An Inward Struggle!!

dark night
Senses numb, breathing hard and streite
Each moment, a battle with a demon inside
 Its enormity vast, not shrinking, even slight
Leading to my soul’s perplexity & plight
Confound in its maze, lacking options outright
Lost in its depth, but gaze on height
For a new day I long, for this sun to shine bright
But darkness still murky, lasting long is this night.

I am Enough!!

I remind myself constantly
That learning from mistakes is a rare ability.
.
Have that strength to overcome trials
 Smile in hard times, consider whining a vile.
.
Keep head high when the world’s falling
Miracles of nature, do find their calling.
.
Wonderful beings with power enormous
Laugh and be grateful, even for small stuff.
.
Say: I want to live every moment of life
Without thinking of tomorrow, in present I dive.
.
I am enough and I will be fine
Never let life’s bitterness , shape or define.

A share of Success (A Poem)

Your dreams your wishes
On road, in their quest
When  fell or lost
Neither were helped nor addressed
Struggles, your share of life
Battles and trials, your fate
As world only invests
In victors, winners and Greats
If in past were alone
Now in  heaps of requests
Got any idea? Can you assess?
Everybody wants to share that success
Pay the world in same coin
or its your Karma to smile n suppress
Eye for an eye, is your right
Better to advance, not regress

30th Page (A Poem)

My Life, my story,
Like a play on stage
A book with a tale
Year for me, for you just a page.
The first few ones
Day’s innocent, beautiful age
But time gets hard,
was destined to rage
In teens imagined
Bird trapped in a cage
Who dreams freedom
Feathers all white with a little beige.
Twenties spent, in tests n struggle
Came of age, could measure n gauge
limits and restrictions, its all in ones head
its Liberation Day on my 30th page.

Your Troubles Are Making You Strong (A poem)

One after another
Challenges come, and grab your arm
You ask life, Now whats wrong?
Troubles said: We are making you strong
Living a breezy life
Where no effort tag along
One never realizes what he has
Grasps after struggle short or long
Troubles said: We are making you strong
Remember
When Man helped butterfly in cocoon
Hindered its struggle, made a slit drawn
With swollen body and crippled wings
Would never, but was a destined flown
Troubles said: We were making it strong
Everyone has a talent deeply sown
With no strive, stay hidden and unknown
In weakest moment one become strong
So, cash in  hardships, they bring a new dawn
Troubles said: we will make you strong.
