Wishing upon a star

Reply to the Daily Prompt Challenge:

Waiting Room

“Good things come to those who wait.” Do you agree? How long is it reasonable to wait for something you really want?


Wishing upon a star,
will only get you so far.
Ideas in your head won’t materialise ,
Unless you give it a try.

When you embark upon a journey,
The destination you will find at the end,
After you have proven your mettle,
After you have fought your battle,
It’s the winner who takes home the prize.

The journey may seem long,
The future may seem dark.
But you need to hold on to hope,
You need to wait for the spark.

Don’t give up on your dreams,
Don’t let your fears take the lead.
Stand tall in the face of tempest,
Find your courage when you need.

The Soulmates

They clung to each other,
the boy hiding the girl
trying to protect her,
from the stones being hurled at them.

The stormy sea roared below,
lightning thundered the night sky ,
darkness seemed to swallow them.
They stood on the cliff,
while the mob surrounded them.

The villagers  shouted and jeered
“Jump you wretched ones, jump!!”
“How dare you defy the social norms,
you are not meant to be together”.

They looked each other
and smiled, pitying the villagers
“Alas!! They don’t know love,
they don’t know they have wings”
and then they jumped,
not to fall but to fly .
