Poems, Thoughts


how does it feel like to have renewed faith
a kind that reminds us that it is only us who is in charge of our own lives
whatever fate may be we decide and let be
now I take this oath to remind myself
that I am my existence
that this humanity is my strength and You my hope
and I remind the little one down the street
that I see the star in her eye
because she did too

– Parveen Maghera


The Admirer

… blending into the background
with your presence around me
forces my innocent soul
to surrender itself
into a whirlpool of emotions
every electric current
sends sensations to my brain
persuading me to emerge confident 
and kiss you in a second
but it all falls into a matrix
a simulation no better done
than my fantasy mind…
