Hope

I went upstairs and looked at the moon,
wondering if you are looking at it too,
I asked old moon to deliver a message,
that I live each day waiting for you,

Right things comes at the right time,
the moon is patient and so am I,
and when the stars finally align,
I know we will meet eye to eye,

Make love to me with a touch of grace,
hold me tight and caress my face,
but until that day we are together,
I ask the moon to keep you safe.

I aspire to be happy

I had a friend who when entered the room made all of us smile. She was the definition of happy.
In a world full of pseudo sophistication, it was incredibly fresh to see someone so happy and candid.
She was contagious. She didn’t have the perfect set of teeth. Yet, she was so serene, that all of my problems faded when I looked at her.
From that day onwards my aim in life has become to be incredibly happy, like her.

Them.

They made fun of me. My accent, my sharp nose, my facial hair, and even my mother.

They made fun of me because I was more fluent in my mother tongue than English.

I can still hear their laughter.

I can vividly remember them mocking me when I asked something.

But everything changed one day when I put on my crown.

The day I knew my worth. The day their laughter changed to some unrhythmic noise.

I am not a victim. I am a symbol of perseverance.

I have become more than them but I don’t laugh at them. I pity them.

A letter to my love.

Dear Love,

It is ok that you picked her over me. Who wouldn’t pick a rose over a wildflower?

A rose is beautiful. Poets, philosopher and lovers are hooked over its magnificence. Even gods stare at it. The scent is celebrated and the color is worshiped.

But darling despite the beauty, you crush the rose when you pluck it. A rose hurts you with her thorns. Rose is vulnerable. Rose is dependent. Rose craves attention. Rose craves love. It is withered by storms and the wind carries it away unlike the ungroomed wildflower.

The messy wildflower stands still. Patient, strong and unwithered .It blossoms, spreads and grows without any attention. No man can crush it, and it will hurt no man. A wildflower is undemanding, independent and unbothered.

But I get it you picked her over me. Who wouldn’t pick a rose over a wildflower?

Yours,

Wildflower.

Cheers
