

You brought love and smiles,

And I learnt from you,

You were my joy and my life..

Just when I thought, all is well,

You left me high and dry and went far away,

Reaching for you and looking up in the sky,

I’ve forgotten to breathe, I’ve forgotten to live,

My throat is parched,

And I’ve exhausted my tears,

A few months gone by, I feel it’s years,

I feel betrayed, I feel isolated in the midst of people,

Come back, my dear child,

Teach me to breathe and teach me to live again.

 

My God, My Talisman

via Daily Prompt: Talisman

mandala-2241050__340.png

I am the chosen one to be me,

I am the one worthy to be me,

No one, but me suited this being,

And I was given the chance to be me…

My life is a gift unto me.

My breath is a prayer unto Him,

My prayer is devotion unto Him,

My love is a feeling unto Him &

My feeling is love and surrender unto Him.

My experiences are solely mine,

My life occurrences , the intention of divine,

The divine power and strength is my Talisman,

Which gives me the power in life to go on and on.
