A simple “Hi” leading to unsaid goodbyes..

“Hi!”

*no response*

“I am uninvited. I think you should know my arrival.”

*no response*

“Ignoring me may lead to your downfall”

*no response*

“May be you don’t think, I can visit you. You’re SO wrong!”

*no response*

“Now, get ready to suffer for neglecting me and see my fury”

*goes to doctor and does check-up*

“You may be listening to my voice for the first time because this is the first time you are paying attention and listening attentively but I was screaming and trying to let you know to get rid of me when I was innocent and a kid. Now, I have matured and I don’t intend to leave you, no matter what you do.”

*gets all nervous when the tests of check up comes as – Cancer positive*

“You will live. But for as long as I want. I am not ready to leave you because you have been a good host to me. Good because you neglected your symptoms and skipped your check ups and I was left to grow and grow I did”

*prayers and chemotherapy*

“You think you can make me weak? Good choice but you are also draining your bank account in the hope of living for some extra days but all in vain. I have knitted such a vicious web of my power that nothing can heal you. Now feel guilty for letting me grow and not killing me when in bud.”

*dies and family weeps and curse cancer*

“Curse me but I will find another reckless host and grow again. For now, feel glad that I have left. See you careless creatures soon enough”

I have written this as a tribute to how Cancer is increasing in our lives, not just the disease but also the ill feeling for someone or something. Any bad/unwanted thing which grows within us is cancer and we have to make sure that we kill it in the bud stage and not feed it, till it kills us. Ego, anger to name some. There is love.There are smiles. Spread them and feed them and life will we sweet.

My unknown self..

My unknown self
Always wants the things
Which my known self
Don’t understand
Didn’t expected
Can’t comprehend
And always
My unknown self wins
Because I can’t control it
I don’t know
Whether it resides
In my heart
In my mind
Or my soul
But it is there
Somewhere inside
Somewhere close
Guiding me during
Bad times
And patting me
For good job done
Smiling when I help somebody
Feeling proud to be
My unknown self
But there are times
When I want to
Listen to it’s words
And can’t seem to
Find it
And I feel lost
Even though
Surrounded by crowd
I want to cry
Bang my head
Curse my unknown self
For not gracing
Me with it’s presence
I surrender
I quit
And just on the verge
Of showing the white flag
I hear a murmur
I listen intently
The murmur gains strength
May be showing anger
For my foolish behavior
Of deciding to quit
And like a volcano
It erupts
Silencing my fears
My failures
Enlightening me
With wisdom
With courage
With love
With will power
With smiles
With patience
With trying spirit
With contentment
And there’s truce
Between the known
And unknown self
Till another dire situation 😉
