Love Is Simple

Love is a warm soup In repeated loop A hot tea left for you at the table  When you are rushing Through the morning fable Love is when you are  So eager to meet That you don't mind Getting all wet in the rain Or a splash of mud That stays on your dress like an annoying stain Love is when even Though you cannot see You just can feel What's happening Love is a drop of sweat A lengthy duet A nice outfit that Was sewed to fit in  No matter the shape or size  Love is a song  That takes you back To where it all began Or where the massacre ended Love is a touch That says so much Love is a fetch That runs alongside Love is a nest Of nurture and share The constant urge for you to prepare Love is a silent long walk With your grandfather While he keeps doing things at a pace And somehow passes you their trace With his silent gaze  Love is a conversation With your father Who narrates you a story From their closet filled with memories Love is a kiss on your forehead While you sleep Love is t

The Girl Who Refuses To Cry

She takes a step up..
Each time she trips.
Falling down doesn’t..
Bother her.
Making a fearless grunt..
Uneven and blunt.
Turns her face..
While she gets distracted by her untied lace.
Bending down doesn’t stop her.
Getting breathless..
As she chokes.
A sprinkle of pain down her shin provokes..
Turning back doesn’t evoke her.
Finally in the crowd..
She pulls her standing proud.
I did it shouting loud..
As she chuckles droplets of tears.
Spotting her mother smiling at while she cheers.
Suddenly getting darker..
Clouds felicitate the embark.
Her feet
giving away the spark.
As she wants no further..
Her shoes are no weeper..
Dozing off like a light sleeper.
Waking up to the instant dawn..
Like a truimphant swan.
Abused yet outrageous was her try..
Cause this girl refuses to just sit and cry.
*Dedicated to all the young girls who have been abused for years and have fought against the odds or still fighting their battles alone.A salute to your bravery.
