Growing Up


We entered this world crying in our mother’s arms unaware about what the future has planned for us. People say that time flies like anything when you’re having fun. Yes, it did. So here are my words I wrote around two years ago about it —

Fourteen years back I was an innocent little girl

Unaware of the world, but curious to learn

Laughing and crying in my mother’s lap

Marching forward in life and tracing its map


Twelve years back, I was a naughty young girl

Observing the world new things I would learn

At that point of time, I knew nothing but fun

Running, jumping and playing in the sun


Ten years back, my life moved on

Four years had passed since I was born

Time had come to go to school

To get my books and all my new tools


Six years back, school became more serious

The thirst for knowledge made me more curious

Tests and home-works were now a part of me

My coming future I was eager to see


And now I am a fourteen-year-old student

Ready to take challenges, standing proud and confident

Understanding this world with more clarity now

Trying to figure out things and asking what, why and how


Years have passed but there are more good things to come

All the hurdles and obstacles I’m ready to overcome

I hope I’ll be a successful woman ahead

Touching the sky of victory and flying like a jet.

I’ve Become An Orphan

african orphan

Ever wondered how is the life of an orphan? A little child who has lost his everything. How would he survive? How would he get the love he deserves?! Here is the ocean of emotions of an orphan child —

The world seems darker to me every day

I still wonder for which mistake I’ve to pay

Lost are the days of happiness, the days of joys

The days I had my parents and I used to enjoy

Why do I feel a surge of anxiety?

Why have I started hating almighty?

I know the reason behind this aversion

I know the answers to these questions

Because I’ve become an orphan standing all alone

Wandering through streets in search of a new home


The gentle drops of rain seems harsh to me

The soft blowing breeze seems brutal to me

The chirping of birds has become a noise

My heart, my soul can’t hear my inner voice

I feel like the land where seeds were never sown

I feel like the music with a monotonous tone

Because I’ve become an orphan standing all alone

Wandering through streets in search of a new home


The path of my life has changed its direction

I think I’ll get lost if I don’t pay attention

I may fall down and I may get injured

But there is no one now to take me forward

I still have to move on even if I stumble

I still have to go on there is no point to grumble

Because I’ve become an orphan standing all alone

Wandering through streets in search of a new home


But now I’ve realized that past was a history

And I need to move to discover the life’s mystery

There is a silver lining even in worst situations

You just need to find it out with determination

No matter I’ve no support, No matter I’m alone

I’ll still be moving on; I’ll still be climbing on

Because no matter I am an orphan standing all alone

I’ll wander through the streets and find a new home.




You’ll start feeling the pressure on your mind

And this harsh reality will make you blind

The clouds above your head will roar wild

You’ll feel like a lost innocent child

Your heart will be filled with grief and pain

There would be nothing to lose and nothing to gain

The sun won’t rise, the moon won’t shine

Your graph of emotions won’t be a straight line

And life will become so cruel and unkind

That not even a single bit of peace you’ll find

So the day when life fills your heart with such fear

Just wink at it and say “Try me, dear”

The Bride


When a girl gets married she enters a completely new life.  A new family, a new home and a new adventure in her journey of life begins. Here are the feelings of a newly wed bride —

There goes the bride waving a goodbye

With her prince charming as she passes by


Leaving behind her friends, her family, her past life

She now enters the world, a new life as a wife


Carrying her belongings and memories by her side

She smiles at her soul-mate standing beside


She hopes he’ll forever hold her hands

And vanish her sadness with a magic wand


No more of her mom’s lecture she’ll get to hear

She thinks about her memories with a smile and tears


No more fights with her brother she’ll have to face

She relives all those moments in her memory case


No more of wandering and spending time alone

There always be someone waiting at home


No more of loneliness, no more of fear

He’ll always be there to wipe way her tears


And the call from future pushes her ahead

She packs her memories that once she had made


Hoping he’ll be the one who will always make her smile

She prays that they would go on happily for miles.



Books are definitely not just a few bundle of pages bound together with something scribbled on them. Rather, they are a blessing to us. They’ll always be my first love and here are my feelings towards them —

You came into my life when I first entered the school

A new chapter begun, you were my new tool


Soon you became my best friend forever

Because you never left my side, Nah! Never!


Day and night I spent my time with you

If I were a leaf, you were my morning dew


As the journey continued, you grew up along with me

From that picture book, you turned into a novel I could see


You introduced my life to a wonderful golden door

That took me to a place I’ve never been before


When this dynamic world made me believe I’ll lose you

I realized it soon that no one can replace you


Because you were the star that shone brightest in the sky

If we lived together then together we’d die.
