She used to dream …

April 25, 2008

Years ago, when she was a little girl
She used to dream.
She used to dream of beautiful places,
knight in shining armours and laughter.

As years passed by,
She continued dreaming.
But without her knowledge,
her dreams were taking new shapes.

Sometimes it took the shape of
a position, a promotion, recognition
or something very materialistic.
So fast the winds were whirling.

She went through several
heartaches and disappointments,
She survived all of them. But,
came out disillusioned.

World around her continued to
remind her that rosy pictures do exist,
but only in bollywood movies
and fairytales.

She stopped dreaming about
palaces, princes and rose gardens.
She has come to know that fairytales
were only the sadistic imagination of a cynic.

Now she just waits for the reality
to strike her, the sooner, the better.
The harder the strike,
the stronger she will be.

  4. I chanced upon your blog when I was looking for profiles with ‘Scent of a Woman’ listed as one of their favorite movies. I liked your page, and specially this poem. Simple, yet profound.

  5. Good lines here… well done..

  6. Hey nice poem. But I would say she should continue to dream as without dreams there won’t be any colors in our lives..

  7. @anonThanks :)@aparnaThanks aparna, Keep visiting@sreejithGlad you liked it@dhanyaI know unless you dream, life is colorless. Dreams are what makes you and your goals.

  8. You have just graduated in your aspirations my dear and its just that “knight in shining armours” is not exactly what you are looking for ๐Ÿ™‚ coz u always get what you seek, sooner or later ๐Ÿ™‚ but yes like u say “we need to dream and dream BIG”!

  9. @pratibhaWell said ๐Ÿ™‚

  10. i have to agree with pratibha..as we grow up..our dreams change…but God is kind..he always springs a surprise on us when we least expect us..the surprise ends up giving us much more joy than anything we cud have expected!

  11. @arojWell said. Whats life without surprises? Life springs one surprise after another and we have to handle them gracefully.

  12. I dont’t know if you can read in spanish but I invite you to visit my blog, it would be the first visit from India, a culture that atracts me very much. (My english isn’t very good, sorry!)I write poems and I include in my blog images that touch my soul.http://annabel-elsabordelascerezas.blogspot.com
