I feel the wind ,
A shield to my body.
They remind me of my desires ,
And to myself who I am.
I see the green trees ,
They remind me how beautiful this world is.
And now I lay my head down as I watch the street ,
The sun rays’ lightens my scars ,
As if telling me not to hide them all ,
From this unpleasant and hypocritical world.
They say I’m a nature lover ,
Ever thought , why?
This exterior beauty is way better than what’s inside.
Why think about negatives when you have positives around?

I miss her,
Yes, I do.
The one who told me what is right,
The one I asked not to interfere.
Yes,she was with me,
Right beside me.
I never felt her presence,
But she was.
And one day, memories stayed,
She left.
Never a good-bye ,
To me her absence was the biggest lie.
Everyone knew ,
Each one of them.
Merely they thought I would understand.
But I did ,
Yes , I did.
That she would never return.
Her heart certainly said too much,
For I was blindfolded.
Perhaps wanted me not to cry,
I told my heart,
It never obeyed.
Tears wet my face,
I never stopped.
Maybe wanted a good-bye,
I should’ve held her hand ,
Her freezing cold hand on mine.
And told her to stay,
Right beside me,
Like all those passed days.
Her eyes closed,
Not an expression,
And so did I understand ,
It was the end of her journey.

Stop your starving ,
Look at them.
Those who are homeless ,
Those without sheds.
Stop crying over things you haven't seen ,
They pray to an Omnipotent ,
For things they'll ever need.
Stop being an oaf ,
With those sheepless minds.
Never have they cursed ,
Are they so kind?
Babes give up life ,
How incomplete is the mother's diet?
Her bones and age so exposed ,
Empty without the feeding milk are her *******.
How helpless are they?
Their screams unheard.
Day another they starve ,
Till the unpredicted end ,
Will the fortune ever favor them?
Stop your starving ,
Look at them.

I want to be a poet,
Those words waving like in the ocean.
I’m unlike my sister,
We’re not entwined.
But passion comes later they say,
False is it, if I have it now?
Me wanting to write,
Is not just of my hobby,
But something I’d carry out my life.
Wanting to tell it to everyone,
I’m alike.
I want to be someone on my own,
Not just a body on a soul.
My voice trapped beneath,
Millions must’ve died,
By letting out their screams.
Abandoned our forethoughts,
Out of draconian fear we we,
Our voices remain underneath.

Problems? They'll end ,
Trust me , they will.
You don't need to give up ,
Or run around for help .
Remember you're not hapless ,
Kenned to be called as misfortune.
You're kind of an eerie,
'You' , nowhere in the history .
Call yourself a bravado ,
So will their ***** fade .
Dash off 'em sham problems ,
Chasing your immortal dreams.

It's all in the destiny ,
I call it to myself .
'I need to be alone ',
Is what I remind my mind. 'You need someone ',
They advised me.
I said it's a fake world ,
With fake people around.
Watch me acquire my unkempt desire,
Heading up for the horizon?
Believe me , this time I won't.
No I'm not going through the same thing ,
The same pain , the same failure .
And if I've to go through it somehow,
Remember I can always back off.

A sarcasm in their words ,
Said, I can do it .
Their mocking faces revealed ,
How characterless I am.
How I fetched myself upto here ,
Is just a lively joke .
Pursue want I want ,
Is just an imagery dream .
Ask me what I want ,
And I’ll tell you.
Please don’t shut me down ,
When I need you .
Self-esteem is not just I want ,
I need someone to walk me through the path.
And if it’s not just this ,
I’ll quit.
