“No Expectations : No Disappointments” – Mind Talk

“Ask no questions ; and you’ll be told no lies. “

Don’t we all have expectations? Of course, we have and it’s quite normal, but we often get down in the dumps, when not being met with these covet expectations.
Often we tend to believe that we treat others, will be the way we are regarded in return ; but that’s not always plausible.

Nurturing realistic expectations and thereafter being not met, only allows us to recognize unrealistic flaws and imperfections each and everyone has.

All we need to learn to take our own responsibility for our own lives,our own decisions, our own self ; before we can expect others to do the same.

Our unrealistic expectations will, can, and most often do lead to dismay and regrets. We get so obsessed with finding so- called ‘ Perfect’ things, making us more of ” Displeased Zombies” rather than ” Perfectionists”; and when all doesn’t pan out, it gets frustrating and disheartening… A total Paradoxical Chaos.

The most calamitous pitfall of having high expectations is that we debar ourselves from enjoying the experience, the motive altogether.

Keeping unrealistic notions, one end up with hurt, disappointment and mental agony.
But isn’t it inherently biased to have these people on such a pedestal??

It’s only “You” who has to call the shots, who has to self- imbibe the ground realities, which will help you nail down ‘ what’s expected of others’ .

Don’t ever let life throw on you a curve ball!!
Expect less and don’t let aspirations fly so high that they become unreachable.

Remember: “Acceptance is an amazing key for Happiness.”!!

I Breathe In The Sauntering Air That Collapses My Being

I Breathe In The Sauntering Air That Collapses My Being

I breathe in the sauntering air that collapses my being,I breathe through the crevices of my existence unseen.Uncertainty in its yonder strikes in bolt on the scars that nobody sees,Redemption that loves, redemption that is free, find me in the depths of my poetry.

Tales of lust ridden in smeared touches that belie,Entreated with envy, the visions of victory lie.To be or not to be in a question that yet lies,For I yearn for a world where fond passion never dies.

Enclasped in the cage of the deemed duty,Bounded in her vows, she forgot she was a thing of beauty.In a realm we live, where amour in its truth fails to stand tall,She, tired of her existence, submerges herself into the beauty that her dreams enthrall.

Chaos in its uproar hails in its darkness

On The Shackles Of Patriarchy

I beheld onto the entourage of notions that shunned the norms of patriarchy,Compelled by the grind, silenced by the storm, dedicated to be attuned to the tunes,To be mellowed like a woman, a deity in the shrines, an object of desire molded to a man’s swoons.

Vanity in its uproar enthroned and engulfed the joy in its entirety beheld,A man’s dignity is defined by the sacredness of the unwithered flower a woman held.

Leashed by the expectations, bound to the shackles of duty,The divinity of a feminine alas plummeted to only its mere beauty.Her existence sublimed under the pride o

To The Ones November Has Not Been Kind To

To The Ones November Has Not Been Kind To

Hey there stranger, I hope you realize how amazing you are and how beautiful the world is because of you in it. This one is for you if November has not been kind to you. I know right now all you feel is how the darkness that surrounds knows no end, and the light that you are so desperately and intently searching for seems to lose its way in the dreariness of despair. I know all you long right now is a moment of peace and this month has constantly put you on the edge of your sanity. November has not been your month, all it has done is test your strength and remind you that you need to keep it all together. Life in its entirety has plonked you into the land of uncertainty, and all you yearn for is to be lost in a land where you cannot be found, only to berescued with the warmth of love and a warm cup of coffee.
