A fresh start

When I see the world from pure lenses,

There are many things that awaken my senses,

I see purity in a mother’s eye,

I hear the laughter in a child’s voice,

I see the nature which is pure and untouched,

I notice a person who is inspired and unperturbed,

I hear friendly voices over cups of coffee,

I see the sailing boats coming from deep seas,

I hear the chants that help meditate,

These are some words that we should replicate,

These things truly warm my heart,

And give my mind a fresh start!

Reflections

Whenever I close my eyes to relax,

It’s not always to sleep but to reflect,

It is necessary to reflect after a tough day,

To help understand what went well and what went awry,

Our reflections portray our inherent character,

So don’t get swayed if there is something to bother,

You get a chance to correct your misdoings,

And start with a prayer in the fresh mornings,

Every day you’ll learn a thing or two,

When you reflect without much ado,

So keep that smile on your lips,

And find your inner peace and the bliss.

Keep your chin up

Whenever you are despondent and nothing seems right,

Keep your chin up.

When the winds are not blowing in the right direction,

Keep your chin up.

When someone troubles you with meaningless words,

Keep your chin up.

If the weather is bad and you want to remain sad,

Keep your chin up.

Because this small gesture can lift your mood,

And take you out of your brood.

Never give up…

Giving up something is not the right way,

You have to be at it, though your mind might run astray.

You have to find your own motivations,

And do not look at the situation with resignation.

Keep in mind it is essential to be at it,

Otherwise your mind will waiver and you’ll lose it.

There are times when you are dreaming big,

And there are times when you can’t think straight.

In both these situations, just keep the faith.

Spend your time with your friends and family,

And do not be despondent, it’s just a random thought.

Remember, giving up is the easiest thing to do,

You can think of solutions, one or two.

When you feel a new vibe that brightens you up,

Think of your plans again and cheer yourself up.

Summer woes

In this scorching heat which is tough to beat,

I think about the clouds, dense and shroud,

When will you come back dear monsoon,

We are counting the days, please come soon.

I am losing my plants to the intense heat,

There is no way to save them or cheat the sun.

When going outside is a task,

And you have to cover yourself with a mask.

Can’t express how the rains would feel,

When people can go out with a new zeal!
