The only control

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…

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.

Teach your daughter this:

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'.

Hold peace today

Today ensure

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.

This weekend…

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.
Be GENUINE!

On this day

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.
Choose well.

Colours of Fall

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

Being just me

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
