A Conversation With My Diary

Buddy what has happened?
Why have you not scribbled on me?
What happened to those nights?
When I was the only thing you wanted.

I know that you miss my touch buddy,
But, I'm not able to pour the words,
It feels as if a fairy stole them,
She stole my words and my heart,

Why didn't you feel like telling me?
After all, I've recorded the stories of your crushes
Then why are you hiding it from me?
Did something or someone replace me?

No, it's not like that, I admit I forget you!
I admit I've hidden you in a corner!
But, you know what? I regret that! I really do!
Forgive me my first and most loyal friend!

My favourite human, you're always cherished,
Come, now, paint me with the hues of ink,
Bleed your sorrows and your disappointments,
Spill secrets, moments and people on me.

Waiting For Her

I've been lurking in front of your door,
Hoping to meet you before I go away,
I remember embracing you on the floor,
My dreams taking me on a journey faraway,

I call you in the hope you'd want to see me,
You ignore my attempts to reach you,
I wait there, distraught, making a plea,
My mind questions whether our bond was true,

I remember how our hands used to entangle,
Your gaze would leave my words in shackles,
Looking at you in tears made my nerves jangle,
I would recognize you from your chuckles,

I remember your gazing at the rain,
Crying, talking about the one who left you in pain,
Telling how you'd keep catching his memory's train,
I promised that I won't give you that pain,

Now here I am, on your door, waiting patiently,
Not knowing that you've replaced me silently,
You shared your pain & troubles so conveniently,
How easy it was for you to use me so bluntly?

Sometimes In Life

Sometimes in life, we stop doing the things that we love dearly. It maybe because of our laziness. It can also be attributed to the discovery of better things to do. If you love to do a particular activity then you don't need reasons to keep doing that. For instance, there was once a young man who loved to play the guitar. He was quite adept at it. One day, his attention was grabbed by the piano. He then went on to learn it too. But, he couldn't get quite as adept at it. So remember, never stop doing what you really love.

My First Date

When I saw her the first time in class,
Boy was I blown away!
By her deep piercing eyes,
By her alluring and pure smile,
By her song bird like voice.

Whenever I waved at her, she smiled back,
Sometimes, our eyes met in class,
She'd stare back with such love,
I'd feel like hiding my face in a book.

Soon, I decided to ask her out,
I wrote a beautiful message on a chit,
I gave it to her very nervously,
The butterflies in my stomach were going crazy.

When her reply came,
I went literally mad,
My happiness knew no bounds,
Finally, it would be just her and me!

I wanted to hug her really tight,
I wanted to let silence speak,
I wanted her head on my shoulder,
I wanted to stroke her beautiful hair.

Finally, the day that I was waiting for came,
She was dressed simply yet looked gorgeous,
I was speechless for two whole minutes,
I didn't even get up to pull her a chair out.

When I told that she was looking amazing,
The way she looked away, blushing, I had no words,
Our eyes met, I …

Dreams & Goals

Open your eyes my dear friend, It's a new day that brings new hopes, Let's climb the peak you want to ascend, Don't look at how steeply it slopes,
The moment you do, your dream will die,
You'll see bodies of those who dropped dead, Don't you look behind as you will be alone,
No one accompanies you on this lonely road,

The thoughts in your mind will torment you,
To stop walking, to go back to your home,
Your loved ones will come in dreams calling you,
Don't listen to your mind until you've reached the top. 

Natural Wonders of India

From icy glaciers and snow capped mountains of the Himalayas,To the high altitude desert of Ladakh,From lush green hills of the Western Ghats, To rocky hills of the Deccan Plateau, From the fertile agricultural plains of the Ganga, To the dry, arid and hot Thar Desert, From craggy hills of The Aravallis, To the salt flats of Kutch glistening at night, From coconut lined backwaters of Kerala, To the lush green paddy fields all over, From the tea gardens in Assam, To the wheat and mustard fields of Punjab, From the rainy hills of Cherapunjee, To the untouched beauty of Tawang, From the wild mangroves of the Sundarbans, To the many hidden beaches that line our coasts and islands,When at last we come to, Where it all ends at Kanyakumari where two masses of water meet.

Are You There, God?

Looking around myself evil in the world rising,The hate among us humans is boiling up,Power hungry maniacs rear their heads all over, Some have are so evil they can be called inhuman, We're forgetting Nature provides and destroys too.
Yet I see rays of hope through the darkness, Tales of humane and heroic action light our hearts, I've seen the fortunate help the needy, I hear about some who care for lonely children, Hear about people stand up for themselves,
This reminds me that God lives in our hearts, We must find His Path and follow it the best we can, I have great belief in the faith called humanity.

Changing People

We don't know our true friends,
Out of all who claim to be true friends,
Not sure whom to trust with our confidences,
As everyone spreads rumours about our life. Growing up, we make loads of friends,
Most of these friendships soon die of neglect,
The few that remain need to be fed time,
A resource in low supply and high demand,
Make relations the priority not money…By the time we realize what our life is gonna be,
We've already spent a small part,
Don't let that realization go waste,
We're all here for a while make it worth,
Find happiness in simple things. Your actions speak more than your words,
Choose wisely what you want to do,
All of us speak good, yet, don't act good,
Be true to your words,
Only then can others be their true self around you. Even after achieving success we're empty inside,
The race leaves the people we love behind,
Sometimes they forget that people change,
Or the fact that everyone is different.

Troubled Teens

The people who enter teenage now have very little experience of the real world. They're just too busy in the virtual world of games, social networking. Most teens prefer keeping in contact with their friends through WhatsApp, Facebook, Instagram and Snapchat. Some of them find it difficult to interact verbally. The biggest advantage is that one can interact with far away cousins and friends that one made in another city. Social media applications also allow picture and video sharing. In addition, one can follow their favourite sportspersons and personalities. The trouble comes when hackers, fake page operators and cyberbullies are involved. People are liable to spending precious “me” and “family” time. A few become lost in this world and can encounter some terrible things. The case in vogue, right now is the Blue Whale game. Many people have been sucked into this suicidal game. What I really want to say is, the use of social media is good, but, excess use can reduce outdoor activi…
