I was just a child when I saw the blade
Glinting in the darkness, enchanting me,
Calling me by my name
Calling out to me to see.
In my teenage years, I’d run my fingers
Along it’s beautiful steel,
Entranced and in raptures
Within the visions it showed me.
In youth, the skies darkened
As I lifted my chin to face them all
Still unsure about my dreams.
Mom, you are a gem of a person who always desires to fly high,
You bourne to raise a child, nurture a family always with a smile.
When the sky is the limit, you must shine every minute,
You are the woman of her words who never lie,
Don’t you think you also deserve to fly high?
Your work is never done!
You are the woman among women, always with a high bun.
'AUM' portrays everything…
From the beginning! right up until the end!
It gets more prominent when you realize the word 'AUM' yourself,
In your past, present & destiny 'AUM' aligned with healing intents.
'AUM,' an amalgamation of all the sounds…
That Mother Nature has to offer.
Like a treasure trove,
Let’s hear a tale which is both congenial and bitter,
My Grandmother said,” About a person who was both a miscreant and a victor”,
Nonetheless, he was definitely a fighter,
Let’s hear a tale about a man with chains around his neck
“I will serve my nation till my last breath”, he had once said looking in the mirror,
Romancing My Phone

By Anita Britto, Auckland
I stand today calm and strong at this very spot
Where my mother stood years ago – worried and distraught
Driving after curfew hours – and at breakneck speed
Stopped by soldiers on the way who saw her infant bleed
The mind of a teen
These are crucial years they say
One that is tough but good for me anyway
My night-light’s flickering
And I’m buried deep beneath
Assignments and details
No-one seems to see, or hear
But only if they looked down and heard
My cries, of longing and pain….
Oh, I wish to run free
Sit with my friends by the beach
Gather round a campfire
Demons and Crowns
Do you know what it’s like
To have monsters in your head,
Whispering with each step of yours,
“Are you sure you’re right?”
Do you know that feeling
Of just having to succeed
Of having no option to fail
When you just cannot break through the glass ceiling?
Do you even know what it is
To have the demons in the back of your head
