Refuse to be run over by circumstances In every difficult situation in life, the only way to be in charge is to control your mind,control your tongue and control your actions.
It is smarter to be more in control of yourself than to try and control others. Silencing the mind and overcoming negativity, overthinking and judgemental presumptions, are all necessary in trying times. In the end, its all about this: You can't control others, you can't control the world, so just learn to control yourself. The power lies within.
Hold your voice until you need to use your roar
Raising sons to respect and care for women Dear Mothers,
Hope you empower women And as mothers proudly Raise sons as gentlemen, Charming, kind, Mindful, possessing Real integrity. Men who are praised For absolute chivalry. They hold doors, Happily help in chores, Make their women Feel like royal ladies. Mothers, whose sons, Are their dears, And raise gentlemen For others' darling daughters: And their sons know the lady's real worth, Settle for nothing less As they walk this earth. You, who give birth, You do recall: You Rock the cradle, You Rule the world!
Gender roles have to be replaced by ‘Life skills’ for one and all.
You are empowered
If your bank account is surplus and sufficient, Your house help is Regular and efficient, If you are well-trained, On raising your profit quotient, And no one dares to Stop or question, Your spending decision. You are empowered If you walk to work Without being taunted Or made to feel guilty To not first give birth; But instead encouraged To up your own worth, And decide if you are Ready to bring A life on earth. You are empowered, If you have your Own house and Medical insurance, Not empty promises, or false ‘future’ assurance. You are empowered, If you are not distracted To ‘appease’ as An object of beauty, Rather raised with self -defence skills And busy raising Your immunity. You are empowered If your effort is Rewarded, Your results applauded, But most of all, Your smile is tear-proof, You enjoy being Your truly unique self, Not pressured to be A colour, a height, A certain weight, That you need To ‘improve’. You are not empowered If you are obsessed, To be accepted by others, or Give yourself up, Just to be 'approved'.

Words are not flung, No heart is with Harsh words stung. A thousand splendid Truths we realise When we observe silence, And choose to be wise. Affirm to yourself once, twice, thrice, Words are over-priced, If at all I speak, Only goodwill And blessings, My words ought to Either spread or seek. Words are meant to be In prayers sung, Silence is My mother tongue, Quiet is My other tongue.
Speak only if you can improve upon the silence and add real value by uttering words.
Am I paying attention in creating my legacy? Pay attention to how
Aligned are your thoughts with your words and deeds. Pay attention to how Refined are your thoughts, words and deeds. Pay attention to how Sincere are your thoughts, words and deeds. Pay attention to how Positive are your thoughts, words and deeds. Pay attention to Who you are. Who are you? You are your thoughts, words and deeds. Pay attention to yourself. Be: Aligned. Refined. Sincere. Positive.
Good Morning Make peace,
Decide to deliver The promise. With ease, Say what matters, Let go grudges, Just release. Choose to cherish The choice of ease The choice of peace The choice of release Choose. Have an easy day. Good Morning.
The charisma of colours
The palette's overtures Leaf-falling reminders Nature's gestures All welcomes End in departures. I have breathed Since 47 13th Octobers, Who knows, Maybe ordained A few 'mores', To accomplish A few endeavours And complete A lot more chores. Here's October With 31 days galore, Maple leaf carpets Welcoming 2021's Last quarter.
Collecting life in moments
I choose, I decide No I didn't prioritize
Folding clothes Cooking House keeping. I wrote verses. My apologies For fresh fruit, Salad meals And just washed Unfolded, unironed Clothes. I deliberated Over lyrics, Rhythm, rhymes And word tricks. To sweetly suggest Being a woman I can multi-task Comes with a risk: I need my rest, My 'me-time', To hum my rhyme. What I can, What I will, What I won't I decide, You don't.
Me-time is MINE
