So What Are You Fighting For?

There are some days you may feel weary,
As if things just aren’t going right.
No amount of attempts to avoid,
You step into the big mud puddle despite!

On these days giving up would be too easy,
You’d like to just run away.
And sometimes if you just take a step back,
It may be the right and only way.

But at a point you’ll have to decide for yourself,
If you’re going to let them win or loose.
This is the time that you’ll look deep inside,
And see if you have it within.

When you are ready to take that next step,
And show that you are ready to fight.
Avoid what you can and it’s okay if you can’t,
But no matter what happens, know that you’ll be alright.

My Dearest Sisters…

My dearest sisters, you are an guardian angel in disguise,

You are fantastic, intelligent, and wise.

Always helping me through the good and bad,

You are also the greatest friend I’ve ever had.

Though I’ve put our relationship through some hazy days,

You’ve been the sunlight that has shone in so many ways.

My only wish, it would be,

To provide you all that you have given me.

I will always be there for you no matter what,

If you need someone to talk too, I’ll always be there.

And though I tell you I can’t stand you,

You come back with, “That’s not true.”

We’ve had our fights,

Which lead to sleepless nights,

But in the end, I thank you so much.

My appreciation for you has no end.

You will always be my sister and my friend.


Hope you enjoyed this short poem and I wish you all a #HappyNationalSiblingsDay!

As Fragile And As Unique

Yes, our people have accomplished so many things.

They’ve discovered the wonders of our world,

Climbed the highest mountains,

Invented incredible things,

Even traveled to the moon and back.

But we can be fragile beings,

A moment of laughter can be driven to tears,

Broken by trust and fault,

Deceived by the most idiotic situations.

And we can be replenished,

Healed by love and trust,

Bandaged by the sand of times,

Recovered by the burden of family.

In the end,

We are fragile beings.

Broken by fault and fixed with love.


I love the idea of something beautiful, like a vase or a painting, that can be broken so easily. And while one might easily toss it aside, the others fixes it. The end result has more beauty than it did before because of someone’s talent, time and love.

Uniquely, I am showing the veracity of the human person. One can be so easily hurt and sad but can be easily fixed with love and trust. In the end, we are fragile beings. Broken by fault and fixed with love.

Hope you enjoyed this post, and stay tuned for more to come!
