Stepping back into reality.

Only after we've seen without, can we realize what holds within.
Only after we've realized what is outside, can the inside exist.
Two strands of reality, separated by none but insight.
Sometimes, the truth exists within, sometimes without.


Quietly tracing the old steps back, she stepped back into the reality.
It was difficult to hold on to the insight the last time.
Remembering her old path, she kept treading ahead,
Hoping that the guiding light will take her to dreams.


The beauty of the dreams remained, she had seem them before.
Not that they were new to her,
She was going to find a new self of her in them.
She isn't, wasn't and will not be dreaming, they're going to slowly take her where she belongs.


With the flame of faith and righteousness,
She kept walking, looking for that self of hers she imagined.
A mark of 10 years ahead in time, is what she kept tracing.
She was going to chase the best version of herself, today, tomorrow and in the years to come.


The best version will keep moving too,
in lines with her choices from the day.
The good thing is her eyes will keep looking out for it,
and remembering that one day, we'll get there.


There's beauty in not being alone,
Like someone out there is always looking out for you.
Making sure that you do the right thing today and tomorrow,
And when you fear, to remind you who you are. Fearless.


Stronger than yesterday, becoming everyday.
She kept herself aligned with her heart.
After all, her dreams is where it lead her,
completing her story, in parts.


Maybe, everyone can live beyond what they're capable of.

the voices inside my head.

As I fall, and yet fall again, something inside me starts talking.

At the point of complete breakdown, the left said- you're falling, you must be miserable. you don't have the basics, that roof above the head came literally falling down. That job you dreamt about, gave up on you. Those finances you used to have, soon you'll see the crunch.

Just as tears started to well up, the right said- but wait. This is a test of patience. You've had the best all along, maybe this is to make you see that it's yin and yang. and if this is a yang, then a yin must follow. The basics you had were less than what you deserved, more is on the way. That job wasn't the best that could've happened to you, better is on the way. You've always been good with finances, hence your savings are here for you today. Tomorrow, we'll save again and earn much more again. After all, you're changing gears.

After all, you're incredibly strong. There's so much more you've thought about. Its all on the way. Like Einstien said- 'you cannot solve a problem from the same consciousness that created it. You must learn to see the world anew'. 

The new awaits.
Tomorrow will be a new day.
Maybe everyone can live beyond what they're capable of.

Chapter 3- are we on the way?

Today, are we on the way?
Towards our dreams and destiny.
Towards sunrises of hope and glee.
Towards days that seem at peace.
Are we on the way?


Did we, get it right?
Could I forgive myself, for the days left behind.
For the moments spent toiling, when they could be worth the while.
Did everything in the past, add up to what we wished for?


Standing here today,
seems like today was on the way.
Everything in today, is filled with hopes from yesterday.
Maybe, someone out there was listening to the thoughts we had inside.
Maybe, the world is brewing tomorrow, with hopes from today.

Thank you for today, and everyday.

Chapter 2- Renaissance

The time lapsed between falling and getting back up is sometimes longer than my contemplation of it. Sometimes, its a bit more difficult than it seemed.

Closed her eyes and went for it. No thinking.

Who are you?
Nobody these days.

What am I looking for?


Drenched in pain, she kept walking in the rain. 
Some days it felt like everything was under control. 
Like every moment had its reason. 
This time she realized that she was falling back into the same trap, yet again. 


Then she heard a voice saying, 
dissociate yourself from who's pulling you down. 
There are two versions of you, 
one is born out of love, and the other out of fear. 


Who is this version? 
If it's making you less comfortable than who you used to be, 
then this version needs to looked at from,
this one needs help, don't surrender to its fears, show it the way. 


Show it the fact that you're not only this version, 
show it the dreamer who also lives within and seeks the truth
show it how the world has helped the other version realise its potential,
show it that even when no one is, someone is listening. 


Don't close your eyes to fears, 
open your eyes to fearlessness. 
its easier than it seems to be, 
maybe, the opposite of fear is love. 

Somedays, I used to feel empowered at the end of sentences.
This is one of those sentences.

One last time.


One last time, find the courage
to fight it all out.
This time you're not alone.
this time the voices won't echo in the silence.


One last time, don't let what's inside
take you down.
If you're holding on tight,
you won't fall.


One last time, hear the softer echo
and not the loud noises.
It's here to take you home,
there won't be a need to run anymore.


One last time, don't give up
you're stronger than those voices
you can pick yourself up,
and not your pieces.



I think, my life could be easy.
If only, the biggest enemy wasn't living inside me.

Let it go.

Let it go.

Take yourself out of that closet and press the reset button.

Take your fears, put them in a box and send it to nowhereland.

Bid goodbyes to things and people who don't feel right anymore.

Work it out, that dream plan you've been holding in your diary.

Give the time and energy to the one person who needs it the most.

Replan, rethink and restructure those trips, this time to the places you want to go to.

take it all out, all the anger and hatred holding you back in art that defines you.

Find out all that you desire, become the person who deserves it all.

Stop chasing who you are, and become who you could be.

You could be whoever you wanted to be, trust me.

“Being brave doesn’t mean you aren’t scared.
Being brave means you are scared, really scared, badly scared,
and you do the right thing anyway.”

When I found you.

When I found you,
I realized that,
all this time
I was looking for you.


Like everything
was meant to fall apart,
so that one day,
everything could seem perfect.


It seems like
dreams could lead us to someplace.
I finally feel
what its like to be at home.


Someone once said,
house is a place
and home
is a feeling.


I think we all need
someone
we can call home.
You're home to me.


Feels like I'm
living a beautiful dream,
and finally I have
everything that I ever needed.


"Maybe a soulmate is someone who understands the very deepest parts of you without you having to explain."

one step at a time.

'cause Winnie the Pooh once said little by little, one travels far. 


In a stable world, when you start with instability, the world might seem a little turbulent.
It could seem like you're falling apart. 


One day in all the turbulence, you will find the stable you. 
Hold onto that person. 

She's the one you've been seeking. 

Do you remember who you were, before the world told you who to be?

Resistance.


How much will you fight the battles that are not worth the fight? 

How much will you resist something that is out of your control? 

How could you define your happiness in terms of something that doesn't depend on you? 

How could your happiness depend on anything anyway? 

"Those who bring sunshine to the lives of others cannot keep it from themselves."
- J.M. Barrie
