To Beauty and Butterfly


I’ve long waited for my wings to spread
Sing in the dew as the morning breaks
As the promise of a new day blooms
Peeping through the crack of my sealed cocoon

In the protective shield I was kept
From a contented caterpillar feeding only in greens
Forcefully wrapped to the moth of pupal casing
Resisting to change my order of things

Seeking refuge from cushion of leaves
Entwining to vines, refusing to surrender
Weakened by cuts, bruises and blisters
Until an end has come, there was no way but bend

Outside my child the storms will come
The strength you built is just a mirage
Whatever I am taking has a great reward
When you completely surrender to my perfect plan

You will resist for you are made that way
You will break your legs and commit mistakes
But when I am your shelter” He promised,

last night i gave up my wedding dress

It has been a long winding path

Looped and knotted at every curve

The birth of The Queen

The awakening of the bitch

The sin of Eve

Running, traipsing with a herd of sheep

Oh boy, did I regret?

Cried for what I lost and missed?

Definitely NO

It’s time to fall in love again --- with myself

when you feel the walls you built shattered under your feet


and you are clothed with nothing but fear
exposed and naked beyond the surface

He said:
Be still and know that I am God.
 Psalm 46:10

dip it!

Forest’s mom said that ‘Life is like a box of chocolate…’ but to those who delight in the sound of the crunch than the high of the sugar ‘Life is also like a bag of chips’.

1. Until you open it, you won’t taste it. If you don’t live it, you wouldn’t enjoy it.

2. It can be made more special by an assortment of dips. Want it hot, chunky, beefy or with guacamole? Even with a cup of melted chocolate if you wish. A lot like your existence, made more colourful by the layers of experiences.

3. It is stamped with manufacturing and end dates. Aren't we? And the ‘best before years’ are always before the expirations dates.

4. It comes with nutritional facts. You know what it’s made up, you know what it lacks. Stop whining for what is missing, life offers options to make it interesting. 

5. It is best enjoyed with a glass of ice-cold Coke. Makes it more health hazardous when abused. So some pleasures and the habits gone bad - dangerous.

6. When it comes to flavour, you always prefer the natural than the artificial. The breasts, the eye lashes and the friends. And you know when they are fake.

7. Packaging is advertising, even the name you are called prompts the recall. But still the character is the real deal. 

8. You savour each morsel, you don’t rush it. It’s not chips eating contest, so is life not a race. 

9. Life does not end with a cracked chip. A serving is only perfect in pics. You have a choice to disguise, hide or flaunt it before the camera clicks. But you have to live with it.

10. Grind the dippin’with friends, with loved ones. Simply, sharing makes life more fun.
