A wave of frustration takes over me. 
Neither can I think clearly nor can I see. 
My life is at a cross road. I have to choose a path. 
But I seem to have incurred my fate's wrath. 

Why am I hesitating to come out of my shell? 
Why should I still suffer from a life miserable than hell? 
I wasted my time in my college days.
I now realize how Karma pays. 

Singing songs of sadness, surrounded by shadows of sin. 
I have reached a stage where I no longer care for a loss or win.
Time and again, I keep repeating my story. 
Misspent youth is not my moment of glory. 

I have been waging an internal war. 
Wounded in the process and experienced the scar. 
Giving up without a fight is not my cup of tea. 
A better version of myself, I promise to be. 

Learn to trust yourself says my mother. 
She rose like a Phoenix as she raised me and my brother. 
She took all the harsh criticism in her stride. 
Both of us look at her in adoration and pride. 

Yes, I will believe in me, dear mom. 
I will keep fighting for years to come. 
As I promised a better version of me.
As the time progresses, so we shall see. 


Thank you so much for taking your precious to visit my website. Hope you enjoyed reading my blogs. 😊😊
