We are our own God

We are our own God We all have thorns,  that prick our conscience,  that poke our emotions,  that punctures our fragile ego.  We all have sticks,  to whip our confidence,  to smack our self-esteem,  to bash our beliefs.  Yet, we all have those arms, to hug ourselves and heal.  We all have the judgement to […]

The Sun in my soul

The Sun in my soul When the ice cold sadness solidifies,  and darkness takes over,  When  gloom and despair keep lurking on like a hangover.  When the heart hurts,  the mind menaces,  and the world ceases to cajole.  At that moment like a bliss,  Pulls me out of the abyss. Cheers me up and consoles,  […]

It is not perfect yet!

It is not perfect yet! Perfection is a disguise of insecurity,  that keeps you paralysed.  One more revision.  One final correction.  A few more tweaks.  Let me ask the critics. The plague that comes in any guise,  And creativity suffers a premature demise.   Perfection is a guise of procrastination. That keeps you inactive. “The […]

Project Life

Project Life Rowing the boat, in the middle of the ocean.  Calming the mind, taming the emotions.  Craving to express, dropping reservations!  Courage quivers, yet trusting my notions.  Weaving my dreams,  busting the distractions,  Finding the angels,  fighting the demons.  And all through this, endeavouring every day-  To stay human, being Suman – Being Suman

When someone asks who am I ?

When someone asks who am I ? I am an artist of the dark.  When the lights go out,  my mind fires…  I pick up my pen and write  poems, songs, notes, thoughts.  Connecting the dots…  between life and experiences.  Analysing the transients.  Expressing emotions. Shunning wrong notions,  and picking learnings  that life taught.  When […]

A little fear is fine

A little fear is fine A little fear is fine.  It doesn’t let you forget your goals.  And ensures your actions are aligned.  A little fear is needed,  till the unimportant stuff is weeded.  And your dreams are defined.  For that, a little bit of fear is fine ! – Being Suman

Goodbye to 2021

Goodbye to 2021 Fare well to the year, that has shown a strange kaleidoscope of life.  Taught many lessons.  Took many loved ones.  Transformed many perceptions.  A year that reminded me with a rude shock,  That we are tiny fragments in nature’s flock.  Destructible, ruinable, removable.  And yet another enforcement that your life is on […]
