letting go…

I forgive you…..

For all the instances you let me down

For all  the times you weren’t around

For all the paths I walked alone

For all the battles I fought alone

For all the things you did me wrong

For all the pains I carried along

For all the days I longed for you

For all the nights when I was blue

For all the words that were said

For all the tears that I shed

For all the reasons that we fought

For all the blames that I got

For all the apologies that I made

For all the times you betrayed

All those moments that were lost

 And wasted like a melting frost

Are running down my cheeks now

And for one last time, I allow

You to make me feel this way

 

And I forgive you…..

What goes around comes around

You say it’s unfair, that you didn’t deserve it

I know the perfect thing to say, but I won’t say it

A million flashbacks run through my mind

Would you please rewind your memory to the time?

When you thought the world revolved around you

Oh! I’m sorry, you still think so, don’t you?

Things are still the same, there is, but one difference

You have become the joke that you once made at others’ expense

Call me all the names in the world, I couldn’t care less

I have no role whatsoever; you asked fate for this mess

I’m now over with what you did, over with being hurt and bruised and battered

Remember it’s always mind over matter; now I don’t mind and you don’t matter

The face looking at you that you call ugly and full of terror

Is actually karma showing you the mirror 😉

 

the price

A shot of bullet, a merciless stab

And a world comes to an end

All it takes is a cold, stony heart

And that one fateful moment

To sweep away one universe

To destroy everything related

A thoughtless act eradicates a life

That was so thoughtfully created

Was it a right? We’ll never know

That ability to decide for others

But was it right? Definitely no

The tragedy that a lame excuse covers

The price of existence has come down to

Money, religion and the need for avenge

Blame it on the anger, pride or lust

Or simply the sweet smell of revenge!

 

 

The caged bird

Hear my cries,
Set me free….
This cage is not
Where I’m supposed to be

Let me fly
In the open sky,
For I did no crime
To stay here inside

To you,
My chirping may sound sweet
But for me,
It is agony that comes out of my beak

My pleas go unheard,
And my tears unseen,
Yet I carry a soul
That is wise, hopeful and serene

I may be small,
My wings may not be strong
But someday I’ll reach the sky,
‘cos that’s where I belong!!!!

Injustice

Note: I have been reading and hearing a lot about domestic violence, rape and other forms of injustice towards women and children. I know I won’t be able to capture what goes on inside the minds of these people so this is  just a small attempt. I might have got carried away and mixed my emotions in certain places  but this is purely imaginary.

Time heals the physical and mental pain related to a particular event but the long term impact it leaves on the psychological development and self esteem of the one who goes through it, is hard to cure. I just felt the need to write something from a victim’s point of view, so here it goes:

I can see it coming

An unforgivable act of cruelty

As the darkness wraps around me,

As I lose my sanity……

No, stay away….

You have no right,

Too weak for your strength,

Too tired to fight


I’m pushed to the floor

stripped off and bare,

Do you see the anguish I’m in?

Do you even care?

This cannot be happening

Oh…..please no!!!!

This is intolerable

Please let me go…

The cold is unbearable

More so your touch

I can hardly see, hardly breathe

It hurts so much


I’m trapped, I’m violated,

You seem unaware

Lost in your world of ecstasy,

Leaving my mind filled with despair

Treating me like dirt,

You just leave me there and go

Now that you’ve got what you wanted,

Now that you need me no more


Pay me for the life I lost

In those fifteen minutes that you stole

Don’t worry about my body, it’ll be fine

Pay me for what it takes to mend my soul…………
