Personal Thoughts, Thoughts recollected in Tranquility

Valley of trees

I forgot my soul in the valley of trees

While looking for birds which never

Nested in the same tree

Their colors and their songs enticed me

I misplaced my heart in the beats of their song

I tied my dreams around their feet

They flew high above the sky

The high altitude winds loosened the knots

And took away my dreams towards the south

Their light and mystic feathers captured my heart

And the feathers that fell from the sky

Disappeared among the leaves

Along with my love

My emotions migrated away while

Watching them leave

While I stayed in the same place rooted deep

And that’s how I also turned into a tree

In the valley of trees.

At the crossroad – 2

At the crossroads where

Everything was blurry

I met a stranger

Who’s name I’ve heard of

But haven’t met yet

Who’s voice I’ve neglected several times

But this time it felt more deep and assertive

At the crossroad where

Confusion ruled my mind stronger than ever

Where questions echoed in my mind

What more? what next?

Which turn? Why turn?

My heart felt like

A butterfly inside a jar

In that very hour of unrest

That mellifluous voice

Which I’ve shut out

Hummed in my ears again

Where to turn this time?

I listened to the stranger’s ways

Which felt absurd to me at times

Absurd or not I took the turn

And it changed my life forever and ever

At the crossroads where

Everything was blurry

I met a stranger

Who helped me find my way

That stranger was me!

Presence

After a very long time of living

In the colors of unrest and peace

I finally heard my heart beat

Inside the deep sea of life

I tried to point my finger at the light

But my hands were hard and shaky

As I looked, at the magic

Of the shadows in the wall

As the moving wind teased

With the sun’s light

Making them dance on the floor

And on my face as well

I felt the breath in my nose,

the warmth in my hands

And realized they were real

For the very first time.

For the very first time

I felt the presence of me in me

After these long hard life

Years living in this planet

Now do I realize that I am alive.

Oppressed Voices

The music of your breath

Feels boisterous to my ears now

For they are tormenting me

Day by day, echoing

Incessantly in my ears . . . .

The rhyme that once

Feasted my eyes is now

Making them water in ice and blue

The startling paradoxes

Stare at me with a smirk in it’s face

The striking similes

Questions my sanity

Lost I am in the morals of your parables

They rain heavy in my conscience

Feeding my inner conflict

Suppressing my ideals and faith

Replacing my palaces of hope

With your own answers and robbing

Me of my mistakes, findings, learnings and reasoning

The music of your breath

Feels boisterous to my ears now

For they sing my verse

Which was not written by me!

Hope

I hope to wander the world

Wander around the sky

Explore the corners of the world

Take a dip in the deep blue ocean

And be lost among the tides

Drink from an underground fountain

Meet a stranger sheep and

Strike a conversation with her

I want to be a wanderer

That’s all I dream of

But people say I can’t

It’s because I’m a girl they say

But still I dream of

All the seven wonders of the world

Before I sleep at night everyday

So if I can dream with my eyes closed

Then why can’t I see them with my eyes open

I have faith in my hope.

Who is she?

I was Ten when darkness caught me

Even those four walls were blind to me

They did so many things, I yelled in pain

Half the time I wasn’t even awake

But my soul yelled even then

I didn’t know what they did or why

They did that and my tears we’re neglected

This continued for days and months

I lost count after that,

Days and months passed by but

I couldn’t care less and slowly I gave in

I felt mechanical at times,

The rest of the time I felt dead

Then all of a sudden I was granted light

It felt different, being dumped in a graveyard

But still I felt happy, free at last I think

Then I felt some immense pain inside me

More pain than what they gave me

During all these months combined

I fell down, screamed and yelled for help for hours

Then it stopped , I was drenched in blood

Suddenly I heard a cry other than mine

It was a baby I wondered how it came there all of a sudden

But It was connected to me through a chord

She looks like me

I think she’s my sister

Is she?

Boat People

The violent waves in the sea was

More calm that what happened in the land

We started off this journey with

Five in the boat but now

Only I remain, but should I care.

I asked mommy why did we leave

Why the exodus?

She said something about religion

I didn’t understand

She said something about a refugee

I didn’t know who that was

She said something about not belonging

I didn’t know why

I just know this…….. I, Pappa, Mamma,

My two sisters and brothers set out

On a journey to nowhere and said

It was for safety but now

Only I remain and the sea took the rest

Now I wonder what Mamma was talking about

Was it about me? Us?

Why did we have to leave

She said we were different

But I have legs, eyes, hands and ears

Just like the rest

Now I just pray to the Lord

The Lord who made us,

Who shares with us even his own home heaven

But they humans are so selfish that

They can’t even share piece of land

Hence we sail the ocean

In search of acceptance

Because we are cast out for they are scared of us

Scared that we might take over

Absurd it is

Oh Lord help them.
