Archana Kapoor Nagpal Poems
Let Me Be Born
Please mother let me be born, I might shine bright like a diamond in your crown, I want to see the world,
Everything Will Be Perfect
One fine day, Everything will be perfect, One fine day,
Through Her Eyes Only
I brought her into this world, But she is like a mother to me, Darkness is the only colour for me, Though I see the beautiful world,
God On Facebook
God on Facebook If God ever had a Facebook account, God’s profile name would have been God,
Let Us Cook Together
Let us cook together, A meal that has no spice called 'ego', It lacks the bitter taste of 'jealousy' Do not add the ingredient - 'hatred',
How Can I Meet God?
The child asked the father, ‘How can I meet God? ’ Father smiled and said, ‘I will tell you’, In the seven colours of rainbow, In the bunch of roses,
I Tell Myself
I tell myself, I will not give up, When there is no hope of victory,
You Will Be Fine
I looked at her, And sat beside her bed, I kissed her gently, On her forehead,
Did I Ever Tell You?
Your heart is an ocean of love, You have filled my life with all the rainbow colours, You always protect me against life’s blowing winds, You are my blanket of warmth.
The Journey Of A Woman
She carries you in her womb, Not for a day or a week – but for all nine months, She gives you her blood and flesh, And brings you in this beautiful world,
I Tell Myself
I tell myself,
I will not give up,
When there is no hope of victory,
When my life feels meaningless,
Amid my own people,
When I feel worthless,
I tell myself,
