I believe in breaking stereotypes, questioning them. I believe in causing a stir in the consciences of people. Everyone has their calling in life; their motto; their passion. Mine's to cause change. And my weapon in doing so? I, Me, Myself.

You’ll find colours

Of every shade

Sprouting out of

My scalp.

And every now

With tender love

Of the fierce within.

Pancha Mahabhuta

You, darling,
You are
The purity of water;
To cleanse and,
To flush;
You are
The light of fire;
To warm and,
To burn;
You are
The growth of earth;
To nurture and,
To absorb;
You are
The spirit of air;
To be free and,
To control;
You are
The vastness of space;
To be infinite and,
To be void.
You, darling
Are the
Pancha Mahabhuta
Embodied.

I glance to my left, at the daisy clock he’s put up. It was a Saturday afternoon, and I remember telling him about the geyser being left a few minutes too long, as I stirred the tea leaves, in the morning while I got busy in the kitchen. All he said was “Hm.” as he passed me the cup of milk. I’m not sure when he got the clock but I stepped in the next morning to find the daisy hanging on the wall.
