    Why Do We Cry Alone?

    I came into the world crying Crying was my first words Crying I called you and crying I hugged you But today, I am afraid to cry in front of you Oh! Why do I cry alone?   I don’t laugh alone I don’t celebrate alone I don’t holiday alone Then, why do I have to cry alone?   Crying is important Crying is healthy Crying is natural Then why do I cry alone?   You cry She cries He cries We all cry But why do we all cry alone?   Why do we feel judged when we cry? Why do we feel weak when tears flow down our…

    2:09 AM

    What do you do when you set out on a cross country, round trip drive spanning more than 2000 kms extending from Arabian Sea to Bay of Bengal and back? I don’t know what you do, but this is what I did. After I was done arguing, debating, justifying and negotiating with my family (co-passengers) I drove, I thought, I listened to music and I had some very  ground breaking realizations. Sharing some of these soul stirring emotions on my blog: It is not just the beauty of the landscape or the smoothness of the road which make the journey memorable. More so, it is the unexpected bumps, speed breakers,…

    Shedding Dead Weight

    When we fall and hurt ourselves, our body develops a scab to heal itself. As soon as the body heals, the scab falls and the body is back to being light and free. Imagine, if the scab never fell. Imagine, if everytime we got hurt we accumulated more dead skin on top of our body. Imagine, the weight of the dead cells we would be carrying in a few years and over a lifetime. How grotesque our body would look and how heavy it would feel with so much baggae to carry. Now imagine that one day someone came along and took off a piece of the dead skin to…

    A Flower bloomed outside my gate I stopped to marvel it’s beauty, it’s poise And click a picture while at it Stepped in my car and sped off to a new adventure at the vegetable cart Watermelons, papayas,bananas abound Oh dear! Mangoes nowhere to be found Loaded bags with supplies for the week start I stepped out of the car to greet a shock The Flower was gone Oh! Life so short! It just bloomed this morning! Who could be so ruthless to pluck it so early Why are men so selfish !! Then as if the flower spoke to me The purpose of my life is to bloom and…

    The House that we Live In

    If you are a Middle Class individual residing in the same house for over an year, you will relate to this. I can’t say when it all started but I can look back at least a month and know that something is wrong with my home. It is like there is a bad energy shadowing our home and impacting everything in it. I hear cats crying early in the morning and I see bird poop littering my beautiful veranda. I see spiders crawling my walls and ants running across my kitchen counter. If the creepy crawlers are not enough, our toilets and taps are leaking, and there is a flood…

    Lost Love

    You were the first thing that made my morning You were the reason for my smile in the evening You were the balm for my splitting headache You were also the perfect company when I wanted to be alone   You made my presentations better You got my friends together You pushed me to never give up With you, I always felt and alert   But then, we parted ways For better or for worse, who knows My headaches have returned My mood swings keep me busy   My heart knows, you can always make things better But my mind refuses to see the sight of you I have never…

    My Offer to You

    I do not offer anything to anyone But simply, a part of me   All that I know, I do not preach Cause there is nothing I know that hasn’t been said already   All that I do, I do not share Cause I do that for no one else but me   All that I have, I do not tell Cause it is not mine for eternity   All that I love, I do not pride Cause I know I can love much more   All that I donate, I do not boast Cause there are so many more in need   All that I write, I do not…
