What can be done when faced with crossroads,
What can be done when soul doesn’t glow
What can be done when shadows follow you
What can be done when they just won’t go.
What can be done when the world stands still,
And yet there’s a beaming chaos in mind
What can be done to pacify the heart
What can be done so that life again shines?
Prayer, yes prayer is what we need
To find the answers from deep within
To open the channels of love and light
And to let the soul shine again so bright!
The things we don’t say,
are etched within us,
deep deep away.
They need to be released
We must find a way.
But our dear God, works with plans of his own,
To let us go into the depths of unknown
and sometimes we sink,
We surrender – accept the fate.
But still a voice inside us,
tells us to keep going,
To believe in god’s plans,
His love and his doings,
His magic to unfold,
The voice tells us to wait.
That little voice within, Is called “Keeping the Faith”.
Wait for the sunshine on your darkest of days,
Wait till the morning breeze touches your face,
Wait till the moonlight bathes you at night,
Wait for the adversities to turn out alright.
Wait for the noises to turn into melody,
Wait for the dull days to end up merrily.
Wait, Oh Sweet child Just wait a little longer,
‘Coz my trials for you are to make you stronger.
-From God By Soniya Agrawal
I am so not a morning person,
Wake up cranky and groggy!
All I want to jump start the day,
Is a nice hot cup of Coffee!
Oh the aroma, activates my nerves
It’s only after coffee I can do my works.
Nothing before it not a little bit I move.
Friends call me Procaffeinator, and I don’t disapprove!
A hug in a cup I need and I am not being saucy.
All I am talking about is my hot cup of coffee!
As the night drapes the earth,
and the stars begin to shine.
Oh! What beauty darkness brings,
around it our lives entwine.
We embrace the darkness,
sometimes without the light
Why do we feel so lost?
even when the days shine bright.
‘Coz it’s our heart and only ours,
that truly accepts rumination of our soul.
The darkness comes again,
And the night galores.

The woods are tranquil,
The sea serene
The sky is blooming – what a beautiful sight!
The feeling so magical
How after every storm, The nature thrives within a night.
The way nature gives us life lessons is miraculous.
There may dark days,
They may be darker.
but after every darkness, there comes a light!
we survive, be begin to thrive,
and one day,
It all becomes alright.
