    BEAUTIFUL BRILLIANT LIGHT The one that shines so bright, The beautiful mind hiding a brilliant light. The one who's smile can illuminate the night, who's voice could calm a angel's fright The one who's laugh can make you melt, hoping to only feel, whats felt. A person I see...

    The Others

      Funnily enough there seems to be lots of 'others'. Do we have powers? Are there any social benefits, any clichés? Anything interesting associated with being an Other? Really? Well that is interesting. I suppose I can find happiness as an other, especially with...

    Umar Mere Guzar Gai

    Umar mere guzar gai, Par tere aane ka intazar Abhi tak hai. Umar ke sath-sath nigahia Bhi mere kamzor ho gai , Fir Bhi tujhe ek Nazar dekhne ko taras gai . Bas akhri saase liye ja raha ru, Tere aane ke intazar me. Aakhir kab khatam honga ye intazar?
