I made mistakes

Posted: January 27, 2013 in mom, poem, poetry

What is a mistake?
I never understood.
A big  mistake,
A small mistake,
Or a silly mistake-
This division, to me, never stood;
Because I suffered every time
When I made a Mistake.
They pulled me away
From my parents
And I cried
A small mistake?
But I wasn’t admitted in school,
And my mother wept.
So, I was punished
A big mistake?

While in school,
I always studied hard
But was scared of losing even a single mark
and so missed a whole line
A silly mistake?
I cried a  lot
It was pressure or mistake
I fail to understand
But I suffered lot because of that mistake.

I opted for a career
But didn’t find it interesting
And could not do  well in it
I was shattered
And the whole family suffered
I felt it was a big mistake
Was it a mistake
Or I  was pursuing
What I was always told,
‘Follow your heart’-
I fail  to understand.

So I was  always punished for mistakes
But I will  not stop making mistakes
They make me strong
They  attach me to more
To the persons whom i belong,
And  i learn
That it is  better to express emotions Before taking decision;
If not, it might be a very big  mistake!

Three colors of unity

Posted: January 26, 2013 in hope, mom, poem, poetry

The three colors of the flag

Always fascinate me.

When I close my eyes,

They carry me back  to the times

When fields were natural green;

The hearts and souls were in peace;

Clean and orange,

Like the rising sun,

Taught everyone to rise,

And lay  down  their lives

For mother India and fellow  beings. (more…)

Togetherness

Sometimes I am late,
Sometimes I wait,
Sometimes I dare,
Other times, it seems, I don’t care,
But at all times, dear one,
I think; I feel; I wish we were eternal like the sun.

Everywhere, all the time

Your  dream is my duty
Your smile is my beauty
Your failure is my struggle
Your success is my pleasure
Your grumble is my fight
Your wish is my delight
You and me
How different we are
But your heart is my soul
Your achievement is my goal
And when you are nowhere around me
I feel you everywhere and every moment
Whether I am living or I am dying

Because you are not you

You were my friend,

You cared for me.

But a thunder came

That is called fame.

It tore us apart.

A lightning of selfishness

Told us to depart.

But then came the inspiration

That I am my own friend;

I have a heart and soul

That will take me to my goal;

And I have a strong  will

That will be with me,

Always getting me through

Thunders and lightnings

While I am not with you,

Because you are now not you.

It happened again!

After a long long time it happened again,

As if a decade in rewind.

Thought that they would never come back;

I was ahead, those times behind..

Singing and dancing all the time;

Wanting to say so much in a mime;

Jumping from one puddle to another in the rain.

After a long long time it happened again..

Parting exchange

We all make mistakes

I have made some too

I will not ask for forgiveness

Because I may not be able to give the same to you

 

We all have curiosities

I have some too

I will not ask for revelation

Because I may not be able to give the same to you

 

We all keep memories

I have kept some too

I will not ask for dis-remembrance

Because I may not be able to give the same to you

 

We all have wishes

I have some too

I will not ask for fulfillment

May my four-leaf-clover be with you
