# Fight your Battle #

1

Face those fears
Kill those demons
You are better than
What you think you are..

Pull yourself up
Try to find a faith
Only you can find and push 
Yourselves to a limit..

Dont depend on an angel
Dont wait for a miracle
Nothing ever happens to
Someone with a common man fate..

Find your cause
Change your path
There is only so much you can
Achieve going on this way!

It may be small
But you have your own destiny
A reason you’re still breathing
A reason you don’t know..

Stop making excuses
Stop finding faults in others
Peep inside and see what you got
And what you can make out of it..

Unless you fight the evil
You’ll be thriving on its venom
But again and again you got to try
Don’t give up and never cry!

My cup of “T”

Today I am scared
Towing my dreams
Towards the future
Tampering with my feelings and
Testing the mighty nature
Tonight I might not succeed
Take another plan next day, maybe
Then play with the rules
Try they might
To stop me, again, but
Tomorrow I will get back up
Trust my instincts
Try my luck
Tease the fate because
Truth shall prevail..

Moving On…

move on

Time went on and
so did I
finally gloomy winds
said a good-bye..

The sun rose
and shined with glory
life started to write
yet another story..

The breeze promised me
that the waters will be calm
dreams went on
holding future in my palm..

I saw the moon
which gave me solace
and I walked ahead
to a bright new place..

moving on

A – Z poetry : “M” (another one)

One alphabet as a muse at a time. Here is “M”

An open invitation for poets to attempt to write with S, T, 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 😉

METAMORPHOSIS

Meager is the income that fills the stomach of four,

Miniatures in the busier world lying as the roadside dwellers,

Moonlight is the silken sheet they cover themselves with,

Many times wondering how lucky to be in the nature so clean!

Myriad dreams they rear everyday

“May the happiness of our souls never fade away”

Meandering on the path of life,

Meekly they wish for such a beautiful and simple sight!

metamorphosis 1

Means of income very limited,

Marginal are the desires nicely knitted,

Manifesting true courage of living

Mother of the two stands with her man unconditionally…

Metamorphosis of life brings on road ,the riches,

Momentary asset of stages vanish through the ages,

Moistened eyes with a smile inside,

Music of nature keeps them bright and alive …

how it happened ..

Kucch labz humne kahe

Kuch labz tumne kahe

Aur unhi labzo ke darmiyaan

Kahin kho gaye mere dil o jaan

 4

Kuch ishare humne diye

Kuch ishare tumne kiye

Aur unhi isharo se sharma ke

Hum apna dil tumhe de baithe

3
Kuch haya idhar bhi thi

Kuch haya udhar bhi thi

Par jab parda utha, us dil nasheen

Ki har ada pe hum mar mite

*waiting at your doorstep*

Itni jaldi kya hai ghar jaane ki,

abhi toh shuruat nahi ki humne apni kahani ki,

tumhe ek lamha theherna toh padegi hi,

abhi toh koshish hi nahi ki humne rijhane ki..

Do labz sun le mere dil ka haal,

ki tu hi meri dhun hai aur tu hi meri taal,

bin tere mera jeevan hai aisa neeras,

jise badal na paaega koi bhi kaal..

Par teri preet jo bha gayi hai ab mann ko,

toh kuchh samajh nahi aata is baawre ko,

ek nazar mujhe taqalluf se dekh lene de tujhe,

jaane ye mauka mile na mile kal ko..

Ja ab tujhe mai aazad karta hoon,

tujhse door rehke bhi tera deedar karta hoon,

laut ja tu apne gaon apne desh,

par yaad rakh iss dar pe roz tera intezaar karta hoon..

a silent place

I lay in the bed, now alone,

what we ever had, is now all gone,

the night is pacing away,

as you are racing away… 

I shut my eyes, now all wet,

miss those times, when we first met,

two strangers got on a ride,

knowing that they wont survive…

I count those days, now in the past,

when I was smiling, but that dint last,

cuz now you’re really far n far away,

and here on my bed, I silently lay…

\ the journey called “Life” /

In the toughest times, you row your boat alone,

So just keep in mind my friend, it’s not even worth staying in a safe zone…

One day you’ll have to reach out to the horizons,

So just keep in mind my friend, you’ll have people to share your happiness then…

Maybe you’ll grow tough or probably you’ll be the same,

But keep in mind my friend; you always play alone in this game…

You hold that belief & faith in yourself,

Cuz keep in mind my friend, there’ll be enough problems sent…

One day you’ll be close to victory all alone,

But keep in mind my friend, the ego can lead to your doom…

Though, always keep your God in your heart,

But keep in mind my friend; you’ll also need friends near and far…

((…engulfed…))

I’m feeling silence I never experienced,

& it just leaves me so stoned,

As if my life is halted for a moment,

& time has finally called me disowned..

I am doing what I used to do,

but its meaning is now unclear,

even when I just lie on my bed,

I’m enveloped by my inner fear..

I can hear the bells ringing far away,

but not sure if the sound will persist,

just like I don’t if I’ll be able to live,

or my existence will soon cease to exist..

I close my eyes for the darkness to engulf me,

but my pacified mind takes no rest,

cuz even though I feel my heart is broken,

I can feel it beat in my chest..

…………..aa gaya

Tere bin saanso ko behlana aa gaya,

ab rote-rote pal mein aansu chhupana aa gaya..

Kabhi hasa karte the jin par hum,

ab toh dheere dheere unse kadam milana bhi aa gaya..

Na kar paae ishq tum humse,

ab humein bhi aapna pyaar chhupana aa gaya..

Kar le tu sitam chahe jitna,

gaeron ke saath dekh tumhe, ab muskurana bhi aa gaya..

Chahe kar tu sada hi inkar,

tere ikrar karne ka tareeka bhi samajh aa gaya..

Kari na yeh umeed, ki milenge dobara,

teri tasveer ko dekhkar sona bhi humein aa gaya..
