She wore masacara to hide her fears
She had to be strong and suppress tears
She wore the bangles to remind herself
that her wings were clamped with threats
She adorned herself with a necklace
that would tame her into calmness
Around her head she draped the silk
and taught herself to live with guilt
She wore a pair of silvery anklets
which found peace in diving into sacrifices
Yet they called her a weakling
A burdensome liability than a human being
Her calmness was mistaken for fragility
For no reason she was made to feel guilty
Rendered to be blamed as a scapegoat
Her sacrifices narrated hypocritical anecdotes
A breath of freedom she wished to embrace
We bothered her with expectations of st...
"What beauty lies within the skin,
Says the world by looking in.
Underneath, hides something more which the world had never seen.
Such darkness fills a heart of gold;
Cuts of sorrow fill the seems.
While hurtful words replace the spot,
were loved ones used to hold.
Locked away to say the least;
Why such beauty could love such a beast."
we follow paths of knowledge,
searching for purpose
in the desert of our hopes,
in the forest of our fears
we are tangled up in blue skies,
bewitched by the taste of crisp air
and the soft flush of sunrise
that comes after the fall of night
we trade these autumn musings
for early winter whispers
we summon the silent strength within us,
determined to find the answers we seek
because there is beauty in survival
there is magic in finding your own way

Trapped in my mind
And tangled in time
But between breaths
Of fear and weariness
There are sighs
At the sight
Of the apple blossoms
And their inexplicable beauty
In the shimmer
Of fading sunlight. JD

Some used to be,
her feels defies,
In those aquamarine twin eyes,
My devil, My vice...
I am gathering warmth
stolen from concrete
from the last
sea level days
I intend to bring you light
in every way that I know how
it is so
how the minutes
seem to stretch
those same deceptive seconds
that pass in blinks
when you are near enough
for our fingers to intertwine
we have built a bridge
between your life
(you are a wonder)
and I wish to
always be a part
of thoughts carried with
the water flowing under
and what's (to) come
The Earth’s wonder and beauty and mystery, it's only meant to serve as a great cosmic magnet pulling us to our source. Their is an engagement with the Sun as our eyes see you
simplified by distance Into an origin,
Your petalled head of flames
Heat is the echo of your gold that is absorbed to give us power and wisdom through the minds eye.
My solar parent with a suspended lion face.
Your illumination spilling at the centre of an unfurnished sky.
How still you stand, And how unaided. Single stalkless flower you pour unrecompensed.
As we admire, you exist openly. Our needs hourly climb and return like angels. Unclosing like a hand,
You give forever.
I am a spiritua...
Where there is color, there is light. And where there is light, there is possibility.
Explore the space around you to let the light shine upon you.
Why everytime ability of girl is compared to a boy... Why she can't be a hero of her own world. Why everytime a girl has yo proved her self till the end of her life still she will not get respect like a boy. In one side we are worship and admire small girls, on the other hand same girl is compared to a boy and getting restriction from the same society.... Why always we have to prove.....
In search of me ❤️
All around me
In vibrant colors
That blanket the Earth
Calling to the world
To come out
And bask in the beauty
That she created. JD

Thou shall not be afraid to sail..
Thou shall have courage...
To fall into the torment
and yet emerge as a winner
Against a tidy wave that mere thinks,
It is the mightiest...
Losing My Hues...
I wish I could turn around,
I just ain’t too proud,
Feeding my mind whirl,
hues of my precious,
I'm afraid it was a circle,
Knot around my heart,
Ceiling, it's root,
My debts all due,
And yet I let my mind,
Lose my hues,
Frozen in my vein,
Is a reason ,
searching for my traces in every cause,
Sprinkling my bleeds
I spewed my dark,
A slow death in patches of purple blue,I've let my mind,
Lose my hues,
Riches or scars
Scrapes or sharps
Cold and the precipitate in it's chilly dark,
None compares to those strolls along unseen lanes,
N why wouldn't I scream?
For things I did were exactly what I didn't want to do,
I've let my mind...
A change in the air
You would allow
To step out of
The endangered cage
That holds it hostage
So you can witness
That fall brings. JD

Success and Love
Morning sunshine is here
With sun rays coming through the window
And she is sitting thinking about the life she want
As she knows, she is creative soul
With the stamina to do hard work
But when she puts down her thoughts
In her brown velvet vintage journal
She cries and feel the pain that she have
From the past years but no one to hear
Or understand her. She is alone with her demons
And bearing it all with great courage. Her Mother,
Father & Sister tries to change her mind but she is determined
To be the One Girl from Her City To Be That Beauty Business Babe
She has that audacity about her that only comes to people after two vodka shots.
