She won't look back


She won't look back

She won't look back,

As she walks away,

The obstacles a thing of the past,

The hinderances no longer last.


She won't look back,

Once she breaks the chain,

The taunts don't stop her,

The judgements don't scare her.


She won't look back,

Once she trusts herself,

She is a woman now,

Doesn't need anyone to approve of her.

[2:33 PM, 7/23/2021] Gauri Nadkarni Choudhary: I found Him instead

I tried looking for God

In the places mentioned by others,

In places of worship,

And in books of wisdom.

I have found Him instead,

In that first sip of water,

in the peak of hot summer,

or in the first sip of tea,

after being drenched in the rain.

I have found Him instead,

when I finally found a ride,

after walking on tired feet,

or when I finally rested my back,

after a long strenuous day.

I have found Him instead,

At the sight of a familiar face,

in a room full of strangers,

When I finally reach home,

walking alone a lone path.

I have found Him instead,

when the baby finally falls asleep,

And I can close my eyes,

when the last email is sent,

And I can play with my child.

I have found Him often,

in the warmth of a hug,

of a friend I met after long,

Or the comfort of my mother's lap,

when I visit her after months.

I know He is all around me

like an umbrella in the rains,

I just have to trust Him

and He will hold my hand along the way.
