चल बता वह कौनसी बात है,
जिसका तुझे आज भी एहसास है.
हसी के पीछे कुछ तो है,
दोस्त हु तेरा, इसीलिए मुझे आभास है.

चाल में तेरे आज भी वही रफ़्तार है,
बातो में तेरे आज भी वही ठहराव है,
दिखने में तू आज भी है वैसा,
पर आँखों तेरी कुछ उदास है.

तू सुनता है पर कहता कुछ नहीं,
हसाता है पर खुद हस्ता नहीं,
संभालता है पर खुद सम्भला नहीं,
दोस्त, यह बात तो सही नहीं.

मानता हु तू तकलीफ में है,
छुपाना तू अब सीख गया है.
अगर आज नहीं आया तो कब काम आऊंगा,
दोस्त हु तेरा, शायद तू भूल गया है.

A Message

Today I am using one of the strongest tools available to mankind, Social Media to send a message to the entire world, “Together”.

No matter who you are and where you are from, I want to say that we are all Together. They say tough times reveal a man’s true character, well today the whole world is facing a tough situation and to tackle it we must reveal our best selves.

Let’s not spread blames, hatred, rumours or Covid-19. Let’s spread courage, strength, love and care. My reach is limited for I am a nobody, but for the first time ever, I urge each and every reader of mine to share this post and spread this message to all. 

 

Looking around I see stillness,

An unusual silence and absence of life.

Nature which is usually full of forgiveness,

Has assumed the role of a knife.

Times like these don’t require pointing,

The reason or the cause behind the pain.

When a force is hellbent on destroying,

Mandate falls on humanity to be sane.

 

Stop inflicting and incurring wounds,

Do as the learned ask you to.

Help those who need help, for

Nature doesn’t care if borders are true.

Stay strong, persuasive and compassionate,

Being otherwise is of no use.

Whenever times are alarmingly extravagant,

Survival is what unity produce.

 

With lots of Love and well-wishes, I send my prayers and thoughts to the World. Add yours and pass along. Maybe it will give someone the strength he/she needs today.

It’s time someone spoke about the sacrifice and the hard work that the Youth of a city does. Youths of the city, give yourselves a round of applause. You deserve it. 🙂

Don’t let the glimmering lights trick you,

Fancy rides freak you, Lavish sites flick you,

Astounding Amenities rick you.

For the Youth of the City is sick too.

Denounce the false proposition,

“City life is easy and grand”.

If you really need to know the situation,

Just see the Youths of the City as they stand.

Life revolves from Monday to Friday,

With weekends spent detoxing.

Young minds with tired eyes say,

How Citylife can be enforcing.

Youths of the city, cheers to you,

For doing what you do.

Citylife which seems so easy,

Is because you make it true.

~Youth from a City

Little Lucy

A Letter to a loved one. To all those who stay away from their loved ones and miss them desperately at times.

 

 

Hey little one, how are you?

Your brother misses you too.

I hope you have learnt to tie your laces,

And did Father take you to the Zoo?

It’s been a while since I saw your face,

As annoying as you can be, I love our chase.

I wonder if my room is still mine?

Nonetheless, in my heart you will always have your space.

 

Dear Lucy, times are tough.

You might not see me anytime soon.

But you have to do something very important,

My dear Brave Captain, Angel of June.

Keep making everyone smile,

You beautiful kid, I am so proud.

You know, when you laugh I can hear in my heart,

Dear Lucy, when you miss me look at the clouds above.

 

I will hug you soon one day,

Take you to the places where you want to stay.

Buy you all the toys and candies,

And sit quietly and do as you say.

When I get tired I think of you,

You are my inspiration, my strength too,

Until the day you see your big brother,

I want you to read this, “I love you too”.

Detox

#Long_Post_on_Mental_Health_and_well_being (with a Poem, obviously)

Today on a sunny day from the distant land of India, I want to speak to my readers about their mental health. I cannot consult you on your physical health because I am not a doctor of any sorts but what I am is a Human being who understands the importance of communication and words.

So Hi to you sitting in the Western Hemisphere and to you in the region above the equator. Hello to those who are with me on this side of the planet and Howdy to those in the region below, I hope I have covered everyone. I know some of you are going through a phase and that phase is dreadful. But, just like every problem and situation, this too has a solution. DETOX! 

You amazing people, you all need to realise that sometimes the misery is not because of anything that you did but only because your mind wants a break. So, first let me tell you when you should think about Detox… (Read the lines below)

 

When the mind seizes and thoughts go wrong,

Spring freezes and noisy seem the song,

Anxiety increases and nights go long,

Nothing pleases and nothing comes along,

Food seems bitter and unpleasant,

Friends seem disturbance even when they are present,

Even a small appreciation seems like flattery,

And everything just looks dull in its entirety,

It is then when you need to Detox.

 

Now the Question comes, how to Detox?

That’s simple actually. Detox means to do what you love. Like absolutely unconditionally LOVE. It could be reading, writing, painting, dancing, travelling, working out, eating food, cooking, watching movies and the list can go on and on and on.

Pick your hobby/passion and just go with it. Just like you body, give a quiet time to you mind as well.

And one thing we don’t hear enough, In case you need to talk, just share with someone. It helps, trust me.

You can even share them with me over mail in case you feel like opening up or just talking.

So, wishing all my soon to be happy and energized readers a Very Good Day!

Let’s do this!

Fact

Vigilant I am and so are you,

Understatement it would be to say,

We are oblivious of what is true.

Conundrum is we chose to ignore,

For as long as we aren’t directly affected by it too.

True, we have enough on our plates already,

But would it really be too much to not be petty?

Odds are you have taken a stand and are ready,

One good deed can make the other steady.

~ This one is without an audio because, I want you to speak it to yourself and not hear from another.

Keep reading, writing, and helping.

Why to write a Poem?

This Poem is a tutorial on “Why to write a Poem?”. In this Poem, I am going to let go of all that keeps me sane. It’s madness around this place people!!! Let me add some light hearted comedy and madness from my side as well.

Yes, I know that the world is going through a Tough time and I stand with you all. But, yes, BUT in this hour of worry, let me do what I can do… Take your mind off the sadness and concern for a moment and bring smile to your face (at least try to).

Anyway, just forget everything till you reach the last line and read it from a blank perspective.

 

 

Why to write a Poem?

Once I was walking through the Park,

Where I met, Mr. Jolly.

Mr. Jolly was happy because, in the Dark was Mr. Gloomy.

 

But then the Sun decided to shift, 

And reveal the existence of latter. 

My. Jolly’s smile took a drift upon seeing his terminator.

 

Both hated each other,

Each one ending other’s vacation.

Sons of the all mother, they were the balancers of every creation.

 

Ignorant of the novelty they refused to talk,

So I called a Poet to square things even.

In his own way he took them for a walk, rhyming helps to see what we believe in.

 

A Poem looks similar to all,

Yet is taken with different meanings,

Through rhymes we take your call, Poem strikes a balance between feelings.

Unconditional Inability

Learn to appreciate what we have, and learn from what we see. Even from each other.

The Poet and the Pen invites it’s readers for a good Sunday Sustaining good thoughts and wishes. If any of you fellow writers/readers have something you would like to share, the platform is yours. Let’s cherish this! 🙂

 

 

Unconditional Inability

Most powerful beings we say.

Are we though?

We live life on what may,

Thinking that we run the show.

Truth is we are mere characters,

Able to govern what will only perish.

For the rest it’s an Unconditional Inability.

Why change what we can just cherish?

Not everything needs improvement,

For we would be the first ones if so.

Sometimes it’s okay to be an audience…

Take your belongings after the show.
