A tribute to my grandma

Motionless you laid
on the hospital bed
You looked as calm as summer sea
As peaceful as sleep

Your life was full of challenges
and numerous obstacles
Yet, you overcame them all
like a pinch of salt

You never sulked
You never doubted
You were as meek as dove
You never questioned Him above

A fruitful life you’d led
you had no regrets
The memories you’d left behind
remains forever in our mind

A beautiful rainbow we saw
on the day of your cremation
Symbolised your blessings for all
your children, grandchildren and next generation

Our dearest grandma,
We love you
and we are grateful
for everything that you had done for us.
❤ Rest in peace, our beloved grandma ❤

New Found Peace


Sitting at the edge of the rock
Holding your ashes
Peace and tranquility
I feel internally

Watching the water
Carries you down the river
It brings along my pain
So that I may live again

Love and hatred for you
Though more of the latter
I pen it all down in this paper
Folds into a boat and tosses into the river

No more abuses
No more sufferings
Everything has ended
When your heart stopped beating

They said I couldn’t let you go
But they would never know
The way I’d lived each day
Was a living body in decay

Now…As the wind blows
I know there’s hope
For a better tomorrow
And peace overflows

No inspiration!

Today, is a day with zero inspiration.

A day, where I lost all motivation.

Not a single clue…

I’m seriously doomed…

Time for a left brain to right brain negotiation.

Just Jot It January 21: Mittens


My little fingers hide

In my mom-knitted mittens.

My little hands look like balls of yarn

Attracts all the little kittens.
