How Young are you?

How old are you?
The teenybopper quizzed,
Not too old I guess,
Yet to make my bucket list!

What’s in an age , I pondered?
Every day’s a fresh start,
Add life to years,
Just be young at heart!

How old are you?
Makes one sound old already,
Just add a candle to the existing few,
Don’t hide your age,My Lady!

Even, odd or prime,
Age is just a number to disclose,
How young are you?
Is it not a better question to pose?



Truly yours!

I am the one you cannot escape,

I keep you sane and sound,

Swaying between your past and future,

I keep your feet on the ground.

I don’t judge you for the lost treasure

I gear up for the unknown quest,

Shut your demons in the closet,

Prepare you for the best.

Nurture me and protect me,

Keep me away from discontent

I am the gift of today,

I am yours truly, the humble “PRESENT”



End of love

Tiptoed gingerly into her house,
Unknown to her beloved spouse,

Longing arms hugged me in an embrace,
A vile expression dancing on her face.

If looks could kill , they say,
An unmarked grave would be on my way.

She whispered softly into my ears,
Lose all inhibitions and conquer your fears.

We bit into the apple of temptation,
Was too late for a fitting redemption.

A glimpse of how all this started,
Caught in boredom, morose and unwanted.

All’s not fair in life,some things are unjust,
It was the end of love……..,the beginning of lust!!!



Don’t tell me your dreams!!!

One fine day,

On yet another lazy Sunday,

Innocence blurted out with glee,

Growing up what I wanted to be!

They chuckled not having understood the reason,

Taking a different path is similar to treason!

An idea lying quietly on a platter

Drowned out in a noisy chatter!

Sassy words spoken to scare,

The mental army rose up to the dare,

Dreamy eyes stuck on one thing,

A serious endeavour not a flimsy fling!

A different track ,a little offbeat,

Following your dream , certainly no mean feat!

Larger than life or terribly small,

It is your dream ,your life’s call.

Hold it close and shut it tight,

Silently gear up for the fight.

It is your baby ,to nurture and protect,

Keep it safe from derision or disrespect.

The road is windy and circuitous,

The ultimate journey extremely laborious,

Slowly and stealthily climb to the top,

Bouquets or brickbats should never let you stop!

Get up there battling all extremes,

Hush till then,…………

” Don’t tell me your dreams”

The Comeback

 Run like you never did stop

 Like you never hit a roadblock 

 Stand up like you never ever fell down 

 Stick your feet firmly onto the ground 

 Make a run for it, make a dash

 Be the phoenix rising from its own ash!!!!

Just for you, Mom!


The moment I opened my eyes  teeny  and wide

She must have felt a feeling of warmth inside

Must have held my tiny finger and cried

‘N’  Exclaimed “Oh..  how precious is  my lil child”

The first lillte step and words uttered from my mouth

The best moment of her life…………. really no doubt!!!!

Holding my hand she left me to the school door

Crying and wailing I ran back to her

Everything will be fine she whispered in my ear

When you look back I still will be standing here

Then came the wonder years

My teenage days

Must have troubled her in don’t know how many ways

Mom I ‘ll fine you don’t have to worry,

Pat came the reply

You better be on time , or you shall be sorry!!!!!!!

Egged me on always to try out new things

Time to Explore the world she said,                                      

Go ahead ‘n’  spread your wings

When somethin went wrong , She would always pull me near

Would  cuddle me in her  arms and  stop every tear

Go ahead she said,”Darling, don’t you ever  fear”

If you fall back I will be there to hold you my dear

Just a few more things to you my Guiding Angel,

I wanna say…

Challenges you  faced must have been insurmountable

 Yet  you  overcame them

Your efforts were indefatigable

Its amazing how much love that  heart of  YOURS can hold

Stories of Innumerable sacrifices to see us smile it may  unfold

You are  an epitome of unconditional love,  Mom ur the best!!!

Everyone of us must have read this somewhere

‘GOD’ made Mothers in this world…..                                             

                    Because he could not be Everywhere!!!!
