AN UNENDING ROAD

Just figured ahead of me is , as I continuously walk,

I walk, run, fall, crawl to find a way,

A way out of this maze.

DEAR WOMEN

My dear women,

Stop grappling for everything,

From morning to evening.

 

My dear women,

Learn to speak,

Cause either they will think you are so weak.

 

My dear women,

You are beautiful on your own way,

You don’t have to change for their mind’s play.

 

My dear women,

Stop whimpering and  hiding your face under pillow,

You have the right to glow.

 

If she is wearing short,

She is a whore.

If she is free and frank,

She is sllaber frow .

 

She has given up her dreams,

Only cause of you are so important as firm.

She changed her avenue,

Cause now she learnt  to be complacent with you.

 

Carrying  smile on her face,

Serving food to washing clothes.

Cleaning house to looking after menage’s,

She does everything .

 

Taking as its her duties and she has to clinch.

She is trying to looking elegant,

Just because of trying to getting attention from them.

 

No woes,

Ahhh, actually she expunges,

What is it ?

She dealt up with it,

And forged another connotation for it.

 

In last its not enough for all,

Flinging her dreams,

Taking him as her firm.

 

No breaks, doing duties as hireling,

Instead, she is also the member of that dwelling.

 

My dear women,

Please stop holding those things,

Which are not meant for your livings.

 

You are not a scullery maid,

You are the mistress with your own privilege.

EQUALITY OVER EVERYTHING ELSE

I’m still in a quandary wondering that is this the modern world we are living in! When will the society be free from the shackles of patriarchy, misogyny, sexism and feminism, is still a question!

EVERYONE DYING TO BE THEMSELVES, SOMETIMES LOVED AND SOMETIMES HATED

You want to leave it, but it doesn’t leave you,

The memories of life, sometimes tend to deceive you.

When the casting of life’s characters seems to be well in control,

Suddenly you realise, there’s nothing that you can ever, continue to hold.

DO YOU TOO LIKE TO GET LOST IN UTOPIA?

Do you too like to get lost in utopia?

A world that you enter,

When you are half asleep.

Helplessly sleepy, dizzy and confused.

Unsure of reality. Happily submerging.

Far away from the tactical reality,

Innocently introspecting your feelings.

The mind, unwillingly surrendering.

The heart, gracefully taking control.

A world of that is either black or white,

And not a combination of both.

MY OWN VERSION OF UTOPIA

He asked me to wait,

And to hold trust on unpredictable fate.

He assured me that,

He will find me before apocalypse.

I BROKE UP WITH MY BEST FRIEND

You know last year I broke up with my best friend.

Yes it was an uninvited disaster to my life.

But still today when I think about the scenario it leaves me with numb eyes.

ONE SIDED LOVE

One sided crush? One sided love?

Whatever! It’s just like a fine wine!

It’s the most powerful thing!

One sided love is never gonna work.

It’s just like the failing of Newton’s third law!

Or maybe you spend your whole life pretending it will work out one day!

You are not mine, but I have been loyal in this relationship.

Feeling the pain of losing someone who is not even yours!

It’s just like not hoping for a reply for the message sent.

I don’t know whether it’s making me or breaking me.

But baby! My love has no boundaries.

My one sided love, too, *is a fine wine*. It will always age with time.

Baby! You will be always loved and cared for.

Words are not enough,

As I love you more than I show.

Onset for us was a little tough,

But now I love you more than you know.

I want to be the vine that entwines you till eternity,

Hugging you, seeking your eternal strength to build mine.

To kiss you at every inch of your existence,

Also budding myself into  blossoms with all that love.
