The Ballerina is on Her Toes

 

The ballerina is on her toes
While the model’s intentions are exposed

The farmer is going through an arid season
While the suspect is no longer charged with treason

The proud will puff up their chests
While the lowly are carrying their load
For both it will be a long and dark road

Why are we really alive?
To be under pressure is to thrive

I am tired of my head spinning
And seeing their hands winning

But loss and gain is just our perception
We are all here for a divine plan
Watching the child turn into a man

By Carly Wiggins.

Why do we sometimes choose to be indirect?
Are we trying to enhance the effect?
To make a statement without carrying the weight?
To judge people without incurring the hate?
Why alter the message trying to force a rhyme?
Who will decipher it, are we wasting their time?
We try so hard to be creative and progressive
Hoping for someone to say “Oh that’s impressive”
If it is short and sweet maybe they will believe
Careful you’re not saying just enough to deceive
Don’t try to seem intelligent and wise
And in the end cause confusion and spread lies
Starting conflict where there was none
Is this person addressing me with this one?
We communicate in code to soften the blow
It’s ok to conceal from some and allow them to unpeel
But sometimes it is better to be open and plain
Seeking only God’s glory, giving with nothing to gain

Our guest today is a writer who loves to writes. He is a  34 years old New Yorker. He loves creative writing. His blog is mainly about his experiences and what he has learned in life. Phillip is a friendly person seeking deeper conversations and learning more about myself and life. My chat with him was most enjoyable. I am confident you will enjoy it too.

RNG: Good morning Phillip, it’s great to be chatting with you here, you are an excellent wordsmith and it’s a real pleasure hosting you here on my blog.So when did you first realize you wanted to be a write? 

Phillip: In college some of my professors told me that I was a good writer. It was only about eight years ago when I started reading the Bible that I started writing seriously for myself. I would say that I knew I wanted to be a writer when I started my blog in May and I knew I had something to share with the world.

RNG: How long does it take you to write a poem/article?

Phillip: About 10-20 minutes for the writing process on average. I’m always thinking though, but I would’t start writing until I have a story put together in my head. Sometimes I would start trembling as I hurry to write it down.

RNG: What is your work schedule like when you’re writing?

Phillip: I don’t really have a schedule. I write whenever I have the urge, whether it be early in the morning or late at night.

RNG: What would you say is your interesting writing quirk?

Phillip: I try to end my poems or articles on a positive note or with a challenge for the reader.

RNG: What is your motivation factor?

Phillip: When I finish writing a piece I am usually pleasantly surprised by the results and that encourages me to write more.  Beyond that is the opportunity to express myself and share my beliefs. 

RNG: When did you write your first poem/article and how old were you?

Phillip: When I was in high school me and my brothers would enjoy writing rap songs and competing with each other. So maybe 14 or 15.

RNG: How many poems/articles have you written till now? Can you share a few links of your favorite articles or a few lines of a poem close to your heart with our readers?

Phillip: I write about three poems a month, but including the one here I’ve published 16 posts. A few of my most recent posts that I am happy with are:

A Good Tree 

Antiphysical 

Divine Design 

(I especially like Divine Design because to me it shows the personhood of God)

RNG: What do you like to do when you’re not writing?

Phillip: I like to be in nature with the trees and observe animals as they browse and play. I also like playing basketball, video games and reading.

RNG: Would you like to consider publishing your work in form of a book in the near future?

Phillip: Yes, I certainly wouldn’t be against the idea. I would be careful though not to let money influence my content adversely.

RNG: Do you have any suggestions to help the people reading your interview become a better writer? If so, what are they?

Phillip: I would say to read often and gain inspiration from the writers that you admire. Be more aware of your surroundings and don’t be serious all the time. Lastly, keep the reader in mind instead of your own fame.

RNG: It’s been great chatting with you Phillip. I hope the readers enjoy reading it as much as I enjoyed conducting it. Hope to see you frequent my guest post in future also and all my best wishes for your future.

Guest Post: Ananya, The Verbal Seduction

Have a say: Ananya, The Verbal Seduction

15589595_1405926332751124_3980458306553421501_n

Always choose to slay this world via what you think expressed in the form of kind words;
Because, to have an opinion or to take a stand is to flaunt an identity, 
is to carry a special personality. 
Just never choose to stay quiet and let your thoughts choke and die in there.

They may be right.
But dear, you are not wrong either.
For, when ‘viewpoint’ is considered;
Your cap must have that feather.

The opinion made;
won’t be embraced by all.
The stance you take;
May even lead to a brawl.

But don’t let it make you weak.
‘Cause oppositions will come and go. 
Accept the contrast in views gracefully.
But save yourself from considering ‘em as ‘foe’.

Do think twice;
Before concluding.
Be thoroughly wise.
There’s no withdrawing.

Think a thousand thoughts, I’ll suggest;
So that you’re prepared for the counterattacks.
You can’t afford to be absolutely erroneous;
Cause if proven wrong, it’ll leave you with deep cracks.

Not to say;
Be right all the time.
A li’l true, a li’l flawed;
Will do no crime.

Just when you have a li’l more pensive thought;
And an expression of it with no delay.
In the midst of all the perspectives;
Yours will get a better chance to slay.

A ‘say’ is must;
For you to manifest.
Viewpoint’s a requisite;
It shall not be the best.

What is of prime importance is-
Is to have an outlook with unadulterated views.
Not for the world but for your own self;
To turn your sinking boat of thoughts into a rich cruise.

To own an opinion;
Is to hold a personality.
To utter it with grace;
Has its own beauty.

But dare you become adamant;
Refusing to listen to what others have to claim.
Be a little ductile about your views. 
‘Cause being stiff-necked is way too lame.

Arguments are fine.
Discussions are better.
When one listens to the other
Reasoning turns less bitter.

Our guest today is a writer, a mere woman from India (as she calls herself, though I personally differ on this opinion) running in her 20’s.
Being called woman just sounds sexy but the ‘girl’ traits exist more in her.
She happens to aspire success and that feeling of contentment, both at the same time via ‘Words’. Has an ongoing affair with books, which sometimes leaves her perplexed for some reason, every time. Jotting down the raw thoughts is what brings her chaotic soul to peace and which is what brings her here (her love for writing).
अनन्या शर्मा| They call her‘Annie’… ❤ My chat with Annie, was most enjoyable. I am confident you will enjoy it too.

RNG: Good morning Ananya, it’s great to be chatting with you here, you are an excellent wordsmith and can comfortably write in both Hindi and English languages so when did you first realise you wanted to be a writer?

ANANYA: I was always into books (novels) –romantic reads, specifically. I escalated quite quickly from Chetan Bhagat to John Green and Paulo Coelho. The words written in their novels always left me wonderstruck. Though this feeling came up mixed with positive enviousness, too! It lit a fire in me to write. To write what others can feel the deepest. 

And then, a few months ago, a phase came in my life when I began to crave seclusion. 
I started to hate talking to people. Maybe it was just me; realising that there’s no one to listen to your heart (with no intention of seeking sympathy). 

“But I knew –words were. Words were dying to know my story. Words were dying to get scribbled by me on the paper to know it all. The only difference that still exists is that the keyboard exchanged paper. Just technology.”

 And thanks to that phase, it brought me here.
And it is the best thing that has happened to me.

RNG: Great, I love reading you work. How long does it take you to write a poem/article?

ANANYA: If I go for verses than it takes me good 1-1.5 hours. And a normal poem takes hardly 30 minutes. ‘Cause you see, the feelings go with the flow, as naturally as water does. 

RNG: What is your work schedule like when you’re writing?

ANANYA: Nights are meant for writers, aren’t they? 

I hear nothing except my own breaths.
As if, I’m surrounded by thousands of deaths.
With a li’l effort, I can hear my heartbeats, too.
It’s 2 a.m. & I’ve begun to jot a thousand thoughts or maybe just a few.

 

RNG: Nights are meant for writers” I agree with that 100%. It happens with me too. Words jump around in my head when I lay down to sleep like kindergarten kids who flock their teacher the moment she decides to sit down.  Coming on to my next question, What would you say is your interesting writing quirk?

ANANYA: My quirk is a little “out-of-self-control” quirk and by out of self-control what I mean is that –I have sheer love for poetry, for the rhyming endings. So, even If I plan to craft a normal poem without rhyming words, I somehow, helplessly fail to do so. I ultimately convert it into a verse. I don’t even know if it’s a quirk or not. 

RNG: What is your motivation factor?

ANANYA: You may anticipate that I have a wrong perception but I think motivation is for them who are not much and deep into what they do. I just simply love to jot down the feelings. If that’s what you call motivation then ‘my love for scribbling’ is simply my motivation factor.

RNG: When did you write your first poem/article and how old were you?

ANANYA:
It was real late. I wrote it at the back of my rough notebook when I was in 11 Std. 

RNG: How many poems/articles have you written till now? Can you share a few links of your favourite articles or a few lines of a poem close to your heart with our readers?

ANANYA: Honestly, I don’t have a count. It definitely doesn’t mean that I’ve written many. I just never counted. 

Here’s a slight suggestion by a fellow blogger, J.Winston-*GRIEVE, FULLY* . I reblogged it also. I think it the best thing I’ve read lately. 
And a few lines from ‘Enforced Ego-centrism’ by me.

The reason for which I preferred to share this is because I know many who are doing everything they can just to make someone else smile. And that someone doesn’t care to look at their pains at all. These lines are for those people:

They are not the one’s to rely on.
They don’t deserve any solace from you. 
Stop making them feel better, 
Focus on enriching your own brew. 

‘Cause you’ll die making them smile. 
If they can’t see the soul dying in you, 
They don’t deserve your pearl like words 
‘Cause I can’t see them stepping in your shoe.

RNG: What do you like to do when you’re not writing?

ANANYA: I love to watch some web series. And of course, to do all the wonderings about life along with slight introspection while sipping hot coffee.

RNG: Would you like to consider publishing your work in form of a book in the near future?

ANANYA: My dream is to become a writer and to have my own novel. Many Novels. 

RNG: Do you have any suggestions to help the people reading your interview become a better writer? If so, what are they?

ANANYA: Just make sure that whatever you write comes pouring out from your pious heart. Rest all will be taken care of. 

RNG: It’s been great chatting with you Ananya. I hope the readers enjoy reading it as much as I enjoyed conducting it. Hope to see you frequent my guest post in future also and all my best wishes for your future.

ANANYA: Ranjeeta Ma’am, I cannot thank you enough for inviting me for this amazing guest interview. I felt deep pleasure in answering all these questions asked by you. And I must admit, it is very divine of you to give such a wonderful opportunity to all the naïve bloggers like me and others. You being an established one and then to deciding to promote others make me feel very happy. I hope for you to be happy always.
Quoting it with; “Never forget to step in their shoes”.

Lovely poem by Charles E. Waugh

See how beautiful this is. I found it in my comment box and gave it the title LOVELY POEM by Charles E. Waugh. Kindly tell me how you find it.

You’ve Come Very Far
When you shine like the sun,
You can have so much fun,
That you couldn’t before,
From behind a closed door.
When you shine like the moon,
Take a delicate swoon,
In soft moonbeams glow,
So we all come to know,
That your talent is deep,
It could soon make us weep,
With your visions revealed,
They’re no longer concealed.
When you shine like a star,
You shine from afar,
So the whole world sees,
Something bright that can please.
So shine away, Sun
So shine away, Moon
So shine away, Star
You’ve come very far.

Bitter pill sweet poison

IMG_0025 sharmishtha 17.2.16 sm (1)By Guest Author Sharmishtha Basu
Listening to elders and seniors is a lesson you have been taught since childhood. This is what you should do. Everyone says so. This includes the wise and the shrewd; and they are right. When you are a kid, you really don’t know much about life; but you think you know a lot. At this age, it is good to blindly obey your elders unless, of course, they are asking you to jump off a cliff. In such a case, you need to first ask why!

As a young person, it is possible to meet elders who will try to manipulate you to do something wrong. You may fall into their trap, but if it is not something that is downright immoral, it may not do you much harm; and you should be able to get over the damage in later years.

However, children usually will not meet many potentially harmful adults if they are brought up in a normal family. A kid’s life mostly includes his parents, family, teachers and family friends. If the parents are cautious, much harm won’t be done on their children. If they are not, sooner or later the children will end up in big trouble. This may continue till they leave school. It is mostly in the later years of school that they are able to identify those adults who try to manipulate or misguide them.

That is the time you should start assessing the effects of their acts before following their guidelines blindly, after mid-teens it is wise to be a little judgmental when it comes to long-term things like your career or other serious issues. Because by that time you would have discovered that not all human beings are benevolent, irrespective of their age or their relationship with you. If you blindly follow them you are doomed. So be a bit judgmental when you are growing up.

When you are in your youth, you have already joined those who are grown up; so, listen to elders. You should be able to differentiate between good and bad, the bitter pill and sweet poison; if not you may only learn after you have swallowed a few!
