You don't need any paraphernalia,
to describe who you are.
You don't have to be beautiful, and eye glancing to appreciate the savor of inner beauty.
I have known you for years,
You still have that soft,
light hearted heart, layered
somewhere between  your subtle smiles.
You don't need to be colorful,
Just to show others.
I embrace you,
with these dreary, deficient colors.
You don't need to get colorful,
these colors defined perfectly 'Who you are'.
You don't have to mask yourself,
with these artificial colours,
You looked stunning in this outlook only.
I can sight the whole galaxy,
In those of yours half - partial image,
That you think it's partial, but it is not dear!
It's more than, than what you think so
You can't see your inner beauty,
that resides within.
You don't need any of these paraphernalia,
To change yourself.
Just embrace the glorious mess that you are.

    1. First of all thank you so much 😇 Hahah… truly saying I just see this pic last night and words came through my mind instantly….and once I’m done with writing, I just read and re-read the poem and had some changes, correct some grammatical mistakes…… that’s it…

      1. Your explanation sounds really simple that it’s easy to write this kind of good stuff but actually it’s not at all hats off to you that you do it consistently 😃. Aise he likhte rho or hum jaise amateurs ko thoda bhut sikhate rho 😂😜

            1. hahahahah…you can say so, actually it is all due to practice. Once you start doing it on a regularly basis you too will enhance your writing skill and this works in all other aspects of life.

  1. One can embrace himself, only if he stops living in his mind but living with life.
    Although It’s going to be hard, but come on When has love been easy.

    Btw Dakshali, the way you describe is really awe-inspiring.

    1. Yes….,there’s a whole world outside our mind, so one should know how to control their thoughts..and
      “when you control your thoughts, you control your mind. When u control ur mind, u control ur life, and once u reach the stage of being in total control of ur life, you can become the mastery of his/her destiny.” This is a little excerpt from the book ‘THE MAN WHO SOLD HIS FERRARI’.
      and there are several methods given in that book how to control yourself. I think you should read that book, may be you have read this already, then just glance the book at once for while.

  2. Great imagery. Thoughtfully written. I admire your transparent and spontaneous responses.

    I see that you keep your brain shelves unoccupied that God showers his verses into these cisterns.

    Practically speaking, the nearly whole world of young girls believe their beauty to be externally made up with Fair & Lovely creams, and it is extremely disheartening to see them avoid the recipes for internal beauty namely vegetables, fruits, sprouts, greens; and spoiling their internal beauty with consuming junk, fast food and meat.

    They are wrongly relying on oils, shampoos, creams, soaps, parlours, fashionable styles and dresses, jewellery and accessories.

    Self confidence, Happiness, Relaxation, Honesty increase our internal beauty which will echo as the external beauty.

    Thanks Dakshali for letting me open up on this much important issue.
