Bounce back

There is a pit, a very deep and dark pit. You are falling into it and no one knows what’s at the bottom or even if there is a bottom or an end to it. Anyway, let us for now assume there is a bottom. You will now ask me what is it? Is it something that’s gonna hold you back or is it bouncy?

What I believe is you decide about the bottom, you decide what’s it made of. Is it something that’s gonna hold you back or is it something that’s gonna bounce you back? Your mindset and beliefs decide the substance of the pit.

A person might see something as a failure and someone else might see the same thing as a challenge or as a lesson or maybe even as a phase. I have been listening to an entrepreneur and he heavily focuses on mindset and then I tried rectifying the things I’ve been doing wrong (a lot of them) and in the end, it all comes to how you perceive things.

And how you percieve things and how you react shapes your life. Also, your background, schooling, friends will play a large role but once you realize you need corrections then things kind of get on the track. I am slowly realizing that I’ve had a wrong lens. I’ve seen life largely through my prior experiences which also lead me to form pre-concieved notions.

Anyway, I am trying to change the mindset. It will take time but I will try and be persistent.

 

Let go

I don’t want you to go
But yet we must say
Our goodbyes
If we want out lives
To pass,I need to let go
Just because you don’t
Want to hold on

The Nights

The nights
That are dark
Are also
Full of secrets
And pain

The nights
That are silent
Have witnessed
Cries and tears
And pain

The nights
Aren’t as silent
As you think
They are

They are
Full of secrets
And happiness and pain.

Smiling more is good.

I am that type of a person who generally doesn’t smile,and many people have told me so.I know this is bad and it should be changed.Even a school kid passing on the street asks me “aap haste nahi ho kya?”(You don’t smile?).
And I also happen to focus on negative things,which results in over thinking.I shall stop all this and make positive approach towards life and everything.I’m a cheerful person when with people but alone I’m serious as hell,I wonder why.
I am smiling right now and it feels good.What do you say about it?

A day in her life (2)

This is the continuation of this short poem.

Raindrops start to fall from sky
She looks up and smiles
Choking on her breath
She thanks The Almighty
For it hides her tears
And her ruined face.

The scars didn’t hurt
At least not anymore
But the looks on the face
Did made her heart skip a beat

She would take a long gulp of air
And tell herself to be strong
Only to collapse
Whenever she got alone

It was hard
To carry a burden so heavy
Betrayal was something
She couldn’t really stand at all

But all that happened
Cannot be changed at all
All that’s left is
Her ruined face
And a broken heart.

This is something I wrote keeping in mind the abuses faced by women and her ruined face here indicates that she was attacked with acid by someone who was close to her.I can only imagine how painful and hard life would become for the victims.Thank you for the response on the first part of this and please pardon me for making any mistakes,I’m not much of a poet.

A day in HER life.

Raindrops start to fall from sky
She looks up and smiles
Choking on her breath
She thanks The Almighty
For it hides her tears
And her ruined face.

It is weird how I get nothing for weeks and my mind stays blank and all of a sudden it all comes back like water rushing down the hill and I start writing out of the blue.I will also use this opportunity to thank Nishita13(her blog),for encouraging me via comments on my previous haiku(s) and poems,thank you.

A bench in the park

She sits on a bench in the park
Alone,sad with a rose in her hand
Waiting for the one
Who’ll never come.
