Fly high, above mediocrity

Square pegs in round holes Trying to fit in preformed molds Bowing to all societal pressures Forgetting all individual measures.. Slaughtering all creative drive Conforming to every rule, they strive Internalizing all frustration Simmering inside like ammunition Living a life of discontentment Harboring subtle resentment Through their lives they trudge Eventually unable to budge From the moldContinue reading “Fly high, above mediocrity”

Break-up and make-up

Unmet desire Broken expectations Burning like a fire Raging sensations Promises, scattered Vows all lost Animosity unfettered. Silence, like frost Hanging in the air Threatening to explode And lay bruised hearts bare On a lonely road. The road that they had Once traveled together The passion that they had Once shared with each other NowContinue reading “Break-up and make-up”

Fear of the unknown, fear of God Fear of nature’s destructive power UnleashedContinue reading “What makes the world go round?”

The noise of clutter

Surrounded by clutter Too much to sift through Creating invisible webs That entangle you.. All the memorabilia Cherished in the days gone by; Their significance now lost, Abandoned, they lie. Crying out, you moved on.. Now set me free, please do! And in the process of letting go You’ll free your spirit too.. Cut ties with yourContinue reading “The noise of clutter”

Women at the turn of last century

Recently I read two books that I found  inspiring. Both these books were randomly picked out by my toddler at the local library and appeared interesting enough to give a try. Incidentally, both were set in the late 1800s-early 1900s. Both had strong, progressive women as protagonists.
