// Will // I leave all my remains with you, my dear. And you, too! All of you!
I leave behind every single parchment of my will, and of me; I leave behind memories, I leave behind fulfilled dreams;
I leave behind gratitude, a few flowers and an incomplete journal;
Write me an eulogy you find worthy.

// Tonight // And tonight, out of nowhere, I have come to realise and to accept, that it's okay to be low, to be alone;
That it is okay to have a bad day, to know things did not go your way;
That it's okay to let go, or to be let gone of. I have come to realise, my dear, that it's essential for us to accept it, to embrace it, this pain;
It is just okay to tell yourself You're having a bad time, a phase that seems endless, but it's going to be okay. Sometimes, it's just okay to tell yourself that you might take a little more time, that your poem needs a few more syllables to rhyme;
It's alright if you're broken, for brokenness demands to be felt, to be exposed and to be out in the open.
We shy away because we fear acceptance, and open arms. To unhook and undress off those layers we hold so close, to just stand amidst darkness with eyes glowing of hope and of an awakening, we come to realise it's time we accept ourselves inside out, or vice versa;
Its time we write ourselves short memorable stories instead of longed and unpredictable eras.

//turn back// I turn back to the times I
never realised were meant to
break me, to cast a shadow
upon me;
I wear fragrances of yesteryears
through routines of the present,
I fail to tear myself apart, and away from it all;
What has it all come to, I wonder;
I shut myself out, away from melancholy
and solitude, into an oblivion right in the middle of a crowd of strangers
of the unknown;
I shut myself out, I run away.
I succumb. I now, breathe.
I turn my back now, miseries and mistakes smiling at me as I stand
strong with bandaids, with bandages,
free from bondages, though;
I turn my back to see who I was, realising what I am now meant to be;
I turn my back to them, to everything
that broke me, and taught me, for all I know now,
is in this very moment, and moments that are yet to come;
I am free.

//you might// You just might
fall in love with them,
with their flaws,
with the sketches life draws;
You just might adore them,
their scars, the way they
look at the stars;
You just might caress the softness
of their skin, or touch their
very soul with ease;
You just might peep into their residence and find a place to call ‘home’;
You just might evade, might run away from them sometime, as well;
You just might paint a picture with them and decorate walls,
but have you ever, ever, in the
tiniest speck of a moment,
spared a breath to fall in
love with your own self?
To fall in love with your own self, to touch those spots, those scars
and those stitches singing your own unsung victories,
now that is the kind of love and gratitude that blooms;
I fell in love with who I am,
every bit, every breath, every moment.

// see them do better // Sometimes, all it takes
is to not judge them
for who they were before,
for what they did before;
Sometimes, it is just
okay to let it go,
it is okay to put the past behind;
Sometimes, it is just okay to
welcome them back in life
with comfort, in their own skin;
Sometimes, somehow,
it is just essentially okay to
smile back to them, to see them make their peace with their doings;
Sometimes, somehow, it is all about forgiving them by not judging them
while and as they try to overcome shallows of their own shadow;
Sometimes, somehow, it is just okay to see them from a distance as they try to bloom again, flourish again;
Sometimes, somehow,
it is just essential to
embrace a greater good
as we see them do better,
and as we do better for ourselves.

// I pray // I pray equal, for you and for my own self;
I pray for harsh, I pray for soft,
I pray for the weak, I pray for the strong.
I pray for failures, I pray for served tenures;
I pray for rain, I pray for agony, too.
I pray for love, I pray for deceit, equal.
I pray for distant longing, I pray for unknown destinations, too.
I pray for half full, and for gratitude, too.
I pray for companionship, selfless.
I pray for solitude, too.
I pray for acceptance, for an awakening,
I pray for your well being, and courage enough to have you see yourself rising.
I pray for you, and for my own self, equal.
I pray for a final return to dust, a sum of our deeds settled in total.

//we perceive, we become// Everything is somehow not enough, sometimes. We compare our lives and wants to others. We sometimes fear the worse, somehow knowing it’s away from us for a reason. We convince ourselves, sometimes, lie to ourselves saying there’ a greater good ahead. We gulp hesitancies and move on. Now that is when we have got to stop running inside our boggled heads and stop!
We have got to stop and think what are actually upto? What do we actually want? What will it take us to grow, or let go of, to grow?
We have got to stop, breathe and try our best to make peace with what is, is! We have got to understand, and not convince ourselves of the possible worse, and nurture perspective instead. We have got to know that we cannot have everything and everything just cannot be perfect, ever. We have got to know that it is just us, not perfect, but true to our existence, to our fears, to our strengths and to what we let go or what let us go. We have got to rise above being mediocre and just know we come with a purpose, a purpose to live and to live until we are buried, and to be narrated stories of once we’re put to rest. We have got to realise that everything around is beautiful only if we have the eye for it, and everything is a living nightmare around in the same possible way. We perceive, and eventually, become.

//its okay to disconnect// Its okay to disconnect, to numb yourself away
from all the closets, the corners, the cracks and crevices as well;
Its okay to disconnect
from routines, people, errands, commitments and compromises, specially;
Its okay to disconnect
and not seek attachment for a while, too;
Its okay to disconnect from weeping and from unnecessary joy as well;
Its essential, quintessential, to say that we need to imbibe gratification
and enhancement of inner joy, of inner conscious and self awareness, to peep within our own self.
The crowd can wait.

//sunflowers and shadows// We shall eventually grow old,
we shall just fade away into
the infinity;
We shall eventually end up being
stardust from ashes, or from
fond memories;
We shall just be remains of a
presence that lingers no more, we’ll all be free, soon
sooner than we can ever think!
My dear, we shall be fragrant
through flowers of ceremony
and we shall be shadowed remembrances as clouds pass by.

I present to you the very first poem from my second book titled "Ease". //A moment or two//
Give me
a moment or two,
To let go of a mystery
and it's only remaining clue
To scream vibrant into the blue
To announce my conscience true
To rejoice letting go, through and through;
Give me
a moment or two, My Lord,
To pray, to kneel and to bow before you;
Give me
a moment or two
To reveal myself unambiguous and unbiased as I fearlessly write to you
"As I choose me for me,
You are victorious enough to choose
you for you."
- Mukhpreet Singh Khurana

I know my days are numbered.
All of ours are.
I see death chasing me
from the corner of my eye,
from the shortage of breath,
from the weakness in my limbs,
from holding on, and letting go;
I see death edge closer to me
as I come to realise it all
comes down to everything
and everyone we are grateful for and thankful for, no matter how exiled their presence has been.
