Are you brave enough? -Megha Sood


If I drink up all your sorrow
will you be good as new
if I smoke all your worries
in a puff
will you stay alive
for a few hours more

if I scrape all your scars
and wash up all your pain
Will you believe
in what I have to stay
to you?

Washed and
Glistening in the light
Will we be together again?
if I wash that blood of my sins
off my palms,
Will you give me company for life?

whisper and
and a scream
if I let all my heart out
Will you hold my hands
till the end of time
tie that holy knot?

I have heard many
and faces and names
I have seen enough
You are as weak as they come
Strong enough
till you see my gaping wound
and shudder

Rising high on your ego
thumping your chest
to make your presence felt
You will not be able to hold
your ground
to the pain
which doesn’t even break my sweat.

Born out of pain
and rocked by
the screaming lullaby
you can’t even eye the storm
I’m carrying
deep inside.

Megha's World

I’m a mother of a smart and energetic seven-year-old. I started expressing myself creatively since the last two years. Since then I have been continuously inspired by events in my life and around me which has helped me in penning my thoughts. I’m an avid reader, loves to sing, an ardent lover of poetry and sometimes can scribble few lines too. Loves to dance in the rain, have an undying love for nature, can watch the beautiful sunset for hours. Love to kiss and hug my loved ones. I have worked in the IT field for almost a decade as a manager, worked crazy hours and traveled around the world. In that busy schedule, I never got the time to creatively express my thoughts. Now every time I finish a poem, free verse anything it fills me with so much happiness and excitement and a feeling to have created something of my own. I’m planning to post at least one creation of mine weekly. Lastly, a million thanks to all who visit, like or follow my tiny bits of creation. Every time you do that, I get to know one more beautiful person in my life and get the chance to see their creation too.

  1. In the end, no matter how much you longed for someone to take that pain away from your life, you’re the only one with the ability to heal yourself, as nobody has the key, you’re the one with the ability to heal yourself, you just don’t realize it yet…
