When you crush voices
What becomes of them
Do they lie by the curb
Wallowing in the dust
Or deep down they bury
Mired in shame and fury?

Will these seeds of valor
Unheard passion and power
Erupt from the ground
Spread and abound
In each corner and nook
As far as you can look.

Voices become words
Inspiring the herds
To listen and realize
There is always a price
When rulers don’t hear
When they only instill fear!

From the bosom of Earth
Rise war cries unheard
Of warriors and tribes
With the destiny to rewrite
Gory tales of oppression
To end years of suppression!

So it is across the aeons
Worlds fooled by charlatans
Will one day see the light;
Words are then mobilized
To break fetters of the mind
Rise and liberate mankind!

I am just ME … a soul streaming across constellations, over eons of turbulent changes and tranquil noises, perturbed by the visions that engulf me and ruffled by the oft complacence that challenges the change. Yet, I must travel further across the galaxies, in search of the ultimate metamorphosis. Until then, I sojourn in this life, engrossed in my earthly callings of a wife, mother, professional, writer, dreamer, and seeker. On this blog you will find a spectrum of fiction, poetry, reviews, thoughts, snippets, inspiration, experiences, voices, concerns, excerpts, and everything that the soul has gathered in her fold, over years of reading, searching, finding, losing, and discovering. I regularly indulge in various creative pursuits, like crochet, experimental cooking, reading, and writing, and I hold a managerial/editorial role in a financial services organization with a global footprint. For a long time, social media hijacked my personal writing space, as I was sharing more on Facebook and writing Tweet-sized poetry on Twitter. Social media is instant but temporary gratification. Ultimately, a writer needs their own space, and personal blogging provides that space. I had started a blog more than a decade ago but all things need to be infused with new life, emerge in a new avatar, and so it is with my new blog space. Let your love and encouragement pour into Blue Pen Strokes. Check out Aneesha Shewani (@felinemusings)
