Never say I give up..!!

Never say I give up ~
when your heart says "try once again"
never say I give up ~
when answers are what you seek
never say I give up ~
when you're at your lowest point
never say I give up ~
when you feel you're collapsing inside!

Times change...

a new day ushers in a fresh breath of hope
answers that remain elusive do unfold
just when the time is ripe for you
from the nadir to the zenith is just a climb
depending on the courage n' perseverance 
within you that keep you going as ONE
to fight from every raging tide n' taciturn!

So, never say I give up ~

for life is a journey n' not a destination
where you learn from every highs n' lows
embrace yourself n' set foot even if alone
n' you shall get what you want
for in the end it all depends on your

Intoxicating Blues..

a poignant precedent reality
that had left its share of scars on me
deterred me and made me more vulnerable
such that I was devastated in the apocalypse
that shred all the anchors that I held onto!

Within the realm of my present life
I did all that I could to handle the crisis
and there was nothing else that I could do
yet, they continued assaulting my soul
offering me no temporal respite to bounce back
so, this time I responded with a killer silence
as I could take in no more of the pain
the hurt had reached the set thresholds
n' I seemed to have surpassed them all!

Today, I've reached that state of mind
where I have started thinking out aloud
as my heart is ruptured with the ongoing
wishing hard for something or someone
to come n' calm my troubled self, and
drive all the intoxicating blues away..!!

Sunset of her Life

As she walked towards the sunset of her life
her life reeled before her from the time
she had her senses in place, to comprehend
the finer nuances of life n' its mysteries
that regaled her initially n' then amused her
with it's reality that seemed less whimsical
n' more daunting as moments n' years passed by!

Her life that once seemed bright n' colorful
with the radiance of joy n' energy, exuberated
by the innocence of having been a child
followed by the enthusiasm of the youth
but as mid-life seeped in, it usurped em all
with the verve diminishing as the absurdity
of the real life finally seeped within her!

She realised the farceness of the world
she lived in n' the people who surrounded her
her mind, spirit n' soul after years of conflict
had now become ONE after sifting from life
the unreal, surreal, ethereal n' real;
with grace in her heart, she accepted em all, and
elegantly walked towards the sunset of her life!
