Alone-Megha Sood


The Insanity of life keeps you busy
the craziness of it keeps you safe
mood swings pace you up
everyday grind keeps you in shape
This mad race and topsy-turvy life
trying to fit that last piece of the puzzle
stuck at the corner
standing out in a crowd
Oh!you have so many faces
you know, you have to keep up that facade
that loneliness which shatters the soul
the emptiness which keeps filling up your soul
till you are brimming to the surface
and God forbid if you ever pour
cause someone is watching
you can be really sure
you think you are;
But you are never alone!!!

Mirror, Mirror- Michael Erickson

Look me in the eye,

Yes, you’re own eyes.

Consider your face,

With its flaws and blemishes.

Hold up those hands,

Each one a mechanism of change.

Look beyond the mortality,

What do you see?

An empty space?

A closed door?

I see a filled room,

An open passageway.

A brilliant soul.
