Maybe, Maybe Not

We did good the first time we did this We tried, and heaven can bear us witness But we failed, not without good intentions Maybe loving a woman is a thankless job Forget the credits, forget payback The last thing you expect Is the kind of love you give Forget recompense She’ll try, in bits, […]

Hope

Well, it’s hope that keeps us.
It’s hope that sustains us.
It’s because of hope that we are still here.
And those who choose to leave,
Perhaps have exhausted theirs

This is August

This is August

The past six months of my life have been crazy. And even more, the last two years. It’s been challenging. Maybe not the most challenging phase of my life, but the peculiarity of this time, made it stand out. I had never thought I’d be a victim of many of the things I encountered, recently. […]

Survival

It’s a new season. It’s a new time. These new writings are different from the previous ones. And in many ways inspired differently. The first set of writings came from a a young man who had it figured out, or at least, had hope that it was all figured out. From that enthusiasm came the […]

​Day Nineteen – #40DaysAppreciation Challenge 

To everyone who woke up On one morning or the other this year Not knowing what to do, where to go What to eat, Nor where to sleep Dispersed across the Big Cities of this world Home and lost abroad Who wake up only seeking opportunities Whatever their hands shall find to do Whatever their […]

Day Eleven- #40DaysAppreciation Challenge 

To the Suicidal And the Suicided Who endured till the last minute Till the cup of hope tipped over Pouring through the sandy floor Never to be picked up again “Kaka ke ku maje sese” kind of a thing I’ve been wondering What could have caused it? Who could have caused it? How terrible it […]

Day Ten- #40DaysAppreciation Challenge 

​To those who have lost loved ones Who have experienced the pain of goodbyes Who can’t imagine how to live with this absence Whose mind are running wild with memories Memories of words, touch, looks, and moments “I remember the first time I met her” “Oh, I wish dad was around to witness this day” […]

When Love Happens

#LoveWednesday Is it possible to stop thinking about you? Is it possible to totally forget you? Is it possible to get you out of my mind? Like, be immune to the sweetness you command Cos the way you fill my thought is quite enormous Not that I’m complaining, I’m just curious Was it I that […]

Physician, Heal Thyself

A beloved friend of mine said some days ago, and I will just paraphrase here, “sometimes, you get tired of self healing and you just wish someone would heal you instead”. Now isn’t that some food for thought? Well, for me, it is. It really is. Immediately I read his words, I understood what he […]
