It isn’t in the honour or accolades that a writer breathes,
It’s in the inner peace that writing brings,
I write to feel the warmth of the written word,
It’s effect on this cold soul within.

Many years of happiness and pain,
Maketh a writer more supreme,
A writer known for their writing will inturn,
Suffer many more years of happiness and pain.

How different is a writer from a normal soul?
How elite is this crowd that pride?
Aren’t humans a part of the stories we tell?
Aren’t emotions that we shamelessly sell?

Humans above humans, we know not what we think,
It is all for praise for a job well done,
While another human sits to decide, with malice even,
If what I write is in any way worth his while… 


G for Guilt


That’s three in a row! It is perfect for the situation. Guilty as charged on all counts of stupidy that I have done in the name of good parenting.

And also apt because with this GUILT, I end the A to Z series. I am starting something  new on both my blogs from tomorrow.

G for Guilt

I watch you rise,
After every fall,
I watch you smile,
After every lull.


I caused this,
This pain you know,
I don’t regret it,
It was for you to grow.


I could have nodded,
Agreed with you too,
But I am a mother,
I care about you.


Proud of the man you are today,
I look at you without any guilt,
For if I hadn’t let you go, 
How would you do your bit?

F for Flattery


Yeah , I know. This is way too quick. 😀

F for Flattery

You know me well,
I know you too,
You like what I do,
Even if it’s not new.


Every “like” has a meaning,
If the friend has a heart,
It is just not an agreement,
It is indeed a pact.


We write better,
Till topics come in,
Then the source dies,
And a null sets in.


An encouraging comment,
A pat of a “share”,
It is not about flattery,
It is just that we care.

E for Eagerness


It has been really long. I have a lot of excuses to make, but they are pointless now. I just need to be able to express myself here again. For this I have to put an end to the guilt of not being able to participate in the A to Z challenge this year. So  I am going to publish the posts that were ready to publish in that series over the next two days and then move on with my blogging life. What say you?

 E for Eagerness

A boring tale,
Life would be,
If everyday,
Felt the same to me.

A brand new day,
A whole new feeling,
An urge to live,
To give life more meaning.

Those pretty flowers,
Those chirping birds,
The life that blooms
In spite all odds.

Every inspiration,
Has a path to show,
It all depends on,
Our eagerness to grow.

Am I Defensive?


Am I Defensive?

Years of hurt and pain,
Have left their mark in me,
I crave for attention now,
Am I what I meant to be?

Don’t you point a finger,
Don’t you chart a blame,
I am like this for a reason,
I don’t need to explain.

At times I am timid,
At times I am aggressive,
At times I accept a flaw,
At times I get defensive.

World isn’t out to get me,
Yet I find it slightly odd,
People say the darndest things,
And expect me to just nod?

Feeling Betrayed


This emotion is the strongest and the most dangerous of all. The stronger the relationship, the harder and longer the heartache is. But everyone survives it and comes out as a better person and with a better person.

I am not a saint, but world is my temple and love is my God. Shall we continue?

B for Betrayal

I sensed somehow,
A fragrance unknown,
A sparkle in the eye,
A new smile that is born.

You are promised to me,
In heart and soul,
Till death do us apart,
Or so I am told.

There is no love,
When there is doubt,
There is no gain,
When there is no trust.

There is no solace,
Once the mind has strayed,
I fear more than death,
To have to feel so betrayed.
