Only Shadow Stayed with me ! – A Poem

Forgot to smile with life

Eyes don’t have tears left

Mind kept throbbing inside

Trying to convey in vain

Death came closer as I feel

Only shadow stayed with me

Kept creeping in to my soul

Even dreams saying bid to me

Wandered alone up and down

In lonely streets of life, I know

Days turned to dark nights

Only shadow stayed with me

Feet felt cold when I start walking

Rain drops fall to write stories

The footprints imprint I saw

Get washed away in rain as I create

One life not enough to learn mysteries

Only shadow stayed with me

Mind burn in fire leaving pain

Looking up skies move farther

Who will give wings to reach high

Just like arrows pain strike the heart

Hoping to bloom like a flower again

Only shadow stayed with me

Cristie U, Reviewer
This memoir captured the emotions that author felt when moving to a new country perfectly. He had to contend with strict parents, little money, and other issues and captured those moments brilliantly in this fish out of water memoir. The honest writing makes it easy to empathize with him.

I am excited at the same time speechless to get a 5 star review from Cristie.

Making Mistakes

We all make mistakes in our life. Realizing it, is important. I have see many people who never realize that they have made mistakes. I consider them as failures.

It is human nature. There is no one in the world who have never committed a mistake. We write exams. We make mistakes and score less marks. What we do next? We try to study a little harder and try not to make the same mistakes. Same here in life. When we make mistakes. We need to work harder to correct it.

Repeating same mistakes over and over. Then, ignore it. We will not get anywhere in our lives. That is sad. Life is beautiful. We need to enjoy to the fullest. For that we need to realize first we are human. Even Gods make mistakes. There are many stories about mistakes done by gods, especially with Hinduism. It just shows us that we are not supreme. 

Today I am happy. I realize my mistakes and I do admit them. When I was not admitting it, there was a lot of commotion in my life. Now I am free. I also come to a sense that I have accomplished everything in my life. There is nothing more to achieve or go for. I am content. This realization made my existence here so light. 

My book Come travel with me got some good reviews. At the same time I did get very bad ones as well. I am thankful to both of the reviews. I am writing a novel now. This reviews gives me more enthusiasm to write more. Critics with purpose makes one to improve. I also got some reviews where there is no real purpose to it. Those type of reviews are there just to dis respect the effort we writers take in producing the book. 

At the end of the day, We all should realize we are people. We make mistakes. We need to correct it and live a happy life. Thanks every one for reading this. Please share or leave comments if you like. Also check out my book Come travel with me. It is available from amazon sites. 

Thank you all.
