thoughts from my mind to yours

Promise – Published in Festive Riot


Amidst the darkness and light that filled you,
you hung on to hope,
as you lay your mind
on the first sunrise of the new year…
and in that moment,
you promised your dreams
that you would never stop trying…
you promised your heart
that you would never stop loving…
and in that moment,
you promised your life
that you would never stop living.
So you smiled at the new dawn
and let yourself be content in this feeling,
this moment, that made you happy.

Hello Everyone,

Hope you are all having a fantastic 2017 so far! Last month I was approached by a fellow blogger, Suparna from about writing something for her non profit online magazine, Festive Riot. The magazine features some great art, poetry and short pieces by individuals around the globe. Needless to say, I was honoured by her request. I am so humbled to be part of their new year edition. Thank you again Suparna for the opportunity. Keep up the great work! Please check out her blog if you haven’t already done so for some great poetry and awesome posts.

You can check out the New Year edition of Festive Riot via this link. My poem in on page 6.


Much Love,
