Autism

Regret the mismatch

Wish I was like everybody else

Not because I want to

Don’t want them to take

The trouble of reaching

My levels

Though they think

To be better off

I know I am the special best

How magical

Balanced steps to a misbalanced life

Dis-balanced steps to a balanced life

I heard a friend is around

Hiding behind that corner

Enough for me for the rest of my life

Why then change

And honestly speaking

Have a secret desire

I pray for them

To be deprived of

Such wonderful life

About neetuwali

Hi! I am Neetu. Who am I? This question is very difficult to answer. Well! If you insist, let me reveal. I am a human and like every other human I eat, sleep, drink, dance, sing, laugh, smile, cry and so on. Hang on! There is a difference. Unlike most of the human beings, I breathe and when I breathe, I relax. When I am relaxed, I draw. I draw sketches of me in words. I have been orbiting around sun for forty years now. I started this journey on the Valentine day of 1974. I have seen people craving for heaven and I was born in the only heaven on earth (Kashmir). My Grandfather was a spiritual personality and a renowned poet of his time. Though he left me around 35 years ago, I couldn’t let him go. I carry him in my eyes and mind and will do that till the end of my life. I hate words, yet I am full of words. I know words cannot express, yet I express me through words, because they are the only medium I am familiar with. That is why I try to express me as much as possible with as minimum words as possible. When I did Masters in business administration, I never knew, writing will be the only business in my life. More than hobby writing is a necessity for me, because it helps me get the load of thoughts off my head. I don’t remember when it that I wrote my first poem was. But I surely know the time of my last poem. Surely,not before my last breath.

    In this journey of life we have to go balancing ourselves inpite of differences that we face among near and dear ones. One should be always positive and should feel that he is the best. There is always someone to understand us, it might be a good friend or almighty God at distance.
    Very inspiring thought! well expressed. Thank you.
