My Sachem, My Helot

I lost control over my most prized possession,
You were it,
You were my slave,
And I,
Your master,
Your flowed in my veins,
You were the blood,
Thicker than the water of my worldly goods,
I’m lost in your mystical world,
Trapped by all the walls you built around me
And now,
You haunt me,
You tempt me,
You scorn me,
You hurt me,
You control me in your fingers,
Like a switch switched on and off,
Or a puppet in a puppeteer’s hands,
You cajoled me into being confident,
Till you crushed me,
And destroyed me,
Nothing is same anymore,
I lost my authority over you,
I can’t control the words anymore,
My only power in this world,
Gone forever….

Happy Birthday Papa!

To the one who helped with my first steps,
Taught me how to ride a bike,
Aided me on my first hike,
And sneaked me chocolates when I was grounded!

All that junk food in the car,
Even when we didn't have to travel too far,
All the fun we had,
When I was little,
And whenever I got mad;

Thank you for being there,
All my life,
Have a happy birthday papa!

Just came outta my hiatus to wish a Happy Birthday to my dad (though obviously it’ll be epic, cause I exist😆)

Happy Birthday Papa!
(PS Thanks for sneaking all the chocolates during morning practice 😉 )

Je ne sais pas

Hey people!
So I wrote a poem which is directed to those specific people who expect me to know everything because I’m a scholar, who mock me when I don’t know the answer, and the ones who treat me like an answer key, they are just so infuriating……….
And those teachers who pick on you when no one can answer just cause they don’t like you……..
Oh and ‘Je ne sais pas’ means I don’t know.

Je ne sais pas,
Am I the only one in class?
All those questions,
Directed at me when no one can answer....

Je ne sais pas,
When you ask me the answers,
Is it weird that I can't answer?
Just because I'm a scholar doesn't make me a genius,
I'm human you know....

Je ne sais pas,
No, I don't know everything in this world,
And yes some facts do surprise me,
That too weird for you?

Je ne sais pas,
Yes I do learn in class,
Is that astounding for you?
I don't have google in my head,
I can't possibly know something before the teacher teaches it,
Whoever the teacher may be,
Even if I know it, 
I might not understand it,
So I do need to listen in classes like you do,
Not a super human people...

Je ne sais pas,
Why is it so surprising,
I'm a human,
There are many things I am not aware of,
It's normal,
Just accept it....

Je ne sais pas tout,
C'est la vie pour toi,
At the end of the day,
I'm a human,
I don't know everything,
Stop exclaiming when I admit it,
I don't care what you think,
I have questions,
About studies,
About life,
And so many more,
I'm not your answer key,
Because many a times I myself don't know,
I don't care what you think,
When I tell you that,
Because the truth is,
Je ne sais pas la réponse,
Je n'ai pas peur de l'admettre.....

Do you find it annoying when people expect you to know everything just because you’re good at studies?

Stay safe, keep reading!

This one is for my alsi dosts (not you Ritika)

Soo basically me and my classmates finished our VIVAs yesterday, and yeah they weren’t too great most of us didn’t study and take it seriously, so I had written a poem for exam prep cause my teacher asked me too, and now I dedicate this poem to them (and me).

To all the current members of “Apna kaam banta bhad mei jayi janta” (yes that is the group name, can you believe it?) and the ex members who left the group saying that they would prepare for exams (we all know you aren’t preparing drop the act yar) and to the members of “The ones who must not be named” (we couldn’t decide a name, but this is a whole girl’s group so it’s wayyyyy more civilized) this one is for you (not you Ritika we know you study).

Exams around the corner,
Worry in our minds,
Stop moving around like a mourner,
Go study or you’ll be behind!

You are a bud,
Which needs education to bloom,
Don’t fall in the mud,
And meet your doom!

Prepare and revise,
That’s what matters the most,
Exams are a blessing in disguise,
So in the end you can boast!

Study for your exams,
And they shall be fun,
Research the diagrams,
You’ll need to learn to be number one!

So yeah guys pad lo seriously, and with that note, I’m gonna go sleep, study.

How are you all?
What have you been upto the past few days?

xD IK that’s proof that I’ll sleep, but on a serious note, yeah I’ll go study

Be a well informed global citizen!

Yeah the title is a bit boring I guess?
So basically I wrote two poems for my school assembly few days ago (as in it was yesterday xD )
So I thought I’ll post them here, the first one was about exam preparation and I decided not to post it, but might, like IDK if I should, but this one is……
Well you’ll read what it is………
Also I changed my header!!!!!
Thank you for voting and your opinions everyone!!!

Tons of deaths,
Tons of progress,
A war fought here,
Peace bought there!

Our world goes through stages,
With tons of changes,
The fools don’t know,
What many undergo!

Things change in our country
And in our world,
Be a well informed global citizen,
And help our world!

Yeah it was super cringy, IK
Anyways, given that I am super lazy to update my divider to match my new green shade (its a duller and darker shade than the previous one oof), I’m just gonna end it here and go to sleep!

So if anyone wants me to post the boring exam one I will, for now I bid you all adieu, stay safe, have a good night (or a morning, afternoon or evening, or whatever you have)!!!!

Déjà vu

Déjà vu,
Every time I switched schools,
Same type of introductions, 
Same type of people,
Same rules, 
Same nervousness,
Certaines choses ne changent jamais

Déjà su,
Of course I know things like classes won't change,
All first days of school the same,
All classes the same,
Il n'y avait pas de différence,
Aucun que je connaissais

Déjà vécu,
Naturally I had lived it all before, 
Every time, 
Every year,
It was to be the same wasn't it?
Ça a toujours été

Jusqu'à ce que ce ne soit pas,
Everything was different this time,
No going to school, 
No meeting friends,
No cribbing about double periods like a fool,
Tout a changé

Les choses ont tourné pour de bon,
Et puis ils étaient à nouveau mauvais,
Everything started to seem normal, 
We started to slip into our old routine again,
MAIS,
Ça a encore changé,
It got worse,
No offline school again,
Covid terrorizing all,
No friends again,
All of us dreaming of meeting again,
In the cafeteria hall

Les choses ne sont pas pareilles maintenant,
Like they were,
Some changes are good,
Some bad,
Don't know which one this is,
Encore........

Hey guys!
I hope you all are well!!!
So basically this was a poem I wrote some in English some in French, cause lots of reasons ig?
You can check out it’s translation here

Anyway this describes how I felt every time I had changed schools, and the first days of school every year, every time it was same, till the day it changed.
And how COVID-19 affected our lives, and I still don’t know whether it is a good change or a bad one……
PS check out my hate filled review of the cursed child here.

How did you feel adjusting to online schools?

I wish you all a happy day ahead, stay safe!

Merry Christmas

merry christmas
christmas tree star

Merry Christmas to all of you!!!!

do you miss me elf

Blankness in my world,
White and black everywhere,
All joy unheard,
Emotions untouched for ages…

I hide myself from everything,
Protect myself from it,
But,
This contagious disease spreads,
I catch it……

Dreading for it to get over,
It Seeps into my body,
Colourful lights everywhere,
Happiness,
Love,
Joy,
That’s what it is about,
I see everything colourful,
Birds chirping kids screaming in delight,
Happily enjoying life,
Families bonding!!!

Red green yellow,
And Golden and silver,
Tons of tinsel,
Heaps of cakes!!!

I come out of the darkness,
All the melancholy,
All the depression,
All the misery…….

The festive spirit takes over me,
I can’t fight it,
Or maybe I won’t…..

I let myself seep into a pool of joy,
I see you all,
And I scream,
Merry Christmas!!!

To all the Fictional Characters out there


When in the sun I lay
All those crystal memories
Those make my day

All the books I read
All the lives I lived
While sitting on the bed
Dreading your end

Year after year
Each 500 pages i read

Each year hoping for the end
Yet every time anxiously waiting for it not to happen

I cried for you
I laughed with you
I fought along with you
I hushed those mocking tones for you
I lived for you
I died for you
I rejoiced with you
I grew up with you
I grew up for you
And yet you left me
You left me alone to fend for myself 
All of you left me
In this cruel harsh world

You left me alone in the real world
You may have given me a much needed break from the my world
At a place where I belonged
But you still left me

After all I did for you
You still left me 
In reality


This is to all the fictional characters out there as a punishment for stomping over my heart, after all the sleepless nights, all the times I waited and all the times I got in trouble for reading in class.

Stay safe!!
Mischief managed!

I’ll break through

Stuck inside cage
Covered with glass
I try to break through
But it shatters 
All around me
Pieces get stuck
In my Achilles heel
I am invincible
But vulnerable
All my emotions
Leak through me
Maybe it's the way it's meant to be
I have to let it go
To go ahead
My journey 
To the place
All dread
I need to spread my wings
Fly though the world
Ignore the pain
Get over it
Because I have hope
A hope
And a dream
I'll turn it in a reality

Hey guys, I know I haven’t been active lately but hey, I will be going through your posts right now, I just need time, my head sorta feels like bursting soo🤷🏻‍♀️
But I am back now, for good.

Also to all of my readers in India, Happy Diwali!!

The beauty

Pleasant autumn wind blows
My hair covers my face
The leaves rustle as I walk
Yellow and red cover the ground

I take a moment to breathe in the air
I dance around the trees
Admiring the beauty
The peace and serenity

The World stops for me
I don't wish to loose this moment
But alas, like it autumn came
It will go away
Leaving no trace of it's beauty.......
