I am

At 10, I looked like someone who missed childhood and teenage years to go straight into being an adult. I remember vividly, that I used to hear a lot of whispers and feedback that I was “Not a good girl.” At that time when someone is branded as not bring a ‘good girl’ it meantContinue reading “I am”

In your little one…

In your little one … I’ll find the echoes of your laughterWhile you stroll in heavenly peaceThe skies will be lit with your memories I’ll find the huskiness of your voiceWhile you show up in dreamsThe remembrances will linger on I’ll find the humor that I’ve lostWhile you loiter in my mindThe stories of youContinue reading “In your little one…”

Unrequited (Love)

I hide this feelingTo keep a secretIt’s perhaps forbiddenAnd better unrequited There’s nothing moreBesides a nagging prickThat it’s beyond controlBut I can’t stop Some days are lowThoughts old and newWhat you might be uptoUnaware that I still love you Words turned poetryWhile I waited longTo woo your smileOnly to burn endlessly No future is oursYet,Continue reading “Unrequited (Love)”

15th Anniversary

I seldom write about my husband. If I do, it is a one-sided banter. This year on our 15th social wedding anniversary, I won’t proclaim that he is the love of my life or the greatest thing that happened to me or that our relationship is magical or that we have amazing chemistry. Because allContinue reading “15th Anniversary”

Rest in Heaven

Even when we’ve memories of a lifetimeThere will be moments when we miss youTo come to terms you’re gone foreverWon’t make it better for any of usBut knowing that you’re immortal Is the strength we muster to move onThat you’ll perhaps watch over us Especially when we most need Your absence is going to hurtContinue reading “Rest in Heaven”

Overcoming Inadequacies

I never felt this complete before. There are so many indequacies I’ve overcome this year although it’s not even three months since new year. It took me to overcome intrinsic, personal, unconscious biases that I harbored and the boundaries in my mind. My struggle with infertility and the state of mind it often leads toContinue reading “Overcoming Inadequacies”

Call for Mentors

“Imagination is the beginning of creation. You imagine what you desire, you will what you imagine and at last you create what you will,” said George Bernard Shaw. When I was a 5th grader I declared in front of the whole class, my class teacher, and my 4th grade English teacher about my father beingContinue reading “Call for Mentors”

I Am Not Afraid

There were timesWhere my tears were terrifyingThe thoughts of losing loveFelt worse than deathNot that it was exaggeratedBut heart had it reasonsFear superceded all hopeUntil I realized it’s matter of time When doors close on meI am not afraid to lookFor that window of better lifePiece of that heaven on earthEven though it is neverContinue reading “I Am Not Afraid”
