I would love to

A message from one to another. 

 

 

And when this all will be over,

Would you take a walk with me?

We shall revisit our favourite places,

Drink lots and lots of coffee.

Crib about calorie intake

while eating a 3 course meal

and share that pudding cake,

Your presence makes me heal.

Talk about our days

and laugh at our old mistakes.

Convey so much without saying,

Let our eyes do the talking.

You pick me up and I shall drop you later,

Hours pass while we discuss silly matters.

And then when this all will be over,

Would you take a walk with me?

I know I would want to

Because I Love You.

 

 

I was Me

Every time the dusk got delayed,

Or the morning sun felt harsh,

Sound of life seemed disarrayed,

Or water disappeared in the marsh,

Loved ones took a separate turn,

Old enemies met at the crossroads,

Water started to burn,

And decrypted were all my codes,

I came to this place I now call home.

 

There is always a place for me,

Here I am always allowed to be,

The person you see every now and then.

I cannot tell you how but,

The Poet and the Pen (my blog) saved me.

I was always Me.

 

Blogging has this beautiful thing in it. It makes you feel so special, so connected to yourself. Sometimes I find out so much about so many things when I sit behind this blog and dive into the World of Words.

Blogging is a good addiction and I am addicted.

Together!

Just a few more days!

 

 

Never before have we faced this,

A pandemic that stunted all of us together.

Every one of us should note this,

We will go down in history together.

Men, Women, Children, I ask you all

Let us go down as victors.

Let us become that generation

Which the future will call healers.

 

Let us hide our pain behind a mask,

Let us clean our hands before we meet,

Let 6 feets of distance prevail in each task,

Let us reduce walking on the street.

Let us ensure proper hygiene,

Let us make sure to help the needy,

Let us keep every inch of our house clean,

Let us just be ready.

 

And soon one day we will walk,

Walk without a mask

Walk without any fear

Hug every friend

Hold every dear.

Eat without being scared

Work without any boundaries

Go on trips which we had planned

Make a fresh set of memories.

चलूँगा में तेरे साथ,

 

चलूँगा में तेरे साथ,
आज तू अकेला नहीं, में भी हूँ.
दर मत, डरने की नहीं है कोई बात,
बीत जायेगा यह भी, जैसे हर रात.

चलूँगा में तेरे साथ,
क्युकी मंज़िल मेरी भी वही है.
यहाँ वह जीते है जिनमें होते है जज़्बात,
सिर्फ तू जानता है की तू सही है.

चलूँगा में तेरे साथ,
और देखूंगा तुझे जीतते हुए.
कहने दे जिससे जो कहना है,
बॉस कुछ वक्त तो बिताने दे.

चलूँगा में तेरे साथ,
और खुद भी अपनी मंज़िल ढूढ़ लूंगा.
यह सब फ़िज़ूल लगेगा तब,
जब में खुद से खुद को जीत लूंगा.

 

 

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.

मन से

If you have even one friend, true friend in your life, then I reckon you are one of the lucky ones.

To friendship, the spirit of friendship.

Share with your friends and let them know their value in your life.

 

आओ आज का दिन ख़त्म करते है,
ख़त्म करने से पहले कुछ बाते करते है,
पूरे दिन के किस्से सुनते है,
दोस्तों के संघ अपने टूटे हिस्से ढूढ़ते है,

अपनी कहानी कहते और सुनते है,
शोर के बाजार में सुकून चुनते है,
कुछ देर ही सही पर यारो में हम,
आओ अपना बचपन जी लेते है.

मतलब की इस दुनिया में दोस्त क्यों मिलते है?
न जाने क्यों पर यही सही लगते है,
सबकी राह अलग है सबकी चाह अलग है,
फिर भी हम एक दूसरे से कुछ समय तक जुड़े रहते है.

यादे बोहत है अगर सोचा जाये,
पर याद तोह वही आती है जहा दोस्तों का ज़िक्र आये,
सीखते सीखते लड़ते गिरते,
हस्ते हसाते यह है कुछ अनकहे रिश्ते.

रोने पे सँभालते है और फिर खुद ही हँसके रुलाते है,
दर लगने पे खुद दौड़े चले आते है,
न जाने क्या है इस दोस्ती की सचाई,
कई कवियों ने लिखा फिर भी दोस्ती समझ न आयी.

उम्र की पाबन्दी नहीं, जात का पता नहीं,
भाषा का अंकुश नहीं, दोस्ती की आवाज़ नहीं.
यह वह एहसास है जो किस्मत से मिलता है,
दोस्त किस्मत वालो को ही मिलता है.

आओ आज का दिन खत्म करे,
चलो कुछ देर अपने दोस्तों से बाते करे.

2 hours tale

On a small flight of about 2 hours,

I realised one simple silly fact.

This seemingly social society of ours,

Behaves such when there is nothing to distract.

A 2 hours tale…

So I sat next to this seemingly ordinary person,

Whose name is not important to this tale.

The flight took off as we acted to our version,

Unknown of the things that were about to unveil.

It took us a while to settle down and adjust,

There were no books, tv shows, or movies to trust,

Eventually the protocol came into effect,

Awkwardly two strangers decided a conversation is a must.

With no fear of coming across as boring,

No expectations or the necessity to impress,

We talked freely and kept on exploring,

And soon realised that both her and I were a mess.

Funnily we kept on talking for the entire duration,

Two travel freaks who wanted to travel cross nation,

And later as we deboarded at our destination,

It hit me. Chatting is nice but nicer is a good conversation.

Post flight

Stop chatting and start conversing.

 

A conversation

I seek a conversation with me,

But I rarely can manage time.

So I asked, when will I be free?,

Some time during the rhyme.

Amidst all the hustle and bustle,

I found time for everything else,

Life presents opportunities only after tussle,

Opportunities encoded in the book we write for ourselves.

So take a walk and talk during the walk,

For at times you need to hear it from yourself.

Each solution that I need,

Is right next to me round the clock.

Bicycle story

Some memories from the old shelves,

Came across as I was passing by.

Without any effort there was a smile,

As for a moment past and I were ally.

On one side is me, rushing from goal to goal,

While on the other was I, running freely as a whole.

On one side is me, with clean and ironed shirt,

While on the other was I, a knight who couldn’t be hurt.

On one side is me, cruising in my car,

While on the other was I, peddling my bicycle to the stars.

For a moment I became me,

For in that moment I was free,

Amazing is that kid we all see,

Bicycle stories are for us to flee.

I and me, The Poet and the Pen
