Appreciate, For There’s Life at Stake !

Where do I go now?
For every where I see, is just a closed wall,
That keeps me trapped in a fantasy.
What do I say now?
For I’ve been screaming for long,
Oh does anyone hear my voiceless call?

How do I walk now?
For, I’ve been trembling at every step,
All those past horrors, behind me they silently crept.
I honestly cannot lock up this feeling now,
For it would only grow stronger, if it is just left to wander.

Getting hit by these rhythm less beats, inside my mind,
I kept on asking myself,
Was there any ultimate path, that I had to find?
People think it’d better for me to look back and fight,
But how could I, for it was the light, that robbed me of my right!

All those voices, noises inside my head,
Feels like, I’m being hit by a rod of lead!
No one I have, whom I could say this to,
I did give up on life when I could see nothing new,

Change they say, heals you,
But when would that change ever occur, I sure never knew!
You say, I should’ve tried,
Well if I said I hadn’t tried, that would clearly be just a lie!
Oh why oh why! my dear life, have you been so sly!

Why is life unfair I ask, then I see towards my left
I see a father feeding his kid, though he looked pale,
Hadn’t eaten in days, yet gave his child the last piece of biscuit.
If looking at that doesn’t make your heart melt, nothing will.

That little thing around me, kept me going that day,
For I felt there was hope, even for the hopeless,
But doesn’t it just take one little push,
To turn this world into a space, that’s just colourless!

I did realize, all I needed was a voice from outside,
That would have broken the closed wall,
And answered to that voiceless call,
Calmed me down and made me believe I could find and walk my path,
Helped me in trusting the light, that I’ve been blaming my whole life.

May be, it’s true everyone needs someone, who make them feel good,
Things that they’d do, just to see them smile, shouldn’t everyone deserve this too.
May be, the end, isn’t what everyone has been hoping it to be,
Because it ends up being another illusion that we will never be able to see!

Appreciate things around You.

To everyone who is reading this, just want to remind you that, life is incredibly short. I’ve seen two close deaths in the past year. You really never know when you are going to see someone for the last time. It’s about time, you start appreciating the presence of people you actually care about.

Sometimes, you never know what battles the person is going through, small and kind words from you could do wonders. Please do not hold anything back. One word. One Sentence. One Person. One small hand could make huge difference. This poem is just a tribute to that!

It’s really been an honour that you have been reading my blog. I started it 5 years back with the sole motive of helping people realize their true potential. I really hope I might’ve succeeded in helping at least one person.

Keeping this milestone in mind, I am thrilled to say that my debut book, “Lift Me Higher” is finally available for sale through my website! It is a compilation of most of the lessons I’ve learned in my life, penned in the form of poems.

Lift Me Higher – By Amith Chhabria

 

Hoping you would like it. Do let me know what you thought about this one and will be back with another amazing poem/post ! Until then, #LIVEyOURLIFE. ❤

An Unfulfilling Circle


Just another day of toil, it was for that guy,

Years of working hard, he had lost his hope that one day, this life would bring him peace.

Waking up and following that routine life,

To catch that scheduled rail, every day, he would strive!

Just another day of this charades he thought this would be,

But things never remain the same, and that day was one such instance,

Listening to the customized playlist of his, he continued his day.

Observing the entire crowded space, he could wonder what their stories would be.

Someone reading that fiction, that was a major hit,

While some listening to the old classics!

Gossip around the air, among that group of three,

Some kid, trying to get free, because of the unending curiosity.

And sometimes he could see familiar faces, living the same life.

Looking at this, did lighten his heart, as he starts his day,

Reaches his workspace and greets the ones he knew,

As the day kept going, he did feel exhausted,

Never was a point in his career, was his work appreciated,

By the end of the day, he kept asking himself, why he entered this field,

He just had his fake smile on him, and got up as he thought he was done for the day,

Well, the 9-5 job did think otherwise, and he had to stay back,

The energy to continue though, he did lack.

And finally, when he did leave, he looked around, there was not a single soul around him that he could see.

The walk back to get that rail, made him feel a bit frustrated,

A long weekend ahead it was, and the crowd did multiply,

He felt, how long would he let the job kill him like this

And this led him to again observe the things around him,

Looking around and guessing every one’s story,

He soon started to realise,

His life was far better than those whose life was filled with lies,

His heart, though broken, still had hope.

He could do better in life for he had so much more of strength and source that some did lack.

All he had to do was take that leap of faith,

But, he never did, for he lived in his comfort zone,

All this time, he just wanted to play it safe,

Forgetting his dreams to be free from things around him,

Yet giving his life a meaning!

All he wanted in life was to inspire someone,

So, he went back to his base,

And picked up his weapon that defined him truly,

He cleared the dust of the constant pressure of the society,

And started to write,

The feeling of purity started to flow back to him,

He wrote something of that sort after a while,

While writing, his eyes did fill, while he had a small smile,

For he knew, this is something people would like.

And he did not stop that night,

He went on for hours,

Until he finished his piece

That eventually gave his heart some peace!

All it took, was just another bad day,

And some stories to get him back on his way.

 

An unfulfilling circle, life is. We run and run and run only to eventually return at same spot we started, while expecting things to change.

It is often at such stages of life, people tend to forgo their happiness for the sake of things that matter for only some time, but I feel, life would be way better, if they did stick to what they love doing.

Hoping people realise the need of art. Let me know your thoughts on this and share it. On a side note, really grateful for the love I’ve recieved this year, with only a limited number of posts, I have recieved the highest number of views this year, and I appreciate this! Thank you.

I will be back with another great post, until then, #LIVEyOURLIFE !

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!

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.

GRATITUDE- The only thing that matters

“Develop an attitude of gratitude, and give thanks for everything that happens to you, knowing that every step forward is a step toward achieving something bigger and better than your current situation.”
~Brain Tracy
 monday-quotes-gratitude-quotes-3

Hello everyone, I hope everyone is doing fantastic.

Gratitude! When was the last time you ever said a thank you to anyone? Probably, just now or even months back or you might not remember. The reason I’m asking this question is because many have confused the term ‘gratitude’ to just saying the word ‘Thanks’ or ‘Thank you’, but that is not gratitude. Gratitude refers to the state of being thankful, when you are really grateful to any person, sometimes even the words ‘thank you’ would seem very small. It is not enough that you say the words thank you, you must feel it!

Sometimes, you might not want to show gratitude, at that time too, I encourage you to at least thank the person, because you might not know what that person has been going through in his life. A small ‘thank you’ might make them happier than you can imagine.

Gratitude is actually helpful for you. Here are few scientifically proven facts of Gratitude
1.Gratitude opens the door to more relationships.

2. Gratitude improves physical and psychological health.

3. Gratitude enhances empathy and reduces aggression.

4.Grateful people sleep better.

5.Gratitude improves self-esteem.

6.Gratitude increases mental strength.

It is stated in The Secret, “Gratitude is a powerful process for shifting your energy and bringing more of what you want into your life. Be grateful for what you already have and you will attract more good things.”

So, if you are selfish, be grateful for yourself, if you are selfless, be grateful for others. ‘Gratitude’ is the only thing that matters.

“Gratitude is the sign of noble souls.”
~Aesop

“When you are grateful, you are just thanking for everything you have, and the more you are thankful for something, you’ll end up attracting more of it!”

Crazy, isn’t it?

Complaining is just opposite of gratefulness;

“When you complain, you forget to be aware of all the blessings you have already been receiving..”

“‘Thank you’ is the best prayer that anyone could say. I say that one a lot. Thank you expresses extreme gratitude, humility, understanding.”
~Alice Walker
I would love to tell you more about gratitude, but sometimes amazing things come in small packages, don’t they?
So, I’ll be back with another amazing post, until then, as I always say, just LIVE yOUR LIFE! 🙂
