Life and Passion

I’ve been here for so long,
Writing about where we as humans belong.
For a while now, I’ve been singing this song,
Without knowing about the things around.
Naive, I may have been,
But, I was just following my dream.
Spreading the word of passion, spreading the word of love,
Many did try before me, but none of us want to evolve.
Does passion really matter?
I have been asking myself this for some time!
I don’t know why it took too long for me to answer,
For without it, my life here would really have been a disaster!

Everyday, I wake up and start my day,
I only see stories along the way.
I can see people, who are stuck with a routine,
I can see kids enjoying their first day as a teen.
I can see an old couple experiencing a movie, without getting offended,
And I can definitely see the capable ones staying silent.
Why is it, we are suffering this intolerable violence?
It could be physical, it could be mental, lord knows what.
May be, it could be because, we have stopped caring about art.
Can passion change humans?
I still remember, a kid from my school, who danced with only one hand.
His passion definitely brought mine back to life,
And only thing that did bother me was, how much did he have to stive!

I sit down and watch the news,
All I see is bunch of people screaming, just for some views.
Defaming anyone they feel is guilty,
While they just randomly, sip tea and coffee.
Deconstructing rhymes and lines just to find something that is not right,
Well, don’t you read the disclaimer, that it’s a work of fiction, and not every word should be right!
If they do love critiquing, how good would they be in writing?
Amazing I believe, for they can create a fake story, which can destroy a man’s history.
I look around and think,
In this situation, can passion really sustain?
If it doesn’t, the work of many generations would be in vain.
For I can assure that passion can bring the change,
For the voice of it, can reach ears and eyes of even those who aren’t in range.

A blind can feel an art. A deaf can feel the music. A dumb can sing!
For there is nothing that can stop the passion within.
It’s like like the engine of the soul,
It’s the only thing that can help one reach their goal.
Getting up is never easy after they are down,
But when one has the passion,
They could easily win that crown.
But in reality, no one would want it,
For they know, they aren’t in for that.
I do say, passion can make every one a better person,
For it did teach me, the most important of lessons,
All you have to do in life, is keep going,
Even when you feel nothing has been moving.

I’ve been here for so long,
I don’t know how I ended being this strong!
I’ve seen things around me falling apart,
Calling me towards my unhappy past!
Loud, those noises may have been,
But, there is a lot throughout my journey, I have seen.
Holding on, staying strong, I know it’ll help me in going far!
All by my side was that one thing, the kept me hooked to that star!
My love for poetry, immeasurable it may be,
All I know, it made me believe in me!
All I know, it did make me free!
All it did, was prove how passion does matter in shaping in a destiny!

Everyday, all I pray, is for a future that I always wanted to see
A world where people rise above what they have been groomed to be,
More than a puppet, that is stuck in a routine,
Chasing something that they have created an illusion of in their dream!

Hope this poem helps you in any way! Oh, one person who could be an inspiration in this sense could easily be Beethoven. His love for music never left to cease even after his hearing ability began to deteriorate!

Do drop in your thoughts on this poem and will be back with another post soon! Like and share it, if you feel life here can get better!

Are we really living?

Trapped in my own soul,
Is this what I thought was my goal!
Certainly not, for doing that would only make me a fool!
Then where was the point I went wrong,
That’s a question for which an answer I’ve been wanting to find for long,
Alas, only if I had been strong.
While I say all these, all I can remember are those times,
Where all those dreams were young and everything seemed nice!
All I am left with, is a land filled with lies!
Running down the streams,
The irresistible feeling on my face, when I’m hit with a breeze!
Fighting all day and none getting offended,
Such days, now are just another dead end!

Trapped in my own soul,
Can’t find a single space, to get out of this black hole!
Everyday, I’ve been asking where I had gone away!
Yet, I still remember those days, when my imagination would go stray
And that would always make my day,
All I can see today is butts of cigarettes mixed with ash in the tray!
Coming back home while the clocks struck seven,
Delicious appetizers made hot by my mum, would always remind me of a time that was truly a heaven!
Those were some days, when innocence was a great trait,
Happiness and love never had any template!

Can I get back my childhood,
For now that I stand where my parents stood,
Looking up to my parents,
Today I realise all that they’ve done for me,
Has a value that no one can ever see!
I only hope people would realise this too,
Looking through these characters and illusions!
Living in fear from the senseless superstitions!

Today I fear for every time I try to rhyme,
For getting laughed at is a feeling worse than getting caught for a crime,
But as a child, I would have said things without any filter,
And everything would would be straight from the heart, that I always said without any stutter!
Even if the world laughed, I’d be proud that I had spread laughter,
For every thing around me, makes me want to slaughter!Can I get back that childhood of mine,
Where all I had was love and smile!
By the time you read this, I’d be away
Where there’s an everlasting day!

Been trapped in my own soul,
All that happened because, I never let the child in me become whole!
At that moment I knew,
And I say this to you;
If you had to live for someone,
Live for that child in you!
For he hoped a great deal of you!

In the end, keeping that child in us alive could help us survive!

Let me know your thoughts on this! Will be back with another great post!

Passion

Carpe diem. Seize the day, boys. Make your lives extraordinary.

~Robin Williams (Dead Poets Society)

How hard can life be? Is there any way we could make life easier?

I honestly cannot answer those questions, but there’s something that could help us survive along this path we call life.

Passion.

What is passion and why am I writing about it?

Every one would have their own meaning for it, but passion for me, is that fierce emotion that has kept me going for a lot of time.

But does it really matter, in a world where money runs things and we run after money, passion could be forgotten.

You’re only given a little spark of madness. You mustn’t lose it.
~Robin Williams

There’s this small piece that I wrote, hope it helps!

How long has it been since I was away? Five months. That’s been a bit too long now, hasn’t it?

Let’s hope the next post doesn’t take this much time!

Do let me know your thoughts on Passion until then!

You know what music is? God’s little reminder that there’s something else besides us in this universe, harmonic connection between all living beings, everywhere, even the stars.

Thank You.

A charming little kid came to me one day,
Asked me what I did, and suddenly, I had
nothing to say.
So, I asked him what he wanted to be
“To be the man, my mum wants me to be!”
And what kind of a man would that be?
“Just the one who makes others life happy!”
I realised then where my place currently is
in this journey
All ever wanted in my life was to be free!
Free from the thoughts of agony and
misery.
But now I see,
All I see is pain around me!
I grew up having a small dream,
To be a person, that no one has ever seen.
All ever wanted was to see the world
smile,
And be with the person that would walk
with me for 500 miles.
But adulthood hit me, and what I am now, is
filled with lies.
The soul in me, today, it cries,
For it too knows, the best thing that could
happen in my life,
Is to be the person people pointed at and
said,
You see that guy right there,
He’s the one who brought me out of
despair.
And made me realize my worth,
And thanks to him, I learned to pick myself
up!”
Yes, all my life, all I wanted was to Inspire
people,
To help them be the best version of
themselves possible.

Hey everyone. Honestly, I have no idea where to begin. I started this blog, 4 years ago. Who knew, back then, where I’d end up being. Just a kid, I was, learning the ways of the world and strange it was that I was writing motivational and moving words. In the beginning, all I wanted to do through this blog was to reach out to people, and may be help them be the better version of themselves. Some may have thought, what would a kid teach us about life, I’d say they have no idea, what a child is capable of.

Since then, I’ve come a long way myself. My poetry skills have improved over the time. My blog’s reach has improved. I’ve received really overwhelming responses for all my write ups. The topics that I’ve chosen to write or even speak about, most people have seen it around them, yet it barely gets it’s place in everyday conversation.

I am not out here writing great stuff, all I’m doing here is helping you remind yourself what a truly deserving person you are, it is just silly that we need people to self assure themselves of their greatness.

But to be honest, yes. I’ve also had hard times, I’ve also had to deal with stuff that I have not spoken about, and one of the things that kept me going was the responses sent by you. People have also sent me feedbacks, which has helped me, but those positive reassuring words you have sent, has actually made sure I kept writing.

I started writing for the sake of it, but over the years, I’ve come to known, it is a part of me now and when I know some one out there is reading my work and even if makes them feel a bit happier or even a bit inspired, it makes my soul happy.

I am eternally grateful.

Thank you.

PS. Just for sticking around till the end, I have a surprise coming out soon for you all.

Keep reading and keep loving!

I’ll be back with another amazing post, until then #LIVEyOURLIFE and lift everyone higher.

Is Art Necessary!

Is there a part of you,

That loves to hum to your favourite tune?

Is there a part of you,

That wants to be a part of a story, you just read through?

Oh child, if all these are true,

Then, art has had it’s effect on you!

Could you just imagine a day now,

Where all you could do is work,

And your life would just go idly by,

No memories, no emotions, even if you’d want to, you couldn’t cry

Because, all you’d be is just a droid with a useless heart!

Music, art and poetry, help us make and shape our soul,

Oh Child, so why do we mock them, for they are the one makes us human!

There are some creations that give us hope,

There are some pieces that help us gain control,

There are some songs that reminds us of our home!

Art is something, connects us all,

Art can bring peace in the midst of a war,

Art is all I could ask for,

Because darling, art is the language of love!

I wouldn’t have heard or seen an artist piece, never has there been a day,

And never will I deny that, their work has changed me in a way.

If you know me or have read my old posts, you may know how much I love art and artists too. Art has changed me, in a way, I could never explain. Art is an essential tool for survival, if you have been following my blog, you’d remember a post wherein, I looked into what would’ve happened if there was no art.

But, why is art important though?

Art is a result of curiosity and satisfaction. A human mind, over the years has used creativity to grow as a species, today, we use that creativity to channel a part of our soul into our creations, that is why we it is easy as a human for us to connect ourselves to any art, be it a song, an art or even a simple poetry.

Art, today has become a food for our soul, and that is why it helps us be ourselves. It helps us be in control and that is why, it ends us giving hope that one day, our life will also be perfect, just like that piece of art.

To put it in a different way, art provides us with a sense of belonging. As, human is a social creature in the end, we love to belong to a group we closely relate ourselves with. And most of the times it wouldn’t be difficult for us to notice that art is just a reflection of our culture.

Art sometimes helps us being emotional. It makes sure our soul has felt something, and when our soul feels something, it makes us more human. We may have created art, but in the end, art is the one that shaped us.

Many artists over the years have left a mark in the human history, but not all may be relevant to our time and lifestyle, so I’d love to leave you with a few words by a couple of great artists:

Dead Poets Society-01Stan lee-01

You could read more about how art affects us through over here:

Why do humans make art!

After I read a lot about how art actually shaped us, I’m proud to say that I’m a fellow artist. Thank you for reading, do let me know what your thoughts on art are! I’ll be back with another post (soon, I hope) until then, #LIVE_yOUR_LIFE and #StandUpForHumanity. I’ll leave it unto you to decide whether art is necessary!

 

Error 404: Democracy!

I try my best to live my life,

You come up to me, selling all these lies,

Killing my hope and trying to blow my mind.

Honestly, the fact that, you think I’m a threat,

Made me realise, I’m already perfect.

Stop your unnecessary hatred, for I know art is the need of the hour,

Let us be and let us bring that art to life, which you want to censor.

Oh my, that hurts your tolerant brain,

Oh my, but you said the idea of intolerance is just in our brain!

Scaring us of, by attempting to hurt us and our family,

Man, now this just crosses the line, silly.

I tried to stay out of this cat-fight,

But it’s about time, I bring these facts in to the light.

Freedom may be just a myth,

Cause, privacy doesn’t even exist.

PS. Did I mention this applies to those only who are innocent!

“Let the crime happen,

Then let’s blame everyone else, it’d be fun.

We’ll slide in to those DM’s by our media,

Cause, who on earth actually cares about sources!

Solving the problem temporarily, is how we roll,

Ruling for 5 years, indefinitely is our goal.

Development will be provided, to our team,

And let’s give the public a new topic to bash about.”

I’m sick and tired of the politicizing of the smallest of things,

Well, what can we expect from the people who would actually prefer an animal to a human.

Here’s a newsflash guys, humans are animals too,

Large species eat smaller species,

That’s simple science!

Sorry, you guys may not understand that,

Maybe because, one of you believe, artificial satellites existed centuries ago.

We gave the world zero,

But you make us look zero.

Then there those, who feel nepotism rocks.

Why is it so hard for you guys to see?

That democracy is efficient only when the nation is corruption and red-tapism free!

We need security and safety,

Sometimes, we seek some transparency.

Stop trying to curb our freedom,

To speak, to eat and to love,

Let go of your laundering skills

And actually give us development.

Give us education, and get yourself educated

Give us jobs, and get yourself some taxes

Give us better public infrastructure, and get yourself our trust.

And, maybe we will share the happiness, by giving you the power for the next 5 years and getting back the ‘JUST’.

 

In all honesty, we have fallen a lot to build the empire that stands tall today, but, we shouldn’t forget, who we are and what actual freedom is. We chose democracy, for stability and growth, but if it fails to deliver that, then something is wrong.

If you can’t stand up, leave.

Sting! Sting! Sting!

My head started to sting!

All I could do was let that hideous thought, kill my spirit,

I write my feelings out,

But then there comes in this guy

Being all smart and sick,

“Stop trying to get attention!”

Perhaps, your skull is so thick,

Can’t you understand,

Your one word may foever leave a mark.

One may be a Tony Stark,

Or even an Arya, hell even Sansa Stark!

Every one has to face struggle and sometimes they need help.

So, stop trying to be the cool guy with an attitude,

Playing with someone’s feelings, you are a fool.

We know you care for none but yourself,

But at least, use your peanut sized brain,

Oh wait, I forgot you lost your sesne of humanity,

Sometimes, it takes time to develop an immunity, for your stupidity.

Grow up and stop normalizing bullying and shaming.

For you never know, your child may be next.

If you can’t love or stand up for someone,

Just sit or better yet leave their space, for that ain’t no crime.

Hey everyone, I was actually working on something else, but these verse actually came into my mind, so I continued with them.

I’ve voiced a lot of times against bullying and shaming. Well, the response I’ve received for those is actually mixed. I wonder why!

Most of them who read them, agreed to the fact that bullying and shaming need to be stopped. That’s good, isn’t it?

Perhaps, but, we have a lot on stake. There were people who actually felt, bullying and shaming is just a form of joke that a kid needs for them to become strong.

Big and huge person, with six senses and a highly developed brain, say what!!

No, nope, ne, non, nein, net, nahi.

I know people personally who have gone through bullying and shaming. It leaves a huge scar on their life for ever. If left ignored, it creates a huge hole in their life that it makes them unable to fill it up, and when it is too late, no amount of help is enough.

When someone actually conjures the strength to actually move on, and ask for help, it is our duty as a human to actually help them, no matter who they are.

I started this blog just for this purpose.

Parents, especially need to start intervening into these matters.

Also, I’d love to point out that there’s no social skill or any professional skilll to be gained by actually shaming people, except maybe a few laughs here and there with a pinch of popularity among your so called “friends”. But believe me, the hatred the victim may have for you, is nothing compared to that.

sad-505857_1920-01


In one of my previous posts, I had mentioned how CBSE had taken action on Bullying and many colleges have banned ragging. But, I have not seen any development since then. It’s like all the media and the government is interested in, is animals.

Will be back with an amazing post; until then, #LIVEyOURLIFE and #STANDUPFORHUMANITY.
