Shallow Life

A lean figure he sat immersed in his thoughts
creasing his brows together
Simply dressed in pale blue clothes
he rested his head up on a armchair
He had nothing to boast of
no handsome looks or six pack abs
even his hair fell dryly on one side
without being spiked or worth calling it cool
Flesh on his bones clung enough to comfort him
and smile appeared for fraction before being further ridiculed.
Who would care for his humility or his genuineness in this world
where gimmicks and superficial living is treated better and preferred?
He ain’t any popular or socially tagged as being smart
yet the simplicity he carried weighed too much for him, a real painful curse.
His calm composed face didn’t reflect his innermost feelings
rather he quietly burned the turmoiled ashes deep inside his soul
Who would anyways care for a heart that he had
Spiked with love and packed with dozens of good deeds
A heart that knew how to beat for others sacrificing his own happiness or dreams?

Betrayal

Everything possibly done
for their sake and happiness
forgetting myself 
devoted needed time and efforts
when lonely and dejected
cheered and comforted them
made sure their smile doesn’t fade away.
Yet, when I  am in need or needed them
my presence was ignored
my words were mocked at
why couldn’t I receive a bit of humane appreciation
for my hard earned achievements 
when their every wish of being special  I fulfilled
it hurts that those were the ones closest to me 
No, I won’t stop being good to them or brood over
nor would I be silly to seek revenge
But, yes, I have learnt it the hard way
so,  have decided to excuse myself 
or turn aloof a bit from such complicated relations.

Rebellion

Little tantrums you show
Messing things all around
Huge scowls you throw
Shuddering me off the ground
How do I believe when you say all is well
Your stubborn ways are too violent
have now turned me into a Rebel.

JUST A MOMENT


Just a moment it all takes…for a Thalessemia test,every life is precious;so get yourself checked now before you later on regret.
Just a moment it all takes… if you find that both the spouses are Thalessemia minor;there are higher chances of having a baby born  with Thalessemia Major .
Just a moment it all takes…to be aware that these patients require blood transfusion regularly but live normally as we;so don’t shy away to donate blood to the needy.
Just a moment it all takes… to note examples of SURVIVORS who are emanate the poise for life;overcoming every hurdle and marking every mile.
Just a moment it all takes…for knowing that a Thalessemia  is NOT A CURSE; It is an blood disorder and needs to be rightly nursed.
Just a moment it all takes…for showing your support and loving them happily;Thalessemia Majors are strong fighters born to make their  own destiny.
Just a moment it all takes…to avoid young kids to cry with pain; as awareness will bring solace to many ignorant people down the lane.

Damn- Ignorance Hurts!!!

Hey friends, today as you read this title, you must be wondering ” why whats wrong?”. Yes, it is the same reaction I gave when Swati- my fellow blogger and friend decided to close down her blog!!!

We all are born to love and expect the same from others. A writer is a person that pens down his imagery through stories,poems etc.It is a way to connect your inner self and also nurture that talent like all are born with.Whether you accept or not, every comment makes a writer’s day and boosts his/her confidence to give the best.

So, here I introduce my friend
Swati Shobha Sevlani-http://swatishobhasevlani.blogspot.in/who is multi- talented individual who writes wonderful poetries, awesome artist and photographer…each of which she has dedicated an individual blog to present to the audience.

She is a published author having her works published and recognized both at the National as well as International Level.
Her sense of reflective words encompasses a readers soul and so does sketches and photography.

Hey…Swati, there were times when even I have faced critics and harsh feedback that writing is a waste ….trying to pull me down …. sometimes even today…but I have decided to make my own destiny and risen like a Phoenix….I ain’t some scholar who would give speeches and proclaim big stories…just request you dear to consider this plea.

I could go on with this list of attributes but I want to cut it short and let yourself drive to her blog rather than me taking away the focus.

Hope you all friends will appreciate and give her feedback too which she make her Believe Herself and change her decision.
