It’s Harsh – ‘coz it’s The Reality
It’s Brutal – ‘coz it’s The Truth
It’s Blunt – ‘coz it’s Fearless
It’s Not Sojourn, It Doesn’t Care!
A Cruel Whiplash – Hard-hitting and Upfront
A Strike of Thunderbolt – Instant Destruction
A Naked Flame – Burns You to Ashes
Denial Is Not An Option – When Reality Hits!

They say it’s darkest
Just before the dawn
What they don’t say is
The night will be long
I hear distant voices
Nothing do I see
Soft halos and hushed noises
Buzzing in a playful spree
You need not fear the dark
For it’ll lead you to light
To bask in the sunshine
You need to survive this dark night

I wait for the rain everyday
Praying day and night
For the skies to break open
And pour down with its might
I sit on my wall, waiting
Humming and singing
My heart skips a beat when
I hear the first rain falling
I jump, I thump, I fall
I hop; I skip, I sing in joy
I’m happy & insane
When I walk under the rain
Soaking in the pouring rain
I stop and catch my breath
And gasp at the golden hue
Sprinkled on the greens n blues
I glide, I swing & I fly
I jump up to touch the sky
With the trees & grass I sway
When the sun shines on a rainy day

Sometimes there are no words to express what a broken heart feels. Silent tears are all you have.
Lost hopes, lost dreams Lost all the loved ones Sitting by the grave… No prayer on lips But a dead flower in hand Cracked mud beneath the feet Bloodied cloths, torn shoes Dried tears on scarred cheeks Starved body, empty eyes… Staring into nothingness Brutal yesterday, cruel today Snatched away his happiness Once was safe in mother’s arms Sitting by her grave today “Why do people fight ma? Why do they kill?” “Peace will come son, don’t be scared” “I fear ma, I am scared” “Have faith my child, don’t give up the hope” Bygone is the caring voice Familiar sounds replacing it Sounds of guns & explosions Sounds of war everywhere Took away a father yesterday Deprived a baby of its mother’s being Shook a 7-year olds world today Crashing everything on its way down Leaving him with nothing but lost faith!! ©Yogini Patil, Published on short-story.net
You’re the innocent smiles You’re the purest love You’re the shining stars On dark cloudy nights You’re the beautiful flowers You’re the rainbow of happiness You’re the spring blossom You’re the moonlit sky We’re sorry for what happened to you We’re sorry you faced the hurt & pain We pray to God to keep you safe Give all the love & care you deserve Rest in arms of loving angels Rest in peace, little ones!!

Let all the evil be gone, gone forever. Taking away all the reasons & effects with them – far away.
Baat yeh nahi ke hum kitne roothe hai
Baat yeh hai ke aapne kitna manaya hai?
Baat yeh hai ke aapne kitna bhula diya?
Baat yeh hai ke aap kitna muskuraye ho?
Baat yeh hai ke aapne kitna sambhala hai?
Baat yeh hai ke aapne kitna savara hai?
It was so painful to see Goldy dead… it meant she’ll never swim around in my fish-bowl.. it meant i wont see her ever again.. it meant she was gone forever.. it meant Tango had lost his partner – forever – A loss just irreplacable !! Just couldnt help thinking, if am so hurt and disturbed, what Tango must be going thru’?? So what if Tango is a fish, the feeling of loss of partner’s life would still be the same for Tango as well right?
God!! That feels so sad, so terrible, so hurt!! Till date couldnt stop thinking over these questions, which i know will always remain unanswered.
