Lost inside these thoughts of mine,

Thinking about those things you said,

And now all of it is coming true,

All that I secretly dread.

I’m lying to myself,

I know,I know,

The pain will come,

And then it will go.

I need to face the truth,


I need to find the strength,

Right now.

I need to live for me,

Yes me!

I may smile a lot,

But there’s a lot you can’t see.

There’s a lot I pretend not to feel,

A lot that I don’t tell,

I keep the hurt hidden away,

Inside my heart, it will dwell.




There’s no place like home : Daily Prompt

In response to today’s daily prompt :

If you had the opportunity to live a nomadic life, traveling from place to place, would you do it? Do you need a home base? What makes a place “home” to you?


Hmm…a younger me would have said No Way! After changing 9 schools I wanted to settle down in one place. I am in Mumbai now, one of the best cities in India and yes, if i had to settle somewhere, I would want to settle here.

But I have also realized that there are a lot of places I want to see in random order:

 – Bhutan – I celebrated my first birthday there but have zero memories of that place

 – Tibet – Because of the Dalai Lama

 – Machu Pichu, Peru – Do i need to even explain?

 – Japan – Oh it is the country of my dreams

 – Russia – Because i grew up on Russian folklore

Well those are just a few but yes, I wouldn’t mind being a nomad. And with my ability (no, i am not boasting, honest to God!) to make good friends wherever I go, I think I would do just fine. As long as I am not with strangers forever, even a new place can turn into a home.
