Too Much to Handle?

I’m not promising that I’ll be easy to be with.
All I can promise,
Is that I will love you,
Like no other can or ever will.

That you’ll revel in every minute of the fact,
That my hand is the only one clasping yours.

That I’ll be the sturdiest path you’ve ever set foot on,
And with it, I’ll be the silence in the chaos, you struggle to seek.

I’ll be the voice of honesty,
Without caring if you can’t stand my song.
I’ll smother you in affection with attention,
Constantly in public, and at home.

I’ll be a ride so crazy,
You’ll have had your fill of theme parks.
I’ll be the dance of motivation and lazy,
For the battery of your happiness,
I’ll be your permanent recharge.

It’s easy if you really want,
All you have to do is let go.
Of everything and everyone,
That’s done and dusted, years ago.

The mind is a tricky place,
It festers and likes to breed.
My heart is your saving grace,
Don’t be a fool, just heed.

But remember this clearly,
Remember this straight,
I won’t stop living,
Cuz you keep me on wait.

Whenever you’re ready
To behave like man
Despite all my shortcomings
To love me as I am.

Pick up the phone,
The move lays in your hands.
I’ll be everything you’ve prayed for,
With a bonus of good madness, for all your lifes’ plans.

The Bourn Frangipani

One day
I shall have a home
One that I can call my own.
My terms, my rules,
My ways, my moods.

You see this won’t be just another nest,
For this one shall be built on foundations,
That Iโ€™ve gradually laid to rest.

Like the times you fucked me over,
By begging me to believe.
Like the pill I had to swallow,
Everytime I had conceived.

Like the hammer you used to deride and smash,
My spirit, my bones, my smile, my cash.
Like the nurture & care that youย displayed,
By bitching me out and walking away.

Like declaring me to be your only true love,
With a fine 180, a few days later.
Remember the night you suddenly weren’t sure anymore,
After consistently begging, to be my lone ranger.

This home shall be a cloister,
In which I will be healed
I’ll sit in my garden, meditate to forgive,
To forgetting, I shall not yield.

Whatever made me think that I needed you,
When I’ve accomplished all this alone.
Thanks so much to everyone of you,
The fruits of your soul crushing labor, I’ve borne!

Motivation is such a beautiful disease,
Under it’s spell I’ll be,
As I make the life I want for myself,
To smile lovingly at my blooming frangipani tree.

Happy Independance Day India?

Independence from rape,
Independence from gender bias,
Independence from female foeticide,
Independence from farmer suicides,
Independence from acid attacks,
Independence from environmental abuse,
Independence from illiteracy,
Independence from poverty,
Independence from racial hatred & religious bias,
Independence from bad roads & potholes,
Independence from corrupt leaders,
Independence from fearing freedom of speech,
Independence from bribery,
Independence from poaching,
Independence from lies, schemes and scams…

Oh India,

You truly are beautiful, your people have the sweetest smiles, warmest hearts… You have all the riches the world envies, breathtaking nature, heritage, culture, monuments, spirituality, arts, music, awe-inspiring diversity, colours, flavours…

Let us love our nation & give her, her forests, oceans, animals and each other the long overdue respect we deserve…

Lets support and give those who died for our Independence and those that serve us by risking their lives everyday for our safety, our borders, our cities the respect they deserve.

Lets be truly Independent, so we can each proudly say Bharat Mata ki Jai!!!
