Here we go… the second last alphabet.. “Y”
Y- Y is it so important!
Yellow is hot, is that all I know with Y I thought!
Yet, as I put myself to this task,
Yakking away, the best I could get to was
Yesteryear, Y had been easy-peazy!
Y- Since when did you become so snoopy!
Yogis have said – the key to success is hidden in the answer to all Ys!
Yet how many of us, have managed to go beyond try!
Y do you like this, and this not,
Y do u want to work at all?
Y do you think this is the only way out,
Y do you not want to try anything else out?
Y is the grass greener on the other side?
Y don’t you look at the brighter side!
Y is it so hard to give in?
Y don’t you realize lots u might be missing!
Y do we have to fight?
Y is hope the only good thing?
Y am I asking so many questions…?
Yogi said – only questions lead to answers and answers to success
Y do I want to be successful, again?

One alphabet as a muse at a time. Here is “H”
An open invitation for poets to attempt to write with Q, V, X, Y and Z as muses.
Leave a comment in case you’re interested, I’ll contact you – don’t post the poem in the comments 😉
How do I make you understand?
How do I fight my tears?
How do I make you believe,
You’re my only near and dear?
How do I change the past,
How do I win your trust back,
How should I begin to live my life,
The way you wanted me to have?
How do I control my emotions?
How do I fight my fears?
How should I leave behind my dreams,
Please make that clear?
How do I face you again?
How to not disappoint you?
How to become successful or famous,
When your faith in me is due?
How to live with you or without?
How to break my spirit free?
How to make you happy,
But not hurting myself or me?
And HE came
That divine figure, I always
Wanted to see, wanted to touch, wanted to believe..
HE asked me, “What is your final wish, dear?”
I said, “Dearest God, send me to
Someone who’d hold my hand
when I’m sad,
who’d give me strength
when I’m disheartened,
make me smile
& forget all my worries,
& give me a hug that would engulf me..”
Almighty replied, “My child,
let go of your human attributes, make just one wish..”
I whispered something to HIS ears..
What..even I can’t recall !!
Next day when I woke up from my sleep,
I was born to earth, to a
woman who held my hand
when I took a sob,
who gave me strength when
I opened my eyes to the unknown strangers & world,
gave me a smile
for she was much happier about my birth,
gave me a big hug
that I thanked God, I am reborn again
in the same warm arms..
She_ to me_is the most
Beautiful of all..
Again & again, an overwhelming feeling
consumes my heart..
I can’t express enough.. I worship her..!!
So, when I end this journey- this birth again,
I would not take God’s much time
To describe that
Heavenly happiness but
Just whisper in His ears..
“Let me be born to the same mother again..!!!”
