Which place should I seek it
It snaps on my face
After a short duration
It bangs on me
Leaving me blank
And full of angst
Along comes a pain
A strong one right in my gut
Source: Google
And a stone hanging in my throat
Stopping me from breathing
And that is a reminder
Of when I lost the one I loved
Perhaps it was worst than it is today
And I have come this far
So I will survive this
In the face of uncertainty
I will breathe and float
Just breathe and not struggle
And get off to sleep
For tomorrow will be better
It will be a different day

Such a crisp and snappy word. It looks like a high speed vehicle about to accelerate in the endless roads. But at the moment it is standing on a highway, while I am standing on a pavement next to Now.

While Now is to leave, there are questions I have for Now to answer me right at this moment. But Now never stops, it moves like the seconds hand of a clock. And I have this something to make Now stay for some more time, converse about the random things that make Now wonder. Just as the random stuff that makes me think deep. Just a drop on a window pane has the power to make me think about the universe, or just wonder what that one decision I took would have led me where in the parallel world.

Perhaps I am a deep thinking, and so is Now. But Now's ways are a little different. Now speaks in moments, I speak in lengths.

I want all the answers now, Now answers me in bits and pieces.

Fence, a creaking Fence!

I had been sitting on a fence
Really narrow and weak
Holding my weight
And waiting for me
To muster enough strength to stand
It makes a creaking sound
Source: Google Image Search
As I make way to stretch my leg
Telling me to stop
For the fence is old and weak
bearing with me
But me, I have been exhausted
To see people unmask
The fence carries no mask
I was to be a playful accomplice
To the fence
I am in love with its honesty
Weak and dull
With all its imperfections
And loving me back
A little more intense than I love it
In real sense with all its raw and broken self.

Author's Note: Finally wrote something after a long long time, it was when I was about to toss off to sleep.

Zest for Z | A to Z April 2016 Challenge

Zest for now
For time
For life
For the living
For nature
For trails
For you
For them
For everyone
To live and let live
To accept for who they are
To stop picking on weaker

Author's Note: Finally!

You for Y | A to Z April 2016 Challenge

You are my strength
I see you in the faces
Of people I cross by
And I get a reaffirmation
That you are around
You are my spirit
A humanly feeling
Clapping as I cross by
Cheering as I stand there
As I pass through life
You are  my passion
Who enjoy what I do
Adore what I talk
You are me

Author's Note: Y done!

Xenophobia for X | A to Z April 2016 Challenge

Two red head girls enter a huge toy stall. They see no one, they look around and try to locate someone to help them. They started taking a look at the display and shortlisted toys for them. Their dad followed them to the stall and asked, pasand kar liya (have you made your choice). Hanjee (yes) both of them replied. Two kids came out from below the stall, with a sight of relief, yes they know Hindi.

A red head was born in a family, relatives were visiting the new born when one of the young boys raised his concern. Will I have to learn talking in English to speak to her. She does not look like an Indian and she will be speaking in pure English.

A long train journey, one family with an infant. The infant started crying as it looked at the red head. She looked out of the world to the infant.

These were quite cute examples of Xenophobia. Uglier stories exist. I just dont look an an Indian to many and they express their displeasure in many ways. Many subtle ways, one classic one is to get me stand in shade so that my fair skin don't shine while they make way to stand in sun. Many people have done that with me.
We fail to create a world of acceptance, a borderless world. And Xenophobia exists, across borders. We experience it even in out neighbourhood.

Worse nightmare for W | A to Z April 2016 Challenge

Dying in a plane crash
Doing something without wanting to do it
Not being in love with the man I am with
Not loved back by people I love
Losing my Red hair
Surrounded by superstion mongers
Being in company of toxic manipulative people
Being out of touch with nature

That were a few of my worse nightmares.. What are yours?
