Letting Go

I freeze my fingers because
it is not the reason
why you should hold on,
I wave you goodbye
and think on your own
you may find what life is.

I do not know a bit
how fulfilling any moment
can be, but here is
the bulb that I sow
in the early spring and
the fear of winter deep within me.

Of the flowers, one of
last spring I kept them
because it was the only
surviving, but with
lesser petals by
the end of season.

Before that, I never
noticed it could be
so close, folded in a paper
in the wooden box for year long,
among its many faces who smiled
and went away all fine
in its shadow.

The years ripe again
and with little fingers
I find your way, a new one
and enjoy this circle of life
where I am baby again.

The lake as it is stood beautiful without a reflection of clouds or sky, bounded by sitting platform which one reminds of comfort and invigorating view. Otherwise undulating with one so serene, from the uppermost platform the eye travels from this shore to last filled with hues. The poem has to be born and "For No…

What You are - Defining it

When we are jostling with different questions regarding our social behavior for bigger issues such as women empowerment, social life, I ponder why there is such prejudice. Are we responsible? Not the absurdity to look down at any woman with constricted views of household or community values is deriding us of important decisions and self assertion. 

When in society be local or abroad, we confirm to certain beliefs. We carry with us certain traditions which are well respected and if not, can be collaborated with certain evidence that are acknowledged given a case. Certain new theories are often forming and laws are often modified to include the evolving practices anywhere for men and women alike.

Thus, what are these entities. Having an ideology such as Gandhism can help a humanitarian do job anywhere in the world. Confirming to professional etiquette, the diseases are easily diagnosed with exception of long-formed personal habits. Vast experience in certain field or valuable upbringing c…
