If only she knew

if only she knew
that all that she sees
is a view that is shown
because all that really rings true
is only within
within herself
in her natural glow

if only she knew
that all that she has endured
has only assured
coming weak moments of tomorrow

if only she knew
that there were some lucky few who
noticed her sail then followed her trail
and now they are in their finest stay

if only she knew
that no matter how tricky it feels
with silly dos and don’ts
stuck in moods of stone
however she sways through them
her genuine threads will stick along, even insane

if only she knew
that when she smiles its only
then
really worthwhile

if only she knew.

Zindagi AAJ

Bahaar bhi kitni jadoo bhari hain yaha

Bahaar bhi kitni jadoo bhari hain yaha


Bankar aarzoo khanakti rehti hain kahaani

Bankar aarzoo khanakti rehti hain kahaani


Zindagi toh aaj
Zindagi toh Abhi
Khayal to kal ke bhi,
aaj Pe hi fidaa hoti hain, hain na! Shukriya

Found

Palestinian woman in a little bit of self love

From a thought bubble of snow
Blew little words in a row
That wept away
Few moments of hollow

They nudged and itched
And shook her from freeze
To the little door she joyfully breezed

That long forgotten jungle
Where all her beauty potions breathes
says “it’s time to come back,
And get dressed into sugar please”

The mirror dazed at the wealth it saw
And a smile in return it trapped from her

Stolen by rosy illusions that kept her drowned,
A step in her closet where she was finally found.
