The Fighter

I liked her on the first sight,

I knew that she’s a fighter,

Watched her pick herself,

Face the world bold!

Her smile was humble,

Yet was heavy and fragile,

Her eyes never smiled,

A mystery unresolved!

Had she lost someone?

May be but that’s sad,

For a woman so young,

To walk all alone!

George and Mama Pig

He calls himself, “George”,
Piles up all the pillows,
And jumps from the sofa,
Rolling on the floor giggling!

My pulse becomes abnormal,
As I wish to burn the pillows,
But his tantrums warn me,
And keep myself composed!

Granny pig has no patience,
And guts to watch George,
Grandpa pig is horrified,
Yet, keeps an eye on him!

Mommy pig had a long day,
Watching over him play,
Falls asleep before bedtime,
Awakes hearing,”Mom!”.

The Plight

Do you suffer from a loveless life?
You are not alone in this world,
As no one is happy but miserable,
Even if they are blessed with love.

Cut of the expectation after a point,
And focus on how to live this life,
For you may not get this life again,
Stop chasing after love that’s fake.

You can’t undo the wasted time,
Waiting for finding the lost love,
But do yourself a favor forgetting,
The past that’s worthless and nil.

His intoxicating smile!

My heart swells at his smile,

A welcoming smile seeing me,

After his school hours is worth,

Being a mother is a priceless gift.

Is that the love that I longed for,

Years wasted in loneliness,

And like the one lost in a desert,

Found some water, hugged him!

I know that I found love in him,

As I wish to be with him eternally,

For he is like a beautiful flower,

With fragrance that intoxicates me!

Don’t be too good!

Like a faithful dog, don’t wait,

For the one that doesn’t know,

That you are worth much more,

Than the way you are weighed!

Let them get the same bitter taste,

They gave you as sweet memories,

That are nothing but tasteless ashes!

Grieve not for you are all alone,

As you have always been lonely,

Despite the mute, unwilling company,

That made you live in silence forever.

Ignoring you like a silent predator,

Is the weapon used against you,

Fear not to use the same weapon,

To show some sample of cruelty.

Fly alone

None will go till grave with you,

So get used to walk or fly alone,

You may get to know people,

On the way of life journey!

Keep them as pals for the time,

But don’t cling to them for life,

For you may die inside if alone,

But can fly high if you fly alone.

One has the right to ditch you,

Accept it with much courage,

As you have to let them go,

For love must be spontaneous!

A Thin Line Between Feeling Down and Being Depressed

Life is full of ups and downs. If your low mood persists for days and months, then it is depression.

The reasons for depression may vary from one to another. Not everyone can overcome failure, loneliness, broken marriage, losing the loved ones, work and financial pressure. It is believed that depression or behavioral disorders are caused by complicated chemical imbalance in brain.

How to identify depression?

  • Sleeplessness
  • Self-Pity
  • Loneliness
  • Emotional pain
  • Panic attacks for petty issues



Persistent sleeplessness is the first symptom of depression. Your will be a night owl, either on the internet or pondering over simple issues you faced.


You may start lamenting your worries to any stranger if the person is polite and gives an ear to your stories. You may start comparing your life with others and feel hatred towards everyone. You will not be satisfied inspite of having everything you wanted.


There will be a bunch of friends and family members in the room, yet you may feel lonely. You will not cherish what you have. You pick on your spouse or family members for your failure and unhappy condition.

Emotional pain

You may feel tired and worn-out all the time. Your thoughts will surround only about your life. You may express regret of your existence.

Panic attacks for petty issues

Your heart will be heavy most of the time. You may be scared and lack confidence in any situation.

If you have these basic symptoms, it’s time to see a Neuropsychiatrist and get some help.
