Impulsive Anger

The anger is like the wild fire

Impulsive anger
Immediate destruction
thorns on a rose
silverware on the floor

Glass shards shattered
Red liquid on the ground
Authorities and Priorities
Men out of mind

Realisation,
Then there’s guilt and grief
Immediate destruction by
Impulsive anger


Anger can be quite dangerous and has the potential to transform you into something you didn’t know existed. This is my take on anger.

Whenever I am angry, I sort of forget all my morals and say things that I would’ve not said in my right state. This is also one of the reasons why my own anger scares me.

I personally have a long way to go control my anger. I do try, but however almost always the realisation always kicks in after the damage has been done……after the glass has been shattered.

How well do you take your anger?

Hope you enjoyed reading 🙂 Until next time

I remember that day as if it were yesterday. That day when I made a choice. A choice that changed it all.
I sometimes wonder would my life now be different if I’d made a contrasting decision? If I had pressed NO, would things have gone differently? for the good? or not? However, now there’s no way of finding out, cause what I’ve done can’t be undone.

That morning I was as fresh as the human body could get and my blood was as cold as blood can go without freezing.

I was ready with my desktop, waiting for my MS Results. And contrary to the human behaviour, I wasn’t scared at all : I was prepared for it. I was confident that I was gonna do well.
Still, my results “not so surprisingly” exceeded my expectations when I ranked first in my entire state. I was happy for my score but not so enthusiastic for the attention.

And so, the day passed by, with the warm wishes of congratulations by many known and unknown.
I received at least a fifty “Congratulations” from my family and fellow comrades and some strangers, via calls, dms, whatsapp messages etc., but none of them stood out as ‘that email’, the one I received in the dark hours of the night. The email without a subject.

I have heard how a single encounter in people’s life can change their life completely, like a miracle. And my encounter with this email was the “miracle of my life”. It truly was the turning point.

I have embedded a screenshot of that email in my post below, that you can check out, however I’m not sure as to how long it will be visible, so if you get to see it while it’s still on there, then I guess good for you👍. I have blurred out the personal information of course:

Going back into the days

Inspiration Image

Known the earth
and walked it’s path;
Now it’s time to go afar,
See the new lands to explore
Somewhere very far from home.

Put on seatbelts and a suit,
Packed in a jet, take off to the moon.
Travel far into the multiverse,
Travel far out of my universe.

Make friends with an alien mate,
Go back in time to change my fate
Find a black hole,
Ace the speed of light;
Travel back to a dark night.

Turn back time, a couple weeks before,
when one decision changed it all;
The decision that cause my fall.

No regrets, just reverse and rewind
Back to the life I’d left behind….


Hey, there!
I haven’t really posted much recently. This is mainly due to the fact that lately I’ve not been feeling to write much, because lately I’ve been overthinking a lot on the mistakes that I’ve done, mistakes that the “silly me” has done. Like once a 10-11 year old me lied to my teacher that I’d forgot my book because I was out last night. These silly mistakes now make me have guilt and regrets. This is also something that you’ll see I’ve reflected on in this poem. So, hope you enjoyed reading!

This is also my first collab with a very dear friend of mine, also a great thinker and versatile writer, Devangi. Devangi is like my friend, philosopher and guide, and the best part is that we both enjoy writing. This poem is first of the four activities we’ve planned, in which we’ve both written something inspired by the pics we sent each other. So now you know the where the Inspiration photo comes from. Do also check what Devangi has written inspired by the pics I’ve sent her. And also check out her blogging site, where she uploads poems, articles and many more.

Lockdown lessons

Hey there everyone!

Reading the title, you must’ve already guessed today’s topic; yes, it’s “Lockdown Lessons”. So by now we’ve all been in lockdown for quite sometime……actually quite a long time to be honest. So let’s see what this episode has taught us.

I’d say the first thing that most of us learnt from lockdown was the word meaning of the word “lockdown” itself and “quarantine”. And be it whatever age we all used these words extensively especially in the initial times to enhance our vocabulary and to sound learned.

And it’s not only english that we’ve learnt, besides english, we also learnt a lot in science especially biology. We’ve learnt what viruses are, what vaccines are and how do they work, we’ve learnt about our immunity system and we’ve also learnt about the ‘chemical composition of a hand sanitizer’ and what not.

Other than these, I’m sure we all have tried acquiring some new skill or talent during the lockdown be it cooking, cleaning, washing utensils etc.

I personally had started learning calligraphy and knitting but then there were just too many dishes to wash in the house so I kinda fell out of practise.

Okay so now let’s take a look at some really important life lessons that lockdown has taught us.
And when I think about this, the first thing that comes to my mind is “THE UNCERTAINITY OF LIFE”. This lockdown has taught us really how uncertain life is : A person is there this moment, doesn’t know what’s gonna happen in the next one.
And no! I don’t mean this in a negative way.

It’s human mind’s nature to make plans for the future and whilst I think think that creating a secure future is an intelligent move, I’d say that along this we must also learn to LIVE IN THE MOMENT.
And no, by living in the moment, I don’t mean to go on that travelling trip that you’ve been always wanting to go on or do every challenging thing that you’ve been wanting to do- NO!

By living in the moment, I mean to CHERISH THE MOMENT and BEING GRATEFUL AND THANKFUL for it

  • Being thankful for waking up today
  • Being thankful that you have food on your plate
  • Being thankful for being around the people you love
  • Being thankful that you are healthy and safe and for everything else

So that is another lesson lockdown has taught us : Being in the moment and cherishing it, by being grateful and thankful and spending it with your loved ones; your family and friends, your near and dear. Especially with your elders and taking good care of them. Do something simple everyday so that you can bring a smile on their face and I’m sure you’ll thank me later

So that’s it for the day. Hope you enjoyed it.

Have a nice day ahead. Get vaccinated if you can. Stay safe. Stay happy. Stay Blessed

Until next time!
