For those whose passion is writing and those who have been writing since childhood, it is a challenge compiling all their masterpieces together in one place. First we start writing in a book; then some of us make a diary. We, the techno-savvy writers, often start publishing them in papers, magazines or even online. Once I started blogging, my blog has become the storehouse of all my creations. Before that, I often posted my creations on Facebook.
A friend of friend read one of my old poems yesterday and complimented me. I am grateful to you, Akshata, because you indirectly gave me this amazing idea of keeping all my creations together! I had posted three poems to Facebook, I’ll re-post them here in reminiscence- not only to have them here on my blog but also as a mark of gratitude to her for appreciating them in spite of not knowing me in person.
Time for change
Yes, I made a mistake
a mistake that ruined my life!
From being happy, peaceful n pleasant,
it became a life of sorrow and strife!
I was running behind a mirage
in a desert, plain and barren.
I expected the heat of love and warmth
in the coldest land, devoid of affection!
After some time I realized,
I was expecting something out of nothing!
A grave mistake that cost me dearly,
how could I do such a thing?
But now I’ve finally woken up,
from this deep sleep and slumber!
I’ve rubbed my eyes, now i see
no illusions, everything clean and clear!
I regret and lament seeing a dream
too good to be true any day!
It was like running behind my own shadow
which i cannot catch anyway!
Yes, the guilt kills me
but now its time to amend the wrong!
It’s time to rise again, in style
and get up steady and strong!
Time for change, time for action,
a resolve not to repeat the error!
To take lessons from this chapter
and turn out wiser for the better!
No more tensions and problems in life,
no more being lured by enchanting charms….
Now that my vision has become clearer,
I see happiness welcoming me with open arms!!
