Colorful rainbow spread its wings,
Obvious joys sprinkled abound,
Love in all its glory seen near,
Omnipresent faith renews itself,
Reminiscence of good times it is,
Soulfully stays the moment I cherish.

This is Acrostic form of poetry.

Mental Heath

Murmuring in my solace,
Evenings often dark,
Non existent faces,
Tumours of panic,
At that inner fear,
Longing to fly away.

Heaving sighful jitters,
Ears sweat, hand shaky,
Amidst the support, I fall,
Love I get, from all,
To conquer anxiety, everyday,
Happens now, I win often.

This is an Acrostic Poem.

P.S.: Anxiety and stage/presentation fright has been my biggest obstacle to anything ever. I would shake the worse in interviews and viva voice and my words used to freeze, hand and feet sweat and I used to ruin all my preparations. Now I think the whole process of loosing confidence were to be blamed. Then, one day, I took a call, took consultation and decided to take it in my stride. I had issues travelling in subways too at a time. Blame it a bit on genes too. Luckily, I conquered step by step. In my doctorate defense, I was jittery at start, but then thanks to the preparation, emerged super victorious. Then, took care of interviews too. Initially in my career I had issues for it involved lectures. I still have, like all people do, but then manage it all without those panic attacks on most days. Now there are days when I lecture five hours in a day and my students don’t see even a bit of sweat. Lately, my supervisor said your confidence is growing and so I feel the anxiety is going. So, if anyone suffers from any mental ailment, never shy from consulting doctors, that is the first step to a happy future.

Full Moon

Furnishing a glow,
Utopian at times,
Look of eternity,
Loving nostalgic gaze.

Meanings hidden beneath,
Obvious bold scars,
Omnipresent every place,
Nailing life sagas.

This is Acrostic Form of Poetry.

P.S.: Today was a blood moon night and the moon here was just plainly very beautiful, even though it appeared white.

Be Gentle With Yourself


Beware of the negativity you carry
Expel the pain you induce deep.

Give yourself benefit of doubt
Even angels fall, at bad times
Never question your own ability
Tattered might be the soul
Love your self a little more
Even when you might fail.

Whimper and then conceal the tears
Instead pledge to win the road
The spirit defeats the impossible
Heal yourself with that smile.

You are the hope, I see
Overcome all the obstacles
Utter no bitterness, just believe
Rest assure, positivity does win
Suffering are just about to end
Enemies allege a lot, don’t hear
Live in the moment, I propose
For gentleness always win

This is an acrostic form of poetry.
