Memoirs Of A Life Gone By ….

I went down the memory lanes,
To those places, I zoomed by,
In my fast driven vehicle, in and around those lanes,
As the picture of my life in front of my eyes zoomed by.


Was that my life, I am really seeing?
I asked myself this over and over again,
It seemed like a different life and a different being,
When did I ever became such a different person?

Is that what they call metamorphism?
I don’t know, will I ever see that life again?
Or did I loose it on my way to become this version of myself,
I feel petrified, every time I think about it.            IMG-20180511-WA0005

I am not that same girl who had the wings,
Who like a butterfly, could never be still even for a minute,
Today, sits for hours together like a pillar,
Oh butterfly, when did you become the ugly moth?


Yes, I did not die a physical death,
As others still see it, I am alive,
But yet, I did die a death inside,
Where that butterfly girl is no more.


Visions criss cross over in my memory, of that life, I had lived,
Long ago, in another lifetime it seems now,
Could fate play a cruel game more in my life?
Making me a mere shadow of my past.


Life goes on still, I occupy myself in different things now,
Could the fate be a tad kinder to me, at least now,
By making me forget my yesterday and it’s effects,
Let me start a new chapter in my new Memoirs, for my next travel down the memory lane.              IMG-20180512-WA0001

Uhmm! What do I say abt myself. Love to read, write, watch tons of movies and loves music. Educated enough to enlighten a few things to a few some who shows the interest to listen. This is me in a nutshell. Will let out little by little, like the cat out of the bag. Ok I think it's time to let out one more passion of mine, which I as much love as writing, and that is cooking. Trying out different new recipies with a slight variation added of mine makes my culinary skills a little adventurous cuisine.

  2. I just wanted to remind you of a malayalam song written and sung byRev. Sajan achen, ” oru mazhayum thorathirunittilla,oru kaatum adangathirunittilla, oru raavum pularathirunittila, oru novum maarathirunittilla”; meaning: there’s not a single rain that has not stopped, or there’s not a storm that has not subsided, nor there’s not a night which was not followed by a dawn, and there’s not a pain that has not been overcome. I request you to kindly hear that song sung by Sajan achen along with his testimony. God bless you.

      4. Yes! Do share it in your blog as one of your sharing experience if u like it. Otherwise we can catch on it later. Yes Kerala’s major income is from gulf. But the boom and craze for gulf jobs has come down there too among the younger generation.
