Don’t trap your spirit
In the dark rooms
It needs sunlight
and the free air
It needs to listen
Nature’s murmur
It needs to fly
to the vast openness
of the sky.
It needs to fathom
the blue sea depth.
It needs to count
the love,faith and truth.
Don’t suffocate it with fear
Don’t throttle its life
Allow free flow of colours
and all the nature’s bounties.

High Time to Go

Contacts and relations
Small wishes and big dreams
Jostle for space
Dreams remain always dreams
Words remain unsaid
Silence says its words
Half said sentences
Write full meaning on hearts.

 I’m sure you’ve received dozens like it, promising exciting job-applicable traits like “Team-Player!” and “Hard-Working” and “Dedicated” and “Passionate!” I’m sure all of them have various examples of such traits like “That one time I saved a several hundred thousand dollar deal from falling through the cracks just because I spell-checked every word in a 200-page memo (showcasing their dedication, attention-to-detail, meticulousness, potential brilliance)” or “That other time I was involved in landing an account that you may know of by the name of HUGE TECH COMPANY (demonstrating their perseverance, persuasion, competitiveness).” I’m sure they are well-spoken individuals, promising longevity, increased revenue, innovative ground-breaking ideas, extensive connections and above all, a personality…
