The Thing About Confidence is That…

It is seeded in thyself
And watered by others.


It is weeded by failure
And altered by changes.


You turn away,
And only look within,
Are you doomed to
A withering confidence?


It is a concoction,
Of others and you.


Situations and actions
Hath more to do.


In this celebrated pandemonium,
I shall pluck every instance
Of strength,
And bury every doubt.


I’ve acquired a legacy,
Of fierce quotes and
Affable anecdotes.

After You

Copyright (c) 2017 Meera Nair

After you,
I love the sound of a bell.
After you,
I love the thought of a getaway.
After you,
I awake, inspired.
After you,
I feel more eccentric.
After you,
I cringe less at cliches.
After you,
I’ve learnt what is us.
After you,
Everything is better.

The Lights Do Flicker.

A sphere awash with colors.
Colors that one doesn’t heed.
Since heeding took up time.
And time is as costly as money.

If we could have our own lights.
Lights that would change color.
Then what color would set aside
Any side of this sphere?

But dim now and bright before.
Would bright then again repeat?
In this fast lane, repeats gone,
Gone before a heart’s beat.
