It’s time to unwrap This self ordained incubation has kept her protected, But this scared self created space is also isolated, Between many personas that is demanded of her day, This one she plays in hiding, This space of solace, It’s time to claim it’s presence, And arrange in order of preference, The timeline of...

It takes a while to forgo the dichotomy of good vs bad. Embrace each bit and show it light. Make a choice. Discernment in Self awareness is a choice. Make friends with the shadow and light will come find. You will falter because you are alive.
Hey you, my friend, Let’s lift this trend, Let’s raise your spirits high, I conquered my shame, But yours is pulling mine, It’s pulling and thirsting and trying to come back, This gift of god, shines on your soul, You washed it off, Or brush it off, Hey you, my friend, Let’s pick up stride,...

If I could choose from the legacy of stars afar Who would I choose but, THE SUN, For it’s purpose ethics are impeccable, Illuminates everything it touches, Dressed in its resplendent self- worth, Disciplined for it’s cause, Nourishing life and aspirations, just because, Wants all to grow and glow, If you grew greedy, you would...

The clouds hurled in, And the thunder gurgled, Today, they ask you to stay out of its way But there’s never ending delusion of chores There’s race and charts for pace Being someone and getting somewhere The thunder and the clouds thrathened They will whisk and wash your ego away Truce brings dead poets and...

Walk me to the moon, In my brightest pearly dress, Staring not at each other But the love of us that encompasses this glorious night The soft breeze spoke of your hidden words of prayers for me It tapped me lightly and whisked away some worries You, me and reflection of this round ball of...

Slow breath, Measured stride, Wall of caution, Flight in stride, A little push, A friendly smile, An encouraging friend, A gift to confide, Watch then, As we rise, We rise and propel to glide, Watch with calm presence, As destiny takes flight. -Rupika Moitra

Here is my effort to keep it chaotic and real. Two corresponding incidents of life: Driving out of my... Continue Reading →
Two parallel roads of life; A road of shortcuts, Curtailing every hurdle, negating all that's diffcult, Road of quick gratifications, Quickly satiating yet quickly forgotten, Reaching the shores, Something seems- left 'Unexplored' The long road is full of rubble, wait and struggle, Yet, it promises, dreaminess of dreams untold, Walking at it, I surrender to...

A beautiful cage: mind The whole world sucked in small nests, A great rewind, much needed reset, Lot of time to reflect, No where to go to and deflect, In dreams and hope, The gilded cage will open, The key stays still locked inside, What we had to learn, What still we cannot find, lean...
