The day shall come

I'm there with you, my dear.
I'll hug you whenever you cry,
I'll give my best to save you from the bad guys,
I'll turn my prayer beads for you every moment,
I'll let everybody know what you've been through,
I'll lend my warm shoulders for you to lean on,
Let me carry you on my hips,
I'll show you the huge glowing ball on the dark skies,
it's far far away from the place we live in,
I'll let you dream that far,
And I'll help you live them too.
I'm standing up now with shaky hands,
But all I have in mind is you,
That tear you shed,
That baton you took,
That plea you cried,
That prayer you wailed,
I promise to be by your side,
Not leave you till you rise,
I'll cover myself with your flag,
I'll treat you like my child.
The time shall come,
When you rise up to the red,
Clamp them with your thousand rays,
Ride on your snow lions
and take your people back home.
The day shall come, my child.

She would wake up early in the morning with her hair as beautifully braided as ever and I would be shook awake to have that traditional head massage with a mixture of hot coconut and castor oil with the extracts of sun-dried hibiscus, henna and fenugreek. After I sleepily shampoo my hair followed by the massage, my mom would pat it dry with a thin towel and would carefully part my hair into sections to try different types of braids on my curly but soft hair.

As she tamed my dense and curly hair into braids of every possible beauty, I would sit there bored with the palm of my hands supporting my cheek. In spite of lack of time, my mother made it a point to wake up ten minutes early everyday just to make time for the wonderful braids that her fingers weaved with my hair. After she finished with the styling, I would gaze at my own self in the mirror and brim at her with pride on my face.

I would say occasionally, "Maa, you can b…

CHAPTER 3


It was the fall again, they had gone for a stroll outside the university campus into the beautiful park where snowy trees surrounded the white spread and there were very few passers-by due to the freezing chill.
The two of them hovered around enjoying the beauty carpeted around them. Maureen had already gone down, working her gloved hands into the snowy layers. She started rolling a huge ice ball with a grin on her pink face. Steve looked at her dazed by the tinkle of her eyes and the jingle that her laughter spread in his heart.  The moist wind ruffled her blond hair, some of which fell onto her face like a wave onto the shores.
Steve just stood there with his hands folded, his lips curved into a mesmerizing smile and his eyebrows were arched in sheer amazement of what was happening to him that moment.   He felt…

Being humane

Every dawn dooms with wail


I never opine but in my daze,

For I am human, humane.
