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

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 !

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!

Death is inevitable


Why are we so afraid to die?
While, truly, the whole concept of reality is a lie.
It’d be a simple task to run away,
And it seriously takes huge courage to stay.
Yes, sometimes, life may seem to be dead,
And we fail to realise there’s still an unconquered path ahead.
Sometimes, failure breaks our heart into pieces,
But one who sits idly and mourns over it is the one who actually losses.
Crawl. Walk. Run. Fly. Fall.
Make mistakes, and stand tall.
People may stalk, talk and may also laugh,
Just let them be!
Because, there’s more to you than just being a gossip queen.
That haven’t seen the hell we were raised in,
They won’t realise the pain that we have survived in.
A dead life may seem a better option than hell most of the time,
But well, why not love and serve and get the heaven we truly deserve.
Death ain’t a thing to be scared of,
Like life, it’s a step into a new era,
Not yet discovered and not yet seen.
Maybe that’s why we find death terrifying.
The time we get in between life and death is minimal and equal to most of them,
So, why not do something great and remain a legend,
Instead of being a mystery in the unsearched and unrecorded history.
Death is inevitable, so don’t frighten,
Just live your life and spread peace, because in reality life is beyond what we can imagine. 

Words mend life

“I’ll be there for you till the end.” A promise that brought him back to life.

IMG_20171217_230336_534

Words, simple they seem, but dangerous they are;
It can break a man’s heart, but can also take him far.
Life haunted him everyday,
Death wanted him in every way.

Choice, remained a myth to him,
And his entire life started to dim.
Never had he thought, he would end up like this,
Broken and soulless, like death giving him a kiss.

In the morning, with every sip of coffee
He would feel, people around him were zombies.
Before hitting the bed, every night,
To live or to die, he had to decide.

He wasn’t always like this,
It all started with small things.
Fights, ignorance and rejections,
Leading to bigger ones like death and demotions.

He thought, he had lost it all,
No ear was open for all this to be heard.
He decided to give up, but then he turned back
And was it a coincidence that he did?

No, life has a plan and there was one for him too,
He saw her and he saw his life calling him too,
And the following words were enough to make his heart melt,
“I’ll be there for you till the end.”

Life may be difficult, but don’t make it short. You’ll face challenges you are not ready for, but that doesn’t make you weak. It makes you stronger.

Will be back with another amazing post, until then, LIVE yOUR LIFE and LIFT others HIGHER.

Them or us – Why not both?

Poverty, corruption, and terrorism

Surrounding us, while we live in a slum.

Rules, laws, and regulations

Guarding us, while the powerful have fun.

Dreams are crushed,

Mascaras are smudged,

All we hear is sorry,

And everyone moves on.

Hunger, diseases and deaths,

Pity, only a human faces this, else some action is taken.

All we see, scams and schemes,

Forever, making us run.

One plus one is two,

Unity is strength, we understood all that in grade two,

You still don’t get this,

What is wrong with you?

Gave you all the resources,
Trusted you with all our scars

Finally someone to heal them,

Well, the joke’s on us, since all we got was loss.

You promised us things,

You promised us hope,

Why do you do this?

Why do you fake things like this?

Stop blaming others

And give us what we need.

We didn’t deserve the pain you gave

And certainly didn’t need the plans you made.

Happiness and peace is what we need now,

Please stop running,

Life is a marathon.

Why keep the frown!

Killing, hating, stealing, and raping,

We are humans, so please stop this

Desperation and expectations

Disappointing they may be, but worth the wait they are.

All we dream is of a better world,

Where all have basic needs

All are at peace

And we smile knowing life is beyond everything what we think.

All this is possible only when we come together,

Please remember, we have the power.

To change and make this world better 

Forever and ever!

With many problems happening around the world, it actually pains my heart to know only few dare or even care to speak about it.

Stop blaming everyone, and start doing something yourself about it first. People may follow you later on.

Truly, life is beyond what we think. So please, stop spreading hate and start loving.

Let me know what you think of it. I’ll be back with another amazing post, until then #LIVEyOURLIFE!
