A mermaid within

A mermaid within…

 I plunge into the vast ocean of life

How vast is it if I deeply dive?

Is it a blend of tears and smiles?

Or dreams and mysteries filled that ocean awhile?

As I pledge deeper and deeper into that secret filled stormy ocean;

My emotions quiver, my heart chills with numb emotions

Causing my heart ‘n soul to sink,

Restless I become but my body and mind struggling to reach the depth to link.


 Beneath the stormy ocean lays,

A little life; a calm mermaid, a truth

Untouched by the warm sunlight rays

Hands tied, legs roped of struggles

But still swimming in her own build-up ocean of love

And  possesses the shine of wisdom, incredible,

The wisdom of calm ocean;

Of hope and love behind the tears and dreams.

In the sparkling eyes of the mermaid, I find solace and exceptional truth within!

So after graduation, she studied literature and did her MPhil in English. She believes that the secret ingredient for spreading happiness is writing. So, whenever her energetic kids permit, she expresses her thoughts in words. Writing keeps her going and has given a new shape to her life.
