Black

This is an inspiring ballad about a city of darkness where there is no happiness. The city marks one of the darkest times of our life, time when everything feels weak and we have no more strengths to move on..

I was lost in unknown land

A place I’d never been

The nameless place of darkness

Where evils ruled within


I could find people like me

Who were depressed and wept in sorrow

They said life has betrayed them

And got all happiness swallowed


Some people lived in this land

Others named the city “Black”

They said it is negative place

Where happiness simply lacks


It’s filled with scars and pain

The pain inevitable and inexplicable

But some angels told me with grace

That scars are always notable


“Black” may feel like hell

The place hated by all

Like drowning in deepest oceans

But was pathway to heaven afterall


The gateway may not be so pleasing

You may turn away from the road

But travelling across the city is meant

For legends who choose to soar


It is an exploration

Finding our inner strengths

Cause you don’t know how strong you are

Until it’s the only option left


When you find yourself in this city

When you feel lost in oblivion

Remember it’s city of dark

To help you make your own mark


Get up. Stand up and fight!

Work harder to travel across

In the other end of the city

People with strongest scars are born


So child realise the truth

We are given this life to live

To suffer pain and soar across

Cause we are strong enough to live


Find the shine within you

Cause you are lighthouse in the dark

And only in darkest skies you’ll find

The shine of brightest stars! ✨

Changes

A short ballad on creating a positive attitude and coping up with changes…

The time when everything is normal

The moment which is quite familiar and expected

The hour pre – planned perfectly in mind

Those known moments are always respected


Our brains have already made us visualize

Some specific moments of our future

Since hours they are anticipated and precise

The ones which we begin to nurture


But later when you come to know

About the changes which emerges from aught

And your mind goes blank with naught

You recall normal days for which you fought


But dear, life gives you another chance to learn

To learn from that special war

To cope with the changes, it wants to teach

To turn pain into power every hour


We all are adaptable to changes

And have thousands of them throughout our life

Some cope up with them quickly

Others are equally respected for their time


This coping strength depends on

The way we welcome the change

Don’t panic, it’s just a part of life

Like winter, summers and rains


A new day with new resolutions

New imaginations and new goals

Try to build positive temptations

For trying new games and roles


Let this beautiful start begin

Let change change our lifestyle

Just welcome them with grace

And love life until you exile

Escaped

A short ballad on escaping the materialistic life for a while and enjoying the sense of living, the sense of being alive…

Far away from the city

Away from the chaos

Away from busy streets

And hectic life which goes


Away from my friends

From social links and goals

Away from street lights

Which when dark brightly glows


Away from home

Away from family

Away from comfort

Away from galleries


Of memories and moments

She had in past life

Of victories and defeats

Her heart carries inside


But, with the nature

With silence and peace

With the potent which

Revives and grease


Her flaws and faults

Freeing her from the sins

Taking away her soul

To nurture and rinse


With a strange emptiness inside

Lost many things but not everything

A wish to hold that experience awhile

To break time bounds for this meeting


With the sense of being oneself

Sense of being alive

Living that very moment

For herself without ego and pride


With this alive feeling of being

She has escaped materialistic life

Until death she longs to be here

And continue her heavenly plight…

Seeded Wishes

A short ballad on working hard for our dreams & wishes to see them come true. They just won’t come alive without efforts. Work now and you will reap someday. 

Millions of wishes of thousands of people

The things which you would like to do

That enthusiasm disappears like water ripples

That moment when we realise they won’t come true


You may want to travel different places with friends

You may wish to go for a holiday tour

You may wish to gift your dear, a perfect present

Would have imagined your seed before it grows


Those wishes remain like awaited seed

Seeds so still and stable inside you

Making it cozy home in your heart

Hoping. by your actions, to soon be heard


In stable silent calmness they lie

With hopes alive impossible to die

All dreaming to become a plant one day

To spread colours instead of staying grey


Your wishes won’t come true this way

If you just ‘wish’ and leave them in dismay

Getting edgy when they don’t fulfil

To be honest, the way lies in your will


“Work hard in silence and let the success be your noise”

You may have heard this from your inner voice

“No pain. No gain” is what they say

Work for your dreams don’t leave them void


Start working now! Don’t procrastinate

To live your dreams work every date

Prove you’re strong to fruit-fil your wishes

“Live life to express, not to impress!”


Get your plans organised and goals precise

Give your seeds enough nutrients to rise

Learn how to rest when you are tired

Cause quitting here will just be a satire!

Wiping Away My Pain

This took quite less time but completed perfectly. I hope you enjoy it.

 

I am just a human being here

Who’s completely lost, sheddin’ tears

Would you like to hear my story

Of all my fights, my struggles and lost glory?


I walked through a lot of pain

Struggled every day and night for gain

Now I see what I got is nothing

Every second of pain was just in vain


Why did all this happen?

What else does life wants me to do!

And now I am so broken

Oh pain! I am sitting beside you


I have failed and everything went waste

Monachopsis is what surrounds me

My fight epoch constantly stares

And phosphenes are just what I see


I feel I’m in the middle of an ocean every day

I feel I’m in the middle of a desert every night

There is no peace and comfort in sight

I need hope to lead me from wrong to right


This fight! Oh I fought with all my might

To be honest my mind wasn’t alright

It always thought about the pain inspite

Of me trying to control and guide


Yes it all happens inside your head

What the head thinks that’s gonna be instead

Of what you want and trying to see

Believe me, this way you’ll never be free


Your mind controls a lot everyday

Works throughout the day, thinking about pain

Give it a break don’t let much strain

Let the birds sing and call the rains


So stand up! lets get out of this

Stuck in the oceans and desert beneath

We make us, we save us

We fight us, we find us


Put that old brain to trash

Who has negativity with no flash

Who is completely dark inside

Taking you away from your plight


We live our own lives

We don’t need those empty policies

And we’ve got no apologies

For being who we are today


So say hey! And get your brain

a nice sweet holiday to change

Don’t be mistaken, it’s completely yours

Be original to live those cures


With this change now start a new game

Lend blind eyes to money and fame

Let your heart speak and do the same

In one life live all your dreams…

Hell vs Life

Finally! After a long time I have written this. Last some months were a bit busy… Here’s an inspiring long ballad. Enjoy reading!

 

Everyday feels like kinda same

Nothing so great to rejuvenate

Everything I do feels like insane

Like doing for someone else’s sake


I want to get a time machine

And go back to those lovely days

Where all was so right as nature

Those memories I got to embrace


But then suddenly everything changed

Felt like I am dying Inside

Felt like someone is suffocating me

Till extent and living in pride


I guess the hell is better

At least you know all is gonna be wrong

At least you prepare yourself

To fight and be a bit strong


Here life threatens with spears

Knives and spikes on throat

Then disappears like a nightmare

Leaving you weak and alone


It gives you most painful scars

Scars almost unbearable

But you do fight them, don’t know why

And continue a meaningless life


These were my thoughts before

Before this day, my friend

Before, when everything was wrong in life

Before, when I was suffering in pain


Last evening while returning home

There was something I sensed

I wish I had sensed it before

Cause there were new thoughts commenced


I could see phosphenes from my eyes

Waking from intense dream

That was an epiphany to my life

That surrounded me with serene


Life threatens is a sagacious truth

But it does gives amazing moments

It threatens to make you stronger

Providing a lear with every pain


It teaches us something new

Something never experienced

Something which you’ve never learned

It persuades you to be persistent


My friend, life is an adventure

To quench our thrills and joy

To savour its every flavour

Give up thoughts which annoy


Enjoy the every struggle

Feel that every pain

Grasp that every lear

I assure, it isn’t in vain


You’re given this life cause

You’re strong enough to live it

Every heart is strong enough

To neglect and forget how to QUIT!

*****

Love the Way You Live! 

I had today a bit free with less daily goals, so decided to write something. Hope you like this ballad. 

 

We live our life in our own way

Dancing in the rain or snacks by the bay

Working through day and rest at night

And every life with a different plight


Thousands of people, thousands of plight

Waking every morning through a new light

Some do reckon and get obsessed

And some get times to feel depressed


Okay I agree times are hard

But you can find happiness everyday

In some small instances in your life

Which you never see in your pain


Bad day becomes because of bad thoughts

Not because of a bad experience

It’s your mind that keeps thinking bout’ it

And this is what makes the difference


Everyday is a new opportunity

To create and learn something

To embrace your faults and skills

And experience new thrills


Shakespeare quotes “World’s a stage

And men and women merely players”

We play our part and go away

And disappear in sunlight glares


We have got only one chance to live

Let’s live the way we want

Love the way we live our lives

And ignore the things which haunt!

New Beginnings

It took me some time to write this. I had a bit busy days. Some last couple of months were a bit depressing, had some sad stuffs in mind. So I wrote this as clear as the title, new beginnings. 

 


After all the deadly wars

When time has healed our scars

With one little hope of light

And a try to forget our frights


A small heart with a brontide

Enough to overcome any tide

Comes out of ash and dust

From dark incinerated past


This exquisite process starts

With a deep desire for change

We emerge from our wabbits 

And feel something strange


Awaking from dark sweven

We find our lost querencia

Which lend us a seed of hope

With our minds lost in eunoia


And those thoughts, so intense

Far deeper than ravines

The thoughts which help us start

New life by changing time


Child life is sometimes dark

But light is never dead

Have quoted this before

At times have heard and said


But we realized it today

That it really does make sense

So lets held ourselves a bouquet

For having great strengths


Cause moving on isn’t easy

But it’s most beautiful step

As it takes us far away

From the past where we existed…

*****

Embrace the Imperfection 

We all have some imperfections. Asking me? Yep I have many. Lets just embrace them and think about the brighter side. After all we’ve got just one life to live…

“Embrace the glorious mess you are… beautifully imperfect!”

Life’s a game and times are hard

There will be times when you feel apart

A game with lots of woven traps

Traps which will break you right to cracks


It isn’t new if I say to stay strong

To embrace the right and oppose the wrong

Not to be afraid to stand alone

Leave those who want to get you gone


Said and heard this million times

Ever felt like these are just rhymes?

Easy to read but hard to stay

These cobwebs and woven traps in way


Its okay if you feel heavy

Mental strength differs in everyone

Not your fault in such situation

Just be YOU, don’t long perfection


Embrace the glorious mess you are

Quit the perfect – imperfect war

Adorn yourself with serenity

Go, get peace with your emacity


We all have our own colours

These colours reflect our talent

Be proud to have a unique one

As together we make iridescent!

*****

The Dark Shade…

An inspiring ballad on death of the loved ones. To stay strong. After all, life’s a cocktail and we should savor every flavour 🙂

 

When everything goes right

Something’s ready to give you frights

They just wait for a moment

To end your happiness in sight


It comes like a wrecking ball

Faster than the speed of light

Goes away giving you

Emptiness and cold blood inside


When this all happened

I was sitting on my bed

It was four in the morning

Working with math trying best


I got a message in my android

That let me devoid

Gave me frights and shrills

And cold blood stood chill


I dropped my pen that moment

Got feelings cold and low

Immediately felt so sick

That moment went without a glow


Completely filled in darkness

Saw out of the window

Felt like just a crack

In this castle of glass


And there was an owl who

Seemed like consoling me

Telling a truth of life

Time + cracks are heals


“Adopt the pace of nature

Her secret is patience”

Throw out your pain

In form of tears or screams


I promise after that

You’ll feel relaxed and calm

Just need to sit in silence

And believe for no more harm


“We learn what doesn’t kills us

And makes us more stronger”

To be audacious and stand

The waves of frights more longer


Human heartbeats have proved

That life is never steady

There are ups and downs

Straight line means dead and empty


So be strong in this play

And let it continue today

Have courage to face your fears

And enjoy a bit by the bay!
