#7 Poetry : Petrichor Flowers

The tears Rained down my cheeks,

And the hard Ground came closer

As I fell down on the earth.

The Everlasting support seemed forever gone

The feelings all like Thunderous clouds,

The Warmth of Love, lost from Heart’s hearth.

 

The pair of Feet that walked away,

Away from me,never to come back again,

The footprints lost in the Pages of Time,

Left behind a shattered Heart

A Timeless sense of  eternal Sorrow

And the Fear, that you will never be mine.

 

The Winter froze the Ailing Heart,

As I locked away those Butterflies

In the Prison, bereft of Love.

The touch of Ice deadened the Heart.

The Feelings all ceased to exist.

The Fruits Bittersweet frozen in my Memory’s Grove.

 

Spring came with the Bountiful Promises,

Happiness and Joy all around

The Flowers of Passion bloomed blissfully,

But I crushed them down

And bit down upon my Bloody Teary Lips,

Putting away the Lonely Memories of Love, Carefully.

 

The Summer of Scorching Truth,

Burned the thawy Heart Raw.

With it’s Raging Fire it Danced away

Embers of Passion turned to Dust.

Now the Heart was Empty

Memories turned oblivious in the Tempest sway.

 

The Raindrops of the Euphoric rain,

Fell on the Scorched Heart

And sowed seeds of New Hopes.

Petrichor Flowers bloomed Again

And set free the Butterflies….The feelings

Danced to the Rhythm of Raindrops.

 

The tears came Again

They fell upon the Rivulets of the Earth

With New Dreams and Happiness

The Ground seemed Welcoming, Soft…

And embraced me with Blossomed Flowers.

The Innocent Heart Laughed…Devoid of Sadness..

There comes a time in Life when we lose hope , someone or something and the heart forgets to laugh..to enjoy..to live, at this time there comes a realization and situation..which finally teaches us to laugh again and to live again..Hope is what drives us forward..and there is always a silver lining waiting..we have to be patient for the right Time and Situation..and the Right Person.

 

 

#1 Poetry : PRETTY LITTLE HEART

Pretty little hearts get crushed all the time..

But will I walk on eggshells..

Or should I just be mime..

 

Three little birds sat on the branch…

And sang a song of desire..

Hear pieces of my heart  crunch…

 

The time we had in the bubble of bliss..

I loved it.. and you too

Never heard the serpent’s hiss..

 

I put on my blindfold and let time fly..

With moments precious..

Cherished each day by..

 

Let myself hear only the praises of love

How wonderful is the idea

Oh my heart’s dove..

 

Time is a strange thing so is the heart

It speared through us

Like a deadly dart..

 

Out of the bubble the World is still there

But where am I?

Like a branch set to wither..

 

Opened my eyes to a gloomy day

The day was bright

I wish you would say..

 

I wish you would come and hold me tight

As strong as you can

As will as you might

 

Cause pretty little hearts get crushed all the time..

I ceased to be happy..

And turned to a mime..

 

A strange thing is Time, the wounds will heal

I hear them say

But nothing do I feel

 

Life is cruel why does it have to go on?

I cursed it and scowled

But life went on

 

Life said to me please let time flow

The world is big

And I’ve many things to show..

 

Cause your little angel heart is pretty

Beats not only for you

But for the whole world you see..

 

Your heart maybe little or crushed now and then

But your will is strong

So let your life happen

 

Life that you see is a mere image

Don’t be selfish

Don’t waste it in a rage..

 

Don’t you now go into despair

When the time is right

You will find your pair..

 

Life that is yours you have to share

With people you love

For them you have to care

 

A taste of betrayal sets a spark within

Which tough and bitter

Is life’s little medicine..

 

Don’t be afraid to walk the path alone

Alone you maybe

But never forlorn

 

The three little birds harped on a song

A song of life

Of wisdom and a promise of long…

by Soumya Bunk

Well this is a poem for all the people who got betrayed in life not only a betrayal by a person but also betrayal by time or situation of life…

Dealing with Emotions 101

 

 

Emotion..damn that word sets so many things in motion inside me… yeah yeah emotion and “motion”.. I know .. that is very cliché.. but hey… the word does stir up things inside you..

So yes..lately I have been very emotional for sometime and a bit jumpy.. and yes relationships in  the battleground of Emotions take the first rank..and then comes family, responsibility,society…and yes pretty much everything that has to do with life. You just turn around every corner of life and stumble upon them..and that is a good thing..cause you no without emotions you become a rock and well also a certain thing that starts with the letter ‘B’ (five letter word..well sometimes vulgar and in some cases a compliment).

Some people say “Don’t let emotions cloud your judgement”.. but the real question comes down to the point that what are we judging, who are we judging ,does being the “Judgement Maker” help you to be a better person and will the judgement help you to be the person who you want to be? I know these sound as mumblings of a fool.. which I definitely am one, but I will try to simplify these questions that I have raised.

Everyday life is full of choices from the simplest ones like getting out of bed to the more tougher ones like should I break up with someone to have a better life..okay okay.. and a lot harder choices like future career aspects. Every choice is a judgement and every choice will someway bring about the emotional factor at some point.

Some people say  “I am very emotional”.. what does that mean even??? Does it mean that other people don’t have any emotions.. or does it demand that I can’t handle emotions so the people around me will have to handle it??

Every person has emotions.. for some it is superficial and for others it’s deep seated. Some people find life easier by displaying their emotions and others are comfortable by keeping it inside them.

Now coming back to the questions I raised earlier..”What are we Judging?” .. I think it is pretty simple.. by that I mean we should know that the thing which we are judging in life will help me to be happy with myself.. and so before judging that thing we should do research on “WHAT” we are judging..

Moving on to the next question “Who we are Judging?” This becomes tricky because now this kind involves other people and their emotions too, so the first Question that  needs clarification is that “Do I have the right to judge that person?” and then another question should be “Is that person’s emotions going to hurt me because of my judgement?”.I guess I have clarified the main Question with two new questions which are rhetorical obviously..

Sometimes judgements are harsh and interconnected with many people in our lives…and hence judgements not only sway our emotions but also the emotions of other people linked with it..But you should always judge the way which enables you to be true to yourself.. and in future you can tell yourself yes .. that judgement has really helped me to be the person I am..

I have refered a lot of judgements that deal with the Future tense in life.. and at this point someone might say that .. what the heck we don’t know the future and we cannot start consulting the astrological ambiguities to make a decision or judgement…yeah I definitely agree with that.. so by future I mean the future that you want your life to look like…

Coming to dealing with emotions…there are so many emotions which I really cannot fit into this article..the basics being  Happy and Sad.. and theres are infinite branching of emotions under these two… To deal with Emotions .. the only way is to face them… you have to face them.. and in facing them if you need someones help there is no problem you can ask for help and if you thing you yourself can tough it out then.. you should be confident that you can deal with them…

Sometimes it helps to display your emotions..and share it with people…sometimes your emotions touch someone else’s life and makes them happy…and sometimes you need to be alone to deal with them and let it out so that it does not affect others…

Some people might say that to deal with emotions get a hobby … work hard … distract your mind.. some even opt for the drugs(conventional and non-conventional).. but hey.. how are all these other things.. help you with emotions .. they are just other things which will momentarily help you to allude your emotions but they certainly won’t just erase them out..or..poof ..like magic your emotions vanish… they will just delay the process of facing your emotions…and on one fact I will agree that sometimes.. a bit of delay does help you to prepare ..for facing your emotions…

Just before I end this.. article.. the main thing behind dealing with emotions is all about right judgements and feeling better about yourself and being true and good to yourself.. remember.. it is you who rules your Life and it is you who will have to deal with consequences of your judgement..and yes your baggage of emotions ..you deal with that too.. Don’t run away from them..emotions help you to be a stronger and mature person and in the long run..they are what give shape to experiences in life..

Anyone with questions please ask me.. 😀

The Secret To Be Happy

Happy-Kids

 

I know I am just a 19-year-old boy.. and yes.. people would say I don’t have that much Experience to a write an Article on being Happy…. Some may even say.. that this child is quite Precocious..

Well firstly in my defence I would like to ask them .. Are they happy with all the experiences they have gained in life… I am sure most of them would say hat they are quite happy.. and well .. that makes me happy that they are happy…But happiness is quite a relative term.. and mostly … there are many experiences in life .. most of which turn out not be happy…

Happiness.. well to define it is very difficult.. cause for every unique individual.. there is a unique way for him or her to feel happy.. and it is very important that we as a human being ourselves should realize what that unique way is…and then well try to be happy following that unique way..

How to figure out this unique way??

Well.. go run a mile..That will help to clear your mind.. then meditate for sometime and focus your mind…and Ask yourself.. what makes you happy..and surf through the various experiences of your life…and then select the most suitable one…that brings a smile to your face immediately…

And if you are a 19-year-old like me.. then my friend.. you definitely need some more experiences in life.. to choose from a wide variety…

The World is definitely a cruel.. place..but remember youown a place in it and you can make that as your happy space..

Lets talk about Person related happiness…. Yup.. I am talking about the LOVE THING.. I must say everyone should experience the feeling of being in love and being loved by someone… Finding the right person is very difficult and…yes very very difficult…and once you find the right person…it becomes more difficult..So overall.. finding eternal happiness in the path of love is quite difficult.. But if you find it…you are one of the luckiest person alive.. And remember loving a person is not essentially always being physical.. you know I mean…cough cough ..SEX..

For being Happy in everyday life.. I can tell you.. running helps a lot.. it clears your mind..

Also.. people like to engage themselves in different hobbies…Hobbis are quite a good way to find happiness…Being social and having friends.. is quite essential to be happy..Cause one thing is for Sure that when you are Happy .. you cannot be happy alone… You share your happiness and it is definitely multiplied…

Being Happy is a state of mind…and well no one can teach you to be happy.. yes all those Saints and Sannyasis.. that people run after.. definitely cannot teach you that…they can only show you the path to happiness…well I am trying to do that too…

Concentrate on yourself and focus…Try loving yourself.. and definitely you will be happy…

Try to ignore trivial things like EGO… well it’s not a trivial thing.. but anyways I hope you get what I want to say…. but remember never give away your self-respect…

If you say to yourself that you want to stay happy.. then shoot down all the obstacles in the path of your happiness… Please don’t shoot down any person.. or animal.. or any living being cause that might get you some Jail time.. which I can definitely promise is not happy…

Go out in the world and experience.. and try to be happy… even with a few happy experiences.. you can be happy in life.. you don’t have to grow up to a ripe old age.. to be happy..

Please do criticize.. and put in your comments…
